Awhile back, during my stamping through stencils tutorial, I shared an old technique rubber band stamping, but I did it through my stencil for a fun look. Today, I want to focus on the rubber band technique and share a few fun ways to use it on your own cards! Be sure to watch the video tutorial down below for all the details!
Some products used in the video above were sent to me free of charge for design team purposes. I only design for companies I stand behind 100%. If you would like to see what design teams I am currently a part of or have been a part of in the past head HERE.
All of the cards I made today are super fun and I would have a hard time choosing a favorite, for sure! I wanted to share a few different ways to incorporate the rubber band stamping technique into your card designs and a few fun ways to take it a step further!
The first card I made is an anniversary card, which to be honest, is something I struggle with! I started by die cutting a frame from kraft and white cardstock. I used the white center cut and ink blended Eucalytus ink (CP) to cover the panel. Then it was time to stamp with the rubber bands.
To prepare my stamp I used an acrylic block and wrapped rubber bands around it in all different directions. All that you have to do after that is ink up the “stamp” and stamp it onto the paper. SUPER easy!! I added a sentiment and decorated the frame with a few flower stamps to finish the card.

I wanted to take this technique a step further on my next card so I masked stripes on a white cardstock panel to begin with. Then, I ink blended a rainbow background. Before taking the painter’s tape stripes I used the same rubber band stamp I had used on the first card, inked it up with black ink and stamped it onto the background. These “stamps” clean fairly easily and can be reused over and over again!!
After carefully removing the painter’s tape stripes, I stamped a quick sentiment into one of the openings to finish the card!

On my third and final card I started by die cutting a white cardstock panel with different sized circle dies to create a fun background. Each one of those circles I sponged on a bit of ink in Halloween colors! Then, I stamped over the circles with a rubber band stamp and black ink.
I finished the card with a quick sentiment and a few ghosts for a super fun and easy Halloween card!
