Retro Rubber Challenge Blog, time for challenge 41!!

Come join the crafty fun!  Right now, the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog is hosting a patriotic (red, white and blue) themed challenge.  Simply use a stamp one year old or older, and the chosen theme, and join us! 

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

This card was so quick and easy to make!  I used a white card in the invitation size.  Then I took an embossing folder from Sizzix, in the United States design.  I embossed another piece of white cardstock.  Then, I cut a piece of patterned paper to fit behind the cardstock, this is the cute paper pad from My Favorite Things in Subtle Plaids.  Next, I added a piece of adhesive fun foam behind the patterned paper for dimension and adhered this to the card front.  I added an EK Success red sticker, and taking an old Tim Holtz sentiment stamp (Simple Sayings) and my Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the card.  Then I added a white heart sticker and some red cord from American Crafts. 

Please join us in the challenge!  Then check back to the Retro Rubber Blog one week from this Sunday to learn the challenge winner!  I can't wait to see your creations!

Retro Rubber Challenge 40! So fun!

Thanks for stopping by!  It is time for Retro Rubber Challenge Blog's 40th challenge!  The theme this time involves using a sketch, and a stamp one year old or older.  Too fun!  Here is the card that I created for this challenge and the photo inspiration image:

I had so much fun making this card!  I have always wanted to create a white on white card, I love how this turned out!  It was so quick and easy!  First I cut and scored a card to 4 1/4" by 5 1/2".  I ran a scrap of cardstock through my Spellbinders machine using the butterfly rectangular die.  I attached this element to the card.  Next, I ran another piece of cardstock through the die cut machine with the stitched circle.  I added the circle to the card using dimensional adhesive.  I stamped the butterfly using Memento ink in Tuxedo Black, and fussy cut.  I folded the butterfly down the middle and added it to the card.  The butterfly is an older stamp from Hero Arts, 2013.  Finally using the same ink and my Misti tool, I stamped the sentiment onto the card.  This stamp is from 2013 from Simon Says Stamp. 
I'd love to see your creations for this challenge!  So come join the fun!  Visit the Retro Rubber Blog today, then revisit one week from this coming Sunday, to learn the challenge winner!
