It's All About Rubbernecker Today!

What a fun time Anne and I had at the Rubbernecker Booth at the Creative Keepsakes Convention in Manchester, NH this weekend.

We spent about 8 hours both Friday and Saturday stamping demos for the scrappers and stampers that stopped by the booth.

In honor of the event I have two cards - both using Rubbernecker stamps - that I made for some challenges over on Split Coast this weekend.

I made this first card for the Featured Stamper Challenge. 
I chose to CASE Linda's Gratitude card as I had a similar silhouette rose stamp. I inked the rose and leaves with red and green markers - huffed on it to moisten it and stamped it on the card stock.

My silhouette rose stamp was bigger than Linda's so I cut it with a circle Nestability instead of using a rectangle shape so that the pretty patterned paper showed a little more. I changed the design a bit - tying wrinkled seam tape across the middle and stamping my sentiment in a punched circle.

My second card was made for two SCS challenges -  Queen For the Day and the Inspiration Challenge.
I was inspired by this Birthday Blessings card by Queen Holly (Toy) I used different images - making mine a new baby card but I used her great design.

And for the Inspiration challenge - I was inspired by this whimsey animals baby rug.

I stamped the animals on dotted patterned paper, cut them out and layered them over more dotted paper! I embossed the back panel with a Wicker Weave embossing folder after I had adhered the patterned paper strips so they got embossed as well. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the patterned paper.

Here are pics of Anne and I working the RN booth.  Anne was demoing the Beach Kittie Kit and I was demoing the baskets, pots and sentiment Garden sets.

We had such a fun time - but our backs, legs and feet were killing us after standing pretty much the whole time for two days!   The things we do for the joy of stamping!
