Challenge 16 | Tie It On

Are you enjoying summer?  Coffee on the back deck?  Listening to the birds and watching the wildlife?  That is what I'm enjoying on these fun summer mornings. 

What are you enjoying?


NOTICE:  Before we get to our challenge, we need to quickly address a little housekeeping.  Our main goal at Retro Rubber is to pull out our stamps older than one year.  Before, we didn't always push that, but now we will be. 

We would like you to use stamps that are older than one year on all challenges.  If you could, please comment as to how old your stamp is, or where you got it.  If we feel that you are not following all of our challenge guidelines, you will be disqualified from our challenge. 

Your cards must also be new, not something you have created in the past. 

We hope that you join us and pull out those retro stamps! 



Our new challenge is to Tie It On - use either ribbon or twine on your card or project.   That's pretty simple peeps!!

This week, Darnell is joining us as Guest Designer.  Check out her blog HERE.  Here is her take on this week's challenge.

And now, it's your turn:

•Use older stamps. We suggest stamps older than 1 year.
•Follow the challenge given for the time period.
•Create a new creation to your blog or online gallery. (No backlinking.) If you use an online gallery, please use the Keyword RRBC16.  Please turn off Word Verification. 
•Link back to the blog using the InLinkz by June 19th  
•Enter as many times as you like.
Link up your creations for our challenge - Ribbon or Twine

Congrats, Darnell! Love your card. Love all the cards posted today. :)


Love your card, Darnell. I decided to check out this challenge and added a card.


Congrats, Darnell! I got so excited to use my old dog stamp set that I forgot that I used a new set too so back to the drawing board! LOL!


Fabulous Design Team samples! This is my first visit to Retro Rubber and I am tickled and charmed by the "retro" photos of the design team. I have loads of retro rubber on my shelves and I'm looking forward to playing along soon!

Thanks for the challenge and inspiration! I had fun digging through my retro stamps.
