Retro Rubber Challenge #48

Good morning! We have a new challenge for you over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  Here is the inspiration for the challenge 


Here is what I created 

I used a Manila tag and distressed it with Tim Holtz vintage ink. Next I die cut the trees using the Sizzix thinlets and distressed with SU inks and painted the tree tops with a textured snow paste. I then cut the Stitched hills using the memory box thinlets and distressed then with SU inks as well and painted a snow line at the tops. For the the bottom layer I cut another Stitched hill and stamped the v bug using the Unity stamp set Oh Christmas Joy (released in Oct 2014) with momento black ink.  I colored the image in using my TH distress markers and then sponged the background with SU Soft Sky ink. To finish I dabbed some snow spots to create a falling snow effect.  I added the sentiment from the same set above the trees and then added some SU ribbon. 

Thank you so much for stopping today. 

Until next time 

Happy crafting 🙂

Retro Rubber Challenge #46

Good morning! We have a new challenge over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog and it’s all about critters!! Here is the inspiration for the challenge 


Here is what I created 


I choose Taken With Teal for my card base and then added layers of white and black. For the main layer I started with a piece of Whisper White and sponged with Taken Teal ink darkest on the outside layer to lighter towards the center. I then stamped all the images and sentiment from the SU set Wetlands that was released in 2013.  To finish I added a piece of ribbon around the left side of the black and main layer.  Super easy card to make!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have time to play along with us for this challenge. 

Until next time

Happy crafting 🙂

Retro Rubber Challenge #45 – Sketch

Good morning! I wanted to share with you my card for our new challenge over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  We have a great Sketch for our new challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge #45 - Sketch

Here is what I created

Oh Whale

I decided to use a SU set called Oh Whale from 2013. I started with a Buckaroo Blue card base and then added a piece of Whisper White that I sponged the top half with YoYo Yellow (masking off the sun) and bottom half with Buckaroo Blue. I then took a strip of white and stamped the waves and distressed in blue ink then added to the center of the sponged layer. Next I stamped and die cut the whale and tucked him in behind the waves and stamped the hearts in red. To finish I stamped the sentiment on white and using the Word Window punched it out and added to my card using dimensionals.

I had forgotten how fun this set was to play with!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you can play along with us for this challenge.

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂
