Krisha Shows Us Milliner Misses in Maize

Krisha was caught using her Milliner Misses set! We love that she has created her beautiful cards in these soft shades of yellow.

Her first card shows off a stylish trio along with one of the sentiments from Milliner Misses! She has added soft shades of yellow to the image and added lacy embellishments. Isn't the soft white border pretty?

In her second card, Krisha has used all the lovely Misses, using soft yellows and white for her color palette.

To see more of Krisha's lovely art, check out her blog - Krisha's Keepsakes!

Stephanie Severin: Unconditional Love

I love the little cat in the Just Sayin' set ... for this card I stamped him in charcoal, cut him out, colored him with a sketch pencil, and attached him using tiny pieces of foam tape for dimension.


Remember, you have until March 4th to join the Rebel Challenge to stamp your own background paper.  I used the three square block from Just Sayin' on gridded designer paper (all papers are Authentique's Journey Collection) to create my modern background design.

The sketch is from a new sketch blog called iSpy Sketches

Sharon Briss: Playing with Paper

The Rogue Crew is playing along with Gingersnap Creations this month. They just posted a color challenge to "Use Two Colors Only". I chose Coffee and Cream for mine with a little cafe au lait thrown in.

Once, I had the first card, I couldn't resist making some more. I used vanilla and chocolate cardstock and one double-sided paper and one script paper. The layouts use similar elements but are not the exactly the same. I made two rectangular cards (5.5" x 4.25"), one large square card (5.5" x 5.5") and one mini card (3.25" x 3.25").

I used the characters from Just Sayin' and some of the sentiments from Bits and Pieces. I colored the figures with copic markers using only colors in the brown family.

I really like how they came out! What do you think?








Don't forget! You can still get the Just Sayin' plate on sale for $17.60 today!

Don't miss out...just sayin'

Stamped Background: Laura Liddell


The current challenge at Rogue Redheads is to use a background stamp. I have used the background stamp from Beach Babes and paired it up with an image from Just Sayin'. This was then coloured with watercolours  and mounted onto some backing papers and a grungy edge added. The challenge is on going until March 4th. So why not join in?

Holly Brown: Stroll upon the Beach


Good morning! It's Holly posting today. I wanted to try one of the newest techniques from Technique Junkies called Faux Painted Paneling, so I pulled out the Beach Babes stamps from Rogue Redhead Designs.

I started by stamping the large sand background all over the blue card base, then I added the Faux Painted Paneling to the bottom of the card. The sweet little beach babes were stamped with blue ink and I sponged the same color all around the edges. I used a distress tool to rough up the edges of the stamped piece as well as the kraft layer behind it. The sentiment was adhered directly on the Faux Painted Paneling.

I tried to add ribbon, twine, buttons, something to the card, but nothing seemed to work. This card was destined to be Clean And Simple (CAS). This really lets the stamped image take center stage with the Faux Painted Paneling adding a little interest to the piece.

We're Relishing Kathie McGuire's Rogue Art!

Kathie McGuire has created two beautiful cards from the Relish Reading plate. She has created a lot of depth in her art, not only in her layers but also with her coloring.

In this card, you can see Kathie's wonderful coloring of Marie. Behind the circle Marie sits in, Kathie has added a colorful panel stamped with the Almanac background. Her details are gorgeous from the bow to her fabulous use of a border punch!

In her second card, Kathie has once again combined stunning papers and embellishments with a beautifully presented focal image. Once again using the Almanac Background, Kathie has set a wonderfully colored Sally in the middle of a stunning panel encircled with a lacy border.

To see more of Kathie's fabulous art, check out her blog - The Happy Room.

Beverly G: Pouring Rain

A Great Good Tuesday Morning! I've got a CAS card for you this morning. When this stamp set was released and I say this boy and this sentiment I immediately thought of my oldest son. He's just one of these people that a grey cloud follows around.
I've used the Torn Edge Technique to get the effect at the bottom of the card. It's actually supposed to look like a piece of designer paper with out the bulk of another piece of paper, but this looked so much like an ocean of water puddles and he looks so determined, I couldn't resist making our guy walk on water. I created the word bubble in Open Office then stamped the sentiment and inked the edges.
I just love the quirkyness of this new Just Sayin' stamp set.

