Happy Heart Day w/Rub Ons!


I'm SO excited that Stampin'Up! is now carrying Rub Ons!! I've never used them with any luck, but wow, was this easy!! As a demo, we were allowed to pre-order out of the Preview Brochure, so I couldn't resist ordering them. Now, I'm counting down the days until I can order all of them out of the new Spring/Summer Idea Book & Catalog! By the way, the new catalog has landed at my house... so if you want one, let me know!

This set is called Happy Heart Day. It's included as part of the Valentine Bundle Promo starting January 2nd. I paper pieced the elephant with the Bali Breeze Designer paper (also available January 2nd). I took my blender pen, dipped in Purely Pomegranate classic ink and colored some highlights right on the elephant. What's better than a pink polka dotted elephant?

You get two huge sheets of rub ons in the package. One sheet is white and the other is black. I used the white for the sentiment and for the center of the flowers.

Cut out the part you want to use from the sheet. Peel off the back and then stick it where you want it on your project. For the flowers, I stuck it on a scrap piece of Purely Pomegranate card stock. Then, take the stick (included) and gently rub across the front. Carefully peel off the sheet and SHAZAM..... it's on the paper!! I then took the Three for You Punch and punched out the flower. How cool is that? Cool indeed baby. I'm a rub on newbie and if I can do it, anyone can.

Here is the recipe:


Stamps: Happy Heart Day
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, Shimmery White, Bali Breeze Designer Paper.
Ink: Basic Black, Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky.
Other: Three for Three Punch, Photo Corner Punch, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, Stipple Brushes, Blender Pen, Crafter's Tool Kit, Dazzling Diamonds, Ice Rhinestone Brads, Eastern Elegance Rub Ons, Dimensionals, Janome Sew Mini, Scor-Pal.

With the kids home, and the holiday, my days are all off. I keep thinking it's the weekend. I can't believe 2008 is just a few days away. We don't have anything big planned. The kids are looking forward to it though. We stay up, watch movies and each junk food. Hope you all have a great New Year with the ones you love. Thanks for stopping by!!

There's probably not much that's better than a polka dot elephant! I've never tried rub-ons so I'm anxious to try them. I love how you put them in the center of the flowers!
