Retro Rubber Challenge #74...

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We have a fun sketch challenge this go around.


I started by using a couple of my favorite stamp sets – Clearly Besotted Sunburst from 2015 and PTI Be from 2016.  I stamped three circle images in different colors and then added the words to each circle. rrcb 74 1 (558x640)

I added the main sentiment before running thru the linen impression plate and backing the card front with pink cardstock and a kraft card base. rrcb 74 2 (640x576)

This card is going to a dear friend who has been going thru difficult times.  It’s always good to be reminded of who we are and how highly others think of us when we are feeling a little lost.  Don't you agree?

Scary Times For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge for As You See It and it’s a scary one!  The challenge is to make a scary card.  Now, I really don’t have a lot of scary stamps so I decided to make a sort of scary card.

#161 10.20.17

I don’t know about you, but if we run out of coffee at my house, it gets pretty scary.  Thus my scary card! aysi 161 1 (552x640)

I started by diecutting some patterned paper and then adhered to the card base.  I then die cut and stamped the coffee cup and popped up on the patterned paper. aysi 161 2 (640x471)

That’s it for today.  Good news – I am hoping to get back to posting on a regular schedule starting in November.  My craft cave has been getting cobwebs for lack of use and I am itching to get back in there.
