The Rubber Cafe'- New Release Blog Hop - Final Day!

Welcome to The Rubber Cafe new release blog hop!  Today is the last day so get hopping!

This time our new releases are featuring stamps designed for us by Jamie Doughtery, and can be found here!



Let's get started. Here's my project for the day:  Using the Don't be Wishy Washi set, I created a Christmas tree- by stamping directly on my patterned Christmas paper, by Authentic.  This is their Festive Collection and I just love it!  For my sentiment I used the one from the Ornamental Holiday set.
To top my tree, I used the 'Love' phrase, from the Remember the Moments set,
I positioned the stamp just below a circle of flowers - just so it could be my Tree topper!


A paper doily and Baker's Twine in Red, help to finish it up!



To stamp and create my tree, I laid each of the 'Washi' tape designs just as I wanted them to appear on my card directly to my clear block.  I than inked each layer with the color of my choice.  Fnally I stamped it on the area of my printed paper I wanted - I trimmed the RH side edge so I could have a balanced look to my tree.  It wasn't perfectly graduating in size, so I did this and trimmed the RH side which was a great look for my card!


Heres' one more look at my finished card!
