Happy Tuesday, peeps! Time for another Retro Rubber challenge, and we have a fun tic-tac-toe grid this week! Check it out:
I chose to do the left diagonal down: eggs, diecut and patterned paper! So here we go! I used a set from 2000 called Soft as a Feather! It was one of my favorite sets long ago, but I sold it! Luckily, I found it online and bought it again! I paired it with Nature Walk from 2011:
I stamped the nest and eggs from Soft as a Feather on Very Vanilla cardstock with Early Espresso ink and colored them with Blends and Copics, then fussy cut the eggs and popped them up on mini dimensionals:
I used the Stitched Shapes circle die to cut it out. I then stamped two rows of eggs from Nature walk and colored them as well, did a row of double stitched embossing on them and mounted the panel on a piece of retired DSP (can't remember the name!!!) and ran the whole panel through the Big Shot with the largest Stitched Rectangle die:
I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment, mounted everything on a Soft Sky card base and added a linen thread bow. Finally I popped up the nest image and added a birthday sentiment on the inside. I love the soft look of these eggs....and it's not an Easter card, LOL!
I hope you'll play with our Retro Rubber challenge this week...remember that your stamps have to be at least a year old, and you must tell us their approximate age! Can't wait to see what you create! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
