RRCB 77 Ends the Year with Evergreen Christmas

This challenge will be our last for 2017.  The 2018 challenges will begin mid-January.  So I hope you will play along with us the next week.  Most everyone will either be making Christmas cards or have had them finished for awhile by now.  You have until December 15th to link your traditional colors of Christmas (red, green, white) to our gallery!

I used Stampin’ Up!’s stamp set called Evergreen.  It was introduced during the 2012 holidays.  Silent Night is my favorite Christmas carole. I loved that this stamp could be overlayed with the Christmas tree images.  Using the tree silhouette image and Old Olive ink, the image was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock.  The silent night image was stamped with black ink and heat emboss with clear powder.  I did the same for the sentiments.  The sentiment on the card front can be found in Best Gifts, a new holiday release.

Evergreen, Best Gifts, Christmas, Stampin' Up!

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 # 77 sketch challenge starts today and ends on December 15th.  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.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Have fun stamping,

    Katy this card is beautiful. You picked dsp from one of my favorite dsp packs. The tree is lovely I really missed out on that one. I think that red bow is the perfect pop of color.

    That carol over the tree is stunning. I don’t remember ever seeing that set before but it’s lovely. The colours are great – nice green – and the swandri check is a nice rustic touch.
