Red Rubber Designs First Thursday and Blog Hop


It is time for another round of new releases of some fabulous stamps sets from Red Rubber Designs.  In addition to new stamps, we have a blog hop and a contest for you.  Each Design Team member is using the same stamp set so you will get lots of ideas on how to use it. 

The Spotlight Stamp

Every Leaf



The Contest
Each blog on the hop (except the Red Rubber Designs Blog) has one word that will complete a phrase somewhere in their blog hop post. Once you find all six words (that's a hint!) put them together to form a phrase. You may have to rearrange them a little bit!

Note: The word you need from each blog will be obvious if you read carefully.... it looks just a little different from the rest of the letters!

Once you figure it out, email the phrase to contest@RedRubberDesigns.com and be sure to put your name and email address in the email with the phrase. Every correct answer will be entered into a drawing for the featured stamp set - "Every Leaf" - and one winner will be chosen at random. Good luck!

Contest ends Sunday, July 8th at Midnight (US-CDT).



When looking for a substrate for my project this month, I wanted a book with a sturdy cover, pretty end papers and something cheap because I just wanted to experiment and not ruin a costly book.  Reader's Digest to the rescue. This one 25 cent book met all of my needs.


I stamped the leaves on Kraft cardstock with Palette inks - Raw Sienna, Orangerie and Cognac - then heat embossed them with clear ep and trimmed.



I also made a gift box by randomly stamping the images on Kraft Cardstock.  The leaf embellishment was stamped with Palette Ink - Moulin Rouge then embossed with clear ep and cut out.

You can find all of the other new releases here.

Thanks for visiting today!  As you continue on the blog hop don't forget to collect a word at each stop for your chance to win the Spotlight Stamp of the Month.
