Red Rubber Designs Blog Hop - New Stamp Releases - Scavenger Hunt


It is the first Thursday of a new month and time for new stamp releases at Red Rubber Designs! This month the Design Team will be focusing their attention on scrapbooking.  They will be posting layouts, mini albums, journals, embellishment ideas and more using all of the newly released stamp sets. Today, each member of the Design Team will be presenting a scrapbook layout featuring the June Spotlight Stamp Set "Happily Grateful".


We also have a fun contest for you today - a Scavenger Hunt. Each Design Team blog will have a  question about an item or items in the Red Rubber Designs store. Your assignment is to collect all 7 questions then go to the store and find the answers. (You will find my question at the end of this post.)

Once you find the answers to all 7 questions, email your answers, your name and email address to contest@RedRubberDesigns.com. If you answered correctly, your name will be entered into a drawing for the June Spotlight Stamp Set - "Happily Grateful". One winner will be chosen at random.  Contest ends Sunday, June 10th at Midnight (US-CDT).

********************

Okay, now that the obligatory business is out of the way, I would like to show you my scrapbook layout featuring the stamp set "Happily Grateful".

I border punched two pieces of Stardust cardstock and layered them. I made a mask of the leafy branch and inked over it in several areas of my background. I then stamped the branch several times, cut out, turned some over and inked to get a variation in shading.

The centers of my seamstress tissue paper are the little flowers from the featured stamp set. I finished off the flowers with flat brads and pearls.

The butterfly also from the Happily Grateful stamp set was stamped on vellum, glittered, and cut out with those super sharp 4" Kai scissors available in the RRD store.  Little pearls form the body of the butterfly.

********************

There are 9 new stamp releases this month
 and I present to you the
 Reinforcers.
Wouldn't these look great embossed?

 T2313 Reinforcers

I know this has been a long post. Thank you for making it this far.
Here is your Scavenger Hunt Question:
There are 35 Palette reinkers.  How many share part of their name with a flower?
