Zoo Babies – Rubber Band Alligator Card

I recently participated in a technique swap with one of my online stamping groups.  I created this fun birthday card using the rubber band brayer technique.  It is such a fun and easy way to make a background!

Zoo Babies-Rubber Band

Here’s how you do it:

  • Find several rubber bands – better results with a variety of widths
  • Wrap the bands around a rubber brayer
  • Ink up the bands over an inkpad  and roll on a piece of card stock
  • Reapply ink and go over it in another direction

I used a neutral (Very Vanilla) card stock, but you can use colored card stock too for a tone-on-tone look.

I colored the gems using Blendabilities markers.

The arrow is from the new What’s Up! punch!

Blended Bloom – Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Card

At my Try the New Tools Night a few weeks ago, my stampers couldn’t wait to use the new Blendabilities markers.  This stamp set makes it so very easy to look like an artist!  I had several sets out so my stampers could take their time with their creations.

Did you know you can use the Blendabilities markers to color in pearls and gems?  LOVE THAT!

This is a perfect summer birthday card!
