Retro Rubber Challenge 189...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge and celebrates colors of the 80s.  We need to use three of these colors – muted mauve, pink, blue, tan or gray.

RRCB 189

I opted to go with blue, pink and tan and created my own plaid design.  Once I had it done – I thought that is a lot of plaid!  So I cut down a piece and decided to show it off thru a chevron cut out die. rrcb 189 1

I ran the card base of Sahara sand thru the linen plate, added some pink ribbon and attached the chevron/plaid over it.  I finished off the card with a sentiment from my Papertrey Ink It’s The Thought stamp set from 2016. rrcb 189 2

Distressed For AYSI...

I started by watercoloring a background of bright pink.  I then stamped a black daisy image on it.  It came out distressed looking so when life gives you lemons…I decided to embrace the distress!  I grabbed some kraft cardstock for the base and roughed up the edges a bit as well as die cutting the daisy image with my deckled edges die.  Using some granny apple green pattern paper, I die cut a stitched jumbo fishtail and attached to the card base.  I attempted to distress the edges a bit but the pattern paper is thin so I gave up quickly! aysi 281 1

I had great debate about adding a sentiment.  By happy accident, I found one that had a bit of a distress to it which I didn’t notice at first.  I stamped the sentiment and started to panic!  I thought I had moved the sentiment and messed up the whole card – but – that is exactly the way the stamp is supposed to look – old fashioned typed lettering that is a bit off.  See, happy accident!  I popped up the daisy image then added a bit of black bling and was done. aysi 281 2

Retro Rubber Challenge 188...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s anything goes!

RRCB 188

I started by stamping this floral image from Altenew’s Fabulous You stamp set from 2017.  I colored with my alcohol markers before adding the floral paper and old olive strip. rrcb 188 1

I die cut with my deckled edges rectangles and then adhered to a card base of old olive.  I added the sentiment (from the same stamp set) and a few dots and was done! rrcb 188 2
