A Biker, a Dog and a Skateboarder!

I've got three cards to share today -  all using Rubbernecker Stamps and all from challenges over at Split Coast.

This first card was made for this weeks Featured Stamper challenge. We got to check out Tami Mayberry's lovely gallery and pick one to CASE.

I chose her Enjoy the Ride card as it reminded me of this dapper on a bike stamp I recently got from Rubbernecker. 

When you CASE a card you have to change some things -  so I changed the image, the colors and stamped an argyle background instead of scoring lines but kept her theme and basic sketch. The image and sentiment are stamped directly on the patterned paper.

My next two cards were made for the Featured Stamper challenge of a week ago -  Stamper Camper (Mary) had so many fun cards in her gallery - I CASED two of them!

I loved the design of her  fun Happy Bird-Day card

I used a cute little doggie and dog sentiment from Rubbernecker instead of a bird and I used a brick wall embossing folder instead of swiss dots.

For my last card -  I CASED Mary's  On the Grow card.

I used a little skateboarder named Billy and sentiment from Rubbernecker instead of the motorbike, different colors and a star instead of a bow!

 It's always good to have some kids cards handy in my stash!  I didn't have too many kids stamps but with these fun new Rubbernecker kids stamps my supply has grown!

Before I go -   I'm so excited and happy to announce that we have added 5 wonderful card stamping artists to the Rubbernecker Design team:  Holly McMillen, Jen Cuthbertson, Judy Rozema , Charlene Driggs and Kecia Waters.   You're probably very familiar with several of them already!  You can see the whole Rubbernecker Design Team listed on my side bar along with links to their blogs.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
