Retro Rubber Challenge Blog



There's a new challenge blog in town! It's called Retro Rubber Challenge! You need to use older stamps, preferably ones at least 1 year old. 

This week's challenge is to use your oldest stamp. Now I have a LOT of stamps. I don't know if this is the oldest, but it certainly is one of my oldest. I kept "2-Step Tropical Blossoms" from 2002 by Stampin' Up! because .... well, because of it's Tropical Blossoms! Our daughter lives in Hawaii and I've used the blooms on cards and scrapbooks for all these years. Lately it's gotten a little dusty, so I was glad to use it. The sentiment is a slightly newer stamp, but I don't know who made it.

I challenge YOU to look through your rubber stamps and use them as often as you can! I hope you will visit Retro Rubber and see all of the new creations made with old stamps!
