Retro Rubber 78 - Design Team Card

Jane has some wonderful challenges for us this year and our first challenge of the year is a fantastic one: white on white with one neutral colour allowed.

The only rules for our challenges are simple: use at least one stamp that's older than a year, give us the approximate age of that stamp and don't link up to more than ten challenges.

In fact, the dies and all the stamps in this card are older than a year. Floral Phrases came out in the Annual Catalogue in 2016. Bloomin' Love stamps and dies came out in the Occasion Catalogue in 2016. I've gone for a simple but romantic occasion card.

Here's a closer view...

You can join us up until 26 January, so get out your old stamps and show them some love. We'd love to see what you do!

I'm going to enter this card at Inspire.Create Challenge where the order of the day is a love theme.

Update: Delighted to be a Runner Up at Inspire. Create this week.

If you live anywhere in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up demonstrator, I'd love to help you with ideas and Stampin' Up products. If you would like a copy of the new Special Occasions Catalogue or the Sale-a-bration brochure and don't have a demonstrator, then contact me. You can message me through my Facebook page, linked in the sidebar of this blog or leave a comment below.
