It is time for Retro Rubber Challenge #66! Wedding project!

Hi and thanks for joining me!

Today Retro Rubber Challenge Blog has a new challenge, involving a wedding theme, and a stamp aged one year old or older.

Simply create a new project using a stamp one year old or older and the theme of wedding.  Be sure to tell us the age of the stamp!  Here is the challenge graphic and the project that I created this time.

I was so excited to do this challenge, because I just recently acquired a new wedding stamp set.  I had not realized I have almost no wedding themed stamps at all!  I also had a new stamp pad from Tim Holtz, Distress Oxide in Worn Lipstick color.  Happy day!

I created a white card, folded, scored with corners trimmed. I took a piece of patterned paper that is from a pad from Altenew.  I just love the watercolor look!  Onto the paper, I stamped with the flowers in my new wedding stamp set, using black ink.  I colored the flowers using Copic Markers on the colored paper, new territory for me!  I added a tied cord.  And then, I took out sentiment stamps from the new set and stamped in black onto the paper.  I then added the three heart stamped image, this is an old stamp.  It is from a Valentine set from The Cutting Cafe Shop, dated 2016.  So not that old, but old enough to qualify for this challenge!  I trimmed the patterned paper's corners, and added it to the card front.  I added cording as trim.  Finally I stamped using the new ink with the "Wedding Day" stamp from my new stamp set.  This ink is creamy and delightful.  If you have not tried it, try it!

So there you have it, a new challenge and my challenge card.  Will you join us?  Hope so!  Just visit the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog for more detail and to submit your project.  Then join us the Sunday after the challenge ends to learn who is the challenge winner!  Good luck!  


  1. So colorful and fun. Playing with new along with the old is great and you've melded at altogether so nicely!

  2. That folded paper technique you've used is fabulous! Such a clever idea! Those bright and vibrant reds and pinks look great.

  3. Love your sweet, romantic wedding card, Christine! It has a vintage feel to me. I might have to try those DOx inks after seeing your cute card, my friend!

  4. Christine, another fabulously modern wedding card, I love the folded paper technique, very clever as always. Clairexx
