I don't often do challenges these days, but couldn't resist this since I have been itching to ink up this stamp set for a while now. The card is for the Retro Rubber Challenge #134:
I kept it fairly simple as I really wanted to highlight the image. The card base is Highland Heather with a layer of Pear Pizzazz that was embossed with an embossing folder from SAB. Unfortunately, it is not in the new catalog, but I really like it and am keeping it around! The flower and stem were stamped on white with Memento black and then colored with Stampin' Blends. I cut it out with one of my favorite dies from the Ornate Layers set. I rounded the corners as it seemed kind of clunky and I do like the result.
I am keeping pretty busy with cleaning and organizing the craft cave, but am also participating in some "virtual" stamp camps. We all feel the loss of the time we spend together as demonstrators and with the wonderful campers that come to these camps. Sassy Chic, Stamp Camp North and the Rose Hill Grange Stamp Camp are all doing virtual camps this month and may continue it next month depending on the pandemic situation. If you have any questions about how this works, just leave a comment or shoot me an email (link is in the sidebar). I also placed my pre-order from the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog and hope to have some new toys to play with very soon! There are some lovely things in this new catalog and I am sure you will all be wanting to play with them too.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you are all staying healthy and safe!
