It’s a new Double Trouble Challenge today!

This week’s Things invite us to do a 3-2-1 recipe, a sketch, and to partner with Retro Rubber – one of my favorite challenges!

So I looked through my stash of sets that haven’t had love for a long time (that’s why I love Retro Rubber so much!)  And I grabbed “Crazy for Cupcakes” by Stampin Up!  It’s from 2009 and is so cute, it could be a set that was released yesterday!

dtc 59 1 The recipe from Thing 1 is

3 – Colors
2 – Embellishments
1 – Sentiment (stamped, clear or rubber) seasoned stamp more than 1 year old

My 3 colors are mint, yellow and pink

My 2 embellishments are sequins and a coordinating mint ribbon and my 1 sentiment is from the cupcake set and goes perfectly!

And that’s my card using all the fun invitations from Double Trouble!

Be sure to check out theDouble Trouble Challenge blog for more details so that you can play along!  And don’t forget to jump in with Retro Rubber if you use a stamp set older than a year with that sketch!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Yep, going back through some of the older stamps and using for a new creation is fun…I don’t have dates of stamps but I find a search on my blog will give me the first time I used the stamp and it’s amazing how many years have past since your first creation from a stamp set (and sometimes only used once). Your 3-2-1 recipe brought up a delicious dish of cupcakes and love the layout with your stitched frame and love the scatter of your sequins… pretty and fun card.

  2. I love your take on the sketch – the black and white background allows the intense colours in your image to shine through. That is one awesome cupcake stack 🙂 The little sequins around the cake are the perfect “extra”. Great work 🙂

  3. I love that stamp and how you colored it, and it worked perfect for the sketch! It’s fun to get some use from an older stamp (and a good reminder not to get rid of them!)

  4. This image is perfect for the sketch, and it is so bright and fun, no one would mind getting older if they received this card in the mail! CUTE! Thanks for playing along with our Retro Rubber challenge this week!
