Do You Ever Sit And Dream?

Good morning to everyone! 

I have a layout that I did using lots of stamping, some of the wonderful Rubber Cafe products, and some Spellbinder's Die Cuts to share with you today. It features a lovely Vintage image that I purchased from an online company with copy write permission from Georgia House Publishing LLC:

 I layered in lots of the new Bo Bunny Country Garden Papers, doing some distressing, inking, punching and machine sewing. The shaped layer was cut from some of the Bo Bunny paper and then I stamped it using the postcard stamp from The Rubber Cafe Vintage Treasures Stamps

I then crackled the paper to get an aged look and inked it up and then stained it in spots with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Stain. I then put my Vintage image into a Kaisercraft wooden frame and got to work on my details.

I stamped some flowers using The Rubber Cafe Large Daisy Stamp, and then fussy cut out  multiple layers and applied The Rubber Cafe True Pink Puffies to the edges. Heating them up with my heat gun created all that gorgeous texture! 

I then took some Pearl Jellie Dots and added them to the centers to match my Vintage look. Next I took a Spellbinder Spiral Blossom 1 die and cut out the cream flower, inked the edges, and rolled it up. 

For the foliage, I used 2 different leaf types from The Rubber Cafe.  Leaf Set 1 was stamped on to green card stock and fussy cut out, tucking them in with pearl strands behind the flowers to complete the floral layer.

I cut out a decorative strip using a Spellbinder Parisian Accents die and using Scrap Happy Glue adhered some Estelle Crochet Lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon on top for an accent. I then attached it to my layout using some of that foam tape that I create using The One And Only Tape

Next I took a Dusty Attic Ribbon Slide and gussied it up using Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet and Picket Fence Stains. I then stamped the sentiment "Do You Ever Set And Dream" from one of The Rubber Cafe Vintage Treasures Stamps onto card stock, distressed it, and stained the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Stain and adhered it to the chipboard piece.

I stamped a butterfly from The Rubber Cafe Vintage Treasures Stamps onto card stock and fussy cut it out, tucking it behind the photo frame. I also stamped a Clock Face from The Rubber Cafe Vintage Treasures Stamps onto card stock,  embossed it, and fussy cut it out to. Then I tucked it behind one of the layers where I punched it.

I created another clock face using the same technique as above and tucked it behind a peek-a-boo I created by cutting and punching into the paper. I added some more of that Estelle Crochet Lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon and made a hand-rolled flower that I accented with The Rubber Cafe True Pink Puffies. Next I stuck a sweet vintage pin into it for accent.

I repeated the peek a boo at the bottom, cut out 2 corner decorative accents using the Spellbinder Parisian Accent die, stained them with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Stain, and popped on some Pearl Jellie Dots, adding them to the corners .


I love lots of dimension and texture. As you can see, The Rubber Cafe stamps and products can give you lots of that yumminess with a little imagination and creativity.
