Rubberband Blooms


STVTC7 FCCC blooms

It’s time for another installment of the talented & sweet Gina K’s StampTV video techniques!  This time, she is using the rubberband technique and although I didn’t clarify what she meant – I remembered using wrapping rubberbands around the rubber brayer and swiping it on cardstock like 6 years ago when I heard of the technique and I probably have not used it since then!  HA---it was fun, though.  I used Cool Caribbean & Chocolate Chip cardstock.  The blooms, flower centers and brown cord are in the StampTV kit.  I made polka dots with an eraser.  Try out the technique & upload your creation in order to get in the drawing for a free stamp set valued at $24.95 or less!  If you use Gina K stamps, your name goes in twice!

I took my inspiration from the oh-so-adorable-and-looking-like-a-pretty-girl toddler Courtney for my card!  She was helping mommy with the dishes the other day when Libby posted a sneak peek of what was to come – she was amused by my comment that Courtney was wearing an apron!  I love this shirt, and would really love to have one but would not want to show my chunky  arms so I think I’ll pass on the quest to find one. 

Hope you have an awesome day!!
