Hi everyone! Tuesday means another Retro Rubber challenge and this is an easy one---Anything Goes! Just use stamps that are least a year old, and tell us how old they are!!
I switched gears from Easter yesterday to Christmas today, dusting off a stamp set from 2012 called Winter Memories--again, it was only in the Holiday mini and I barely had time to use it! I stamped the ice skates in Stazon black and used watercolors and markers to color it in:
I colored a little Soft Sky "shadow" behind the image to give it a little depth, which looks nice with the blue background papers I used:
The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in Poppy Parade, diecut with a square Stitched Shape die, repositioning it so I could get the rectangle shape. My background is the Plaid Flannel stamp (2006), which is another stamp I'd been wanting for a while and finally found it on ebay! The little holly leaves are from the Quilt Builder die set; I sponged the edges in Craft White ink, and punched some berries from a scrap of the same paper I used on the front of the card...those little white dots came in handy for my berries' highlights!
And for the inside, I used a stamp set from 2013 called Warmth and Wonder:
And now I have another card for my Christmas stash! I hope you'll play along with us...the field is wide open! Share it with us at Retro Rubber and meanwhile, check out what everyone else created for some fun inspiration! You'll be surprised at what's in the gallery this week!
The library had Candy Bar Bingo yesterday...I don't think they were prepared for the 40+ children that showed up....but the librarian kept her cool and everyone went home a winner! It was especially fun since the bingo chips were Hershey's Kisses!
(Notice the kisses all lined up!!!)
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
