Cowboy Up with 2 Cute Rubber Stamps!

Hey y'all! I know it has been awhile since I last posted. What can I say, life has been crazy! I know you can definitely understand that! And while I am a few days posting this week, I wanted to go ahead and get my 2 Cute Rubber Stamps DT card for all of you to see! This week I played with the adorable Cowboy Kid digi stamp from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps - check him out HERE. Isn't he cute! While I decided to use him to adorn a cute little BBQ invite, wouldn't he be great for some baby or birthday cards, or even some cute little scrapbook LO's of your cute kiddo playing cowboy?!

First, I printed the digi stamp on some Heavenly White Premium Ultrasmooth Cardstock by The Paper Temptress. I totally have to brag about this paper! Foremost, it is the absolute best paper I have ever used to color on...EVER! It is so smooth and rich and blends soooo well. You must try it out! Patricia has a fabulous website and even has a sample request form so you can try out her fabulous product for yourself. Please, run, don't walk, over to The Paper Temptress right now check it out for yourself! You won't be disappointed! I used my Prisma pencils to color the Cowboy Kid dig, and added some line detail with a black Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pen. I love these pens...they are fabulous for little details - especially the black! The patterned paper is by Sulyn Industries & is some I have had for a long glad I am finally using it! The blue check is Creative Memories & the red is some scrap from my stash. I used my Cricut & the Beyond Birthdays cart for the sentiment & tied on some $ Tree twine to finish it off. I also used a star punch & the ink for distressing is coffee by Stamp Craft.

There is some great inspiration for this stamp and many others over at the 2 Cute Rubber Stamp DT site so make sure to check it out! The girls are fabulously talented! And as always, 2 Cute Stamps come 3 ways: digi (which I love!), cling cushion, & wood mounted! Hop on over and check out the store HERE! Happy Craftin'!

Summer Fun with Happy Crabby & 2 Cute Rubber Stamps!

Hey y'all! Long time no see! LOL! Sorry I haven't been around much the past week or so; we've had a lot of stuff going on. Let's see, I lost my job of five years, our fur baby has cancer, our cousin is visiting us from out of state for a few weeks, and I just got rid of a wicked eye infection. Ya know, it is kinda hard to scrap without two good eyes! LOL!! But seriously, thanks for your patience and if you want to send a prayer my family's way, we would certainly appreciate it! Anyway, let's get on to the good stuff!

This is probably my very fav stamp from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps! Happy Crabby is so darn cute and he just screams summer to me! I have many more plans for him this summer besides the card I already featured (and will be published next month!!) and this cutie pie altered notebook! So, I had this notebook from Dollar Tree I had picked up awhile back and decide to convert it into something cute to hold some summer memories! Perfect for catching the day to day stuff and the big happenings...especially when it comes to remembering the details for scrapbooking later on!

I started by grabbing some black spray paint from Ace Hardware (this stuff is fantastic!) and coating the front & back cover of my notebook, as well as the binding. I colored my Happy Crabby 2 Cute Rubber Stamp using my Prisma pencils & a couple Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pens. The patterned paper is by Creative Memories & Basic Grey, and the cardstock is by The Paper Temptress (absolutely fabulous paper! love it!) & Creative Memories. The ribbon is by SU, the adhesive badge is AC, and the sentiments are stamps from Target's $1 bin! I used Staz On ink for stamping & Stamp Craft ink for distressing. The red & blue ribbons are from my stash, as are the little yellow dew drops!

I hope you like my little card and I hope you take the time to hop on over to the 2 Cute Rubber Stamps Design Team site! The DT is super talented and there are so many cute projects to give you some great inspiration! Don't forget to check out the 2 Cute Rubber Stamps store too so you can grab your own Happy Crabby! Happy Craftin'!
