Love the look of stamped images...but hate the mess!?!!? LOL


I, myself, LOVE the look of stamped images... I love stamps themselves...I just don't like having to pull out the stamps and stamp pads or paints...and I definitely don't like having to clean up when I'm done! HA HA!

I know... I'll admit I'm a bit lazy when it comes to my papercrafting... I like to keep things somewhat simple...easy...and quick. :)

That's why I LOVE some of the wonderful rub-on images that are available out there these days. They look just like stamped images!

I created this birthday card using new BoBunny papers and rub-ons!

I simply transferred the rub-on flower image and the sentiment to white cardstock.

Then, just as if it were a stamped image, I "dressed it up" a bit by adding some jewels and some ribbon.

QUICK....EASY... AND NO MESS!

CHALLENGE!!! Post here and share a link to a project YOU create using Rub-ons in the place of a stamped image! I'll randomly pick one name and post the name here on January 4th. Check back to see if you won and I'll send you a couple sheets of BoBunny rub-ons for your very own!

This sounds like a fun challenge. I am sure I have everything I need. I can say the other night I used a huge rub-on for part of my title and then stamped the rest of the title with little letters, I like the look.

Happy Scrappin'

Loved this challenge, Dee. Instead of jazzing up my rubon from above I layered papers and inks underneath.

Heres a card I made... http://www.creativexpress.com/community/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=29069&cat=500&ppuser=4413
