Retro Rubber - Challenge 1 - Use Your Oldest Stamp...


Welcome to the first ever Retro Rubber Challenge. 

Retro Rubber is run by Jane and Katie. The idea is to dust off any stamps over a year old and have a play. I love it, I certainly have some stamps that have.. ahem.. fallen from favour..

To get you into the swing of things this weeks challenge is 'Use Your Oldest Stamp' -

Here are the guidelines - 
  • Use older stamps. We suggest stamps older than 1 year. 
  • Follow the challenge given for the week. 
  • Post your creation to your blog or online gallery. 
  • Link back to the blog using the InLinkz by the due date. 
  • Enter as many times as you like. 
There is a new challenge every other Tuesday, hope you join in the fun,
Challenge Due Dates will be the 2nd Friday after the challenge is posted.  The winners will be posted on the Sunday after that. 
It's going to be lots of fun and I am super excited to be a part of the DT.

I knew immediately which of my oldest stamps I wanted to work with.

This stamp set was my very first set of clear stamps, I can't even remember where I bought them from!

It was such fun to use the stamps again. I kept the whole card very simple and just added some bling at the end to spice it up.


Now it's your turn to dig out those early stamps and have a play, but first go over to Retro Rubber, meet the fabulous design team and view their gorgeous creations.


p.s Yes I am posting from Mexico :)
