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.


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. rrcb 85 1 (560x640)

I added a sentiment from the Papertrey Ink choose me stamp set (2015) and a few pearls and was done! rrcb 85 2 (640x491)

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.


I trotted out my trusty umbrella die and whipped up three umbrellas using the inspiration colors. 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! rrcb 84 2 (640x522)

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

Purples For AYSI...

#173 4.6.18

I opted to go with a monochromatic look and stayed with purple!  I stamped the background image with my SU! off the grid stamp. aysi 173 1 (546x640)

Then I die cut three Chandra stems and adhered them together but made sure they were a bit wonky when I put them together to add a bit of depth to them. aysi 173 2 (640x542)

I added a sentiment and some bling and was done!  Be sure to link up HERE to play along!

April House Of Cards...

I’m not fooling when I tell you it’s a new challenge at House of Cards!  The challenge is to either use florals in the corner or the colors or both.  Oh, and try to keep it clean and simple.  I am not sure how I did but I loved what I came up with!

April CAS Floral corner colors

I started with a base of early espresso that I ran thru the linen impression plate.  I added a couple of pieces of pattern paper that I backed with a bit of black. HOC April 1 (584x640)

I added this lovely sentiment and some pearls.  I did get some florals in the corner as well as some of the colors so I think I did pretty good! HOC April 2 (640x440)
