Rubbernecker - Fashion, Florals & Weeds (Oh My!) Blog Hop!

I'm so excited to be part of my first Rubbernecker Blog hop! I've got three projects to show you today highlighting the beautiful new Fashion Ladies, Florals and Weeds Stamp sets that Dave recently released. See how you can win one of these complete sets at the end of my post!

First I made a magnetic bookmark using Florals #496-01 The sentiment is from an older set called Word Set #4 under KK Originals.

I used ink daubers to color the flowers so it was easy to use different colors on the stamp
I cut small strips of adhesive magnet tape and attached it on the inside ends.
And here's the bookmark in use - slipped over a page to hold my place! (I usually slip it over the side of the page to mark the exact line I stopped reading at but for this pic I placed it over the top so the word was oriented correctly!)

For my second project - I used seven of the weed stamps to make a set of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" note cards that I put inside this clear acetate box.

I simply drew a border around the card with a fine point Micron 01 black pen and then stamped a different weed with black ink on each card. I tied a black silk ribbon around the box and attached a Spellbinders scalloped tag stamped with a sentiment from an older set Floral Silhouette Set #467. "Friendship is the only flower that blossoms in all seasons."

Don't these make a great set of note cards?!?!

And my third project is two cards using the Fashion Ladies stamps
This is Katherine #494-14
and this is Daphne #494-03
They are both colored with Copics and the flowers are Floral Creations 3 Spellbinders.
