Workshop Project #2: Rub Ons

I absolutely love rub ons! This month SU has them on SALE! So, to boost sales at my upcoming workshop I am featuring a project using rub ons for the sentiment. I am using the level three hostess set for this project, so I am limited as to the number of like sentiments available. My solution? Three different versions of the same card! By using the double sided DSP I have tripled my options and made a card that can be changed to whatever the stamper desires.

Here are my choices: (I have left off the sentiments as to not waste the precious rub ons! Just imagine Chocolate Chip sentiments on the bottom DSP)

Option 1:

Option 2:

Option 3:

This project was so easy! I literally used the same supplies for each card! I think it is really cool how you can flip the DSP for either Snowflakes or Stripes. And the stamp set included in the Level 3 pack has 4 different images which gives you more options! I could have also stuck with just one ink color, making it even more cost effective. I am really excited about this project!

There are only 13 days left for the Stampin' Up rub on sale! Don't miss out!

Welcome Home Hero!

I have booked my first SU workshop since moving! I am very excited and honored to have this opportunity! My hostess has requested a "welcome home" card for her hubby. While no stranger to homecoming, I found myself stuck for an idea. I began browsing Splitcoast stampers and found these inspirations:

I really liked the star window on Laura's card. I wanted to add some hearts for emotional appeal. My creation:

I know this soldier will have a great homecoming!

C is for Camden

Morning Everyone! Today is my birthday!!! It is looking to be a great day--although maybe a little rainy! So in celebration of "gift-giving" days I am posting a gift I have made for a friend's son for Christmas. This little boy's room is decorated in classic Mickey and I hope this will coordinate well! Any comments/critiques would be appreciated!
