I started by die cutting some stitched clouds and a stitched sun.

I stamped some random circles for raindrops and then added the sentiment and die cuts, using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.

Retro Rubber Challenge #58...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge! It’s anything goes!

RRCB 58

As usual, I have a super CAS card for you. I started by stamping the leaf image and the sentiment in black. These images are from Simon Says Stamp Explore Nature which I have had since 2015.

Then I used colored pencils to color the leaf. I ran the card thru the linen impression plate and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge #57...

It’s time for a new Retro Rubber Challenge! We have a color inspiration for you to try!

RRCB 57

Due to a pinched nerve in my back that happened last Friday, I am on the injured reserve list and did not get a card done for the challenge. It also sidetracked me from getting any cards done so I am not sure when I will have my next post! Please hang in there with me!

In the meantime, click HERE to go to the Retro Rubber site and see the AMAZING design team creations! They are really outstanding! Plus we have a great guest designer in Lynne Jardine!

Have a great week! I hope to be well enough to get some cards done for next week but at this time it is all up in the air! February has been an interesting month for me – with the crud and now my back – good gravy!

Happy Crafting!


Retro Rubber Challenge #56...

It’s time for a new Retro Rubber Challenge! We are all about the birthdays for this challenge and if you are like me, you never have a birthday card handy!

  RRCB 56

I started by stamping these layered flowers in pool party and Bermuda bay. Then I added a few crushed curry and delightful Dijon sprinkles. The flower images are from Rubbernecker that I have had at least 3 or 4 years and my sentiment stamp is one I have had since 2014.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 56 1 (546x640)
After I added the sentiment, I ran the card front thru the linen impression plate and then die cut using a stitched rectangle. I decided the pattern paper needed a bit more flair and die cut it using a mini scalloped rectangle. I layered everything together and added the final touches of dots and rhinestones.

Retro Rubber Challenge #55 part two...

It’s the second week of the Retro Rubber Challenge! It’s all about hearts! (on a card!)

RRCB 55

I started by using a dotted chevron die and cut three lines. I backed the white card front with cherry cobbler.

I stamped the sentiment and then added a few small hearts and rhinestones.

Retro Rubber Challenge #55...

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber! We have a theme challenge for you that is all heart! Just use hearts on your card and at least one stamp older than a year and you are good to go!

RRCB 55

I started with a stamp set from Papertrey Ink from 2013. And I have owned it since then! I stamped love and is all you need on white cardstock.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 55 1 (640x557)

Then I die cut a string of hearts several times and adhered together before attaching to the card.

Retro Rubber Challenge #54 part two...

There’s still time for you to play along with the Retro Rubber Challenge! Just use snow on a card and you are good to go!

RRCB 54

This is one of those cards that looked so much better in my head! I used white ink to stamp the snow flakes and add snow to the branches and you can hardly see either in the pictures. I tried several different ways to photo and maybe the lesson here is to use white embossing powder or invest in better white ink!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 54 3 (522x640)

Anyway, I started with my tree images in green and then added the white.   I added the sentiment and then die cut the square. A little bit of washi and the card was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge #54...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  We have a theme challenge to use snow on your card! And don’t forget to use a stamp older than one year!

RRCB 54

I opted to use paper that had snow on it and die cut a double stitched circle. Then I die cut a couple of mittens out of some coordinating paper and added a string of pearls to the edge of each of them.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 54 1 (525x640)

I stamped the sentiment (from the PTI Winter Hills circa 2012) and then used a washi tape die to die cut the cream linen paper. I added a piece of perfect plum (that I also die cut with the washi tape) underneath to help the sentiment stand out a bit. A few enamel dots and pearls finished off the card.

Retro Rubber Challenge #53 part two...

It’s the second week of the Retro Rubber Challenge so I whipped up a clean and simple card using colors inspired by the challenge.

RRCB 53

I die cut three hour glass dies in white, real red and garden green. All three colors had been run thru the linen impression plate first.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 53 3 (571x640)

I attached the white die to a crumbcake base and then added three red flags and three green flags. A sentiment finishes off the card.

Retro Rubber Challenge #53...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge! This is our last one for 2016! I can’t believe the year is almost over! This challenge is a color inspiration based on the picture in the challenge image.

RRCB 53

I used a palette of cream and white with just a smidge of red and green thrown in. I started with some white texture paste and a snowfall stencil. I added the paste to the cream cardstock that I had run thru the linen impression plate and cut down a bit to go on the white card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 53 1 (575x640)

I stamped the sentiment (circa 2015) and then added a die cut set of holly leaves and berries on the edge. Finally, I popped the sentiment up over the card front. I love the simplicity of the card with all that neutral and small pop of color.
