Challenge 32 over at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog! Too fun!

It is time for challenge number 32 at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog!  The theme of this challenge is "winter".  Simply use a stamp one year old or older and create a project using the "winter" theme.  Come join us!

For this challenge, I created the following card.

And here is a copy of the challenge graphic:

To create my card, I formed kraft cardstock into a card shape.  The, using a stitched square die, I cut out the top center part of the card front.  I took patterned paper from American Crafts and using the same die, cut a piece to put in the "hole" of the card front.  I love the addition the stitching makes to the card! 

Then I placed a matching piece of trimmed cardstock on the lower card section, with the lower corner trimmed with my EK Success corner rounder.  Next, I stamped the Yeti (Lawn Fawn 2012 Yeti, Set, Go stamp set) on white cardstock and colored him with markers from Copic, R46, E31, E15, B00 and W1.  I trimmed him by hand and adhered him to the card using dimensional adhesive.  Next, I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock (same stamp set) and trimmed it. I colored the heart using Copic R46.  Then, I colored a piece of white paper with B00, and trimmed it as well.  I placed the sentiment on dimensional adhesive on the card front and the blue strip adhered with flat adhesive.  Finally, I added a snowflake embellishment and a heart (EK Success).  As a final touch I added clear Wink of Stella to the Yeti.

Thanks for looking!  Can't wait to see your creations!  Then please join us a week from this Sunday again over at the Retro Rubber Blog to learn the winner of this challenge!


  1. Christine, what a fun snow card! Your Yeti is having a great time being the focal point. Really liked how you stitched die cut both the kraft and designer paper... that coordination looks fantastic. Guess I need to resign myself to buying Copics... love your coloring!!

  2. Christine, I love your card..I am head over heels in love with the Yeti stamp, seeing you use him increases my love of him even more (I suspect I overuse him) I really like the patterned paper here, very wintry. Cx

  3. Ok Christine, if I encounter a Yeti that looks like this one, I would run and hug him, this little guy is adorable!!!
    From my view here, that craft card stock looks GOLDEN!! Love the pretty paper with those tiny snowflakes.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Big Hugs,

  4. I think your Yeti is adorable and about ready to plop into the snow to make a "snow-yeti" LOL What a perfectly wonderful winter card!!

  5. Yeti! Love! He reminds me of the Abominable Snow Monster from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. A must watch for me still today. Love Yukon Cornelius. But I digress...Adorable!!

  6. Christine, love your Yeti!!!! I love the gold tone paper you used with the snowflakes. Just adorable.
