Loving this new challenge from the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog!

It is time for a new crafty challenge over at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog!  Simply use a stamp one year old or older (be sure to let us know the age) and the challenge graphic image, below!  Too fun!

I used the graphic to make my card above.  I took a white card, precut and scored, invitation size, and added patterned paper from My Favorite Things and Ms. Sparkle & Co..  Next, I took a stamp set, a newer one from 2017, from Create a Smile, and stamped the sentiment in bold black ink, archival ink, and trimmed it to fit the front of the card.  I added this element to the card front using foam adhesive.

Next, I used an older stamp, a flower, from Prima Co., dated 2015.  I stamped it onto white card stock using deep black archival ink, then fussy cut the image.  I placed it on the card behind the sentiment, using a thinner foam adhesive.  Finally, I added red gems about.

I think this is one of my favorite cards that I have ever created!  I had fun, join us and you will too! Then stop back by the Retro Rubber Blog the Sunday after the challenge ends to learn the challenge winner!  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Christine, your card brings a smile to my face! I love the fussy cut flower peeking over the sentiment panel and the huge sentiment (SU started providing us with large sentiments also!). I think this would be one of my favorites also!!

  2. Christine, I am SO sad we didn't get to meet on your last trip. As you know it was a tough week for me. We are Gingham twins this time. Love your card, that big bold sentiment is amazeballs! Cx

  3. Such a pretty card, Christine! I love the country feel that is inspired from the photo. Great card!!

  4. I really like the strong colours and shapes in your card. I think that it's so clever that the papers you've used make your card look a bit like a picnic table: a happy place to dream big from. The flower tucked in like that is really stylish. Great card, Christine. I'm not surprised you like it so much.
