Retro Rubber Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge 114...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We are partnering with the Double Trouble Challenge.  Yay!

RRCB 114

Our theme is Christmas in July so all you have to do for our challenge is to make a Christmas card using at least one stamp older than a year.

The Double Trouble challenge requirements are:

  • Thing 1 – Double Trouble:  Make a square card, scrapbook page, gift box or use squares on your project.
  • 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.

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!

Retro Rubber Challenge 112...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We have an embellishment challenge for you to use buttons or bows or both on your card!

RRCB 112

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.

Supplies:  CS:  PTI rustic white.  Inks:  SU! peach parfait and peekaboo peach.  Dies/Stencils:  SSS screened leaves stencil.  PTI linen impression plate.


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.

Retro Rubber Challenge 109...

It’s Anything Goes at Retro Rubber

RRCB 109

I started with a funky die cut rectangle out of some musical paper.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 109 1 (584x640)

Then I flagged a couple of scraps of paper and popped them up after adding my sentiment.  I thought it appropriate given my paper!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 109 2 (640x507)

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Message Me from 2016.  A little bling finishes the card!

Retro Rubber Challenge 108...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  The challenge requires you to either use a rainbow or rainbow colors on your card.

RRCB 108

I went clean and simple (natch!) and created a rainbow with words.  I used my nifty Papertrey Ink Be set which I have had since 2016 and started stamping!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 108 1 (563x640)

Each word is stamped in a color of the rainbow and are all things we should strive to be – right?

Retro Rubber Challenge 107...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber and it’s one of my favorites!  Tic Tac Toe!  I am loving those more and more!

RRCB 107

I opted for the top row of dies/sparkle/stars.  I die cut several stitched stars out of blueberry bushel, pineapple punch and granny apple green.  A weird combo of food themed paper names!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 107 1 (575x640)

I added the sentiment from my PTI belated birthday sentiments from 2015.  I ran everything through the linen impression plate and then added the bling.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 107 2 (640x337)

I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch.

Retro Rubber Challenge 106...

A new challenge is afoot at Retro Rubber!  It is time to earn your stripes and use them on a card.

RRCB 106

This card did not turn out anything like when I started.  I was going to stamp the stripes and then ended up with pattern paper instead.  You just have to go with the flow!  I started by die cutting two stitched ovals and stamping the sentiment using my W+9 Strictly Sentiments stamp set from 2013. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 106 1 (541x640)

Then I flagged the ends of the striped paper (it pays to save scraps!), added some gold thread and then adhered everything together.  Finally, I popped up the sentiment and added some gold stars.

Retro Rubber Challenge 105...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber and we have a surprise for you!  We are partnering with Try Stampin’ on Tuesday!  We are using their sketch and pairing it with our requirement to use stamps older than a year.  This is double the fun! You can link up your entry with both challenges. 

RRCB 105

I love a good sketch and this was a fun one!  I pulled out my W+9 Punny Produce: Peaches from 2014 and set to work.  I stamped the peach in black, peach parfait and pear pizzazz before die cutting the mini scalloped square.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 105 1 (524x640)

Using my flag dies from Reverse Confetti, I die cut flags in some plaid and solid paper and stapled them together instead of running the flags across the top.  Then I popped up the mini square and added the sentiment!
