Theme Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge 204...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to make a card that celebrates spring!

RRCB 204

I love spring flowers and opted to go with some tulips.  I stamped them using my Clearly Besotted Miniature Florals from 2015 and colored using alcohol markers.  I die cut using my deckled edges and then did a daffodil delight die cut to back the image.

I used crumb cake as my base and some daffodil delight seam binding for the ribbon.  My sentiment is from my often used Clearly Besotted Message Me from 2016.  We have secret pals at work so my pal will get this thank you card next month for all the goodies I have received over the past nine months.  I have been spoiled!

Retro Rubber Challenge 203...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to make a birthday card!

RRCB 203

I dug through my stash and stumbled across this old stamp set from Simon Says Stamp called Tag Sayings.  It is from 2013 and had some fun birthday themed stamps and tag dies.  Score!

I stamped the birthday sentiment and then die cut with the tag die.  I added some confetti type washi on the bottom of the tag and then cut two more out of poppy parade and pool party.

I added some twine to the tags and popped up on the soft stone card base.  Some little stamped balloons that I colored with alcohol inks finished off the card.

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s anything goes!

RRCB 202

I started with my Simon Says Stamp Many Thanks stamp set from 2015.  I stamped the first rose stamp randomly using pale papaya ink and then used grapefruit grove for the second layer.  I added the two tone leaves in soft sea foam and pear pizzazz.

I stamped the sentiment and die cut with my deckled edges as well as die cutting the card front.  I added some ribbon, popped up the sentiment and adhered to the card base.  I finished it off with some dots and rhinestones.

Spring Flowers Please...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge to use up our scrap stashes.

#294 3.10.23

This is not the card I started out to make.  I came across the tulips while looking for something else.  But I liked the idea of using the tulips so here we are.  We are knee deep in snow and expecting up to another foot in the next couple of days.  I need some spring flowers!

I stamped the spring sentiment and then popped up the tulips after adding a bit of twine.  I meant to add some bling but forgot.  It happens.

Retro Rubber Challenge 196...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for the die cut/pumpkins/stripes.

RRCB 196

I started by stenciling diagonal stripes with Sahara sand on white cardstock.  I die cut the stripes using my mini scallop stitched rectangles.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 196 1

I stamped the pumpkin in light pumpkin pie and then added the overlay stamp in a darker pumpkin pie.  I stamped the leaf and vine directly on the stripes and then popped up the pumpkin.  I added the sentiment and was done.  The stamps are from my Close To My Heart So Grateful stamp set that I have had for at least 10 years.
