Color Inspiration with Guest Designer Eva!

We’ve had Eva Dobilas of The Love of Life blog creatively guest designing for us this month and we’ve loved every moment of it. Her eye for color combination and sweet diverse designs have really inspired us. Today’s post is without exception. Enjoy!


Today I have some pretty things to share made with more Rubber Cafe goodies.

My first item is a tag.  I simply love making tags and when I first saw the Vintage Treasures set I knew I was going to make a tag for sure with it, so that was the birth of this tag.  Take a look at this Tim Holtz inspired tag of mine. 

I love this stamp set and today I have two ways to show you how you can use it.  But first about my tag.  I stamped some of the images with black ink and some I clear embossed on the tag, such as the clock and I just used my Distress Inks to color in the tag.  I also clear embossed the pretty butterfly onto white paper and colored it in with Distress inks.

To complete my tag I used Spellbinders Foliage dies and also added some pretty Petaloo flowers.  Here is a close up of my tag.

I mentioned above that the same Vintage Treasures stamp set was used on my second project, too, which is a card.  I love the background stamp from that set, so I wanted to create my card's background with it.

I combined this with the very unique and beautiful Lace Flower stamp which I colored in with Copic markers and my sentiment came from the Fabulous Phrases set.

I sure hope you enjoyed my projects and get inspired to pick up these pretty stamps.  You'll certainly see me using them again. :)

Once again I wanted to thank Rubber Cafe for having me as a guest designer this month....I have had such a pleasure working with these pretty stamps and the dies, too.

As always, thanks for visiting and wishing you a beautiful day!
