Retro Rubber Challenge Blog #82 - Tic Tac Toe

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

Hello everyone,

I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge Blog and we have a new challenge, which is a theme "Tic Tac Toe"!   Doesn't this sound like a fun challenge. I am using an oldie but goodie Stampin Up retired set called "Another Thank You", this set was released in August of 2013.   

If you have not joined our challenges before, the rules are very simple, just use a stamp older than a year and you must include the age (or approximate age) of the stamp in your blog post.

Here is my take on the tic tac toe challenge:

My card is clean and simple!  I cut a piece of card stock 4 x 5 1/4 and embossed it with an embossing folder from Stampin Up called Polka Dot Textured, I stamped the thank you with Memento Black ink and die cut it and framed it with black card stock.  To finish the card off, i added some sequins.

Are you ready to play along? Be sure to stop over on the Retro Rubber Challenge blog to get more inspiration, the design team has some wonderful creations! Thank you for stopping by, you have until March 9th to join the fun!

Joy Clair and Misti - Everyday Cards

Thursday, March 8, 2018


Hello everyone!

Today My Sweet Petunia and Joy Clair's design teams are sharing projects featuring the MISTI as well as many of the fantastic products from Joy Clair! Please be sure to stop over to Joy Clair's Blog to see all the wonderful projects the team has created using the MISTI.

I have two projects to share today, using the Joy Clair stamp set called "Get Well" and "New Baby".  These two sets are from the Everyday line of stamps.  These are very versatile and could be used together if you wanted.  

For my first card, I am using the original MISTI which is 8x10.  For more information on this MISTI, you can go to the Misti store.  I stamped all my elements with Black Memento, cut them out using my Brother Scan & Cut and colored them with copics.  I stenciled the background piece of card stock, then die cut the next layer, created the cloud background and added my elements.  I added some NUVO black drops on the cat's eye.

Here is a closer look at the card.

Here I am using the large bar magnet to hold my card stock down while I stamp the sentiment.

After I stamped the sentiment, I layed my elements where I wanted them to be and added the flying birds.  

My second card, I am using the Everyday stamp set by Joy Clair called "New Baby".  This is an adorable stamp set, there are so many possibilities.  I stamped the shirt on some design card stock using the MISTI and I fuzzy cut it out with scissors.  I then embossed the background with an embossing folder, added a couple of layers and added my elements to the card.

Closer look of the card.

I am using the Mini MISTI for this project.  If I only have to stamp small sentiments, I use the Mini MISTI.  I stamped the sentiment I used on my card and the giraffe.  

I used a die to cut the sentiment and fuzzy cut the giraffe, colored it with copics and added it to the onesies.  

Please follow Joy Clair's facebook page, Color by Faith Bible Journaling facebook page, Instagram and Twitter, be the first to hear the news, sales and giveaways! They also have a Pinterest page and Youtube channel for your inspiration!

Monthly Mix Challenge: Black and White with a Twist - MMC32018

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

Hello everyone!

I'm playing along with the March Monthly Mix Challenge over at StampTV.  My design team mate Sheri Gilson is this month's hostess and her challenge is called, "Black and White with a Twist!". If you follow Sheri, you know she is a big fan of black and white cards and makes the nicest bows on her cards.  I love her style and her designs.  All the challenge details can be found HERE.

Here is my take on the challenge.  My twist color is the new Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils™ Dazzling Orange.  This has to be my favorite color of all the foils, but I say that about everyone!  All of the foils are so beautiful and I can't get enough of using them.  The butterfly is from the newly released  
StampnFoil™ Foil-Mates Detail Sheet Butterfly.   I  die cut the butterfly with the Gina K. Designs Butterfly Kisses Die and then foiled the butterfly with the Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils™ Dazzling Orange.  The sentiment is from the Gina K. Designs Stamp n Foil™ Clear Stamps Butterfly Kisses.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you will take the time to play along with the challange, you have the chance to win a $75.00 gift card to the Gina K. Designs store!
