Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Use Your Rubber Scraps!!!!!If you have ever bought Stampin' Up! stamps, you know that they are die cut from a larger sheet of rubber. They used to not be die cut and you would have to cut them out yourself. Now the process is a lot simpler - the hard work is done for you :) There is still left over "scrap" rubber from these die cut sets and I have a habit of saving the scraps. Why? Well, do you see the maple leaf image on this card???? I created it using a piece of scrap rubber, a sketch of a maple leaf, my craft & rubber scissors, and a wood block from the craft store! What can you make from your scraps????
This card won an Honorable Mention in Stampin' Up!s July contest! I was so excited!!!!! It is featured on the demonstrator portion of the Stampin' Up! website in the on-line extras for the Stampin' Success magazine. The theme of the contest was Land That I Love and I made both a U.S. card and a Canada card to submit for the contest. When I thought about making this card an image of the mounted police immediately came into my head! Must have been those cartoons I watched as a child :) I decided there had to be a way to make the Canadian Mountie using punches. Here is a close up:
