Tuesday, December 7, 2021

Hello everyone!

I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge blog and we have a new challenge, which is an inspirational photo.  I love this inspirational challenge and I love the card I created for your inspiration.  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.

Here is my card for your inspiration. I am using Colorado Craft Company Stamp set called Pine Branch and Pinecones. The stamp set was released in November of 2019. 
  • Created aa A2 card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • I stamped the image from the Colorado Craft Company Stamp set Pine Branch and Pinecones onto some wooden paper from my stash.  I colored the branches and stamped the image again onto some white card stock.  I colored the pinecones and then fuzzy cut them out and paper pieced the pinecones on the wooden background.  
  • Stamped the sentiment from the Pine Branch and Pinecones stamp set.
  • Added some white splatter onto the card.
  • Finished the card off by adding red sequins.
