Now for something a little different....

Hi everyone , Sabrina MacD here and this is my very first post on The Rubber Cafe Blog
and to say I'm excited would be an understatement!!!!
Ok so lets just jump in shall we. I thought I'd mix it up this weekend by showing you a bookmark and two gift card ard holders I made.
I stamped the Images from the Bon Appetite set and the sentiment Just Because for the gift card holders and the Extra Large Daisy on the bookmark.
I'm all about re-purposing items from everyday life such as making mini albums from coffee cup sleeves or disposable coasters etc etc ....well with that train of thought I came up with the idea of the gift card holder. After a recent hotel stay, they had room key holders so I kept mine took it home, ripped it apart and well as you can see I made these.

The bookmark was created because.... well I just needed one :)


I colored all the images with copics and pencil crayons and I used glossy accents to give them all dimension and shine. On the wine bottles and glasses it gives it a "glassy" look which I'm pleased about.
On the bookmark I did a faux stitch with white ink to match the ribbon.
Hope you enjoyed the projects I had to offer and if anyone wants measurements on the gift card holder I'd more than happy to work on a sketch and email it to you.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Ya it's great. I actually bought it a couple of years ago and my inlaws are wine makers so they loved the cards i made for them with it.
