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,


  1. This is a precious image and I love that your paper pieced parts of it. Isn't that sentiment so very true? Love this card, Diane.

  2. Diane, I am so glad that you found our challenge. We do love our older stamps! The bunny image is adorable. Love the paper piecing as well as the combination of designer papers. Thanks so much for including Retro Rubber in your stamping fun. Now that you have found us, I hope you will join us often!!

  3. Isn't it great to have a reason to go back to old favourites - and even forgotten favourites? The paper piercing is wonderful. Cute is a word I don't often use but it is the perfect word for this lovely creation. Adorable works even better! Your 'critters' are wonderful!

  4. Hello Diane: I'm so happy you found our challenge blog and happier that you are enjoying inking up some old favorites.
    Your little rabbits are adorable, how sweet they look hugging each other, fantastic paper piecing, what patience!!!!!
