Happy Tuesday, peeps! Time for another Retro Rubber Challenge where we use stamps at least a year old! Today it's "Anything Goes"!!
I thought the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch was fun:
And I had SO many ideas! Ultimately, I went for Christmas because these My Favorite Things Christmas Seasonal Sentiments, that I have had for at least three or four years, have big, bold sentiments:
I paired them with some Poppy Stamps pine bough dies and a wonky-stitched mat, then added some red glimmer paper stars:
Fun and festive! While I was at it, I stamped another one, same sentiment, but this time I used a Lawn Fawn stamp from 2013 called Peace Love Joy:
I stamped the little lights in Smoky Slate and colored them in with markers, then mounted it on a Real Red card base! You can't see it here, but I also added some Wink of Stella to the lights for fun! Easy peasy, especially with my Stamparatus!
Come on and give those older stamps some love--you know you have lots of them! Share your creation with us at Retro Rubber--be sure to read the guidelines--can't wait to see them!
After my confession of not liking to eat anything colored blue, two of my Paper Players teammates recommended a book for Cassidy to read called Droo; it's about an imaginary creature who can only eat blue things! It was a challenge to find it, but ebay finally came through! It was quite charming and she read it it to her mommy as well as to me!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
