Retro Rubber #99..Anything Goes..


Welcome to another awesome Retro Rubber challenge.

It's that time again for another fantastic anything goes challenge..

I have made no secret of my love obsession with MFT flower stamps..

As I have several sets I thought it would be fun to pull a few of them out for this challenge.

I used a Paper Smooches 'Denim and Daisies' set for the pocket die, the sentiment and the small leaves. I've had this set since 2016 and it gets a ton of use. The pocket was die-cut out of felt, from a set of felt sheets that my work colleagues gave me for my birthday - so much fun to use.

I used x3 of my MFT flower sets 'Large Desert Bouquet (2016)' 'Bold Blooms (2017)' and 'Pretty Posies (2017). Everything was stamped using Tsukineko Dew Drop inks. I love the rich colour these inks give.

I have the matching dies for all the sets, so I stamped everything and then die-cut them all and stamped leaves and dots directly onto the white panel before assembling my bouquet.

I love how bright and happy it is, just what I need in this dreary dull time of year!

Looking forward to see which older stamp(s) you use, don't forget to pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things the DT have made.

Challenge ends March 9th.

Don't forget to tell us the age of your stamp, that is part of the fun of our challenge and please only enter 10 challenges including Retro Rubber.



  1. Claire, I can see where the obsession comes from! Lovely set and I love your pocket of flowers. Who couldn't help but smile to receive it?

  2. What a bright and cheery greeting, like you said for a more dreary time of year! That pocket die is cute especially with the flowers poking out!

  3. Well, you are so right, these beautiful and colorful flowers really bring warmth and sunny thoughts this time of the year, today is really cloudy and cold, the beautiful Autumn foliage is almost gone from the trees and hauled to the curve to be picked up soon so yes, this card truly brings a smile.

  4. I have a bunch of MFT flower stamps & dies which really need to be used! Love your card--thanks for inspiring me!

  5. Such a happy card that the recipient will surely treasure :)
