Retro Rubber Challenge #30...

It’s time for a new Retro Rubber Challenge! It feels like forever since we have had one and it has only been a month! And it’s a sketch! Yay!


We have a couple of rule changes – you must state in your blog post the age of your stamp and you can link up to no more than 10 challenges. Pretty minor changes really more like clarifications!

Today’s card is made with a stamp that I love and rarely use. I love dandelions – the stamps only! I hate the real thing – other than when I was a kid and it was fun to blow the seeds everywhere. Like all kids everywhere. And like all parents everywhere – they hated when I did that. I can appreciate that sentiment now! rrcb 30 1 (546x640)

Anyway, I bought this stamp in 2008 (I had to google the date the stamp came out!) and have used it a few times. But when SU! came out with some paper that had dandelions on it, I knew I was going to have to have that paper! rrcb 30 2 (640x400)

I stamped the dandelions and sentiment according to the sketch and added some rainstones. I love this card! Fairly clean and simple – and could be massed produced easily to have a supply of get well cards on hand!

Now it’s your turn! Link up your sketchy creations HERE!

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to pop in tomorrow!

Supplies: CS: SU! crushed curry, white, basic black, and wildflower fields dsp. Stamps: Great Impressions dandelions and dandelions sentiment. Inks: SU! crushed curry. Memento black. Other: PTI linen impression plate and rainstones.

Hello Jane: This is a beautiful "get well" card, the recipient will instantly feel better just by looking at it. Those dandelion buds with their sweet seeds blowing in the wind are just beautiful.
I don't know about you, but I really love those "weeds", I think their deep yellow flowers are beautiful and the seeds are perfectly design to fly away.
A very sweet card, thank you for sharing.

Great get well card! I too enjoy dandelion stamps, and hate the real thing! But of course my background is about 5 acres which can easily become overrun by dandelions if we are not careful! The sentiment is perfect along with the dandelion paper!


Ohhh, wish I had that sentiment in my stash. I can come up with a dandelion image but guess I will need to use a computerized sentiment. Love the card and plan on CASEing it. Appreciate the share, team captain.... :)

By the way, my Dad used to pay my sisters and me 1 cent for each dandelion that we pulled, but it had to have roots attached, LOL....

Queen of CAS Jane..this is wonderful. I love the Dandelion stamps and paper and your colour combo - I am a big fan of yellow, black and white. Cx

OK, Jane, for you and all the dandelion haters out there, look up dandelion soup! The greens are loaded with vitamins!! (But don't ask me how it tastes - never eat the stuff. LOL Aren't we lucky that we don't eat weeds - yet?) Your card should say to try some so they will feel better. Or just look at the beautiful card you made them because that will make them feel so much better as well. I so love your CAS beauty and makes me happy looking at it as well as looking forward to warmer weather when dandelions grow.
