Retro Rubber Challenge with Mama Elephant Stamps RRCB46

A new to me challenge blog- Retro Rubber- is based on a great idea--you have to use stamps at least 1 year old!  What a great motivator to bring out some loved but lonely stamps! The current challenge is to create a card with a critter.

I used a Mama Elephant stamp- of 2 adorable rabbits. I am not sure of the exact date but I know these are over 2 years old because I used them on a card in March 2014!

I paper pieced sections of the bunnies and colored a few sections with copics. And I just noticed I lost 2 of the Queen and Co rhinestones between creating and photographing....or I just missed putting them on- LOL.
Stop by Retro Rubber-- there are some fabulous cards!
Thanks for visiting,

Non-traditional Colors With The Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

I know, it is barely September...but have you started making your Christmas cards? I have a tiny pile- but what I have completed is thanks to the great challenges out there!  I love to make cards but sometimes I need a little push! Challenge #79 at the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge is to create a card using non traditional colors.

I used a great stamp set from My Favorite Things and the pink cardstock is also by MFT. And yes, I put Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers on her coat and the fire; it photographs funny...I love it in real life!

Have a wonderful week!


Frosty Sends Warm Fuzzies!

The challenge at
this time around is to create a card featuring something with an F. I decided to use this very friendly Frosty snowman who is sending warm fuzzies!  

I paper pieced his hat and scarf and it is hard to see but the snow banks and the fur and pompom on his hat are glistening from Spectrum Noir glitter markers. I love the patterned paper- it looks like the snow is actually moving!
