A Best Friend... Rubbernecker and Impression Obsession Stamps

Do you make friendship cards? How do you successfully use up patterned paper you don't like? Well, I have found that making cards for friends is so enjoyable.  It's been a way to express the sassy, funny side of crafting - a real way for my personality to come in. These corresponding stamps by Rubbernecker really fit the bill. And, I was able to use paper I didn't prefer by using a distressed Impression Obsession background stamp on top. My favorite technique these days is coloring with Copic Markers.

 seemingly innocent image becomes sinister once the sentiment is expressed. I love it! 


  • Recollections 110 lb white cardstock 
  • Stampin' Up! patterned cardstock
  • Copic X-press It Blending Card
  • Rubbernecker - sentiment ( a best friend) and main image (best friend)
  • Impression Obsession - sunburst background stamp
  • Stash - enamel dots
  • Copic Markers
  • Memento - Tuxedo Black ink
  • Colorbox - chalk ink

 seemingly innocent image becomes sinister once the sentiment is expressed. I love it!
