I was selected to be a guest designer for the Retro Rubber Challenge. I made two cards using the challenge details.
The challenge is tic tac toe! I love birds, die cutting, embossing, patterned paper, and anything else available on the board. It was a tough decision deciding where to begin.
The circle card follows the top row across. I used The Stamps of Life toucan2stamp with matching die from August 2019. The flowers are from the same set. The stick for the toucan to stand on was a die from Hero Arts in a kit also from 2019. The scalloped circle is from a Sizzix die. I used a stencil from Taylored Expressions, which was new in 2021. The circle card base was created using the largest Sizzix circle die. The stencil used for the card base was A Starry Night by Hero Arts. I used Gina K Designs ink to blend the stencils in Key Lime and Blue Raspberry.
I like the Retro Rubber Challenges because it gives me new ideas for my older stamps and supplies. It helps me shop my stash.
This card was fun to create as I love tropical images and own quite a few. I followed the second column for this card. The stamped images are all from Catherine Pooler Designs Toucan Do It, March 2219. All were colored with alcohol inks and fussy cut. The embossed background is SU Layered Leaves, very retired. I used GKD Key Lime and Fresh Asparagus cardstock for the background and card base.
I enjoyed guest designing for Retro Rubber Challenge. Thank you for the opportunity.

Congratulations to be a guest designer, Lisa. Your cards are so creative, fun and refreshing. Love those tropical colors and stamped images.
Thank you! I have a lot of tropical birds.
Sometimes the guest gig turns into a long term position. You would be so perfect for it. Your coloring and fussy cutting on the second one stole my heart.
I had fun with this challenge! I have one bird all colored and cut, but didn’t have room. I will use it at another time. Thank you!
Congrats on the gig Lisa and those two cards are so creative. I love the rainbow beaks on the birds. Wow!
Thank you! I have fun with the toucans.

Thank you! This is always an enjoyable challenge to participate in. I had fun with the tic-tac-toe board.
Congratulations on being the guest designer. I love both of your fun cards. You used such pretty colors, and you have lots of texture, which makes them both great.
I love texture. It looks blank without texture, so I keep finding ways to add it. Thanks!
Love your fun, bright creative cards! So happy you’re guesting with us this week too! Congrats!
Thank you! I had so much fun with the board.
