Retro Rubber Challenge 157...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  This one is a sketch which I love!

RRCB 157

I started by stamping the flowers in calypso coral and pear pizzazz.  The image is from the Papertrey Ink Flower Favorites stamp set from 2015.  I also stamped the sentiment which is from My Favorite Things Delicate Pretty Poppies from 2016.

I backed the images with a piece of calypso coral cardstock and then distressed the edges a bit.  I added a piece of coral, doily and button to complete the sketch.

Green for me.  It’s one of my favorite colors so I used five different green colors and used an impression plate to add a wedding ring pattern.

This is supposed to look like a quilt as when I think cozy, I think of grabbing my favorite quilt!  I added the sweet sentiment and some bling and was done.

I stamped the sentiment using my W+ 9 hand lettered hello stamp set from 2014.  I attached some buttons and I was good to go.  I liked this sketch, it felt a bit hard but I liked stretching my imagination!

Retro Rubber Challenge 146...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  This time around we want you to use black, orange and white on a card.

RRCB 146

Because it’s October and with these colors, I would normally make a Halloween card but I just wasn’t feeling it.  Instead I opted to make a sweet romantic card.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 146 1 (640x538)

I started by adding some plaid paper to my white card base and then adding a strip of pumpkin pie and a curvy piece of black.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 146 2 (640x364)

I stamped the image and sentiment (both from Papertrey Ink Fancy Footwork 2013) and was done.

I ran both the card front and card base through my linen plate.  I die cut the card front and layered on the card base after I added a strip of butterfly paper.  I beat the clock by 40 seconds!
