No Stamp Card

Hey everyone! Hope all is well with you! Today is a quick post. This was my first adventure with rub-ons! I saw this set at Michael's for $0.99 and thought "What the heck? Can't go wrong with $0.99, right?" So, here is what I came up with:




The rub-ons already had the glitter on them, so truly all I had to do for this card was pick the colors, do the matting and the rubbing, the bling and the bow, and there ya have it! The "thank you" was printed off using my printer and a font that I really like. I use my printer when I don't have the sentiment I want in a rubber stamp, or I need it smaller than I have it in a rubber stamp. I kind of like how this card turned out! Below is a close up of the detail on the rub on:



If you click on the picture you can get a better detail of how they sparkle. I bought another set that has butterflies that are sparkly too, and I'm anxious to see what I can make with those. So, there you have it, a "no stamp" card. I will say it took me just as long to put this together as any of my other cards do, however no cleaning stamps, no coloring, just rubbing. I still like using my stamps better, but I still like this card a lot!

Again, as always, thanks very much for stopping by and telling me what you think of my stuff. Some of my near future posts are going to be a little different. I hope you come back to see what I'm talking about. Hopefully I'll have it up in the next couple of days!

Don't forget the "Picture of the Week" below!

Best,

Curt O'Brien
