I'm thrilled as can be! The ladies at Retro Rubber have invited me to be the Guest Designer for challenge #99 today. I really enjoy playing along with this challenge. It's so fun to look through all those "old" stamps each week. Especially when I decided to go out to the garage where I have a couple of bookcases filled with my "really old" SU wood mounted sets.
That is where I went "shopping" for the stamp set to make my guest designer card today. This SU set called Bundle Up it is from 2004!
To make my card, I unmounted the stamps from their wood blocks so I could use them in my Misti. Using SU markers, I colored directly on the rubber and then stamped. The center greeting is stamped in Memento tuxedo black with snowflakes stamped around it using Pool Party ink.
The stamped panel is layered on a panel of Lovely Lipstick paper and both are mounted to a Watermelon Wonder card base using fun foam to float the stamped image above the card base.
Here is the inside. The greetings are from two additional SU sets, one from 1998 and the other I'm pretty sure is over 5 years old.
I hope you have a chance to play along with us this week. It's so fun to look though those older stamps and give them some love.
Thanks so much for looking in, and big thanks to the ladies at Retro Rubber for the GD invitation this week,
