My blog post yesterday was a review of this product from Stampin' Up!. It is called Rub-Ons, Dots & Designs, item #115728 and is on Pg 176 of the catalog. Comes with 2 identical Rub-Ons sheets.
Today I decided to challenge myself and see just how many cards I could come up with using just 1 of the 2 sheets in the kit. I was shocked when I made 8 and know that I could of made more if I had changed lay-outs just a bit. It was so much fun, and of course, I just had to share with all of you.
I used Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Ruby Red, and Very Vanilla as the solid papers. I also used Classic Inks: Chocolate Chip & Ruby Red.
Card #1: All decorations were done with the Rub-Ons except for the greeting which is a rubber stamp image.
Card #2: All designs are from the kit and I stamped the greeting. It was fun to layer the colors and see what combinations I could come up with. I also used the Tag die from the Big Shot, then added in a Jumbo Brad..
Card #3: The tiny multi-color dots are from a package of Designer Series Paper called Cottage Wall. The larger 2 circles (in the corners) are stamped images. The tiny dots and the flower are rub-ons.
Card #4: The red border is from the Rub-Ons set. I stamped the flowers and the greeting using Ruby Red.
The border was a perfect 5 1/2" wide so no trimming needed to put on my card base.
Card #5: Did you notice the tiny white border at the bottom? It is in the kit too. The white dots are part of a border from the kit and once I put it on the cardstock, I then used a paper punch to make tiny square and shadowed the square with Chocolate Chip. The greeting is a stamped image.
Card #6: The brown border at the bottom is from the Rub-Ons kit as is the floral design in the scallop circle. I did stamp the image.
Card #7: When you have a brand new roll of ribbon, don't you want to use it right away at least on one project!! This is the sleigh bells ribbon in the Holiday Mini Catalog on Pg 17, but I really think it could be used year round. I placed the white rub-ons in the center of the card stock, then added in the ribbons, and adhered to the card. Greeting was stamped.
Card #8: I think this is one of my favorits. It just looks so elegant and I think the Ronald McDonald House Charities Stamp set was a perfect choice which added in the bird and the Thank You. The white design brown border and the multi-color floral images are part of the Rub-Ons kit. The peacock, swirls, and Thank You are a stamped image.
Remember this was from just 1 sheet of the Rub-Ons kit. This kit would easily make 16 to 20 cards depending on the layout designs you choose to use. Hope you will try it.
