Hello everyone!

I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge blog and we have a new challenge which all about circles....use circle stamps, circle shapes and or paper on your card. Be sure to stop over on the Retro Rubber Challenge blog to get more inspiration, the design team has some wonderful creations!

The rules to play along with Retro Rubber Challenge is very simple, make sure the stamp you use on your project is at least one year or older. For more details on the rules, you can find them over on Retro Rubber Challenge blog.


This is such a fun challenge, the background stamp I used is one of my favorite stamp sets.  The stamp set is by Hero Arts called "Circle Pattern Bold Prints" which was released in January 2020.  The "rainbow" die set and sentiment is from Waffle Flowers called Oversize Rainbow Stamp Set, which was released June 2021.  


Here is how I put the card together:
  • Created an A2 card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
  • Stamp the background "Circle Pattern Bold Prints" with black ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  
  • Ink blend rainbow colors within the circles using Gina K. Designs 
  •  Die cut the Layers Using Gina K. Designs Master Layouts 1.
  • Stamped the sentiment with versamark and added white embossing powder and heat embossed.
  • Die cut the sentiment with a sentiment strip.
  • Assembled the card.

My first card I used the "Grand Gentlemen Stamp Setand dies illustrated by Beth Silaika. This set is a great set for all the special men in your life!  There are lots of sentiments and coordinating sayings for any occasion too.  I just couldn't help myself, I had to make a rainbow card out of the ties!

Here is how I created the card:
  • Card is a slimline card, measuring  6"x 3 1/4" (6"x 6 1/2", scored at 3 1/4" on the 6 1/2" side).
  • Used the Master Layout 7 to cut the layers.
