Don’t forget that the Treasure Hunt runs from 4:00 a.m. PST until 9:00 p.m PST (7:00 a.m. EST – 12:00 a.m. EST). If you are new to the Treasure Hunt, you can find the first clue and all the details for playing along on the Rubbernecker Home Page. For a chance to win a $10 Rubbernecker Gift Certificate you will definitely want to visit Candy’s Blog – Candy’ Land, and Shelly’s Blog – Stamp with Shelly.

I have a little sneak peek for you today. It’s a new line of stamps designed by one of our very own Rubbernecker Design Team members. Am I gonna tell you who – NOPE! You have to wait just a bit longer, but needless to say I’m very excited over these images. If you were at the Minneapolis Show this past weekend, these images were actually in the Rubbernecker booth as a pre-release. Shame on you if you saw them and weren’t one of the first to snatch them up! I bet you might be regretting that about now!

Floral Silhouette

The stamp was colored with markers, misted with water and then stamped onto white cardstock. The script background was inked with Vintage Photo, stamped off once, and then stamped over the flower image. The edges of the image were then sponged with Antique Linen and then distressed. The same sponging and distressing were done with the background panel. Because this image is so versatile and can be used for so many different occasions, I didn’t add a sentiment. That can always be added to the inside at a later date.

I apologize to those of you who like the photos of the product used, I’m running just a tad behind right now, and just didn’t have the opportunity to get all the product together. I do, however, hope you enjoy the sneak peek – there are more to come.



Happy Tuesday! So it’s May, the 20th of May! That means that it’s time for another Dirty Girl Challenge. I have to say, that I am so enjoying these monthly challenges between the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen Current and Alumni. For starters, it keeps us challenged, thus being creative, but it also brings us all together. Not only is that fabulous for us, but you also get to see some creative stamping by a very talented group of women. (I’m still asking myself why I’m in this group, but hey let’s enjoy the ride.)

This month’s challenge focus is on owls (or any other flighted fowl), to use texture, and no rhinestones, crystals, dew drops, or other blingy embellishments. To see all the challenge cards, you can search on Keyword DCWH508 in the Splitcoaststampers Gallery, or simply click here.

Now I’m just a little upset with myself on the image of this card, only because I got a little carried away with the airbrush and no matter what I did, I couldn’t correct it. I suppose I could have trashed it and started over, but that really was too simple.


The image was colored with Copic Markers and then cut out and embossed using rectangle Nestabilities. I left the die cut in the rectangle, using it as a mask for the edges, and then masked the owl itself. I then airbrushed the background leaving a white band around the image. I then cut and embossed two more layers each larger than the other for the background of the image. The sentiment was stamped in black ink, and then punched out using the SU Large Oval Punch and adhered to the back of the Hodgepodge Hardware with Ranger Matte Accents. The background paper, BasicGrey Periphery was sewn to a panel of Prism Birchtone Medium which was then layered on the card.

My texture for the card would be the stitching, the Prism paper which has a rough texture on one side, the embossing the Spellbinders Nestabilities, the airbrush (which gives the paper a different feel), and the weave of the taffeta ribbon.
