Retro Rubber Challenge Blog Challenge 31 is live!

Please come join the challenge over at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog!  This time, the challenge involves using a stamp one year old or older, and Valentine's colors!  You can make a card, home décor item, scrapbook page or  more!

Here is the challenge graphic and the card I created for this challenge:

This card was so quick and basic!  I used white, cream and pink cardstock, a rectangular die, a Copic Marker, clear Wink of Stella, a stamp from Stampin' Up, some dimensional and flat adhesives, a small piece of patterned paper, and a corner rounder.

I stamped the image on cardstock in black ink, trimmed it, then colored with the marker.  I added dimensional adhesive to the rear, then mounted it on the cream paper.  Next, I created a folded card using the white paper, and die cut the front side.  Inside I placed the cream paper with image.  I added some pink cardstock to the inside of  the card, and the trimmed patterned paper.  So easy!  So quick!

I would love to see what you create so please join this challenge!  Then join us back a week from Sunday over at the Retro Rubber Blog to learn the challenge winner!
