In doing some blog hopping and message board surfing yesterday I came across a really cool tip for rub ons. You can use your cuttlebug to apply rubons and they come out perfectly. I tried this last night and it was the easiest thing to do. Use your normal embossing sandwich, except put your paper under the embossing folder with the rub on where you want it. A plate, B plate, cardstock or papern paper, rubon, any cuttlebug embossing folder, b plate, run thru your machine, when it comes out the other side your paper will have the rub on nicely adheared and you shouldn't have any missing or lifted spots.
This first picture is a 8x8 recipe layout I did for a ground beef recipe swap. I used distress inks to ink the bottom edge of the paper, the houndstooth cuttlebug embossing folder for the accent strip and inked the embossing with spiced marigold distress ink. I used a sepia ink pad with the flourish stamps for the back ground.
This get well soon card was made using the D'vine swirls embossing folder, the get well soon is from the Beyond Birthdays cartridge and the flower was stamped in versamark ink on glossy cardstock then brayered over with a rainbow ink pad.
This thinking of you card was stamped with distress inks, I love those inks. I used the cuttlebug tag team butterfly set for the butterfly, I cut one butterfly of a blue textured cardstock then embossed it and lightly sanded it to make the texture pop. The top butterfly was cut of a patterned paper, embossed then inked.
