Ruby's Crafty Anniversary Blog Hop


Welcome to Rubeena’s Crafting Anniversary 2-Day Blog Hop! This hop is epic with more than 70 guests and over $1,000 in sponsored prizes! 
Not only are we celebrating four years since Rubeena first discovered cardmaking but also crafting in general. This industry is made up of wonderful individuals who are creative, inspirational, kind, and incredibly supportive! Hop along so you can learn about why we create and how much joy it brings us!

If you are following along in the hop, then you should have arrived from an amaingly talented friend of mine - Caly Person!

For my card I decided to use a Wplus9 stamp set that I have had forever and never inked up. I love that the stamp set represents creativity and color - two of my favorite things! :)


I stamped a bunch of the paint tubes onto Hammermill card stock with MFT Extreme Black ink and then I coloured them all in with rainbow colours. I used Copic markers to do the colouring and then I fussy cut them all with my scissors.

I stamped the sentiment onto a 4" x 5 1/4" card stock panel and then I adhered the paint tubes all around it with liquid adhesive. For a bit of interest I added the aqua paint leaning against the sentiment.


I stamped the smaller words onto the paint tubes with black ink and I added a bit of shading under the aqua one with a grey marker. I completed the design with some color on the bottom half of the letters in the sentiment.