Happy Creating--

Penny Bennington: More Rogue Flowers

I wanted to see what else I could do with the flower stamp from Just Sayin' and stamped it onto various vintage book pages and cut them out. I layered a smaller, slightly crumpled one with a larger one and left other small ones plain. I also cut out the individual petals of a couple flowers, used bundled sage Distress Stain on them and voila - leaves! I adhered them all to a 7Gypsies book cover with a stamped background panel in the center. The background panel collage is made up of the flourish from Relish Reading and words and quotes from Floriculture all on paper rubbed with distress ink and flicked with water.

Here's a closer view of the flowers - both basic and dimensional.

Sharon Briss: Anchored by a Stamped Background

I have been busy making cards with all those stamped backgrounds I created. One of them seemed to be calling out to me to create a card with the sea in mind. To start, I picked this great anchor from Beach Babes and used a sentiment for the same set.

I paired it with this background which includes 3 background stamps - Crazy Dots from Snow Hugs, Netted from Just Sayin' and Sandy Beach from Beach Babes.

I really like how it came together!

If you like creating stamped backgrounds, why not join in the newest Rebel Challenge? You can show off your awesome inky backgrounds!

Deb Corder: Stamped Background Tag

The Rebel Challenge this month is stamped backgrounds. I love the large background stamp in the RELISH READING set. For some reason I really like print and script background stamps. I use then frequently as "vintage" grunge.

Having just finished my Valentine's Day collage tags, I decided to do my stamped background on a tag. I recently purchased some kraft tags, so I stamped my print background with Archival Coffee. And added some swirls in Archival Crimson. The label at the bottom came from some designer paper. The sentiment and roses are part of the FLORICULTURE set.

Stamp out your background and join the challenge!

Barbara Washington: Masquerade

The current Rebel Challenge is to use a stamped background. I thought I'd share a card where the background was made using one of the stamps from Carnival Dreams. I did use a stamp positioner to keep my rows straight. After stamping, I sprayed the background with several colors of Glimmer Mist. To finish off the look, I used a gold Viva Decor Pearl Pen to add the little pearl beads. I think the background looks a bit like the bead curtains so popular years ago. I stamped my focal image, the cute smaller couple from Carnival Dreams and die cut it using a Spellbinders die. The image is backed by a second Spellbinders die.
I want to share a second card today. Here I used the larger couple on Carnival Dreams as the focal image. I used a doily frame die cut from Cheery Lynn to frame the image. The background was done using the marbled smooch technique from the Oct/Nov 2010 Technique Junkies newsletter.
I love working with this set of stamps. They are so festive and happy.

Stephanie Severin: Imagination

This month's Rebel Challenge is to stamp your own background paper.  




I combined the flower from Just Sayin' in gold; the sandy background from Beach Babes in medium blue; and the block design from Floriculture in royal blue to create my stamped background using colors from this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge.


The main panel image and sentiment are from Relish Reading.  I finished with some tiny gem-embellished butterflies using CPS Sketch #5 for their Anniversary Celebration.

Jennifer Ingle: Happy, Happy Birthday!

Well, I am excited to be sharing another card using the brand new Just Sayin' set with all of you! And...because today just so happens to be my birthday, I decided to forgo the Happy UNbirthday stamp in that one and, instead, combined it with the fabulous Bits and Pieces plate where I found a wonderful Happy Birthday sentiment option! I love combining my stamp sets!

Happy Birthday


I stamped the wonderful border repeatedly to achieve this graphic design. The circles are punched from orange cardstock.

Happy Birthday (detail)


I just love the graphic design that came from that wonderful border and a few simple circles! I hope you enjoy it, too! Have a Happy MY BIRTHDAY!!!! YAY! LOL!

Jingle Out!

Rebel Challenge #8: Stamped Background

Thanks to everyone who played our last Rebel Challenge! Your fabulous Frosty creations were too cool!

This month, we've got another idea to get your creative juices flowing! In Rebel Challenge #8, we're asking you to

Use a Stamped Background


1) You can use any products to participate in this challenge. You do not have to use Rogue Redhead Designs products but it would be fabulous if you did!

2) Your submission must include some stamping.

3) Please read the directions for the challenge. We like to add a twist here and there. Your submission must include a stamped background panel.

4) Links that are not to a single post (ie only to a general blog post) will not be accepted.

5) All submission posts need to include a link back to this challenge to be eligible for the challenge prize.

One challenge winner will be drawn randomly from the qualified submissions for a $15.00 US voucher at the Rogue Redhead Designs Store.

This challenge will end on March 4, 2012. The winner will be announced on March 7, 2012 and will have until April 7, 2012 to claim their prize.

