Retro Rubber Challenge Blog - Color Challenge

Tuesday, December 6, 2016



Hello everyone!

Can you believe it is almost Christmas?  Are you all ready?  I know I am not.  I am here with another fun challenge with Retro Rubber's Challenge Blog, which is a photo color inspirational challenge.  To join the challenge, simply use a stamp one year old or older and the theme below. It's so much fun to join Retro Rubber's challenges. Don't forget to stop by the blog and see all the other design teams creations. 


Here is my card.....

I am using an old stamp I had in my stash, it is a stamp by Hero Arts which is a 3x4 wooden stamp called Joy Burst.  I believe it was released around December 2014.  There are so many different things you could create with this stamp.  I embossed the image with red embossing powder and then stamped the image again on some design paper and fuzzy cut it out and adhered it to my image.  I love the green and red colors together.  

I hope you have been inspired by my card to join the challenge. You have until December 16th to hop on over to Retro Rubber to join the challenge. Remember to use a stamp over a year old and make sure you tell us how old it is. I cannot wait to see your creation! For more inspiration, please stop over at Retro Rubber to see what the design team members have created!

Hello everyone!

I am here with the Christmas Challenge Blog and this is my first post as a design team member.  I am so excited about the opportunity to work with such talented people and who can resist wanting to create Christmas cards all year long!  The challenge for this week is a word prompt "Candy Cane".


Here is my card....

I couldn't resist using this cute House Mouse stamp by Stampendous called Candy Cane Kiss.  I had to dig this one out, and ink it up.  I love House Mouse stamps, they are so easy to color and the images are adorable.  I colored the image with copics, added my sentiment and finished my card off by adding some enamel dots.


Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you will join the challenge.  Also, stop over at the Christmas Challenge blog and see all the creations created by the talented Design Team members!

So Suzy December Guest Designer - Snowflake Tree

Hello everyone!

I am so excited about being asked to be a guest designer for the month of December for So Suzy Stamps.  I am a fan of their stamps!  So Suzy is having an 'End of the Year Party" and she will be offering free shipping December 1st through the 15th!  You can also win free shipping for the whole year in 2017.  Details are on her blog!

So onto my card, I am using the newly released Snowflake Tree.  I decided to use the technique "triple time stamping". The black layers measures:  2-1/4" x 3-1/2", 3-1/4" x 4-1/2", 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (score at 4 1/4), the silver layers measure:  2" x 3-1/4", 3" x 4-1/4" and 4" x 5-1/4".  I then stamped the image with versamark and the three layered black cardstock, and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.  I then added the silver layers to the card.  So easy!  


Thank you so much for stopping by, what do you think?  I would love to hear from you.  Also, please stop over at So Suzy Stamps to see other projects created by the talented Design Team with this stamp. There are some great creations.
