Barbara Washington: Read in Order to Live

Today I am featuring a school related card in the current challenge colors. I think lilac, navy and white go fantastically together. To create my card, I started with a 5 inch square piece of white cardstock. I first used the Dylusions stencil, dotted flowers, with milled lavendar distress ink and inked the dots. Then I used the Dylusions letter jumble stencil with chipped sapphire distress ink to ink the alphabet letters. I  used stamps from the RRD Relish Reading plate for my image and sentiment. The flower is a white silk flower which I tinted with milled lavender distress stain.  Have you checked out the current challenge #15 (use the colors lilac, navy, and white)? You might win some great stamps.

Debi Ryan: Masquerade

I have to say that i think Carnival Dreams might be my absolute fav Rogue stamp set. I just love this stamp of the lovers!

For this one layer card I sprayed some ink and then stamped with Staz On, then coloured with prismacolor pencils and metallic pens. I love it when a card turns out exactly as it was in my head :-)

Colleen Oxford: This Delicious Solitude

So, my favorite season is upon us but I wanted to hold onto one last taste of another beautiful season. Spring.  And what better way than to use the soft colors and freshness that Spring brings with it.

Stamps: Flower and Sentiment from Nature Notes half-plate

Rogue Redheads Nature Notes is such a versatile set with Fabulous images and sentiments.  I have never made a white on white card and thought that this flower image really complimented the simple feel I was going for.

Barbara Washington: Just Sayin' Happy Birthday

Card Closed

Card Open
Here's a fun birthday card. I used several Rogue Redhead Designs stamp sets to create my card. I started with the image, the front sentiment and the inside flower design from the set Just Sayin'. The decorative corners are from Getting Grizzly. And I used the "Happy birthday" from the new Nature Notes.  I love how versatile these stamps are. In addition, I used a Sizzix flip it die to make the card (Don't you love how the center flips over from image to sentiment) and my cardstock is from Websters Pages.

Jean Franks Beck: Another Take on the Rebel Color Challenge

Since lilac is one of my favorite colors (and flowers!), I couldn't resist having a go at this month's Rebel Challenge to use Lilac, Navy, and White.  The crisp white inspired me to go with a basically clean and simple card (but with a little shabby chic ribbon thrown in - couldn't resist).  I had lots of lilac patterned papers in my stash, and some StazOn ink in a most gorgeous Midnight Blue.  I stamped the bunting from Just Sayin' in navy on various lilac hued papers and glued them together in a breezy line across some embossed white cardstock.  I kept the dotty pattern going on the bottom, where I stamped the sentiment from Relish Reading in navy.  A bit of ribbon and this simple card was done in a flash. Stamping in navy is a refreshing change from basic black or brown, and is a great place to start for this color challenge - I hope you can join in!

Laura Liddell: New Stamp Plate!

I love this new stamp plate from Rogue Redhead designs. It has such a reflective feel to it.

I decided to stamp this lovely image onto paper that would reflect the start of a beautiful sunset. Then layered it onto some pinky coral paper to enhance the pink sky at night feeling. Very little else was needed especially with this apt saying. Anything else added would disturb "this delicious solitude."

Debi Ryan: Monochrome

I've wet embossed this image from the Relish Reading set, then watercoloured using different pink tones. I added a sentiment from the Beach Babes set and some pearls.

Barbara Washington: Bookmarks

It's back to school time and what says school more than bookmarks. I had so much fun playing with my different Rogue Redhead Design stamp sets to make these. For all three bookmarks I started with pieces of two-sided design paper. All images are stamped with Ranger ink and colored with distress markers. Once the images were stamped and colored, I inserted the piece into a plastic bookmark sleeve and added a tassle at the top.
The first bookmark is stamped with images and designs from Nature Notes. The second bookmark is stamped using images and designs from Carnival Dreams. The third bookmark uses images from Getting Grizzly.
These bookmarks will soon have a good home. My grandson's teacher's assistant is celebrating her birthday and the class is having a party. She will be receiving these bookmarks as a gift.

Zoe Sanderson: Nature Notes Take 4

Hello, here is my last guest project to share with you here at Rogue Redhead Designs.   It's been great fun working with these designs they offer so many different ideas.  The plate that I've been playing with is of course the new one Nature Notes.

Autumn inspires my last card, the trees are putting on their most colourful leaves.   The skies have a misty quality and Clarice (as I call her) is in reflective mood.

If you take time to look over the blog and samples made by the great team here you'll find all sorts of styles and ideas for these stamps.

Here's some easy ideas to get you started! 

