Retro Rubber Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge 230...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to make a card with a nautical theme.

RRCB 230

I started out by embossing a piece of night of navy with my twisted rope embossing folder.  I die cut it down with a stitched die and then added a piece of twine before adhering to the kraft card base.

I stamped and die cut the anchor image and also the sentiment.  These are from my Papertrey Ink Seas of Life stamp set from 2021.  Clean and simple.

RRCB 228

I started by stamping and die cutting the branch of spring berries.  It is from my Papertrey Ink Spring Beautiful Berries from 2017.  I also die cut a postage stamp from white to pop the berries on.

The layer behind the sketch is aluminum dryer tape.  I learned this trick a long time ago and yet I rarely use it.  It adds shine and its tape!  I ran the tape thru my linen plate for some texture and then attached to the flirty flamingo card base.  I added the sentiment (Clearly Besotted Message Me 2016) and was done.

I opted for a clean and simple masculine birthday card.  I die cut a piece of boho blue and crumbcake with my shiplap die.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 227 1

I stamped the image from my SU! Artistically Asian stamp set (from around 2016) onto white, then adhered my shiplap pieces and stamped the image again.  I finished the card with the birthday sentiment from Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016).

Retro Rubber Challenge 226...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to make a card with spring flowers.

RRCB 226

I dug out my Papertrey Ink Flower Favorites from 2015 and inked up the iris image.  I used some distress inks so that I could spritz them with water to make a watercolor image.  I didn’t set out to have the splatter background – but one iris image with too much pressure and ink went flying.

I added the sentiment and then used my deckled edges to cut the card front and the gorgeous grape background.  I added some linen thread and then adhered to my pear pizzazz base.

I went clean and simple with a love card.  I stamped and die cut a pink boxwood heart and then stamped the love over the image as well as the card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 224 1

I popped the heart up to add a bit of interest and finished off with some heart dots.  The stamps were all from The Greetery – Mini Boxwood Heart and Love is (2021).

RRCB 223

I really struggled with this challenge because I just couldn’t come up with something that I really liked.  In the end, I played around with some collage stamping which is a go to for me. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 223 1

I used the required colors with my Stampin’ Up! French Foliage (2011) and Artfully Layered (2022) and my Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016).  I die cut using a postage die cut, popped it up and was done!

I started out by stamping and die cutting the bench, pillows, blanket, book and cup.  I used my Papertrey Ink Winter Bench stamp set from 2022.  I opted for some bright colors cause we all need a little bright in the winter!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 222 1

I stamped the sentiment (Papertrey Ink Winter Hills (2012) and then adhered all the bits and pieces to the card front.  I couldn’t resist adding the sweet heart button as a last minute touch.

Retro Rubber Challenge 221...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s an inspiration challenge to let the image inspire your card.

RRCB 221

I started by running some white cardstock through my merry melody impression folder and then die cutting into a stitched rectangle.  I also die cut two boughs, intertwined them and adhered to the card front.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 221 1

I die cut silver bells, popped up on the boughs and then added the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Lil Inkers No Peeking from at least 10 years ago because I have had it that long!  I die cut around the sentiment and added some twine.  I finished off with some red rhinestones.

Retro Rubber Challenge 220...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for frame, snowman and trees.

RRCB 220

I started by die cutting a window frame on the front of the card.  Then I opted to do something a bit different for me by creating the scene on the inside of the card.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 220 1

I stamped the fence and swag before adding and popping up the die cut tree and snowman.  These images are from my Papertrey Ink Fence Line Winter stamp set from 2018.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 220 2

I added the sentiment (PTI Cozy Christmas 2016) and was done.  I like that the surprise is on the inside of the card!
