Thank you for joining us for Retro Rubber's 59th challenge!

The big 59!  Challenge number 59!  Retro Rubber has a fun sketch challenge in store for you this time!  Just use a stamp one year old or older and the following sketch!  Easy and fun!  Here is the sketch graphic and the project that I created for the graphic:

To create my project I used a lacy type floral die.  It is so large it almost covers the whole invitation sized card.  I used watercolor style paper from MFT for the die cutting.  Next, I adhered this die cut to the front of an invitation sized pre-folded white card.  

Next, I stamped four butterflies with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock.  I colored them with Copic Markers and fussy cut the images.  I added foam adhesive to the butterflies for dimension.  I bent the butterflies at the center to make them appear to be resting from flying.  Resting in a flower garden.  Next, I added the hello sticker from Krazy Kreations.  The stamp set is from Hampton Arts and I have had it a long time.  The date is from 2010.  I will never part with this set.  It comes with 6! butterflies of different sizes and designs!  

Please join our challenge!  Then join us back at the Retro Rubber Blog the Sunday after the challenge ends to learn the challenge winner!  Thanks for joining the fun!  

I also entered the challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Blog, come join me there also!

Welcome! Please join us for Retro Rubber Challenge 58!

Hello and it is wonderful to "see" you!  Thanks for stopping by!

It is time for a new challenge over at the Retro Rubber Blog!  Challenge 58!  This time the challenge is "anything goes"!  Pretty simple and fun right?  Join us!

For this challenge you must also use a stamp that is one year old or older.  But you can create any project that you like, in the anything goes theme.

Here is the challenge graphic and the card I created this time around:

To create this card, which was super easy by the way, I used a white folded card invitation size, and a piece of cardstock that already came stitched with the banner. This cardstock is from DCWV.  I applied the banner cardstock, slightly trimmed so white would show.  I added a white "celebrate" diecut that I cut using my diecut machine and a die.  I used dimensional adhesive to apply the word.  Then, I stamped "you" on the diecut using a piece of an older stamp that I own (it is a thank you stamp from Studio112) which I inked with Memento ink.  I made sure there was no ink before stamping on the word "thank" and used my mini Misti.  

I entered my card in the following site's challenge: A Snowflakes Promise, please check out their site.  :)   Here is what the stitched paper pad looks like and the stamp set:

It took about 5 minutes max!  Love quick cards!  Won't you join us for this challenge?  Then join us back at the Retro Rubber Blog the Sunday after the challenge end date to see who won the challenge!
