July 4th

Retro Rubber Challenge #41...

Welcome to a new challenge at the Retro Rubber Challenge! This time we have a color challenge – just in time for the fourth of July or really any reason to use red, white and blue!


I started by die cutting a couple of fishtail banners – one in real red and one in some star paper. I am following the Fab Friday sketch and think this card turned out rather niftily.

I added a bit of striped paper on either side of the banners and a bit of twine and a star to finish off the card. I slipped the sentiment in at the last minute (because I realized that I had NO stamping on this card!) on the star banner where it fits perfectly.  (The stamp is about 3 or 4 years old).

Retro Rubber Challenge #17...

Welcome to the Retro Rubber Challenge #17!  This challenge is a patriotic challenge – so dig out your red, white and blue and get to work!  Here is all you need to do to enter – use stamps older than a year AND add either sparkles or use fourth of July themed stuff (or both if you would like!)!!

My card is very CAS.  I started with a few stripes of red and blue.  I stamped the sentiment, die cut it using my zigzag dies and popped it up on the card front.  A bit of sparkle and I was done!

Now for my confession – I used a stamp set that is less than a year old!  Yipes!  It is a good thing that I am not entering this challenge!  I used the stripe from the newish SU! butterfly basics set!  What was I thinking?  My apologies to you all!  I made this card a couple of weeks ago and realized my mistake as I was writing up my post!  Too late!
