Miss You {published - Rubber Stamp Madness}

Published in the Rubber Stamp Madness magazine, Spring 2016 edition


I'm so excited to say this was my second card to be published in the Spring 2016 edition!  It's located in the Black & White plus One section.


1. Cut piece of white cardstock 2.75" x 5".
2. Cut 4 strips of patterned paper 1.5" x 3.75".  Then cut on the diagonal, point to point.
3. Starting at the vertical center of the white cardstock, place the patterned paper until all the white areas are covered.  Make sure there are no gaps between each of the pieces of patterned paper.  (You may need to move the triangles up or down to get the cardstock covered.)  The patterned paper will go over the edges.
4. Adhere patterned paper onto the cardstock, turn cardstock over to the back and cut off the excess paper from the edges.
5. Stamp the sun image from Unity Stamps onto white cardstock, color with Copic markers, and fussy cut out.
6. Die cut a piece of black cardstock using the Large Octagons dies from Spellbinders.  Cut the octagon in half.
7. Adhere the sun to the black octagon, aligning the bottom of the stamped image with the bottom of the die cut.
8. Mat layered black and yellow cardstock; adhere to white card base toward the top, leaving a space for the sentiment.
9. Adhere strip of black ribbon to bottom portion of the white card base.
10. Die cut the Miss You sentiment (a Die-Versions Sweet Wordlets die) from yellow cardstock and add a touch of glitter to the letters with a Spica glitter pen.
10. Adhere to the ribbon.


1. Using the Spellbinders Large Octagons dies, die cut two octagons from the yellow cardstock, one octagon from white cardstock, and one octagon from patterned paper.  Layer on top of each other.
2. Stamp the sentiment, a rubber stamp from Unity Stamps, onto the center of the white cardstock with Distress Ink (Black Soot).
3. Immediately cover with Ranger Clear embossing powder and heat set.
4. Adhere on the inside of the card.
5. Die cut the Little Open Scallop Strip (by My Favorite Things) from patterned paper and adhere to the top of the inside of your card.

If you haven't checked out this magazine and you are a stamper, you definitely should.  Rubber Stamp Madness is the original rubber stamp magazine, started way back in 1978 and it's still going strong.  There are great how-to's as well as lots of other resources.
