Scrapbooking is Easy with The Rubber Cafe Stamps

Hello, my dear stamping friends, Irit is here  with some scrapbooking inspiration!

As some of your  know, I am mostly a scrapbooker, also I stamp on my pages a lot, so once a month I decided to showcase my scrapbooking attempts and hope I do inspire you to combine scrapbooking with some stamping. It can be some  background stamping, making stamped embellishments or altering chipboards with stamps: the sky is a limit and you can even  make your own   patterned paper is you stamp on a solid cardstock.
So here are some new layouts made with The Rubber Cafe stamps .
My first layout is  no patterned paper kind, just solid black and white cardstock ,stamped and embossed with color embossing powders. I made the stamped rainbow circle with  script stamp from Steampunk  Charity Wings set, using colored embossing powders and Clear Embossing ink only. The Black and White part of the circle was made with Enamels  Accents . I made the stamped chipboard  half circle on the upper part of my page with a  stamp from Vintage Treasures set , clear embossed  and made the lines for my hand writing with Basic Backgrounds 2 Lines. I masked my cardstock to make is just half circled.
This page is "All about me": I am pretty much a Black and White kind of  person, no grey areas in between (outfits too are mostly B/W), but when I dream (or craft) I do it with lots of colors.
So this page was all about stamping on  bare chipboards.

And my last page for today: my Passover page, made with our Passover photos and the
Tree of Life set that  was just perfect for this layout. On this page I made some background stamping with Star of David stamp from the set, using pink and blue inks and clear embossing powders. Then I made a Dove embellishment, stamping the Dove  stamp over a vellum, heat embossed and hand cut. I also stamped HAI stamp (means Life) over some small tag on the lower left corner.

I hope I inspired you a bit to try some scrapbooking using your stamps and if those are The Rubber Cafe ones, it's even better!
