Hi everyone! If you're on the east coast of the US, I hope you are staying safe and dry....we have had so much rain and more is on the way!!! I feel waterlogged! Anyway, it's time for our latest RetroRubber challenge! Here we go:
Let the photo inspire you...it doesn't have to be school-themed, as you will see from my card! You can let the colors or subject inspire you in any way you like! The wife of one of John's co-workers at his part-time job just had a baby, and she is a teacher, so I thought an apple-inspired card would be fun! I have used the Inspire.Create sketch for this week to kick-start my creativity:
And here is my creation:
I have had this Papertrey paper forever, not sure why I have been hoarding it! Aren't those colors fun?! Anyway, it made a great background for my Poppy Parade apple. To create the apple, I diecut an oval from some older SU Poppy Parade DSP, then trimmed the top of it to resemble the apple. I sponged around the edges to give it depth, then diecut a leaf, folded it in half and put it through my crimper--now there's a retro tool as well! The sentiments are both from a retired SU set from 2008 called Nursery Necessities:
I mounted it on a Early Espresso card and it was done! I hope you'll play along with our RetroRubber challenge this week...remember, the stamps have to be at least one year old and you must tell us their approximate age! Hope to see you in the gallery!
Trust me, no one will be wearing sunglasses any time soon around here...upside down or otherwise! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
