All aboard for Blog tour 2!

TOUR 2 – STOP 5 – “Summer Love Rub-on

 This is stop 2 on a 19 blog tour of the offerings in the 2009 Mini Occasions catalog.  

I will be your hostess at this stop and share with you a few projects made using the too cool Summer Love rub-ons.

 summerlove-rubonLike all the Stampin’ Up rub-ons, they go on easily and look very nice. This set is one of 2 full color rub-on sets. See p.172 in the Spring Summer catalog for Bright Delights (#113887) if you like the look and want to see more options. The Summer Love Rub-ons have 4 sayings and a large number of colorful art that matches stamps, punches and dies available by Stampin’ Up! Use them together or just the rub-ons in the grouping provided by Stampin’ Up or in bits and pieces. Here is what the set looks like:



The first sample I would like to share is the handbag for carrying cards I made for my downline at Regional in Seattle.


Then I have a quick card that utilizes the framed text for the message and rub-on flowers to embellish a water-colored image of a carefree summer swing.




Last I have a quick mini card and envelope that replicates the scallop cards in our catalog but using the new lace border punch. I also used the new scallop oval punch with the smile  rub-on. What a sweet simple thinking of you card…



Thank you for stopping by and letting me show you the Summer Love Rub-ons. Please continue to the next stop on the Tour.


Stop 6 is at Lori Stilger ‘s blog, where she will be sharing the joy of the Oval All stamp set and the Scallop Oval Punch.
