Hi everyone! It's Tuesday, and that means it's time for another Retro Rubber challenge, where we give our older stamps some love! Today we have an easy theme:
We have a newcomer at our church, and she just happened to have a little girl on MY BIRTHDAY!! Woohoo! We are taking her a meal today, so I wanted to make a card for her and so this challenge was perfect! I used my much-neglected Little Cuties stamp set (2017), stamping the pieces on some Shimmery White cardstock and used Blends to color them in; I must say that the Blends "blend" very nicely on this cardstock, I'll be using it more! So here we go:
I used the TGIF sketch for my starting point:
I used some Homespun Gingham from My Favorite Things for the background, adhering it to a Soft Seafoam card base. I cut two scalloped edges using the Be Mine die from some Crisp Cantaloupe (ret) cardstock for a border, and I used an older PTI set called Daily Design Sentiments for the banner, stamped in Mint Macaron. I don't have any idea how old that set is, but I am guessing it is from around 2010. I know I've had it for a long time! I also stamped some random flowers from a 2015 Paper Pumpkin set as a background:
My final embellishment was to add some faceted dots in Mint Macaron and Grapefruit Grove! I stamped this sentiment on the inside in Smoky Slate (God's Blessings, 2006):
I am looking forward to meeting this little sweetie! I hope you'll play along with our Retro Rubber challenge...just remember that the stamps must be at least one year old and you must tell us the age! Have fun!
I babysat yesterday and Cassidy went into hairdresser mode, or perhaps I should say "hair decorator" mode. She gave Jackie the rainbow hair treatment....thank goodness Jackie's mom is very chill about it!
