Stampin' Up! Rub-Ons - Product Review - Mini Tutorial

Stampin' Up! Rub-Ons
Dots & Designs, item #115728 .... price $11.95 ... Pg 176 of the catalog
Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, and Whisper White
Each package contains 2 sheets 5 7/8" x 12" along with a wooden stick to rub the images on card stock, patterned paper, or stamped image.

Personally I like using the bone folder to rub the images on rather than the wooden stick. Both work fine, however the bone folder gives me a larger surface to work with.

I picked this set because of the border pieces in it, and that the designs/colors would work whether for a male or female. The white areas actually have designs on them.

With rub-ons, you can use the full item or cut it to whatever length you would like. Just remember that the backing and the design need to be kept together until ready for use. I keep mine in their original bag and the smaller images I put in a zip-lock bag to keep them together.

It is so quick and easy to make a card, but the cards are beautiful when complete. I made one in just a few minutes and am very pleased with the results.

I used the brown lattice type border. It was a perfect fit for the 5 1/2" side of my card. No trimming needed.

Then I took a piece of ruby red card stock and used a flower rub-on, then punched out with our scallop circle punch. Did similar for the inside but with a scallop square punch that I had (see photo below). Attached both using Dimensionals.

The stamp set I used on this card is called: On Your Birthday, item #111664 and is on Pg 139 of the catalog. I used the Classic Chocolate Chip Stamp Pad with the stamps.

This would be a perfect gift for anyone who loves card making, scrapbooking or crafts. Also a great idea for someone just starting out. There are many more sets of rub-ons in our catalog on pages 176 through pages 177 AND on page 27 of the Holiday Mini Catalog. The ones in the Holiday Mini Catalog are metallic and will add a great accent to a holiday greeting or scrapbook.

Definitely would recommend the Stampin' Up! Rub-Ons. Hope you will try them too.

Mary--I love the card you made with these rub-ons. The rub-ons are quite unique. I also like the idea of using the bone folder instead of the popsicle stick. Now if I could just find my bone folder... Thanks again for the ideas.
