Blooming Pumpkin.......

SOS Headquarters

Hello everyone: My teammates and I at SHOPPING OUR STASH want to get you in the mood for Autumn, Pumpkin Pie, crisp, clear days with gorgeous colors on the trees, Thanksgiving, etc. so we invite you to come and play along with us over the challenge blog and share your cards featuring Pumpkins or anything that spells Autumn for you.

Well, the name of this challenge blog is SHOPPING OUR STASH and oh boy!! I totally did this to create this card.
I have a box with a whole bunch of nameless red rubber stamps, this one seems to have been attached to a woodblock that I most likely peeled off and discarded back when wasn't thinking of blogging at all. I regret doing this but woodblock stamps take up a lot of space, maybe that's the reason I did it.
I'm going to create more cards with using the stamps in this box, I think they all deserve to be inked up.
I stamped the image with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed it, then colored with SU re-inkers.
This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like. 

The sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "Tulips for Friends", the flower from a retired 2006 SU set called "Reason to Smile", brought back in 2012 for a limited time.

I hope you get inspired to come and play with us at the SHOPPING OUR STASH gallery, we can't wait to see what you create.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments always make my day.

Retro Rubber Tic, Tac, Toe Fun!!!!!

No photo description available.

Hello again everyone: Now, don't you love Tic, Tac, Toe challenges? I certainly do, you have a lot of options to choose from, all fun and easy to do so, come on and play with my RETRO RUBBER teammates and me in our gallery!!
Here is my card, I used the bottom horizontal line "Die Cut or Punch, Monochrome and Birthday".

I used the beautiful and retired SU set called "Every Moment", (2010-2011).
Stamped the image on Drawing paper after die cutting the panels, colored it with a few Prismacolor pencils.
The embossing folder is also from Stampin' Up! but I can't recall the name.
The sentiment is from Flourishes.
This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The border is from another SU set called Bordering Blooms (2014-2015 retired)
The sentiment is from a Flourishes set called Lenten Rose.

I hope you come and play along with us at the RETRO RUBBER gallery.
Please remember to use at least one stamp that is ONE YEAR OLD and if you can, share how old it is or how long you've owned it.
