Summer Assignments - Holiday Inspiration Club

The Rogue Crew is taking a break until September to relax, refresh and rev up for the fabulous Fall, but  we didn't want you to fall behind on your Holiday Inspiration Club projects while we are away!

We've got all three prompts for the Summer months and we want you to get busy creating your Holiday cards for 2014.

We're going to start with June's theme - Stripes and Spots.  You can use ink, paper or stamps to add spots and/or dots to your latest holiday-themed creations.

Here's a few to get you started from the archives:

Stamps: Trees from Candy Kisses

Stamps from Candy Kisses

Stamps from Snow Hugs

Next, we've got July's theme - Snowflake Season.  Add snowflakes to your cards!  Again, you can use ink, paper or stamps to achieve this goal.

Here's another few samples from the archives to get start you off!

Stamps from A Winter's Tale (Beatrix Potter collection)

Finally, in August, you can play with a little sketch for your holiday-themed cards!

Here it is a little bigger:

So whatever your plans for this amazing summer, you have all your prompts to keep you going for whenever you find yourself having time to work on your card stack for Winter 2014!

Share them on this post as you create them!

Krisha and the Mini Rogue Book

This is a mini book measuring 3" by 3" and the base of the book was made from one sheet of 12" X 12" paper.  This is the cover stamped with a background stamp for the Rogue Redheads Behind the Scenes plate RRD012, and tied with a cream colored sheer ribbon.
The inside, or the base of the book, when cut and folded makes 7 pocket pages.  I have used only Rogue Redhead Designs images  through out the whole book, with Washi tape boarders.  I am not going to show each page as that would make a VERY long post, but you get the idea.
Here I opened the book (pardon the binder clips) to the pages that I used some of the images from Nature Notes: plate RRD011 ,  Each page has a pocket the houses a tag. Each tag is stamped on both sides according to the plate of stamps I was using. In total I used 8 of the plates that is offered by Rogue Redhead Designs to make this mini book.

Plus the two mentioned above.

Happy Father's Day

Wishing everyone a fabulous and fantastic Father's Day!

Here's a few Father's Day cards that have gone Rogue with our Getting Grizzly set!

The first is an idea for kids to give to their dad.  Aren't these two bears adorable?

Stamps: Sitting Bear, Standing Bear from Getting Grizzly;
sentiment from Bits and Pieces

The next card is for Mom to show she appreciates Dad.  It's definitely  more girly paper-wise but I like it.

Stamps: Honey Bear and sentiment from Getting Grizzly;

Lastly, we have one for Dad's Mom to show a little Father's Day festiveness to her son.  Still manly, but even grown men are little boys to their mothers.

Stamps: Baby Bear and sentiment from Getting Grizzly;

Celebrate Dad's Day with flair and go a little rogue if you dare!

The Rogue Crew is Taking a Vacation

So with this gorgeous weather upon us, I, as Chief Rogue and Senior Troublemaker of RRD, have given the lovely ladies of the Rogue Crew, our talented design team, the summer off!

"Now, why on earth would you do that?", you ask.  Well, as a papercrafter and avid stamper myself, I realize that everyone needs a break to refresh, relax and renew.  That is never more true than with artists!

So....until September, there are no deadlines, no blog hops and no specific projects to be done for my fabulous team of stampers!  That said, I know these amazing artists will not take a break from their art.

Follow the arty and inky summertime adventures of each of our designers through their individual blogs (in no particular order of awesome):

Helene - Lotsa Scrap from 2amscrapper
Krisha - Krisha's Keepsakes
Vicki - He"Artful" Validation of Vicki
Debi - My Bird Flying Free
Trisha - Easily Amused, Hard to Offend...
Barbara - Magic Delights

I will still be bopping in on and off all Summer with RRD store news, some new samples and a couple ideas to inspire my Rogue Stampers out there!  You can also see my RRD and non-RRD stamping on my blog - Ill Tempered Ink.

Keep stamping,
- Shar Briss

Krisha with a Father's Day Card

Well, here it is the month of June already and of course that means getting Father's Day cards prepared.  Using an image from the Relish Reading: plate RRD 001 and an image from the This N That: plate RRD013, and a couple of die cuts.........all mounted on a rust card stock and then onto a cream card base, I made my first Father's Day card for this year.  The cover was cut 1/4" back and a strip of the rust card stock was placed on the inside back cover.......just to add a little interest.
