Banded Holly

I finally had time to play with some of the techniques in the latest Technique Junkies newsletter.  I decided to try out Overstamped Bands.


I used my new Holly stamp from RRD's Christmas Cheer half plate along with three colors of Distress Ink.  I love the way it came out.  The sentiment also came from the Christmas Cheer plate.


Don't miss out on the introductory price for this plate.  It's on sale now for $10.00 (reg. $15.00).  We've also got some other fabulous deals on our Specials page at the RRD website.

Some Merry News from Rogue Redhead Designs

Because we at RRD were naughty this year and were late with our new Christmas Cheer plate, we are going to be extra nice and offer it for the unbelievably low introductory price of $10.00 until January 31, 2014!


Christmas Cheer is part of our Vintrigue line which highlights vintage style images.  This half plate of unmounted stamps includes some fabulous focal images, a merry mini background, elegant elements and some seasonal sentiments.



In addition to announcing this new release, we would also like to announce our Holiday Inspiration segment on our blog.  Each month, we will showcase another holiday card or project to help you be well ahead of schedule with all your holiday crafting.  Look for the fun to begin in January!



You can get your Christmas Cheer plate at the Rogue Redhead Designs website!

We know you can't go shopping for yourself before the holidays, but we wanted you to be able to have some fun spoiling yourself after the festivities are done so we put together some amazing Specials for you!  We've put together a Four Seasons Bundle which includes Floriculture, Beach Babes, Nature Notes and Christmas Cheer.  We also have a Rogue's Choice bundle including Nature Notes and popular Bits and Pieces plate.

Best Teacher

Around this time of year, loads of students go looking for that special something to give to the teachers that make such a difference to them.  My daughter is among them.  We've been searching high and low for just the right gifts to make this season special and to show her appreciation to her fabulous teachers. 


The only part that wasn't hard was coming up with cards to go with the gifts.  This year, my Best Teacher set from S.W.A.L.K. will be getting a workout.  This card is one of a set I made, each a little different.

Stamps: Best Teacher (S.W.A.L.K.  - now available at Rogue Redhead Designs)

I made the card nice and big so the Roguette had plenty of room to write inside.  For the background panel, I used some  BasicGrey paper with loads of letters and numbers on it that I had stashed away.  The apple strip came from another piece of designer scrap.  I thought it was a nice way to tie in the apple that the teacher was holding.

While these stamps come pre-mounted on cling foam, I did take my scissors and cut apart the teacher and student so that I could have a bit more versatility. 


I am entering this card into the following fab challenges:



Divas by Design - Anything Goes

The Stamping Chef - Anything Goes

In Love with S.W.A.L.K.

Romantic notes anyone? Love this cute little couple smooching! For this card, I thought I would use a mostly monochromatic color palette and I really like how it turned out!


I kept the same subtle colors going when I chose the designer paper for the background panel. Loved how it had little pops of color but was not overwhelming.  These two were really fun to color!  I think I am getting better at hair but it still seems to elude me :)

Stamps: Stamps:  A Little Kiss et (S.W.A.L.K.) - Now at RRD!

S.W.A.L.K. at RRD

While continuing to create our own unique unmounted vintage-inspired stamp plates, Rogue Redhead is expanding to include some select contemporary images from other manufacturers.  One of the new lines that RRD will be carrying includes S.W.A.L.K. characters by Santoro.

These sets are small but mighty.  Each one comes with a sweet central image and corresponding sentiment along with little embellishments to make your creation more individual.  I love the way a different color scheme and slightly different layout can create a whole new look.

You can see what I mean with the Blooming Wonderful set!

Blooming Wonderful - Price US $9.95

I created one card with a Christmassy color palette and designer paper for a different kind of holiday card for a beloved friend.  Here's how it came out!  Isn't she darling?

Stamps: Blooming Wonderful set (S.W.A.L.K.) - Now at RRD!

With a little change in color and a different layout, this little sweetie comes to life on a fabulous all-occasion card designed for one of those "just because" moments.

Stamps: Blooming Wonderful set (S.W.A.L.K.) - Now at RRD!

I can't decide if I like her better as a blonde, redhead or brunette!
