Today's card uses the Rubber Band stamping technique that Brandy Cox reminded me of during the  Creativate Spring retreat.  It's been a long time since I'd used this technique and I'd forgotten the unique look it gives.

To make the background I used Sweet Sorbet, Cherry Cobber and Calypso Coral Ink colors.  It makes a bright and cheery card, don't you think?

To make the background, just wrap several rubber bands around an acrylic block and use that as your stamp.  I used all the same size rubber bands because that is what I had, but you could also vary the sizes.  Once your block is wrapped, stamp multiple times in the colors of your choice until you get the appearance you like.   It can't get much easier than that!

The flowers are all stamped in Sweet Sorbet with Daffodil Delight centers and the leaves are Parakeet Party.  These flowers are amazingly easy to stamp and die cut with the coordinating dies 

I added a little double bow made with Sweet Sorbet Metallic Ribbon and colored some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend marker.  The clear Basic Rhinestones are a great embellishment because you can make them any color you want with your Stampin Blends.  Don't have Stampin' Blends?  A Sharpie Marker also works!

For the inside I stamped another Sweet Sorbet flower and then added a sentiment.  I like how the letters in this large "Sending" stamp sort of go up and down because if you don't stamp it perfectly straight no one will know.

I hope you like today's card with my flowers on a brick wall background.   If you haven't tried this technique with the rubber bands, I challenge you to try it.  You are going to like how quick and easy it is.  Be sure to try it in different color combinations.  I think it would also be a fun background for a masculine, cute or humorous style of card.
