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!

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!

World Card-Making Day – Gently Falling Oak Leaf Card

Today is World Card-Making Day!   What cards do you need to make?  I can always use “Thinking of You” cards – they serve so many purposes!

Love this color combination for fall – Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, and Brushed Gold.  So very elegant.  The leaf was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

Sending cards with lots of embellishments can be tricky with the postal service.  So here’s a quick tip – use cardstock circles instead of brads.  They add interest, layers, but not a lot of bulk.  This way the card can be easily mailed.

Zoo Babies Hello Alligator Card

See ya later, alligator?  Not today – we’re saying “hello” instead!  This is a swap card I made over the summer with one of my favorite returning colors, Pear Pizzazz.  I do love to combine Pear Pizzazz with Early Espresso and Very Vanilla…yum, sounds like dessert!

Ok, now you can say it – see you later, alligator!
