Good Sunday Afternoon! It’s a little snowy here today, not much just a few flurries, but still a perfect morning to stamp. I read the paper this morning, first time in a long time, checked the ads and decided where I NEED to go this week. Then I checked out the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast. Much to my joy it is Mary Jo Albright. I was lucky enough to meet her at CHA and couldn’t wait to play along today.


However, before I show you my card I have an announcement.

Rubbernecker Stamp Company
needs your help.
The 2008 Show Schedule has begun and we are looking for product demonstrators. We need two demonstrators for shows in the following cities:


Allentown, PA on April 12-13
Minneapolis, MN on May 17-18
Syracuse, NY on May 24-25
St. Louis, MO on June 7-8
Hartford, CT on July 12-13


It’s really simple, if Jeanne and I can do it, so can you! All you will be doing is demonstrating products during the show. It’s tons of fun and goes very quickly.


If you are interested, please leave a comment or send me an email and either Dave or I will respond with all the important deets (i.e., compensation)!


Now for today’s card. I chose this card of Mary Jo’s to case, oink oink. I loved the layout, which I used, but changed up the images and colors.




The image was stamped three times. Once in VersaMark on light blue paper and the other two times in Adirondack Pitch Black on white. The images stamped on white were colored with Copic Markers. I misted the image on the blue paper with Broken China-Pearl Shimmer Mist and used Ranger Glossy Accents to highlight all the bubbles. I then cut one full image out of the white paper and glued it over the top of the image on the blue paper. To add more interest to the image, I then cut out only the fish from the third I stamped and raised it with mounting tape on top of the fish. The circles were cut using my new Spellbinders Nestabilities and the photo corners were made with a punch. I sponged Broken China Distress Ink on a Grunge Board Heart, and to highlight the swirl pattern of the Grunge, I lighted tapped it with my Dusty Concord pad. I then misted the heart with the same Shimmer Mist I used on the background panel for the image. The edges of the Memory Box background paper and the purple cardstock were sponged with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

Hey ya’ll! Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far. I’m getting caught up on some laundry, still moving some odds and ends down to the new rubber room and getting some stamping in too!


I took the dogs to the groomer yesterday for a mini groom. Of course, it’s one of those things – you take them at 8:30 in the morning and they call when they are done. It could be a few hours or all day, depending on how busy the groomer is. Sydney always comes home pouting and snubs me the rest of the day. I’ve never figured out if she is embarrassed for the lack of hair in her eyes or mad at me for leaving her. Well, I think I figured it out last night! She avoided me all day yesterday. She wouldn’t go outside, wouldn’t play – nothing. I go to get in bed last night AND right in the middle of my bed are THREE wet circles! Of course, she didn’t want to go outside. She was MAD at me and decided to go in my bed. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper having to strip the bed at midnight! Can I prove it was Sydney and not Ellie – NOPE! I can only go on Syd’s behavior yesterday. Sydney has been much for loving today too – hmmmmmmmm. Mallory I hope you are splitting a gut on this one!


Anyhoo, after getting the laundry started this morning, I checked out the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast. I check it every Saturday morning, but am not often inspired to stamp. Today I was! I loved the neutral look of the room that is the inspiration piece and immediately thought of the way my mother decorates. So I went with neutrals and more of a tone on tone.




The flair from the Tim Holtz Anthology Set was stamped twice, once in Sandal and then in Latte on vanilla cardstock. I wanted a double-stamped look without stamping off. The sentiment is stamped in the darker Latte. The edges of the vanilla cardstock were sponged with Lake Mist using an oblong sponge dauber. The sentiment panel was mounted on a layer of sand cardstock, and then raised on a layer of kraft cardstock. The entire panel is then raised on the card with mounting tape. I had a small flair Grunge Board, and using a dauber sponged on Sandal and then swiped the Latte across the top to highlight the raised areas of the Grunge.
