The Rubber Cafe - New Release Blog Hop-Day #4!

Welcome to The Rubber Cafe new release blog hop Day #4 in celebration of our brand new releases!! We are celebrating our new release called On the Fence bundle, which also happens to be our Grand Prize, so be sure to read on through the end of the post to see how you can be eligible for this fantastic set!  As you can see this set comes with a new exclusive The Rubber CafĂ© die template manufactured by Spellbinders Paper Arts called On the Fence!  And you'll find the creative options are endless!

Today you'll just be hopping with one Designer- Me!- Karen Thede-
My project for today continues with my post from Saturday where I introduced the first part of my "Home Sweet Home" Wall hanging- 

Here's the rest of my wall hanging - the fun part of this project was in using the new  On the Fence die!  It's versatility amazed me!  Each time I've teamed it with the Window Garden set, but I tried to use it differently for each portion of my wall hanging. 

  • In the first part of my wall hanging I made the cluster of corigated chipboard roses with the On the fence die. I added sparkle by gently spritzing with a Frosted sparkle spray by Tsukineko
  • The middle 'Sweet' Shoppe, I used the die to cut my striped awning paired with theWindow Garden set this was fun! I also added a corner of fence on the lower edge cut again from corrugated cardboard.
  • The last 'Home' section I think may be my favorite! Here I used the Fence die as a fence, but my special twist, I wove my black gingham ribbon through for a finishing touch.     
Here's a close up of my roses. 
For a quick tutorial on how I made these, hop on over here to my blog- HERE
I also have more information and pics on the rest of my wall hanging.