Here's some easy ideas to get you started!

You can use your stamped backgrounds to make bold backgrounds for Artist Trading Cards and then stamp coordinating images and sentiments. I used the Sandy Beach background from Beach Babes, the Crazy Dot background from Snow Hugs and the Netted background from Just Sayin' to create this particular effect. I then used images and sentiments from the Just Sayin' plate to finish off.

Artwork by Sharon Briss

You could make a wonderfully nautical card like the one below. Holly has layered the Sandy Beach Background from Beach Babes with the Netted Background from Just Sayin' for her stamped background. The sailboat and the sentiment are also from the Beach Babes plate. Don't you love the depth that was achieved with this ink-layered background.

Artwork by Holly Brown

You could also used your stamped background as a fun way to highlight a simple image like the one below. This cheery background was created using the Almanac background from Relish Reading over the Crazy Dot background from Snow Hugs and finished off with the mini Swirl background from Candy Kisses. The main image and sentiment is from Carnival Hugs.

Join us throughout the month for some other challenge inspirations from the Design Team as well as many other great projects!

To see some of the stamped backgrounds possible by combining some of your Rogue Redhead background stamps, check out our post from last week.

Your turn! Find your creative rebel spirit!

Floriculture Tag and Pan Pastels: Laura Liddell



This is one of the items I made for the Masking Tape challenge currently running over on Gingersnaps, but I decided to post a different one. This is now being shown here.

The two stamps used are from the Floriculture plate.

First I adhered Tim Holtz tape onto the tag and then swiped the tag with gesso. Once dried I added some pan pastels which coloured differently where the gesso was underneath. I then decided to take some of the masking tape off as you can see. I inked the stamp with versamark embossing pad and stamped. Then added a darker shade of pan pastel over the stamped image. Then the same stamp was re inked with Black Archival and over stamped. "Le Jardin" was stamped onto masking tape and adhered to the tag. The edges were darkened and ribbon attached.

Holly Brown: Stylish Misses and Faux Silk Fleur

Good morning! It's Holly posting today, and I have some Rogue eye candy to share with you. My favorite Rogue Redhead Designs set is the Milliner Misses set and here's a card I created with the three stylish misses stamp:


I absolutely love the way this card looks, from the old-fashioned paper in the background to the distressed edges, with the lace and flowers for embellishments. I used the Torn Frames technique from Technique Junkies on the dark brown layer behind the stamped ladies. The ladies were colored with Copic markers and then I sponged some Antique Linen distress ink on the edges before distressing them. Ahhhhhhhhhhh that card just makes me happy. :-)

The next card I'm sharing is the one I created for a challenge over on the Gingersnaps Creations blog. Rogue Redhead Designs is sponsoring their challenges this month, and this card was for their Words of Wisdom challenge. I used the Faux Silk technique in the background with the Floriculture stamp set and kept the card light for that spring-time feel.


There's some great deals over in the Rogue Redhead Designs store. Go check them out here. Have fun shopping!

Beverly G: Mardi Gras

A Great Good Tuesday Morning! It's just about time to break out your party beads, masks, and crowns. Mardi Gras will be starting soon and just in time for the big party is the newly released stamp set Carnival Dreams.
Glossy Card stock, and Alcohol Inks are the beginnings of this card. I used Raisin, Bottle, and Gold alcohol ink. Even though I used the same colors the 2 backgrounds I created look very different. The one I stamped the couple on is more ethereal like. I went around the edge of the first background with a gold Sharpie Paint pen and attached it to the card front. I stamped the couple, cut them out with an oval coluzzle shape cutter and went around the edge with a purple metallic marker. I attached the gold braid to the back of the oval with Scor-Tape and then attached to the card front with dimensionals. I created the Mardi Gras label stack with a McGil Vintage Label punch, and 2 Stampin' Up punches using some metallic paper I had in my stash. I colored the moon with a Clear Star gel pen, her heart necklace with a purple Spica Glitter pen, and added the tiny gold flat beads for just the right finishing touch.
I'm thinking this might make a good party invitation.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥

Penny Bennington: Crayon Flowers

I made these flowers while playing around with the flower stamp from Just Sayin'. They are simply crayon shavings melted between two pieces of glassine (waxed paper would work too). I thought they made cute little embellishments to use.

I adhered them to this page in my art journal that has a base of torn textured papers and added a short poem by Edna St.Vincent Millay.
