There is a new challenge at the Retro Rubber Blog! Check it out!

Hi and thanks for visiting my blog!  There is a new challenge over at the Retro Rubber Blog!  It is challenge 57, and involves using a stamp one year old or older, and the given theme.  The theme this time is a color challenge.  Too fun!  Here is the challenge graphic and the card that I created for this challenge:

I pulled out a stamp set I have had forever and never used!  I really love how the RR Blog gets me to use unused items!  The set is by Paper Smooches and is called Great Chemistry.  It has a date of 2011.  I also used the coordinating dies.

I found some patterned paper by Recollections (blue stripes) for the background.  I added a strip to a folded white invitation sized card.  I rounded the edges.  Using white cardstock I stamped and die cut the images.  I colored them with Copic Markers.  I took a piece of white cardstock, stamped the sentiment, and die cut it to create the framed edges.  I cut the inside block slightly smaller than the frame.

I added the images to the white block using dimensional adhesive.  Then I added the tied bow and sticky hearts from EK Success.  I adhered the frame and white block to the card.  Too fun!

It was so fun to create this card!  Won't you join us this time?  We would love to see your projects!  Then come back and visit the Retro Rubber Blog on the Sunday after the challenge ends to learn the challenge winner!  Best of luck!  


  1. Christine, this card made me so happy! I can only imagine how the recipient will respond when they are holding it in their hands! It is so stinkin' cute!! Perfectly detailed and wonderful use of the inspiration photo.

  2. Such an imaginative way to use the colours! I think your mad scientist set is wonderful and the wee red bow tie, a perfect finishing touch.

  3. Christine, like Debbie, every time I see this card I smile, love your crazy Scientist and great use of the inspiration colours. Cx

  4. Ohh!! I love the look of this Scientist holding that LOVE potion, LOL!! Fabulous way to use the challenge colors, this could be a super fun and adorable Valentine.

  5. Christine, what a fun scene you have created with your chemist! This card satisfies the whimsy in me... might have to check into other stamps such as this. Your bow tie was the perfect embellishment! Well done, teammie!!
