Retro Rubber Challenge #68..Colour Me..


This time with a card!!!

Yes, it is time for another fun Retro Rubber challenge - today is also my Ma's birthday - Happy Birthday Momma!

This time we have a colour / photo inspiration challenge for you -

I love Paper Smooches Best Buds set, I use it a lot, I have had it since January 2016.

I kept my whole card super simple, two stitched oval die-cut panels, one in red gingham to match the photo inspiration. I stamped and die-cut the banner from the Best Buds set, the sentiment is also from the set.

I coloured the banner using Promarkers and a clear Wink of Stella pen.

I am really happy with it's understated elegance, perfect for a thank you card.

Show us what the photo inspires you to make, but first pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things that the rest of the DT have made.

Challenge ends August 11th. Don't forget to use a stamp over a year old and tell us the age of it, that is part of the fun of our challenge and please only enter 10 challenges including Retro Rubber.



  1. Psst, missus. I think you forgot to include a pic of your card on your blog post. Or was it just a cunning plan to make us look at all your teamies fab makes too! They were all fab by the way but yours was so sweet!

    1. LMAO - just noticed the lack of card, I am obviously not with it! Cx

    2. Maybe my lack of brain is contagious!

  2. Claire, I guess I am glad that I waited to comment on your card because I love this picture. You have had much on your mind, that's for sure. The stamp image is so lovely against the red gingham! That spoke to me as well. Great card, teammie!!

  3. Hey, Claire, we've all done it at least once. LOL I was still doing my blog post till after midnight because I totally forgot that it was going live on Tuesday. Stampin' Up! just came out with a planner and my almost fogetting made me break it out and get it going so I don't have an issue in the future. Anyhoooo, your card is so sweet and definitely has the essence of the photo inspiration. I hope you are doing better, my friend! Hugs!!

  4. I think that oval of gingham is great. It draws you straight in. It's a perfect backdrop for your sweet sentiment. I hope things are getting on the right side of happy for you.

  5. Claire, love your CAS card. The gingham is a great background for that lovely sentiment! Great take on the challenge, and thanks for the inspiration.

  6. Happy belated bd to momma! Love the gingham, so fun! The oval design is so perfect and love the colored floral image too! Perfection!
