Hello Stampers! It’s a Retro Rubber card for you today, where the challenge is making tags. I really couldn’t wait to show you this card because the stamp set is truly a classic and will definitely keep a place in my retired collection. I love how it turned out! What makes it better this time is being able to use my Blendies with it. I am more than happy that the Blendies are here, but unfortunately they are not available right now. Can you get this look with other coloring methods? Absolutely! If you enjoy coloring with a blender or aqua pens, they are wonderful as well. I just love the control I have with the Blendies and am totally hooked. If you haven’t gotten them yet, they are definitely worth the wait. [Update: 3/10/15: Stampin’ Up! just announced that the Blendabilities products will be discontinued due to quality issues at the manufacturer’s. They hope to provide another alcohol marker line in the future.]
