The Rubber Cafe









Hello and happy thursday! I am back today to share two cards both using one stamp..but in two diffrent ways. It is the ohhhhh so vintagey Be Stylish. Ok I know I said that the mini jar set was my fave...but I think this is my new fave. Soo fun and dare I say flirty! Each card started with good ole cardstock that I adhered my fun papers too using some One and ONly tape ....the first is done in a nuetral creamy pallette..I adhered a paper diecut frame with my Scrap Happy glue . I stamped the corsette onto plain rustic cream cardstock and fussy cut it out...than inked the edges. I used foam adhesive to give it some depth from behind and than adhered it overlapping the frame a bit. I added some fun crochet lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon to the bottom portion of the corset. I also added a bit of charm using the jellie dots in the pearl finish. Other than that a few old buttons and some satin ribbon with a sweet homemade posy nestled in the middle. Now the inside is where I put the fun sentiment...it is fun to add a bit of a surprise to the inside. I added a heart and a mini tea stained posy that matches the one on the front.
The second card I stamped the corset onto pattern paper and again cut it out and inked it. I added more gorgeous jellie dots in cotton candy..they are a natural for an image like this. This time I wanted a skirt and added some fun chiffon trim to the bottom portion. Other than that....some ribbons and a little rose and I was done! I love how they both turned out...both with their own personalities. Hope you enjoy and thanks
