Weekly Giveaway: Rubberstamp Ave

There's nothing like a tropical paradise to brighten your day, is there? Today's giveaway will do that for one lucky winner. The stamps for the giveaway this week are from Rubberstamp Ave. -- and everyone can share in the fun, because RSA is generously offering a 10% discount for TJ members, too!

The card above uses the tropical paradise stamps with a Glimmer Mist Marbling background (June 2010 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter). The image itself is stamped on luscious Cryogen White Iridescent paper from Paper Temptress. I colored the image with Copics AND colored pencils, and used an airbrush to add wisps of color to the background. (The Crygen white paper is amazing -- it keeps the integrity of the image while providing a gorgeous satin shimmer.) The punched leaves on the sides have also been spritzed with Glimmer Mist.

Here's a look at the 7"-9" stamp sheet being given away:
How's that for paradise?

No, it is easy enough to enter to win this stamp sheet and card. Simply leave me a comment with your email address, and let me know how YOU would use this sheet. Naming a technique to use with it is also good! My trusty random number generator will select a winner from all the entries on Monday, June 21st at 9am est. You do NOT need to be a Technique Junkie to enter or win. Good luck!

I love the plate... So many things to do with it. Especially with summer time and then autumn rolling in.

Gorgeous card and stamp sheet! I live in Paradise (well, actually Florida but close enough for now) and can see lots of projects using these stamps! Copic airbrush backgrounds, burnished backgrounds, it would be hard to decide. This would be a great giveaway to win!

Gee, I almost bought this one at the stamp show in addition to the one with lighthouses! In a attempt to be more frugal I only got the one!

Oh, i would take this on vacation with me and make my postcards, maybe stamping on glossy cardstock and using the chalk/resist with Cats Eye tropical colors! I especially love the bird row.

Terry said...

Truly a gorgeous card and stamp set! I see Antique Glimmers calling as a technique to be used on just about any project. Thanks for the giveaway and since I have never won, it would be nice to be selected!!!

Pat,

I would use the Pulled Glimmers technique with the flamingos! I'm dying to try that technique from the June issue and I think those birds are just screaming for a sunset! Loved your card, but then you always do such beautiful
work. My email is:

Wonderful images. They would be a treat to work with. The card is beautiful.

billiejo said...

Amazing images. I lived in tropical paradise for 11 years, so needless to say, I have a lot to document. I am planning an altered book about some of our adventures and this set is exactly what I need to create the perfect book. I think this might even be the excuse I've looked for to start my copic marker collection, including the air brush. Add a little glimmer mist and WOW! Thanks.

Mary Strauser said...

Wow that is a neat set.
I would love to try that with the pulled glimmer tech
Or just to color it with my h20 which I use alot.
Please enter me.

Susan said...

Love your card and this sheet of stamps. I could use any one of the images and stamp or emboss it in black onto a Glimmer Mist Marbled background and use this as my focal point for the card. Thanks for a chance to win.

This is a great sheet of stamps. I would use it for birthday cards for missionaries. I would probably stupple the color on the paper than stamp. Thanks Pat.

Pat,

Please enter me in this giveaway!. What an inspirational stamp set. I would probably experiment with polished stone technique and with pulled glimmer technique. However I can tell it would call for many more experimental techniques!

I think polished stone or an emboss resist technique would be gorgeous ... thanks for the chance to win some stunning images.

Great summer card - makes me feel like sitting out on the porch with a Mint Julep! I would use the Pulled Glimmers or Artwork Spritz.

I love their stamps Pat! Let's see...Pull Glimmers would be pretty, as would Frog in a Blender..but perhaps some Opalite inks, can't remember the TJ name.

Anonymous said...

Oh my goodness, I absolutely love this set. I was in Hawaii last year so I would use these images while scrapbooking the pictures from my trip. I would use colored pencils or Copic markers with these stamps they are begging for tons of color.

I really loved your artwork using one of these stamps - fantastic!

Wow!! Wonderful card as usual Pat!!
What a beautiful stamp sheet. So many techniques I'd love to use with this set.. 3 in particular but 1 I can't remember the name of with acetate and the other would be the glimmer marbling and the third would be up and over using just the bottom part on the over.
Thanks for the chance!

As usual, love your card, Pat. There are so many techniques that could be used with these, to name just a few Faux Dominoes, Glimmer Mist, Background Whimsy, Washed Colors, and I would love to try Rubber Rubbing with them. Thanks for another chance to win one of your works of art...

Char- The Mad Shopper said...

itzamitzi said...

Wow! That card is gorgeous! The stamp set is so beautiful. I can see some Pulled Glimmer backgrounds used with those stamps.

Lisa G said...

I would use the stamps with the jungle feel for a funny "hang in there" type card that says "It's a JUNGLE out there..." and on the inside, "So hang on tight to your loin cloth!"

I would stamp it and copic marker it and maybe some stickle.

I'd like to try some older techniques with these images... Acetate Smooch (2009 Dec), Bleach Overstamping (2004 June), or Cracked Glass (2008 Feb) I'd love to own this sheet of gorgeous images!

Vicki Romaine said...

I would use the flamingo stamp on aqua colored paper using Ice Crystal technilrque. For some of the other stamps I would use the woodgrain embossing folder and highlight.

Mary Ann said...

Pat,
These stamps are so wonderful, the use for them is unlimited. I always look for things that are a little outside the box and far from cutsie. These are great for backgrounds, book covers, texture, and maybe cards. I don't do to many of those. I could really enhance my art with theses babies.
Pick me!!!!!!

Shelley said...

Love the card and the stamps! I'd be doing a Joeseph's Coat technique on the larger stamps, but I've got to admit that I'd probably use the flamingos the most, lol.
