Happy Sunday and Happy October! I’m starting the week of with some stamping. I have been trying to work hard in my new farm life and find balance with it all. But one thing is for sure – I’m NOT balanced when I’m not stamping ha ha!!
So I jumped into one of my favorite challenges to get the mojo flowing. Retro Rubber Challenge Blog! If you follow me here on my blog or Instagram, you know I love to alternate between using new goodies and dipping into my old stash. I love to give old stamps love! So here is their current challenge
I chose to do the bottom row across
I used a VERY old set called “Upsy Daisy” by Stampin’ Up! I wanted to refresh it with some new style. I did some ink blending and splattering over an embossed image of those cute daisy silhouettes. I believe this set is from 2009. Wow! 12 years old and a darling card can still come from it!
My color scheme was inspired by the challenge over at TGIF challenges
Such a pretty color palette!
I used an envelope die set, also by Stampin’ Up! to create the cute little envelope out of the newsprint pattern paper. I searched and searched to find the name of it, but couldn’t find it! Wish I would have labeled it back when I got it years ago.
Added a little ink blending and some ribbon, along with some hand lettering to give the envelope a nice touch.
And something that flies – the cute little butterfly with a pearl accent!
It’s always fun to pull out sets and give them a refresher. I don’t even remember the last time I used this set. But when I did a giant de-stash, I felt it was cute enough to keep! I made a little video of this card coming together. You can catch it on my Instagram!
Thank you for stopping by today! I’ll have another card up here tomorrow for the fun Double Trouble challenge that begins first thing in the morning. See you then!
