Retro Rubber Challenge Card - Wish Big Candles with Hero Arts


Hello everyone.  TGIF!!!  The start to another weekend.  Today and tomorrow we have our friend Ana Stela in the store teaching classes using a scoring board and papers to make some really cute boxes.  On Sunday I am going to try and find an arts & crafts fair that I heard about that is about 45 minutes from here. Hope it's good!  But let's see if the weather cooperates.  

Today I have a card I made for this week's challenge over at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  I used a Hero Arts stamp called Wish Big Candles (has to be more than 5 years old) with some cardstock from my stash.  Below is the sketch we had to use for inspiration.  



For my card, I started with an A2 card base, top folding, to which I adhered a piece of cardstock from my stash.  I love this design because it allows for color around the whole card.  


Then I adhered a piece of red cardstock - 4" x 5.25".


Then I cut a piece of white cardstock, 3 7/8" x 5 1/8", stamped the candles using a stamp positioner and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. adhered it to the card front, colored the candles in with Copic markers and then applied various Stickles to some of the candles.


After the Stickles dried, I stamped the phrase on another piece of white cardstock, trimmed it, adhered it to a piece of red cardstock, and then adhered both pieces to the card front using pop dots.  Done!!

I hope you liked this card using older stamps and papers.  If you have older stamps that need some loving I hope you will check out the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  If you want to upload your own creation for this week's challenge, you have until March 11th to do so.  Until next time - 

Hugs from Brasil -

  4. Great birthday card! Love your colorful candles! I have to look up Stickles now - never heard of that! You used the DSP wonderfully since it really adds color and detail but without taking away from the focal point. Thank you for playing with Retro Rubber and hope you will join us again soon!

  10. Hi Michael! I am so glad to see you back with us! And I was so busy staring at the bright candles that I never even noticed the paper in the background! I find it ironic that the number of candles match my exact age! LOL! A very long time ago! Thanks for playing along with Retro Rubber!
