Guest Designer for Retro Rubber Challenge

I am honored to be guest designing for the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog for the newest challenge. I was sent the sketch and it didn’t disappoint.

I chose Penny Black Sweet Thing dated 2009 on the wood block. The greeting comes from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler which was released in 2011. I chose turquoise for the background, cupcake, and strip highlight; I like it with the bright pink tones. I used gems from retired Stampin Up colors. With a white gel pen, I was able to add brightness to the cupcake sprinkles. I enjoyed using the sketch. Join me in this challenge using older product you probably have on hand.

  1. This is so cute! Love your color choices. Congratulations on your guest designer spot; this is a great card design to inspire others!! I’ve not had much time to craft but am hoping to play along.

    1. Thanks! It is an easy sketch to follow and was fun to create with. It seemed that Mimi just wanted to be stamped.

  2. Love how you got so much texture in a small space. The layout shines through yet lets the stamping stand out as the stars of this show. Congrats on the designer job.

    1. Thank you! I seem to want texture a lot as plain looks like something is missing. I enjoyed creating with the sketch.

  3. Congratulations, Lisa, on your beautiful card and being chosen as a guest designer. I love how your colored Mimi and her delicious cupcake. Your card will inspire many including me.

  4. Cute and as you love doing sketches the perfect way for you to be a guest designer. Congrats on that and on the card.

    1. Thank you! Yes, I love sketches. They are a great starting point. I feel so honored to being selected.

  5. Thanks so much for joining us as Guest Designer. Your card is gorgeous! The image is sweet and beautifully coloured. I think that the soft green is a great foil for the brighter pinks – lovely combination of colour.

  6. What an adorable card! Isn’t it wonderful how adding a touch of white gel pen can add so much to a card? It took me such a long time to buy one and start using it for more than just printing on darker envelopes. You have such fun stamps.

    1. Thanks! I used the white gel on the cupcake spots, then added the glitter pen to outline places. Both add so much.
