A sketch for Retro Rubber

 Another fun sketch to play along with a Retro Rubber.  Please do join us with your interpretation!

A fall birthday card was in my to-do list and I had the perfect papers and idea to work with this sketch.  Heartfelt Creations Blazing Poppy released in June of 2015 fit the ticket of being both "fallish" and Retro.  I've used this stamp and die a number of times, and love the results.  

  • The flower images are stamped on coral paper in VersaFine Clair Nocturn and shaped in the 3-D Basics Floral mold from Heartfelt Creations.  A quick mist of water and a run through a die cut machine before inking with Memento Morocco and the flower layers are ready to adhere together.  A little black glitter is added with Art Institute glue after the flowers are glued together.
  • Papers for the Blazing Poppy collection are trimmed and die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched circles.  The border is punched with Martha Stewart's double looped punch.
  • Heartfelt Creations Ticket and Tag die is used to die cut the sentiment label, and Heartfelt Creations Inspire Me sentiments from 2012 is stamped in Memento Morocco.
  • Edges are inked in both Memento Olive Grove and Morocco before the layers are adhered together.
