Come join Challenge 19 at The Retro Rubber Challenge Blog!

It is time for challenge 19 at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog!  Challenge 19 is a color inspiration challenge. And of course, as always, the challenge involves using a stamp one year old or older.  Here is the challenge graphic and the card I created for this challenge:

I used a balloon die, a stitched die, an old sentiment stamp, cardstock, washi tape, watercolor markers, dimensional adhesive and gems.  

I also entered my card in the challenge at Simon Says Stamp.  Come check it out and join the fun!  I'd love to see your creations!  Just stop by the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog for full details of Challenge 19.  And be sure to stop by the blog a week from this coming Sunday to learn the winners of the challenge!  Hope to see you soon!  Thanks for stopping by, and happy crafting!


  1. Hello Christine: Your card is just so sweet and fun, I love this die and the way you colored the balloons, what a fabulous birthday card for young and old.
    I've seen this fabulous stitched dies, I need to get me a set, that is for sure.
    Thank you for sharing.

  2. Love the birthday card, Christine! As Maria mentioned, this card is great for any age. What I like most about the balloons is that they are reminiscent of my stained glass days when I would have to grind the glass to fit close. This would be so much easier for the same effect, LOL...

  3. This is one adorable card! So bright and fun! I couldn't put my finger on it but Katy is right - the balloons remind me of stained glass! Beautiful!!

  4. This is so fun and cheery Christine, I love the balloons. I have just bought a balloon you are giving me food for thought here. Cx

  5. LOVE your cheerful birthday card! You really took the colors from the inspiration photo and ran with them! I love the stitched dies, too and just completed my collection so will be using them a lot in the future. Great card!
