Retro Rubber Challenge 98...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a photo inspiration so use the colors, items or harvest theme for your card!


My card is super clean and simple.  I stamped a trio of squash and added a sweet sentiment. rrcb 98 1 (537x640)

I am using the Stampin’ Up! Gourd Goodness from 2017.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Message Me from 2016.  Finally, I ran the card thru my linen impression plate and was done. rrcb 98 2 (640x387)

Retro Rubber Challenge 97...

We are starting a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a tic tac toe courtesy of Jan Clothier.  I puzzled a bit on this one and finally went for the bottom row of animals, windows and circles.


I rolled the window and circles together by die cutting a stitched circle in the card front that I popped up on the card base. rrcb 97 1 (515x640)

Before adding the card front, however, I stamped this sweet puppy and colored with my pencils.  It is from the SU! Bella & Friends.  This stamp set came out in 2016 and I purchased it as soon as I saw it that year. rrcb 97 2 (640x500)

I added a bit of chalk around the image to ground the little guy and then stamped the sentiment on the card front.  I love the saying and always think of Toy Story when I see it.  And now I am humming the tune.

Autumn Flowers For HOC...

Welcome to the October House of Cards Challenge.  Use either the colors in the challenge image, autumn flowers or both.

October Autumn Flowers and or colors

As usual, I did a smidge of both.  I started with a sunflower that I stamped in daffodil delight and peekaboo peach.  I love the depth that I get from the peach ink. hoc oct 1 (597x640)

I added the leaves and the sentiment before drawing a line and dots in the opposite corner to balance the card.  Finally, I ran through the trusty linen impression plate. hoc oct 2 (640x465)
