Retro Rubber Challenge 81 - Design Team Card

I hope you are as excited as I am about this sketch of Claire's! I think it's great and has just so many possibilities! Here at Retro Rubber Challenge, we love to get out our old stamps. If you do too then this is the challenge for you. Our rules are simple: use at least one stamp older than a year, give us an approximate age for your old stamp and don't link up to more than ten challenges in total.

As I was looking through my shelf of retired or older stamps, I came across Kinda Eclectic. I was so pleased to be reminded of it because it was once one of my favourites. It came out around the time I started seriously stamping: it was in the 2014-15 Stampin' Up Annual Catalogue.

I even dug out some brad bases and candy dots for this butterfly. I'd forgotten how great they were to use. At least linen twine - another of my favourites - is still current.

Anyway, at Retro Rubber Challenge, we love to see what you do with your trip down the stamp version of memory lane. You have two weeks to join us. Pop over to the site to see the rest of the Design Team's creations.

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. Sale-a-bration is on and there's a new Special Occasion Catalogue out. Please message me through my Facebook page, linked in the sidebar of this blog or leave a comment below. 

If you live in New Zealand and you would like to join my Stampin' Up team, message me for a chat. And, of course, you can shop with me from anywhere in New Zealand.

  1. Gorgeous CAS card, Jan! I love this stamp set so much and you have made me wish to play with it again. Your colors are perfect for our spring weather and we are finally seeing the sun again here in Michigan. Hope all is well on your side of the world!
