Guest Designing for Retro Rubber #133

Hi Everyone,

for the next two weeks I have the honor to guest design for the Retro Rubber Challenge. I love this challenge -it encourages you to use older stamps. Don't we all have them - old, loved, but underused....I have a full room of them, LOL!


This balloon girl is especially pretty, which I have in my possession since 2016. The stencil I used is also a few years old, although I don't exactly remember how old. The sentiment is new, but at least 2/3's of my supplies are old - not even counting the inks I used....

The theme of this challenge is your favorite, I bet:


It's mine for sure!


I hope you will play along and give your old stamp some love! 
See you at Retro Rubber.

Happy Stamping!

I love and own this image...it's one of my favorites. Absolutely love the colorful cloud banks you've stenciled. Adds to the dreamy effect, beautifully.

I've been saving this one in my inbox, Cornelia. I'm just fascinated by your incredible rainbow clouds! Do you think you could do a video? I can only imagine the thousands of people who are going to try this and watching you do it would be so helpful! Thank you for the wonderful inspiration and congratulations on guesting at RR!!

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
