Krisha: Going Black and White

I love the look of a simple black and white card, and that is what I have to share today,  The small, doubled stamped image is from Rogue Redhead Designs RRD011: Nature Notes, and layered onto black card stock.  A black and white Gingham ribbon was added before mounting onto matching background paper, then onto an other layer of black card stock.  I decided to do something a little different and placed the images to the far left of the card base, then used the sentiment form Rogue Redhead Designs RRD013: This N That in the lower right corner. Clean and simple!!

Debi Ryan: Dreaming of the Future

I have an A4 Art journal page to share with you today. I've sprayed the background with Various Dylusion sprays, and then I've stamped using Various stamps from the Relish Reading set, and the handwriting stamp from the Behind the Scenes set.

Art Journal Page

I stamped the day dreaming girl onto Glossy cardstock and coloured her with Promarkers, I then cut her out and popped her on the page using foam tape. I then doodled the rest of the tree in.

I hope Thursday finds you well, and have a great rest of the week.

Barbara Washington: Grin & Bear It

Today I got a chance to play in my craft room, so play I did. I decided just to have some fun with my stamps and a stamp set that  truly says "fun" is Getting Grizzly. These adorable bears just bring a smile to one's face. For my background I used a cut piece of brown plaid scrapbook paper and layered it over a piece of dark brown cardstock so that the corner showed. I thought it made a rustic background. I stamped and fussy cut the bears. The sentiment was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock. I distressed the sides and then attached it to the card with four brads. To embellish the rest of the card, I added a few more brads and a bit of twine. I think the bears should feel comfortable in the rustic setting and that the resulting card makes a perfect masculine card.

Helene Huber: Veiled

Happy Friday morning!  I hope you all are getting a good start to your weekend.  We just wrapped up our small town homecoming, called Old Settlers--parades, food booths, carnival rides.  Many photos of Old Settlers horse drawn parade floats and folks dressed in beautiful attire from days gone by were posted on Facebook.  I, of course, was wearing cut-offs and flip flops when I picked up my funnel cake and lemon shake-up.  But if I had lived in another era, I'm sure I would have gone uptown in fashionista style.

All of which leads me to my latest Rogue tag using the Milliner Misses stamp plate.  I paired it with the background stamp found in the Just Sayin' stamp plate.  It reminds me of the veils that used to be attached to women's hats.  I didn't have any real hat netting, but I found a perfect match in my stash--no doubt from a produce bag--but, hey, it works for my veiled theme.

If you haven't done so already, please look for our latest Rebel challenge (sidebar).   The theme just happens to be fashionista

trisha too: Still lovin' my Rogue background stamps!

Right now I'm in the midst of making tons of atcs for a project, and I love the
added pop of stamping an awesome Rogue background over a Gelli plate print,
or mixed media background:

The "my girl" atc features the sequins waste background from the Behind the Scenes
plate, but it's also available as a single.  "I Would Be True" is sheet music and painty
stamped with one of my favorite backgrounds ever, the Almanac from Relish Reading,
and yes, it is also available as a single.

You have to admit, those atc just would not look as good without the added layer
of stamping, now, would they?

Have a great week, everyone!

Vicki Robertson: "Love Your Style"

Hi, Vicki here on the blog today...

Our Rebel Challenge is posted and under way!  This month's theme is "Fashionista", a great opportunity to put those Milliner Misses to work again.  Love those ladies!

Of course, using the Milliner Misses called for a vintage style card. 
I found some Scribble Scrabble papers that I have been hoarding for a long time.  The collection, Simply Stylish, was a favorite and a good choice for the background of my Fashionista card.  

The Memory Box Tall Dress Form and Camila Evening Dress Die-cuts worked well with the theme also.  I used some Graphic 45 Bohemian Bazaar paper for the dress and added a ric rac belt with a rose buckle, feather and two pearl topped stickpins.  The postcard is from the same Graphic 45 collection tooI inked the edges, distressed it for a more vintage look and added more roses.

The address area of the postcard was the perfect place to stamp the sentiment, "Love Your Style".  I used the Milliner Misses with all three ladies on it, but instead of ink, used my markers and colored only one of the ladies.  I stamped her across the top of the postcard and added some mini pearls for her necklace.

Featured Product

From my stash...
Clearsnap/Colorbox Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink
Prima Mulberry Rose and Stick Pin
Queen & Co. Pearls

  I hope you are inspired to play along with our RRD Fashionista Challenge!

You could be the next winner of a $15 voucher to the Rogue Redhead Store!

Sharon Briss: Totally Beachy

As the bright Summer sun starts to fade into the more muted tones of the September skies, I am trying to hold onto those last days of perfect beach weather.

 For these cards, I used a simple ink-a-licious combo!  I started by inking up my craft sheet with distress ink and then misting it.  After smooching my glossy paper through the distress ink and letting it dry, I got out my alcohol inks and pounced 3 to 4 colors around the edges of my panels. Before calling it day with my inky-goodness, I splashed around some alcohol blending solution and let that work its magic.

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

Once dry, I stamped my Beach Babes onto the panels with StazOn.  I kept the cards themselves rather plain.  Although my camera bleached them out a bit, the card base is a lovely butter yellow. that matches the center of the image panel.  I framed the images in black to tie-in with the Jet Black StazOn.  I then added a simple sentiment to each.

