Retro Rubber Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge 140...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber.  A fun tic tac toe.  I opted to use blue/rectangles/pattern paper.

RRCB 140

I started by digging out some dark blue pattern paper and die cut a rectangle.  Then using my SU! envelope dies, I die cut a pattern out of white and adhered over the pattern paper.

I added an additional strip of pattern paper behind the rectangle, added some bling and the sentiment from Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016).

Retro Rubber Challenge 139...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  We have an embellishment challenge to use buttons!

RRCB 139

I decided to make a tag.  I broke out my SU! French foliage stamps from around 2010 or so and inked them up in different colors.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 139 1 (526x640)

My tag was already die cut from a project I started to make years ago so I don’t remember what the name of the die is.  I added the sentiment (Clearly Besotted message me 2016), the ribbon and the buttons and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 137...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We are partnering with the Double Trouble Challenge so you can play along with both!

RRCB 137

We have a sketch challenge on which you must use at least one stamp older than a year.  The requirements for the Double Trouble Challenge are:

  • Thing 1 – Trouble Maker: 3-2-1 Recipe: 3 colors – 2 embellishments – 1 old stamp
  • Thing 3 – Twisted Sister: Follow our RRCB sketch with at least one angular shape.
  • Thing 2 – Double Dare (Optional): If you used the RRCB sketch and the 3-2-1 Recipe be sure to link your card Double Trouble’s challenge to receive an additional chance to be in Double Trouble’s random draw.

I started with a soft green polka dot panel and added a hexagon shape instead of the triangle.  I used my Rubbernecker Summer Meadow stamps that I have had for several years and colored them using some distress inks. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 137 1 (570x640)

I added a piece of summer starfruit paper to add a little pop and then added the sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp You Got This – 2017) and embellishments.  I followed our sketch and Thing 1 and 3 for the Double Trouble Challenge.

Retro Rubber Challenge 136...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber and we are all about the summer!

RRCB 136

As I was getting ready to make my card, I noticed a couple of my teamies used flip flops and had the same sentiment so I made it a trio because I couldn’t resist!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 136 1 (529x640)

I started by chalking a sun on the card base.  Then I die cut the flip flops and sunglasses out of fun colored paper and adhered to the card.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 136 2 (640x425)

Finally I added the sentiment (from my PTI flipping out stamp set from 2012) and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 135...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a fun tic tac toe so let’s get to it!

RRCB 135

I chose to go with ribbon, emboss, birthday.  I started by stamping some balloons in soft colors.  Then I added the sentiment and some balloon strings.  The stamps came from two different sets of stamps (SSS big birthday wishes – 2015 and Paper Smooches sentiment sampler) that I have had for more than five or six years. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 135 1 (549x640)

Then I embossed the white card stock (with my linen plate) and added an embossed strip of X's under the sentiment before adding my pool party ribbon.

Retro Rubber Challenge 132...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  For this challenge we are all about squares!

RRCB 132

I started by cutting three 3X3 cards out of cream cardstock and using just a simple small image on them.  These came from my Stampin’ Up! Postage Collection stamp set from around 2013.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 132 5 (640x611)

Then I added some lines to make a square on the card and added a different sentiment on each card as well.  These are from my 2016 Clearly Besotted Message Me stamp set.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 131 1 (572x640)

Uber CAS!  The sentiment was from my Clearly Besotted Message Me set from 2016.  It is truly a go to stamp set for me!

Retro Rubber Challenge 130...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a fun sketch so here we go!

RRCB 130

I started by finding the sentiment and then built my card around that.  I used stamps from my PTI Summer Camp stamp set from 2012.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 130 1 (568x640)

I stamped the sentiment and then added the three images below it.  I ran the card thru the linen plate and was done.  I think this is a really intriguing sentiment and am glad I finally used it!
