The Rubber Cafe` New Release Blog Hop - Day 3

Welcome to The Rubber Cafe new release blog hop! We'll be kicking this all off on Monday December 10th and ending on Wednesday December 12th. Today you'll be hopping with Jen, Karen and myself. 

If you just happened to visit my blog today and would like to start this BLOG HOP from the beginning, simply follow THIS LINK to be taken to The Rubber Cafe blog to begin the celebration.  There will be a Grand Prize for one lucky winner so be sure to stop at each blog and leave a comment to be registered. Don't forget to also leave a comment on each main blog post at The Rubber Cafe too.  This time our new releases are featuring stamps designed for us by Jamie Doughtery, and can be found here!

Here is the project that I designed to share with you today.

I used  L-1227 Don't Be Wishy Washi and S-125 Pictures Framed to create the background for my card.  For the music notes I used Rich Cocoa ink and for the polk-a-dots I used Tuxedo Black ink.  Then I lightly went over the entire card front using Desert Sand ink to give the paper a softer and vintage look.  

I stamped two of the word blocks from S-125 Pictures Framed, fussy cut them and used 3D Foam Squares to pop up the words and add a little dimension.   

Next I used a Copic marker (R81) to color the polk-a-dots pink.

Then I added some baby pink seam binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon along the side of the card.  I applied Scrap Happy Sheer Glue and You're So Fine Glitter Diamond Clear Cool Highlights to the flowers and added a stick pin.

Using the Stick "EM" Up Tool and Scrap Happy Sheer Glue I added a few Pearl Jellie Dots to finish off the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy the Blog Hop!!
