Make It Old Challenge

It's time for a new challenge at Rubbernecker Stamps. The theme this fortnight is "Make It Old" in honor of Senior Citizens Day coming up in August. Rubbernecker has some funny senior citizen stamps, and I chose "Ethel with Coffee" to make my card with because I may or may not be on my way to becoming Ethel. I mean, she's got the coffee and the attitude. I just need the old lady hair in curlers and we'll be twins. 


The sentiment reminds me of my mom, actually. We used to work with a guy who said that, and then she started saying it, and now it makes me think of her, especially since she's starting to have senior moments. The papers I chose are from Kaisercraft, and that flower print kind of made me think of grandmas. I think mine might have had some wallpaper like that back in the day. 😉

Make sure you stop by the blog and enter this challenge for your chance to win one of two prizes: a $25 gift certificate for 1st place, and a $15 gc for second place. This challenge runs for two weeks.

The stamps I used for this challenge are lusted below for your convenience:

More Butterflies and Birthdays

Hello! Back again with another new clear butterfly set from Rubbernecker Stamps. I've paired Butterflies 2 with the Happy Birthday clear set for another birthday card. I love butterflies and there are a lot of people in my family, so I'm always in need of a good birthday card. There are eight stamps in the butterfly set, with a big and small version of four different butterflies. I've used one of each butterfly on this card.


I colored the butterflies with Copics, then fussy cut them out. I picked out my paper from Stampin' Up first, then matched my markers to the paper colours. 

Make sure you stop by the Rubbernecker blog to check out the other beautiful cards made by our talented DT ladies. I will have another card up tomorrow for the blog challenge, so pop by tomorrow to see what the challenge theme is. 

The stamps I used for this card are listed below:

A Vintage Challenge at Rubbernecker Stamps

We are having a Vintage challenge this fortnight at Rubbernecker Stamps. I love vintage inspired anything so this was a lot of fun for me. I used this little girl stamp called Hannah for my card. She is the perfect stamp for a vintage inspired card.

I stamped the image with Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I also used a birthday stamp from the Happy Birthday stamp set. I used Michele R Digital Papers in Basic Vintage along with the Basic Vintage Elements 1 Set to make the little envelope and tag. The metal heart and wood butterfly are from Michaels craft stores. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
