Retro Rubber Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge 119...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  We are all about fall colors and need to use red, orange and brown on our cards.

RRCB 119

I started by stenciling some fall leaves across my card in the required colors.  Then I added a bit of chocolate chip cardstock above and below the stencil to frame it in.

I die cut some leaves in red and orange, as well as one in dark yellow that I aged a bit using brown ink.  Finally I added the sentiment which is from the PTI keep it simple blessed sentiment set from 2017.

Retro Rubber Challenge 118...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  We have a fun sketch for you to try!

RRCB 118

I started with a doily stamp out of lemon lime twist ink and then added the sentiment.  These stamps are from Close To My Heart Love Doily and I have had since at least 2015.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 118 1 (539x640)

I die cut the card front and the lemon lime twist card stock using my MFT pierced squares.  Then I added the twine and a bow to take the place of a button!

Retro Rubber Challenge 116...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber and it is a delightful tic tac toe.

RRCB 116

I bounced around for a while before finally deciding which row I was going to tackle.  I ended up with the pattern paper/romance/enamel dots or gems.  I started with a card base of balmy blue and added this sweet piece of butterfly pattern paper.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 116 1 (564x640)

Then I die cut and embossed the arch using my inspiration impression plate right after I added the sentiment.  My apologies if the impression plate is hard to see – it is various inspirational words.  It did not photo well at all!  My sentiment comes from my PTI ways to say I love you from 2017.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 116 2 (640x442)

I popped up the arch and then added my rhinestones and dots.

Retro Rubber Challenge 115...

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a color challenge for purple, yellow and green!

RRCB 115

I started with a purple card base and a piece of purple pattern paper that I arranged on half of the white card front.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 115 1 (558x640)

I stamped the image using elegant eggplant, garden green and daffodil delight.  Then I snuck the sentiment in next to the stem.  I used my PTI bitty bouquets stamp set that I have had since 2015 and also used the PTI ways to say hello stamp set (2017) for the sentiment.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 115 2 (640x611)

Finally I ran the card front thru the linen impression plate and thru my MFT blue print stitched die before adding some twine and adhering to the card base.

The Double Trouble challenge requirements are:

  • Thing 2 – Double Dare:  Use a rubber or acrylic stamp older than one year.
  • Thing 3 – Twisted Sister:  If you create a beach scene with Santa you can earn an extra chance to be in Double Trouble’s random draw.

I stamped a branch and pinecones from my Papertrey Ink peaceful pinecones stamp set that I have had since 2012.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 114 1 (611x640)

Then I diecut a square around my image and backed it with a garden green scalloped square.  I popped the image up on the card base and added the sentiment around the square.  A few pearls finished it off!

Retro Rubber Challenge 113...

Welcome to our new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s anything goes!

RRCB 113
I started by stamping this image from PaperTrey Ink’s Fashion Sense stamp set from 2015.  I stamped the background in black and then added the dress in flirty flamingo.  I added the sentiment across the image itself which is a bit unusual for me.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 113 1 (598x640)

I added a strip of flirty flamingo beneath the white card front and some bling as well!

I opted to showcase one sweet button!  I started by stamping the image from the SU! On The Grow stamp set (circa 2011) and used chalks to color in the flowers.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 112 1 (571x640)

I layered the image up on several pattern papers and then added the sentiment and the button and ribbon.

Retro Rubber Challenge 111...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge

RRCB 111

Since it is a tic tac toe challenge I naturally went for the one layer card, birds and sponging.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 111 1 (543x640)

I started by using a leaf stencil and sponged peach parfait and peekaboo peach inks for the color.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 111 2 (640x535)

This beautiful bird stamp and a whimsical sentiment finished off the card.  Both the bird and sentiment came from the Close To My Heart Live Inspired stamp set that I have had for about seven years.

Retro Rubber Challenge 110...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber.  It’s all about flowers!

RRCB 110

I started with this beautiful mums stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps which I have had since 2016.  I stamped the first layer in chocolate chip ink and then added yellow, orange and red to the flower portion of the stamp.  I wasn’t sure what I would get – but it turned out really well.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 110 1 (582x640)

Then I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp’s Birthday Flowers from 2016.  Finally I added a couple of strips of crushed curry and die cut with a stitched die.
