I chose to upcycle the unused rubber that came with the clear mount stamp sets and cut an image with my Big Shot to make a new stamp. Thank you for your kind responses and comments! I actually made two cards for the blog hop but decided on one:
Today I am showing you the other card I made using the recycled rubber and Big Shot die.
I found a perfect size piece of rubber to cut out and put on my Big Shot die.
I used this shape to coordinate with my favorite Designer Series Paper, Sycamore Street from Sale-a-bration. Because you can no longer order this paper (boo hoo!), I thought I should try and use it up to make room for the NEW items coming out in the NEW catalog!
I stamped the image over and over using Tangerine Tango ink. It was difficult lining them up perfectly, but I thought it added to the "handmade" look.
I hope you get the opportunity to try making your own upcycled rubber stamp. The possibilities are endless!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
