Hey peeps! It's Tuesday, and that means a new Retro Rubber Challenge! This week is "Anything Goes"! We just need to make sure our stamps are at least a year old!
In my latest issue of Martha Stewart, I saw this pretty purse, and of course, like any good stamper, I immediately began thinking about how I could interpret this into a card!! So I perused my stamps and went to work!
I found some Altenew and Avery Elle two-step stamps that had similar features to the florals. I did have to stamp the background "blobs" multiple times to get the shape I wanted, and I didn't do so well with the white embossing (forgot to use my embossing buddy), but all in all, I was happy with the final effort:
The Altenew Painted Flower set is one I purchased at a stamp show about four years ago, and the Avery Elle Peonies set was gifted to me about the same time. I stamped the background flowers in Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo and Night of Navy repeatedly on a Very Vanilla background, then added Night of Navy and Craft White (embossed with White embossing powder) outlines on top:
I added a square stitched scalloped mat, and mounted it on a panel of Very Vanilla embossed with the new Ornate Floral embossing folder, which is very sweet! My one concession was to use a current set for my sentiment, also embossed in White. My final addition were some sequins that matched the flowers nicely! It all went on a Flirty Flamingo card base. I had a lot of fun creating this from my own inspiration photo! I hope you'll play along with our "Anything Goes" challenge this week too! See you in the Retro Rubber gallery! Thanks for popping in today!
Most of you who normally attend church are watching services online, as our church family does. Our praise team, of which Dana is a part, still provides music during the service, so she still goes on to our physical church on Sunday mornings. We have one couple who do a lot for our church, and are a lot of fun to be around; they thought it would cheer up our pastor to provide a "Flat Stanley" type of set up for him when he arrived on Sunday morning:
