What! No Stamps!

So I got these rub-ons at the end of January, and I only used them for the first time today! It's not that I didn't want to, but since they are a finite item, I was guilty of hoarding. Once again, I sat down and attempted to create something amazing. I didn't know where to start, so I checked out this week's challenges. The colour challenge immediately caught my eye. It was to use River Rock, Basic Black, and Whisper White. Well, these rub-ons come in both white and black, perfect! I cut out a square piece of the river rock and got to work. It was really simple, but I love how it turned out. I applied some rub-ons to a few black buttons and added those in there for a bit of something different. I have some envelopes that are 5x5, so I figured I'd make the card a bit smaller so I could use one of them. I added a few rub-ons to the envelopes for that little extra something special.
As a side note, I have to say I was really impressed with the quality of the rub-ons. They didn't come off on my warm hands, yet they applied to the paper and buttons really easily! Fantastic.
Paper: White, Black, River Rock
Accessories, etc.: neutral buttons, Happiness & Blooms rub-ons


  1. clean and simple, a great card. Are these the Stampin' Up rubons?? They look like it so I am assuming but you didn't indicate that. I also love that color combo, I might have to give it a try this weekend.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Beautiful card! I recently created a card using the new SU! rub ons and fell in love with them. The quality is amazing. Thanks for the inspiration.
