Chocolate & Chateau Bella Rub-ons!

Ooh, my two favorite things! Yes, I love rub-ons, there I said it! I especially love them in my scrapbooks because of the possibilities with them! So I made these two cards for today's Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS. Also, since rub-ons are currently 20% off with a $20 order from SU I just had to play around with them and show some samples! This first card is using a layout from Becky Carafa- she has perfected the clean and simple style on cards and is often inspiring me! The focal point sentiment which fits perfectly in our Curly Label punch is a rub-on in the Chateau Bella collection, as well as the flourish thingys on the white part, and the rows of dots below the ribbon!

The second card is using rub-ons from this same collection, which just happen to perfectly coordinate with the Bella Rose Designer Series Papers in the SU catalog! This time I wanted to emphasize that all SU rub-ons come in more than one color. In this case, chocolate and white. The oval sentiment and the chocolate rose at the bottom are both rub-ons. Notice how the chocolate rose overlaps the edge of the pretty patterned paper? That's one of the reasons I like them so much- they can go nearly anywhere.
Inside this card I also used the white rose and leaves (next pic). On this I also used the felt ribbon in the current Mini Catalog as well as the Top Note die with the Big Shot. I've been getting more use out of that Big Shot than I ever dreamed, and I only have TWO dies so far!
These rub-ons come in 12" long packages so some are designed in long strips which are perfect for edges and borders on 12x12 scrapbook pages. I recently purchased the school set (can't remember name right now?!) and will do some pages with it before long- I can't wait because I really don't have much school themed stuff otherwise.
OK, that's enough blah blah blah. Hope you like! Go pull out your rub-ons if you haven't in a while. What? Don't have any? Then don't forget to check out the promotion that is going on right now! Thanks for stopping by!
