Retro Rubber Challenge #80 Dotty for you...


Welcome to another awesome Retro Rubber challenge.

Here's this week's theme -

I instantly thought of 'Space' when I saw this theme and so broke out a rather neglected set by Paper Smooches 'Space Cadet' from 2016.

To create the main focal point of my card - a moon / planet like circle, I masked off the area and blended Faded Jeans and Broken China Distress Oxide inks. I stamped stars onto this circle using Tsukineko Delicata White Shimmer ink..its not very visible in the photo, but looks great IRL.

I stamped two of the actual planets from the set, I think these also count towards using dots and circles!.

I stamped, coloured and cut the Spaceman and two little aliens and mounted them onto my card using foam tape.

The fun sentiment is actually new and by MFT.

This card is totally going to my Nephew for his birthday later on this week!

Show us your spotty makes and pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things the DT have made.

Challenge ends February 23rd. Don't forget to tell us the age of your stamp, that is part of the fun of our challenge and please only enter 10 challenges including Retro Rubber.



  1. Ok Claire, I'm seriously in love with your adorable Space Man and those sweet Aliens floating around, the sentiment made me laugh, because it sounds a lot like what Tom Hanks said in the Apollo 13th. movie.
    Super fun card for a kid of any age.

  2. While Maria is thinking movies, I'm thinking David Bowie! LOL What a cute card! You have such a great collection of adorable stamps, Claire! Your cards always make me smile.

  3. This is so fun! I love the sentiment and your perfect masking x

  4. Dude so I totally made a card just like this without seeing your post. I was masking off a little space scene and as I was using the ancient space monkey stamp set you gave me years and years ago I thought, I'm going to see what Retro Rubber have on, maybe I can make this work. And then I see we've basically made the same card. Again. x
