Time for Retro Rubber Challenge #48! Let's have some fun!

Thanks for stopping by!  It is time for Retro Rubber Challenge Blog's 48th challenge!  The theme this time involves using lace, ribbon or twine 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 created a background card in red, invitation size.  I then added a slightly smaller piece of black cardstock to the front.  Then, I ran a stitching die over kraft cardstock, and added that to the card front.  Next, I added white cardstock to the top.  Then, I added a smaller piece of kraft to the front.  I placed a heart sticker on the upper right corner of the kraft.

Next, on white cardstock I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink using a stampe set I have from the Rubber Cafe dated 2013.  It is called "You've Stolen My Heart".  I used the cat stamp and teh sentiment.  I colored the cats using Copic Markers.  I colored the background with very light pink.  I tied American Crafts twine onto the front.  I added a heart sticker on the lower left.  After putting pop dots in all corner I added this top layer to the card.  

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!

  4. Oh, you had me immediately with those cute kitties!! The second detail that got my heart going pitter patter was the stitching. Gotta get that! Wonderful colors and just the right touch with the twine!! Love it!

  5. Oh Christine, I just ordered this set of dies and I can't wait to use them, they add such interesting texture to your cards.
    And this kitties are so sweet, with their little tails entangled in a heart. I love that you left the twine loosely tied, that looks awesome.
    Beautiful card!!
