Retro Rubber Challenge 101 - Design Team Card

Many thanks to all of you who followed our 100 Challenge Blog Hop and left comments. The prize list will be up soon. We enjoyed reading the comments and looking at the entries in our celebration Tic-Tac-Toe.

This week at Retro Rubber, we have a Christmas inspired photo inspiration for you to end the year with. Take any aspect of the picture and use it to inspire you. As always at Retro Rubber, you must use at least one stamp older than a year and give us an approximate age for it.

What inspired me from the picture was the glittery snow and the snowman. This led me to create a starry night sky, overlooking the snowman and his village.

There are two retro sets at play in this card. Hearts Come Home, from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue is the main player. However, in amongst the sponging and spritzing of the night sky there is also some stamping. I used Frosty White shimmer paint and Holly Jolly Greetings from the 2015 Holiday Catalogue to add in some stars too.

Why not pop over to Retro Rubber Challenge and see how the rest of the team have been inspired by this photo? Then take some time out from Silly Season and do some crafting and join us.

  1. Jan... fun card! I am thinking I need to visit Retro Rubber for inspiration... I love the idea of pulling out my old rubber stamp blocks.

  2. Oh my, this is beautiful Jan! What a stunning background!

  3. I always love seeing the silhouette of Santa and his Reindeer flying across a starry sky and the one you created is gorgeous.
    And what a beautiful and shimmery little town is under it, love it.
    Thank you for sharing.

  4. This sparkly, shimmery scene is the perfect Christmas card Jan, I love all the details and the colours. It all just works so well together. Cx
