Fun Find

 We were at the dollar store a few weeks ago and I was looking for some Autumn stickers, I had seen on line some people talking about some cute stickers they had so I went to look to see if I could find something that would work on some Autumn cards.  Well I did not find that but I did find a sheet of Rub ons that were very pretty and this is a piece I cut from the sheet, everything was so close together so it was very hard to cut out just the flower but I just thought this was beautiful.

All I did was add it to some patterned paper and added a strip at the bottom and a little butterfly that I could pop up, so simple but I just loved it and the quality of the rub on was very good.

  • Crafters Square - Rub on Transfer ($store)
  • Basic Grey - Periphery paper
  • Tim Holtz - Botanical Layers (Butterfly) #TH93554
  • Honbay Sentiment stamp

Since that card went so quickly I made another card using a stamp that Beth gave me. It is a layered stamp and it went together quickly also!

I made a mini slim line card for this one.  

After stamping I did a little splattering, roughed up the edges and pierced the corners to give them a little extra something and mounted it on some pattern paper.

  • Stampin up - Lotus Blossom stamp
  • Watercolor splatters
  • Distressed edges
  • Pierced corners
Thanks so much for stopping by,

Both cards are beautiful! I like the piercing on the second card. A good idea to remember.

I love the "roughing up the edges a bit" of the second card, Connie. Both cards are gorgeous. I particularly love the ethereal beauty of the first card. Love that beautiful white rose.

These are both so pretty! I'm going to have to go see what my $ store has. I love the first card with the postal background.

Wow, that is really an amazing rub on and your paper background and butterfly are the perfect companions. A gorgeous card! Your little slimline with the pretty stamp is a bonus today! The simplicity, the colors with the paper, the distressed edges... all gorgeous!

Hi Connie! Hope your weekend is going well.

Your card is so elegant. When I read that you used a rub on I was surprised. Rubinstein have come a long way. I always mess up rumors. You did a magnificent job.
