Welcome to a new challenge at the Retro Rubber Challenge! This time we have a color challenge – just in time for the fourth of July or really any reason to use red, white and blue!
I started by die cutting a couple of fishtail banners – one in real red and one in some star paper. I am following the Fab Friday sketch and think this card turned out rather niftily.
I added a bit of striped paper on either side of the banners and a bit of twine and a star to finish off the card. I slipped the sentiment in at the last minute (because I realized that I had NO stamping on this card!) on the star banner where it fits perfectly. (The stamp is about 3 or 4 years old).
Now it’s your turn! Create a card with some red, white and blue and link up your creation HERE!
Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to pop in tomorrow!
Supplies: CS: SU! White and real red. Pattern paper from stash. Stamps: PTI red, white and blue. Other: MFT stitched fishtail banners. PTI linen impression plate. SU! Linen thread. Star.
Welcome to the Retro Rubber Challenge #17! This challenge is a patriotic challenge – so dig out your red, white and blue and get to work! Here is all you need to do to enter – use stamps older than a year AND add either sparkles or use fourth of July themed stuff (or both if you would like!)!!
My card is very CAS. I started with a few stripes of red and blue. I stamped the sentiment, die cut it using my zigzag dies and popped it up on the card front. A bit of sparkle and I was done!
Now for my confession – I used a stamp set that is less than a year old! Yipes! It is a good thing that I am not entering this challenge! I used the stripe from the newish SU! butterfly basics set! What was I thinking? My apologies to you all! I made this card a couple of weeks ago and realized my mistake as I was writing up my post! Too late!
But here is what you can do – dig out your old stamps (do as I say, not as I do!) and play along with us! Link up your patriotic visions HERE!
Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to stop in tomorrow!
Supplies: CS: PTI white. Stamps: SU! butterfly basics and PTI red, white and blue. Inks: SU! real red and night of navy. Other: PTI linen impression plate, MFT zigzag stitched circles and rhinestones.
