The Rubber Cafe Blog Has Been Hi Jacked!

Ok fellow stampers, this is Candy Rosenberg and I have officially hijacked this blog!

Don't tell Melissa! Luckily I live just far enough away that she will not be able to catch me by the time she sees this in the morning...so ssshhh!!

Recently I was asked to design a "Steampunk" themed set of stamps for the benefit of Charity Wings, a non profit organization that supports crafter's and artists like you! I could not have been more thrilled to be a part of this!

So without any further ado...let's reveal this baby! But wait, I have to share these great projects that Melissa made using both stamp sets...I already have dibs on the beautiful shadowbox so don't even try to bribe her, it wont work! And for those that know me, know my love of mannequins and dress forms, so she was brave enough to jump in with both feet and alter a mannequin.

I told Miss Melissa that she may be all princess and bling on the outside but she has a vintage heart! What do you think of what Melissa has done? Check it out below, these beautiful projects were made by Melissa Forsyth:

DRUM ROLL PLEASE.....................And here she!
And remember these sets are ready to purchase in the store...so help support Charity Wings and get your set today!

Are you wondering what "Steampunk" is? I am asked this alot. So let me explain. If you were standing in the Victorian era and looking to the future, this is what your future would have looked like; industrial steam machines, mad scientists, hot air balloons, gears, corsets (more on that one another day) and more.

So in designing this set, Melissa owner of The Rubber Cafe and I talked about adding a little vintage flair . I could not resist jumping in with this beautiful set of vintage items in the second set:
