Rubbernecker Kittie Kits Release and Blog Stroll


Good morning and welcome to the Rubbernecker release party and blog stroll for two new Kittie Kits!!! Whoohoo!!!!!

To celebrate this release, we invite you to blog stroll along with the Rubbernecker Red-Hot Mommas. The stroll begins at the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog where you will find all the details on how to win one of the sets being revealed or even possibly the GRAND PRIZE.

In order to win one of the new Kittie Kits sets revealed today, you must leave a comment here on my blog. A random number will be drawn on Friday, 12:00 Noon.

Here is my phrase clue for the GRAND PRIZE: WITH. To find the next clue, stroll over to Juliana's Blog.


I decided to make a card today with the cabin from Kitties new set called Kittie Kit Cause a Scene Farm Life #8 and the trees, grass, and stones from Kittie Kits The Moose is Loose#2 set.



The cabin, trees, rocks, and grass were stamped on the Prism Simply Smooth White cardstock with Archival Jet Black and embossed with clear ep.

Before sponging on the background colors, a circle was punched out of a piece of Eclipse Tape and attached over the area for the moon. The background was then sponged on using the Ink Blending tool and Faded Jeans, Broken China, and Dusty Concord Ranger Distress Inks. You can find the tutorial for this technique here. After blending the background, a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water was misted over the whole design and dried with a heat tool. After removing the Eclipse Tape, the Stamp Oasis sentiment was stamped with Archival Jet Black and embossed with clear ep.

The Perfect Pearls gave the background a pearly iridescent look.

I hope you can see the sentiment...it says "Sing in the rain, Dance in the sun, Dream by the light of the moon".

The finished design was matted on Black and the base cardstock was Frosted Amethyst Prism papers.
A frayed piece of May Arts Ribbon and a button with purple twine finished it off.

Thank for taking the stroll with me today and good luck with the drawing...I hope you win!!!!