You can do a lot of different things with this color combination.  You can go complex and very inky like this sample.  I stamped a number of images onto a white panel using Versamark ink.  I sprinkled clear embossing powder over these inked images and heat embossed them.  I then sponged plum and lavender ink across the whole panel.  I used the lavender ink to over stamp the same image slightly offset to the embossed ones.  I then put the panel between two pieces of copy paper and ran a heated iron over the paper, removing the embossing powder.  Make sure to keep your panel between the sheets of copy paper when ironing as you don't want your iron to get embossing powder all over it!  I stamped the Sandy Beach Background with plum ink over the whole panel.  Finally, I added more images randomly using Paris Dusk Memento.  I matted the panel with navy cardstock and mounted it on a white card base.

Stamps: flower silhouette, vines and Carpe Diem from Nature Notes, cosmos blossom
, lily of the valley, sun, and Fleur from Floriculture, Sandy Beach background
from Beach Babes; Thinking of You from Bits and Pieces (Rogue Redhead Designs)

You could also go completely minimal with the colors like this Clean and Simple sample.  I simply stamped the cat onto a white card and cut the bottom portion of the panel so that the cat was sitting outside the area of the panel.  I stamped the cat onto a piece of purple designer paper, cut it out and pieced it onto the central panel.  I matted the central panel with navy blue and attached it to a white base card.

Stamps: Happy Birthday from Nature Notes
and cat from Just Sayin' (Rogue Redhead Designs)

Or you could do something in-between like the next two cards.  For the one below, I stamped the Sandy Beach background from Beach Babes and the Almanac Page background from Relish Reading onto white paper.  I sponged some additional lilac ink onto the background.  I then stamped the woman with Tuxedo Black Memento onto one panel of white and one panel of lilac cardstock after stamping it onto my inky background.   I colored the woman's head and neck on the white panel with copics and I cut the woman's coat out of the lilac cardstock.  I layered both of these pieces onto the inked background and then trimmed and matted it.  I added the sentiment and the panel to the white base card.

Stamps: woman and sentiment from Nature Notes; Sandy Beach background from Beach Babes
and Almanac Page from Relish Reading (Rogue Redhead Designs)

Finally, this card uses some paper piecing.  I stamped the central image, Dot from Milliner Misses, onto a piece of X-Press It blending paper and colored it with copics.  I also stamped the same image onto a piece of lilac plaid and a piece of lilac gingham.  I paper pieced these onto the white image.  I then matted the image in navy and added the additional layers of navy cardstock and designer paper.

Simple Set Sunday: Scene Peeks

Simple does not need to be boring and flat doesn't need to be yawn-inducing.  Today, I am playing with some one-layer cards while playing with the idea of dimension. 

I started experimenting when I was playing with my Nature Notes set.  I wanted to see the woman in front of those lovely trees and I was fiddling around with how to mask it when I thought of creating a window.  An idea was born. 

In this first card, I used the stamped borders of both the image on the front of the card and the image on the inside to contain my little scene.  I stamped the inside image first and,  placing my card on my tuled cutting mat, I aligned the image that would be on the front of the card.  After closing the card and rechecking (truthfully about six times) the position of my focal image, I stamped the woman on the front of the card.  I colored both images with copic markers and then set about cutting out my window with some sharp scissors.

This is the view when the card is standing.  You can see both the front image and a peek of the scene behind...hence the name of this post. 

Stamps: woman and sentiment from Nature Notes (Rogue Redhead Designs)

For this card, I decided to use two sentiments - one inside and one outside.  When the card is open you can see the lovely autumn scene behind our lovely young woman.

Stamps: woods scene and sentiment from Nature Notes (Rogue Redhead Designs)

I was so happy with how this card turned out that I made a couple more and realized how versatile this little format could become.  This is a card using the Getting Grizzly set.  My thought was to show this slightly grumpy bear a little apart from his pals in the tree.  I used my oval cutting guide to create the oval that surrounds him with a black marker.  I did not want to create any folds or scrunched bits when I cut out the "excess" around each image, so I used a hole punch to give me a starting place in the white space that I would be removing.

For this inside of this one, I decided to use the group of bears in the tree.  I colored the sky in a very soft blue and let it have an undefined edge to keep it all "natural" feeling.  The bee is there because I just love that bee!

Stamps:Bear group and sentiment from Getting Grizzly (Rogue Redhead Designs)

For my final play with this format, I dug out my Beach Babes set.  Summer is slowly setting for the year, so I decided to create a sunset seaside scene.  The boy is on the beach in the foreground looking out to sea.  The sentiment reads "My life is like a stroll upon the beach, as near the ocean's edge as I can go".  It's a quote I love by Thoreau. 

Stamps: beach boy and sentiment from Beach Babes (Rogue Redhead Designs)

On the inside of the card, you get the full view of what he was looking at - a sailboat on a sunset-lit backdrop.

Why not play with creating your own scene peeks?  I would love to see what you create!
