Retro Rubber Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge 95...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  For this challenge you can use the colors, the images, a school theme or a mix of them.

RRCB 95

I went with the school theme when I actually started out planning to use apples.  But I found the fun pattern paper and went with it.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 95 1 (582x640)

I backed some pattern paper with solid cardstock and adhered to the white card base.  Then I used the ABC image from the SU! bookcase builder stamp set from 2017 to stamp a background.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 95 2 (640x513)

I opted for a repeat pattern with different inks and then added some twine across the top.  Just a fun little fact, the surface that I use in my photos is actually an old school desktop complete with pencil tray and ink well (which you can't see).

Retro Rubber Challenge 93...

A new challenge at Retro Rubber begins today!  We have a fun tic tac toe challenge!

RRCB 93

I opted for the die cut/stripes/bird combo.  I started with a piece of perfect plum that I ran thru my stripes embossing folder.  Then I die cut a sweet little bird out of raspberry ripple.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 93 1 (583x640)

I stamped the sentiment (from PTI Summer Hills 2013) and then die cut with my stitched wonky dies.  I adhered the plum to the card base of crumbcake and then popped up the sentiment before adding some dots/pearls/rhinestones.

I went with my usual super clean and simple.  I stamped a sun from the SU! Over the Rainbow set (2015) and added some sweet sunglasses (SSS Flip Flop Season – 2015) to it. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 92 1 (568x640)

Retro Rubber Challenge #90...

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a photo inspiration so you can use either the colors or the items in the photo to create your card.

RRCB 90

I opted for the colors, creating a bit of a patriotic theme with some stars and stripes but using a sentiment that is distinctly not patriotic.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 90 1 (578x640)

I added a few papers from my stash to a base of rustic cream cardstock and then die cut with a double stitched die.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 90 2 (627x640)

I added the sentiment from the Papertrey Ink choose joy stamp set from 2015 and a sweet arrow from the Simon Says Stamp choose happy stamp set from 2016.  I popped the whole thing up on a base of kraft and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge #89...

We have a new challenge at Retro Rubber this week and I am playing along!  LOL!  I have missed the last two challenges due to my work schedule.

RRCB 89

I love a tic tac toe challenge and Jan Clothier put together a fun one.  I opted for a diagonal line of romantic occasions, pattern paper and gems.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 89 1 (588x640)

Keeping my card clean and simple, I die cut a piece of pattern paper and added a wedding sentiment from a 2015 Simon Says Stamp set.  A few enamel hearts later, and I popped the paper up on a card base of linen cream.

Retro Rubber Challenge #86...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!!  It’s a challenge all about flowers!  It is May after all!

RRCB 86
My mom requested a card for a friend of hers who was turning 90.  She wanted purple and the numbers in cork, I wanted flowers.  I started by die cutting the numbers in cork and die cutting a mini scallop stitched rectangle.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 86 1 (557x640)

I stamped the bleeding heart in purple and then added the sentiment and cork numbers.  The stamps are from Papertrey Ink’s Garden Gate (2016) and Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016).

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 86 2 (640x490)

I popped up the rectangle and added some dots and pearls to finish off the card.

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a vintage theme so be inspired by the challenge image and create something vintage looking.

Retro Rubber Challenge 84...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We have an inspiration challenge to use either the color or items from the image on a card.

RRCB 84

I trotted out my trusty umbrella die and whipped up three umbrellas using the inspiration colors.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 84 1 (540x640)

I added the sentiment from the SU! weather together stamp set from 2016.  I love the font and the saying so much.  And yet, it’s the first time I have used the saying!  Shame on me!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 84 2 (640x522)

I adhered everything to white and then to a crumbcake card base.

Retro Rubber Challenge 83...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We have an Anything Goes!

RRCB 83

I needed to make a birthday card for my mom.  It ended up being a bit more Christmasy feeling than I had intended but she loved it just the same!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 83 1 (552x640)

I started by using the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and cut some assorted panels out of patterned paper and adhered to a piece of cream cardstock.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 83 2 (640x536)

I added the sentiment from Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016), ran everything thru the linen impression plate and then popped the cream cardstock up on a base of cream.  I finished it off with a bit of bling and a sweet epoxy heart for my mama!

Retro Rubber Challenge 82...

Welcome to our new challenge at Retro Rubber!  For the first time ever, we are doing a tic tac toe challenge where you use three elements either across, down or diagonally.

RRCB 82

I opted for green, die cut and twine.  All lovely elements.  I was going to make a St. Patrick’s Day card but I don’t have a clover leaf die.  Also, it’s hard to feel too happy about clover leafs (or anything springy – lol) when we still have 3-4 feet of snow on the ground.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 82 1 (567x640)

So I switched it up and made a birthday card.  I started with several leaf die cuts that I stacked together.  They have a bit of coppery/gold on the edges as this is a die that I ruined with some paint and the remaining paint clings to my cardstock.  It did add a bit of shimmer.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 82 2 (610x640)

I added the twine and adhered to the card front that I ran thru the linen impression plate.  I added the sentiment (from my 2016 Clearly Besotted Message Me stamp set) and layered the card front on the card base.
