Retro Rubber Challenge 179...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge and celebrates colors of the 60s.  We need to use three of these colors – bright orange, green, pink, purple or yellow.

RRCB 179

Both the sentiment and image are from Art Impressions Golden Oldies and are from 1996.  It’s hard to believe I have had them that long.  I stamped up the Eunice image and colored in with my alcohol markers.  I die cut around Eunice and a piece of granny apple green.

I stamped the sentiment and then cut a piece of pumpkin pie to back it.  I adhered everything to the crumbcake card base and added a bit of bling to finish off the card.

Staying Dry For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to stay dry. 

#271 3.25.2022

When I saw the challenge, I ordered this sweet house mouse stamp to use.  I also knew I was going to spend a lot of my time coloring.  So I did a bunch of dry runs by stamping and timing myself coloring.  I got it down to just over seven minutes for the image.  I did that by lining up the markers in order of use and keeping the caps off.  (I hope I didn't break the rules by doing that!)

I always keep a ton of white cardstock prepped and ready for card bases.  So I grabbed one of those and a stitched circle die cut that I have had in my scrap white paper for some time.

I had a scrap of pattern paper that I used to draw my colors from and just had to adhere and cut off the extra.  I looped some twine and added the image.  I was just pressing down on the sentiment when the bell rang so I considered that a win.  I only timed myself with the coloring so the rest was going to be up to chance and I got lucky enough to get the sentiment on, as I had saved that for last.

This was a fun challenge and really made me think up hacks to get a nice card done in the allotted time.

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s Anything Goes!

I actually started this card for another challenge and never used it so I dug it out and finished it off for this challenge.

I stamped a brushstroke of granny apple green and added a leaf vine in granny apple green as well.  I stamped the flower image in granny apple green, highland heather and gorgeous grape and then die cut.

I die cut the sentiment strip and then adhered everything together.  I added a few bits of bling for interest.  The stamps I used were all retro and from 2015 – PTI brushed off, choose joy and bitty bouquets.

Oopsie Daisy For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge for spring flowers. 

#270 3.11.2022

I love daisies and opted to stamp and die cut some orangish daisies.  Then I did a postage stamp square out of cork to pop the daisies on.

I die cut a stitched rectangle out of mango melody that I ran through both my linen impression plate and my tin type impression plate.  I stamped and popped up the sentiment, added some bling and was done!

Retro Rubber Challenge 177...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe challenge!  I opted for pattern paper/die cut/4X4.

RRCB 177

I cut down my pale papaya cardstock to 4 inches by 4 inches and ran through the linen impression plate.  I also die cut a white card front so that I can use as my background.  I die cut some pattern paper and adhered to the card front.

I stamped, colored and die cut the flowers and popped up on the card front after I had wrapped some twine and added the sentiment.  The sentiment is my retro stamp which is from Clearly Besotted 2015.
