Retro Rubber Challenge #62...Use Flowers...


Time for another awesome challenge with the Retro Rubber team.

I have a weakness for flower stamps, so my choice here was VAST!! I finally settled on an old fave by Stamping Bella - Pippa Loves to Plant. This was my first online purchase when we moved to NYC in 2013!! It was on sale at Walmart LOL.

Because the stamp is so detailed, I kept my card super simple. I really only had to colour the stamp (using Distress Inks and an aquabrush) and add the papers..
I used a MFT stitched rounded rectangle die for the stamp panel and I used a crop-a-dile on the pink paper to get matching rounded corners.

Your turn to show us what you can do with your older flower stamps, but first pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things my teammates have made..

Challenge ends May 19th. Don't forget to tell us the age of your stamp, that is part of the fun (and our rules) of our challenge and please only enter 10 challenges including Retro Rubber.



  1. Wonderful coloring of this sweet image. Treating the rest of the card in a CAS style is perfect!

  2. Love your colouring on this card, so sweet. Must try and play along, I'm sure there must be one stamp in my stash that's older than a year and has flowers on it.... Who am I kidding?! Cara x

  3. This is really the first stamp set you bought in the US? How amazing is that! I am so glad you brought it out and shared this wonderful card with us. Such a sweet card for spring!
