Sending Thoughts for a Masculine Card that is Rooted in Nature for Retro Rubber

Great Autumn Card Featuring #RootedinNature, #SendingThoughts, #AllOccasion, #SecretstoStamping, #StampinUp

 

We are starting a new challenge at Retro Rubber and hope you have fun with the new sketch, There’s so many ways to interpret it! The only requirement is to use at least one stamp that’s older than a year (and please tell us how old it is or how long you have had it). My sentiment just met this requirement, since it came out in the 2017 Occasions Catalog and is now retired.  Rooted in Nature is a brand new stamp set with coordinating framelits that came out in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. This bundle has been a fantastic addition to my collection and absolutely perfect for Autumn cards as well as masculine cards all year long! This card will be sent to my son who just started law school so I wanted him to know that we were thinking about him.

 

 

 

My Secrets to Making This Project

  • This is a card that you can CASE easily. The trees were stamped with the same ink color with the ones in the background stamped off.
  • The trunk was stamped with Crumb Cake ink then the sentiment was stamped in Tranquil Tide. Once dry, it was fussy cut out and popped up with dimensionals.

Darling Label Punch Box Bundle Celebrates a Broadway Birthday with Hand Stamped Sentiments

Fun Birthday Card Featuring #DarlingLabel, #BroadwayBirthday, #Birthday, #Kids, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp

 

We are ready to start another challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments but first want to thank everyone who played along with our last sketch challenge. We loved all of the cards entered! Our next one is a color challenge and must admit that it was quite a challenge for me! In the end and a couple of “trash can cards” later, I CASE’d a card from the page 44 of the Annual Catalog and changed it up for a fun birthday card, using the Darling Label punch and stamp set. This is such a great kit and I’m so glad that I found a good challenge to use it. Look at what all you get (and includes a gorgeous reuseable tin!):

 

 

Box includes:
* Darling Label 6-piece photopolymer stamp set
* Clear stamp block
* Grapefruit Grove and Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Spots
* Darling Label Punch
* 8″ x 8″ x 3″ (20.3 x 20.3 x 7.6 cm) tin

 

 

My Secrets to Making This Darling Label Project

  • I chose the papers first: the Night of Navy patterned paper from Twinkle Twinkle DSP, the Flirty Flamingo polka dot patterned paper from the retired 2016-2018 In Color DSP and paired them with Gorgeous Grape cardstock.
  • To add some color, Gorgeous Grape cardstock, punched with the 2 1/2″ circle punch, was adhered to the back of the Pearlized Doily.
  • The sentiment was stamped twice – once in Gorgeous Grape and again in Flirty Flamingo – then the Happy Birthday was cropped out and layered on top of the Gorgeous Grape sentiment. Then, they were punched out with the Darling Label Punch.
  • The Flirty Flamingo patterned DSP was cut to 2″ then one end was made into a banner with the Banner Triple Punch.
  • Balloons were punched and layered onto the card base.
  • Ice cream image was stamped and cropped with the Broadway Birthday bundle.
  • The finishing touch was adding sequins and a silver candle from Candle Embellishments.
