More Scrapbooking with Stamps from The Rubber Cafe'

Hello, my dear stamping friends!
Today I am going to share more of my scrapbooking pages made with gorgeous stamps from The Rubber Cafe.

For my first scrapbooking page, I used my stamps to frame in my photo.  I used white ink and white embossing powder for the interest.  My best results when creating white images is using Clearsnap Frost White pigment ink and any white embossing powder.  You'll achieve a much better look then with clear embossing  ink and white powder only.

I used our Floral Swirl stamp 3 times, for this necessary visual triangle on my page.

For  my second page, I made my background with the same white on white stamping technique with heat embossing which really popped my stamped elements off the page!

I stamped using all 4 stamps from Grandma's Doilies with Clear Embossing ink and White embossing powder this time.  I am not this clean and simple scrapper, so I need to add some stamping to make my pages be less flat if I decide to stick to a lot of white space.

Here's a close up to those doilies

This page was published in Scrapstreet web magazine Summer 2012 issue

My final layout for today is an "All About Me" page!   I used a one single stamp here, but what a stamp! It's the 'Shalom' stamp from the Tree of Life set.

This page was published in SNR May 2012 issue

"Shalom" as well as a common Hebrew name also means "Peace" and "Hello", and as Shalom is also my family name, it was perfect to include as part of my journaling. I even wrote about having my name stamp in this journaling.

So this is my post for today. See you an a week with more inspiration.
