Retro Rubber Challenge 189...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge and celebrates colors of the 80s.  We need to use three of these colors – muted mauve, pink, blue, tan or gray.

RRCB 189

I opted to go with blue, pink and tan and created my own plaid design.  Once I had it done – I thought that is a lot of plaid!  So I cut down a piece and decided to show it off thru a chevron cut out die.

I ran the card base of Sahara sand thru the linen plate, added some pink ribbon and attached the chevron/plaid over it.  I finished off the card with a sentiment from my Papertrey Ink It’s The Thought stamp set from 2016.

Distressed For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a recipe challenge and are charged with using watercolor, floral stamps, bright colors, pattern paper and a punch/die.

#281 8.12.2022

I started by watercoloring a background of bright pink.  I then stamped a black daisy image on it.  It came out distressed looking so when life gives you lemons…I decided to embrace the distress!  I grabbed some kraft cardstock for the base and roughed up the edges a bit as well as die cutting the daisy image with my deckled edges die.  Using some granny apple green pattern paper, I die cut a stitched jumbo fishtail and attached to the card base.  I attempted to distress the edges a bit but the pattern paper is thin so I gave up quickly!

I had great debate about adding a sentiment.  By happy accident, I found one that had a bit of a distress to it which I didn’t notice at first.  I stamped the sentiment and started to panic!  I thought I had moved the sentiment and messed up the whole card – but – that is exactly the way the stamp is supposed to look – old fashioned typed lettering that is a bit off.  See, happy accident!  I popped up the daisy image then added a bit of black bling and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 188...

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

RRCB 188

I started by stamping this floral image from Altenew’s Fabulous You stamp set from 2017.  I colored with my alcohol markers before adding the floral paper and old olive strip.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 188 1

I die cut with my deckled edges rectangles and then adhered to a card base of old olive.  I added the sentiment (from the same stamp set) and a few dots and was done!

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a recipe challenge to use a die cut, embossing, twine or ribbon, pastels and thinking of you on a card.

#269 2.25.2022

I die cut a piece of pale papaya and some white card stock.  I ran the white card stock through the timeworn embossing folder and added the twine before attaching to the white card base.

Cloudy Rainbows...

I am playing along today with The Paper Players.  They had a tic tac toe challenge that I decided I couldn’t resist!

I chose the top row of rainbow, sparkle and die cut.  I decided to pull out some old dsp that seemed cheery and would give me bright colors to make a rainbow.

Www.seejanestamp.com pp 576 1s

I die cut the rainbow out of real red, daffodil delight and lemon lime twist.  I used crumbcake and the dsp to make the umbrella and then used a bit of real red to go with the horizontal stripe of dsp.

Www.seejanestamp.com pp 576 2s

I die cut some clouds and then put everything together and added the “raindrops” made of rhinestones for the sparkle.  I debated about the sentiment and thought I would go with a thinking of you.  We all need a little brightness to chase away the rain and clouds and see the rainbows!

A huge thank you to The Paper Players for being chosen as A Cut Above for THIS card and to The Card Concept for being chosen as Honorable Mention for the same card.  I was so surprised and honored!

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.
