Retro Rubber Challenge

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).

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

Retro Rubber Challenge 85...

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.

RRCB 85

I opted to use some vintage papers and stick with an antique color palate as well.  I cut several papers on the bias and then die cut them with a stitched rectangle.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 85 1 (560x640)

I added a sentiment from the Papertrey Ink choose me stamp set (2015) and a few pearls and was done!

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.

Retro Rubber Challenge 81...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We have a sketch for you to try out!

RRCB 81

I started with a scooter from the SU! On The Grow stamp set from 2011.  I used my chalks to color in the scooter and flowers.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 81 1 (563x640)

I die cut the image and then layered on a couple of die cut panels.  I added the sweet sentiment as who wouldn’t like a little happy mail of flowers!

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We are going crazy with dots and circles!

RRCB 80

I am feeling inspired by the Olympics!  I love the sportsmanship, the come from behind wins and watching sports I would normally never watch.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 80 1 (527x640)

My super CAS card is stamped with circles to form the Olympic symbol.  I am using my Clearly Besotted Sunburst stamps from 2015.  Then I added a fun sentiment and ran the card thru a dotty impression plate.

Retro Rubber Challenge #79...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  Use the beautiful picture for your inspiration and create a card.

RRCB 79

I opted to use the colors to inspire me.  I love the pink, gold and white combination.  So I started by die cutting this leaf pattern and backing it with gold paper.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 79 1 (528x640)

I added the sentiment and a few hearts before adhering to the card base.  My sentiment stamp is from the 2016 Clearly Besotted Message Me stamp set.

Retro Rubber Challenge #78...

It’s a new year and a new challenge at the Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge – white on white with the use of one neutral.

RRCB 78

I really struggled with this challenge until I finally came up with this beauty.  I used a quilted impression plate and a mini scallop rectangle to die cut this “quilt”.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 78 1 (566x640)

I added a sentiment and then popped the quilt up on the white card base.  My sentiment stamp is from the 2008 Papertrey Ink Quilters Sampler sentiments.  I love this card!

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!
