Hello friends! Today is the last day to get 25% OFF on almost all rubber stamps from Purple Onion Designs!
My card today features some adorable images from the new “A Special Day” Collection illustrated by Stacey Yacula.
If you’ve never used rubber stamps, they’re actually pretty easy to use. I use mine with my MISTI which makes things even easier. Most of these stamps are sold unmounted, so you will need a clear mounting stamp (if you already don’t have one, 2 options can be found HERE) in order to easily stamp the rubber stamp onto your card stock. I like to stamp my images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I find that this combo works amazingly well when coloring with alcohol markers (I use Copic).
Once my images were stamped onto my paper, I colored them with Copic Markers. If you don’t have a type of scan and cut machine (I use an older model of the Brother Scan n Cut) you can fussy cut your images with a pair of sharp scissors or just stamp them onto your card stock and color them as a single-layer card. The quality of these rubber stamps is extremely crisp and clear and I find that I usually don’t have to re-stamp them as I sometimes do with clear stamp sets.
I created my box card from scratch and simply used one 8.5″ x 11″ piece of pink card stock, a paper trimmer, scissors, glue, and a scoring board to put it all together. When upright, my card measures at 4.75″ across, 4.75″ tall, and 2″ wide. When folded flat, my card measures at 6.75″ (l) x 4.75″ (h) and fits perfectly into a standard 5×7 envelope.

- Sunny Studio Stamps – Slimline Nature Border Die Set (grass)
For my grass, I die cut it using the Sunny Studio Stamps Slimline Nature Border Die Set from some smooth white card stock and blended each piece with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink. For my background sky, I used Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink.
