Retro Rubber Challenge #92...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We are all about summer for this challenge.


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. rrcb 92 1 (568x640)

I stamped a fun sentiment, ran the card thru my linen impression plate and added a few rhinestones. rrcb 92 2 (640x595)

Obsessing Over AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s time to confess what I am currently obsessed with.  Easy peasy…pattern paper.  I love to hoard it and think about using it.  LOL.

#181 7.27.18

I found some paper that looks like I cut strips and added together when in reality it was a piece of pattern paper already sorted into strips. aysi 181 1 (640x537)

I die cut a piece and then backed with lost lagoon.  I wrapped some cantaloupe twine around the cantaloupe base and then popped the pattern paper up on it. aysi 181 2 (640x410)

A sweet sentiment that nods to the travel theme in the paper finishes off the card.

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.


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. 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. 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.

I found a scrap of this fun pattern paper and decided to let it do all the talking.  So I die cut it using a stitched rectangle and popped it up on a base of crumbcake. july hoc 1 (591x640)
