Retro Rubber Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge #77...

Welcome to the last Retro Rubber Challenge of 2017!  It’s a color inspiration challenge just in time for the holiday season.

RRCB 77

I went with clean and simple and opted to use the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 77 1 (640x483)

I stamped the tree from the PTI Layered Postmarks: Holiday (from 2012) in spring moss with the script in ripe avocado.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 77 2 (640x594)

I added the sentiment and then ran the card thru the linen impression plate.  I actually set out to make a layered card with an old truck and some trees.  That ended up in the garbage.  Sometimes the card in my mind is not what it is in reality!  LOL!

Retro Rubber Challenge #76...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s Anything Goes!

RRCB 76

I opted to go with a Christmas theme and dug out this cute nutcracker stamp from Simon Says Stamp’s Retro Christmas (2015).  I colored him in with colored pencils and then die cut the image.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 76 1 (501x640)

I added the sentiment (I do like to do sideways sentiments) and a bit of twine and a few dots.  A strip of striped paper backed with some old olive was the final touch before I layered everything on an early espresso card base.

Retro Rubber Challenge #75...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color inspiration and the challenge image provides a lot of color choices!

RRCB 75

I started with this image from Clearly Gina K Always Autumn from 2014.  I used my colored pencils before adding the sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s Keep It Simple Thanksgiving (2014).

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 75 1 (640x545)

Using the sketch from Paper Craft Crew, I added some white jute ribbon and a couple of pieces of cardstock – early espresso and crushed curry.  The early espresso with the chevron cut outs was one of the scraps that I found that went perfectly with the sketch and color challenge.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 75 2 (640x414)

I layered everything together and then added a few dots and pearls.

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

RRCB 74

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com 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.

Www.seejanestamp.com 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?

Retro Rubber Challenge 72...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  We have a fun travel themed challenge for you that requires you use a mode of transportation on your card.

RRCB 72

I immediately thought of my Simon Says Stamp Road Trip stamps that came out in 2014.  The station wagon took me back to when I was a kid and many a vacations that my family went on.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 72 1 (553x640)

I colored the wagon ala National Lampoon’s Vacation style before die cutting and popping up on the card front.  I stamped an outline of the US underneath the card front and die cut a circle to show off the outline.

Retro Rubber Challenge #70...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  This one has a back to school theme and let me tell you – it was a challenge for me!  I have very few school themed stamps!

RRCB 70

I did find a school image in my SU! Greeting Card Kids stamp set (circa 2011 or before).  I stamped the image on some schoolish paper and then colored with pencils.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 70 1 (585x640)

I added a sentiment from Paptertrey Ink (circa 2015) and then die cut the image using my SU! stitched and scalloped squares.

I loved the checkered cloth so I decided to use that as my background by using a stencil and some red ink.