Krisha going Rogue with CAS

Happy Friday everybody!  Today I have a very quick clean and simple card for you using the This N That RRD013 sentiment and Nature Notes RRD011 flower.  The sentiment was stamped with black ink, but the flower stamp was colored with water base marker, spritzed and then stamped onto the card. Now how simple is that?

Debi Ryan: Sepia Fashionista

Fashionista Midge

I think Midge might be a favorite  of all of ours, here she is in Sepia. Looking lovely and vintage.
I've embossed her on glossy cardstock with a copper embossing powder and then coloured her in with Tea Dye and Walnut Stain Distress inks, with just a hint of Victorian Velvet.
I've gone over the top with my bow and some pearl trim and pretty roses.
A true Fashionista.

Come and join the Rebel Fashionista Challenge this month.

Colleen Oxford: Play with 3D

I have been wanting to play around with creating 3D stamped images. They're cute and versatile because it's up to you on what you'd like to see popping forth.

Here are my creations using the sitting bear from Getting Grizzly and the Flower from Just Sayin'. I did also stamp out the cat from Just Sayin' as well but ran out of time (Saving him for a rainy day)

Just stamp out a few of the images and maybe and one more than you think you're going to use just in case.

First figure out what you want to pop up and how many layers you need. If I were to do these over I would color everything instead of just whats going to be showing.

Here are the finished pieces!!!

A little side angle :)

Be sure to swing by Rogue Redhead Designs to check out these cuties as well as the other Fabulous stamp plates.

Barbara Washington: In Fashion

Card Closed

Card Open
I thought that today I would share my card created for the latest rebel  challenge which is Fashionista. Of course, I went to the wonderful Milliner Misses stamp sheet for my image and sentiment.
I started with a piece of two sided designer paper and cut my card base using a Sizzix flip-it die. I stamped the image and the sentiment on white cardstock and die cut them with a Cheery Lynn oval. I used watercolor pencils to color the image and distress ink to color the edges. I highlighted the flower centers with the new Ranger distress glitter.
I think this lovely little lady and the fabulous sentiment truly symbolize the theme perfectly.

Simple Set Sunday: Paint Sample Simplicity

The lazy days of Summer are upon us so it's definitely time for another Simple Set post!  As with all these posts, the emphasis on creating a set of cards quickly and simply.  One of my fav materials for adding extra interest without much muss or fuss is to use the sample paint chip cards from hardware stores.  They always have delightful color combinations and are a great size for stamping!

For this set, I stamped a focal image on the paint chip with Jet Black StazOn ink (no smearing that way) and trimmed it up.  Then, I picked a simple designer paper with either a simple or a subtle pattern.  I paired each image with a simple sentiment stamped in the same Jet Black ink on white cardstock.  I matted the sentiment in black to compliment the ink. 

Here's how they came out!

Helene Huber: Newsboy

I can't believe we're already into August and summer soon will be over.  Perhaps Carpe Diem is a fitting quote for capturing that last bit of vacation, sun and sand. 

Although this lad most likely has a book under his arm, I have always thought of him as a newspaper boy.  Today's card is no different....  There is a reason why he's a paper boy which I explain on my blog,


Stamp almanac background stamp (Relish Reading plate) with jet black Archival Ink onto beige card stock.  Cover with glue.  Crush tissue paper, then place on top of almanac card and press tissue and glue with brayer.  Trim and edge with Ranger Weathered Wood ink.

Using Spellbinders Nestabilities Curved Rectangle die cuts, cut two mats.
Mats:  Rusty Pickle School Daze Detention and Heidi Grace cardstock pad (text side)
Edge mats with Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Marker
Stamp boy (Relish Reading plate) with jet black Archival Ink onto beige card stock, fussy cut leaving a beige margin around image for contrast against mat.

Stamp sentiment Carpe Diem (seize the day)  from Nature Notes plate with jet black Archival Ink onto beige card stock.  Trim and mat onto reverse of Detention paper.

Rip a scrap of the Detention paper, edge with Antique Linen, and haphazardly fold.

Assemble onto Card:  Heidi Grace cardstock pad (plain black side) using pop dots where needed.

Monochrome Miss in the Mail

Last week, I received this lovely card from She, who just finished up her stint as Guest Rogue with RRD recently.

I love that, eventhough this beautiful creation only contains two colors,  it has so many great textures, details and patterns.  Dot looks very at home spotlighted among all these elegant elements.

Stamps: Dot and sentiment from Millner Misses (Rogue Redhead Designs)

Krisha: Missing You, a Post Card

Krisha here today to share an other mail art post card using a stamp from the RRD Relish Reading RRD001 plate.  This girl sitting in the chair was the main reason I bought this first plate of stamps, she just seems so deep in thought.  Today I stamped her onto a pattern paper, to keep it simple enough to go through the mail. It is mounted on plain white cs for weight.  I colored her with markers and sprayed with a sealer incase any wet hands, or weather might be involved.  The sentiment is one of those odd one with no manufacturer.  I just love the way this one turned out and wish I had ore of that background paper, it just fit for the stamp and for the post card.

Debi Ryan: Blue for a Boy

Like many of you I was pleased to hear of the safe arrival of Baby Cambridge :-)  Getting Grizzly is such a cute set, perfect for a baby card. Here's one of the cuties in blue. I've stamped him with Archival Black ink on glossy cardstock and then coloured him with Promarkers. I then layered some patterned paper, ribbon and lace and finished it off with some heart brads.

Enjoy the rest of your week.
