I started with these cute poppies from My Favorite Things that came out in 2015.  The outline was stamped first then I added the fill in color using second generation stamping.

I stamped the sentiment then ran it thru the linen impression plate and the mini scallop rectangle die. I added the linen thread and pearls/dots before popping up the card front on a crumbcake base.

I started by running some watercolor paper thru my sheet music impression plate and then adding a few colors for a rainbow effect.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 61 3 (563x640)

Then I punched some bitty butterflies in other rainbow colors and adhered them to the watercolor paper to give the full effect of a rainbow.

I added the sentiment and attached everything according to the sketch from the Fusion Challenge which also inspired the butterflies and music!

Retro Rubber Challenge #61...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge! Just use buttons on your card and a stamp older than a year and you are good to go!

I started with my PTI Fancy Footworks stamp set from 2013. This was a stamp set that I had to have when it came out because I loved the dance steps.  So I stamped the “her” steps in harvest gold and the “his” steps in blueberry sky. I ran the card front and the card base thru the linen impression plate as well.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 61 1 (552x640)

I stamped the sentiment and cut out using my washi tape die. I also die cut a couple more washi tapes in yellow and blue so I could layer them up.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 61 2 (640x425)

I layered the front over some crushed curry and then put everything together on a base of midnight muse. Be sure to play along with us and link up HERE!

I am entering this card in the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

A huge thank you to Nance at Paper Players for selecting THIS card as A Cut Above!

On a personal note, my life outside of card making (not that we like to admit we have one *wink*) has gotten a bit more hectic than I expected so I am rolling back the number of posts that I typically do each week. I hope to post 2-3 times a week but it may be down to once a week for a while. Thank you for understanding!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies: CS: SU! white, crushed curry and midnight muse. Stamps: PTI fancy footworks. Inks: Memento black. PTI blueberry sky and harvest gold. Dies: PTI linen impression plate. MFT washi tape. Other: SU! buttons. Twine.

I dug around in my stamp stash and found this old SU! stamp set Love Bug that has been around since before 2009. I stamped and colored the image before die cutting a stitched circle and then a scalloped circle out of crisp cantaloupe.

This was actually more of a challenge than I thought! I dug deep and used my SU! Barnyard Babies stamp set that came out in 2015.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 60 1 (549x640)

I stamped the lamb and a little chick and colored with my pencils and some chalk. I added a sentiment and a few pearls and a candy dot. I added a bit of pattern paper as well to be able to play along with the sketch challenge at Fab Friday.

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.

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!
