Rubbernecker New Release Day Blog Hop - Best Wishes

Today is RUBBERNECKER STAMPS release day!! We are SO excited to share our NEW release with you that, we are celebrating with a BLOG HOP!! Speaking of celebrating, we are also giving away a PRIZE!!! If you HOP along with us today and leave some LOVE at EVERY stop along the way?? You will be entered for your chance to win…….


A $50 GIFT CERTIFICATE for Rubbernecker Stamps!!

How is that for a PRIZE?!! We will announce the winner THURSDAY on the Rubbernecker Blog! So, you have until then to HOP! The official BLOG HOP ROUTE is listed below, in case you should get lost!! Thanks for joining in our excitement and BEST OF LUCK!! Winners from the preview days are posted on the blog today so be sure to check it out!

On this card I used two new sets - Bud Trees and Butterflies are Free. I only inked a piece of the sentiment here (Best Wishes) - the full sentiment is "Fluttering by with my Best Wishes". I stamped the bud trees on kraft, then sponged the edges with Ranger Tea Dye Ink. I stamped the butterfly on white, cut it out and then sponged it with the same ink. I layered it onto the card with a glue dot. I added a little Stickles to the center for a little shimmer!

My sketch is from Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge . I'm also entering this in Delightful Sketches Challenge - to use Butterflies.

For my second card today I used a new flourish stamp (#530-14) and a sentiment from Butterflies are Free (#538). The colors are from today's Split Coast Color Challenge - Soft Suede, Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake. I will use this card as an Anniversary Card.

You are now free to take your shopping list over to Rubbernecker and order up some Rubbah!!
