Retro Rubber #18 Get Your Sketch On!!


It is time for another fantastic Retro Rubber challenge..

Who doesn't love a sketch challenge?!

Don't forget to use a stamp older than a year and tell us how long you have had it..it's a big part of the fun..

I used old and new stamps. The balloon is from an old Teresa Collins stamp set that I have had since 2013. The sentiment is from a new SSS stamp set - Square Sayings.

I have a little void on one of the balloons, but that's handmade for you :)

I like the teeny tiny little blue scalloped edge poking out..it's a bit shorter than I wanted, but I still like it.

Pop over to Retro Rubber to see the superb creations by my teammates and link up to show us what you come up with.

Challenge ends on July 17th



  1. Wow! what a lovely balloon stamp Claire… love the sentiment too.. it's a fab layout and design… perfect CAS! :-))
    Hope you have a nice day!
    Big hugs, Sue B xx

  2. Claire, the hot air balloon stamp is amazing! I love how realistic it looks and your colors make it look almost like a photo. Love your little blue popping out! Wonderful card!!

  3. I likey! Also the void - that is simply the driver of the balloon shooting up the flames to make the balloon go higher - above the other ones! How is that for imagination! Hope you are well!

  4. I just love this balloon stamp, the color you chose to stamp it makes your card look like a vintage post card, really awesome.
    Thank you for sharing.

  5. Love that stamp Claire and the way you've used it! Fabulous cardhugs Carole Z X

  6. Such a great card, and yes the void is a sign of hand-made, I even have a stamp for the back of cards that makes such a statement!

  7. Claire, I love the hot air balloons as your background! And the peek of the circles are perfect with the design. Great job!
