Retro Rubber Challenge #74

Hello...and Happy Wednesday! Middle of the week and
it's my day off.  I will be posting a couple of entry's today.
This one is for the Retro Rubber Challenge #74. This
is my first entry and I was so excited when I found this
blog! What a great idea to motivate us to use our
older stamp sets. Now I haven't been stamping for long,
but, I do have some older sets that I have picked up in
yard sales, or from demonstrator's cleaning out some
of their stock. Anyway, I am glad to participate!

So for this card I used Four Feathers from Stampin Up! 
I believe this set and the dies are from their 2014 Holiday
catty. I just love this sweet little set and I love feathers!

Wow...Thank You Design Team!!

I used Soft Sky paper and inks from Stampin Up! I then decided
to emboss a couple of the feathers in silver so they would stand
out a little more. Love the layout of this sketch, didn't change that
at all.

Well, that's my card. I had fun joining in and enjoyed viewing
how everyone else interpreted the sketch. See you soon...


  1. We are so happy you found us, too! Your card is beautiful!! I really love the sparkle from the silver embossing and sequins. Love it!! Thank you for playing with us at Retro Rubber and hope to see you back in our gallery again soon.

  2. I'm so pleased you found us too! It's always a good feeling to discover a new challenge site. I love the feathers as a way of using the sketch - they're perfect! I like the feathers you've stamped in the background too and the touch of bling from the sequins. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this week.

  3. Ditto! So so glad you found us! A very beautiful card - clean and crisp with really beautiful colors. Great idea to stamp images around the popped up feathers! Love the bling and twine! Wowza! Fantastic!! Thanks for joining at Retro Rubber!!

  4. Hello Melissa, we are so happy you found our challenge blog and decided to participate with this gorgeous card.
    I love feather stamps and when they come with a set of dies, even better.
    You picked lovely colors for your card, I love how you created your own background by stamping more feathers with the tone on tone method, looks beautiful.
    Thank you for sharing with us at RETRO RUBBER, hope you continue to play next time.

  5. Yeah, you are using your retro stamps and I am glad you found our blog! I must admit some of my stamps are much older than my children! You did such a lovely job with the sketch, the colors are soft and calming! Thanks so much for playing along and stop by again soon!
