Introducing a New Release from The Rubber Cafe'

Hey it's the weekend and I'm here to share a new little 'Bundle' over here at The Rubber Cafe'. It's the new release "On the Fence" which you can buy separately or all bundled together.

In my card I've managed to work in a little bit from all of this fun set. I used the "On the Fence Die" and the background "Wood Grain" stamp on the front, and on the inside I've combined a phrase from the "Friends" phrase set, and the hanging basket from the "Window Garden" set.

Spellbinder Nestabilties set Label number 21 cut the shape of my card. By folding my 90 lb wt Water color paper, in towards the center, leaving folds on each side, I measured so the largest die would just sit inside the fold thus keeping the dies from cutting and giving you a gateway folded card with some shape. I layered more paper using the Spellbinder Nestabilities Label 10. Add in some bling, ribbon with a bit of Walnut Stain distress ink and some glue, and my card os complete!

Here's a better view of that fun Fence die! The paper was stamped with the Wood Grain background stamp in Memento Close to Cocoa.

In addition I had so much fun rolling my little roses from Spellbinders' Bitty Blossom set. For this card I just used the smaller 2 dies and really pleased with how these turned out! I've been hand cutting and rolling my own roses for awhile now, so I can't tell you how fun and easy it is to make flowers with these dies! Here's a handful together... as well as the ones I used in my card.

Well that's it, I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, and if you're like me have an extra day off on this Memorial Day weekend! I for one am hoping to get some more stamping time in! This new bundle has opened some creative flood gates that won't be denied!

Bye for now!

Oh my Karen, I love this card. From the gate fold and all the wonderful dies. This is really stunning. But, I think my favorite is the fence...the wood grain on that turquoise is a great color combo!
