Theme Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge 150...

It’s the first challenge of 2021 for Retro Rubber.  It is a winter theme because it’s winter!

RRCB 150

I don’t do a lot of layering on my cards but I went for it this week!  I die cut the geometric pattern in perfect plum and then added a vanilla cream stitched frame.  I used a stitched circle frame from wintery paper to add to all of the layers.

I stamped the winter berries image from Papertrey Ink Beautiful Berries – Winter from 2017 in distress inks in the purple and cream theme.  I die cut the image and popped it up on all of the frames.

Stitched Up For AYSI...

#235 9.25.20

I admit this one was a hard one for me!  I had to search through my stamps and dies pretty thoroughly but then I found these cute bobbin dies and voila – an idea was born!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 235 1 (584x640)

I die cut the bobbins and added the twine and thread.  Then I stamped the sentiment on the pattern paper (perfectly suited with the cross stitched images) and a bit on one of the bobbins.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 235 2 (640x319)

I added the bobbins and a few pearls and was done.  I love what I came up with!

When I was a kid, we would go camping in the mountains.  It never failed that where ever you put the sleeping bag, it was on a rock!  I prefer glamping (in a nice hotel) now!

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!

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)
