It’s time for a new Retro Rubber Challenge Blog theme! This one is all about baby critters! I used the stamp set Hand Knit because of the sweet lamb… it just looks like a baby to me. And it might be because my Libby has always reminded me of an sweet innocent little lamb. Now that she is blind, we protect her like she is a newborn…. but enough of that.
Hand Knit was released in the 2010 annual catalog by Stampin’ Up! I was still knitting quite a bit during that time. During our vacation trip last week, I finished a blanket block. And, it has renewed my desire to knit. This stamp set was purchased to provide hand made note cards that would accompany my knitted gifts. How can you go wrong with that combination?
I used five of the six images provided in the Hand Knit stamp set on the front of this card. The colors were chosen to coordinate with the Affectionately Yours Specialty designer series paper from Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 annual catalog.
As I was considering how to use this stamp set, I placed the little lamb as the focal image in a note card size. I want to share this “prototype” card as it was so cute! It is so much fun to play with colors, images and bling. I also scored a couple of lines above and below to add additional texture.
Want to play along with us this week?
Guidelines for a Retro Rubber Challenge Blog challenge entry…
- One of your stamps must be at least one year old.
- You must tell us how long you have had the stamp or its age.
- Do not link your new project to more than 9 additional challenges.
Remember, the primary purpose for this blog challenge is to use and breathe life into our older stash of stamp sets. Many of these are retired and unavailable for purchase except through individuals who wish to sell their retired stamp sets. These stamps were purchased originally because there was something in the set that spoke to our heart. You can give them a chance to speak once again.
RRCB # 60 color inspiration challenge starts today and ends on April 21st. Have you been by the challenge blog to see my teammates inspiration projects? Come on by! We are so looking forward to seeing you in our gallery.
If you have any questions about my project, please let me know by comment or email.
Have fun stamping,
