Retro Rubber Challenge 99...

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s Anything Goes!

RRCB 99

I opted for a fall card!  I started by swishing some cajun craze ink on my card base and then added a polka dot tag die over the top.

I die cut a couple of leaves and added to the tag.  Finally I added a sentiment from my Papertrey Ink Autumn Hills stamp set from 2012.  A little twine finishes off the tag.

November Gold and Pearl Accents and or colors

I opted for a gold and white theme.  I started with three die cuts of wine glasses and a congratulations sentiment.

Something about gold makes me think of happy occasions and we are entering the holiday season so it seemed appropriate.

Retro Rubber Challenge 98...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a photo inspiration so use the colors, items or harvest theme for your card!

RRCB 98

My card is super clean and simple.  I stamped a trio of squash and added a sweet sentiment. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 98 1 (537x640)

I am using the Stampin’ Up! Gourd Goodness from 2017.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Message Me from 2016.  Finally, I ran the card thru my linen impression plate and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 97...

We are starting a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a tic tac toe courtesy of Jan Clothier.  I puzzled a bit on this one and finally went for the bottom row of animals, windows and circles.

RRCB 97

I rolled the window and circles together by die cutting a stitched circle in the card front that I popped up on the card base.

  Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 97 1 (515x640)

Before adding the card front, however, I stamped this sweet puppy and colored with my pencils.  It is from the SU! Bella & Friends.  This stamp set came out in 2016 and I purchased it as soon as I saw it that year.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 97 2 (640x500)

I added a bit of chalk around the image to ground the little guy and then stamped the sentiment on the card front.  I love the saying and always think of Toy Story when I see it.  And now I am humming the tune.

Autumn Flowers For HOC...

Welcome to the October House of Cards Challenge.  Use either the colors in the challenge image, autumn flowers or both.

October Autumn Flowers and or colors

As usual, I did a smidge of both.  I started with a sunflower that I stamped in daffodil delight and peekaboo peach.  I love the depth that I get from the peach ink.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc oct 1 (597x640)

I added the leaves and the sentiment before drawing a line and dots in the opposite corner to balance the card.  Finally, I ran through the trusty linen impression plate.

Retro Rubber Challenge 95...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  For this challenge you can use the colors, the images, a school theme or a mix of them.

RRCB 95

I went with the school theme when I actually started out planning to use apples.  But I found the fun pattern paper and went with it.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 95 1 (582x640)

I backed some pattern paper with solid cardstock and adhered to the white card base.  Then I used the ABC image from the SU! bookcase builder stamp set from 2017 to stamp a background.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 95 2 (640x513)

I opted for a repeat pattern with different inks and then added some twine across the top.  Just a fun little fact, the surface that I use in my photos is actually an old school desktop complete with pencil tray and ink well (which you can't see).

The Basics For AYSI...

We have a fun new challenge at As You See It!  This challenge is called back to basics – and it is what it says – paper, ink, and stamps.  That’s it!

#184 9.7.18

I love a great clean and simple card.  In my first holiday card of the season, I used green, red and black inks.  Can’t get any more clean and simple than that!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 184 1 (595x640)

I stamped the images in the bottom corner to leave all that lovely white space!  On which I would normally use my linen impression plate – but not today!

September House Of Cards...

Welcome to a new challenge at House of Cards!  As always, we have a fun challenge with making either a birthday card, using the colors or both.

September Birthday theme and or colors

My apologies to my teammates and to you for the late post today!  You know when you wake up in the middle of the night and wonder what day it is?  And then remember you were supposed to have a card made and a post up for today?  Yep!  That was me!  But better late than never!

Www.seejanestamp.com Sept HOC 1 (580x640)

I went for the birthday card with a bit of the colors thrown in.  I dug out some of my funky patterned paper and adhered to a base of white.

Www.seejanestamp.com Sept HOC 2 (640x352)

I accidently shorted the striped piece but I love the result – it adds a bit more something something to the card.  I added the sentiment and then ran the card through the linen impression plate.

Retro Rubber Challenge 93...

A new challenge at Retro Rubber begins today!  We have a fun tic tac toe challenge!

RRCB 93

I opted for the die cut/stripes/bird combo.  I started with a piece of perfect plum that I ran thru my stripes embossing folder.  Then I die cut a sweet little bird out of raspberry ripple.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 93 1 (583x640)

I stamped the sentiment (from PTI Summer Hills 2013) and then die cut with my stitched wonky dies.  I adhered the plum to the card base of crumbcake and then popped up the sentiment before adding some dots/pearls/rhinestones.

Patterns For House Of Cards...

The first day of August means it’s a new challenge at House of Cards.  The challenge for this month is to use pattern paper, the colors in the challenge image, or both.

August Patterned Paper and or colors

I opted to use pattern papers for this challenge.  I found some lovely coordinating papers and cut strips that I adhered to a base of lost lagoon.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc august 1 (530x640)

I debated about how to add a sentiment and finally landed on using a strip of cardstock and attaching it to the bottom of the card.  I feel like it gives a bit of weight to all of the patterns.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc august 2 (640x636)

A few rhinestones for some sparkle and I was done.
