Flowers of Gratitude Retro Stamps for #rrcb178

Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today I'm using one of my favourite old springtime stamps for the Retro Rubber Challenge #178.  The theme for this challenge is 'Anything Goes' and that proved a bit difficult for me.  Anything, meant I could choose 'anything' - and wow I changed my mind a lot before settling on this one - yes, I'm a little like 'Dory' with my old stamps. 

Please click here to visit the Retro Rubber Challenge blog post and enjoy the inspiration, then go dig out an old stamp and make a card. Enjoy!

Assembly & Trix:

*  This stamp was a favourite of mine in 2005 when, I think, I earned it as a Sale-A-Bration stamp, does anyone else remember, were SAB stamps purple rubber in 2005?  At the time I coloured it with pencil crayons, this time I get to use Stamping Blends Markers in Just Jade, Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo & So Saffron.

*  The other old fav I used, is the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder, it leaves a subtle linen look.  I've added it here to the Abstract Beauty DSP, #158039 on a Just Jade 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base.

*  The sentiment is from Happy & Heartfelt, #158005, the stamp set sentiment is in the inside says 'Flowers of gratitude bloom forever in the heart' perfect for Mother's Day :)

What is your favourite retiring colour?  


Enjoy & have a super day!


  1. Beautiful, Lesley! These little flowers are perfect, and I love their color update, lol. I think that far back, it was our Hostess sets that came in purple - I have Fashion Statements from that year, and it's purple, too, and too large a set for SAB, I'm guessing, lol. Such a beautiful design, and sweet subtle background! Thanks so much for playing at Retro Rubber!

  2. LOL, I know..."Anything Goes" gives you a wide range, doesn't it? Sometimes we need FEWER choices, not more! Anyway, I love your little trio of flowers and they're perfect for spring! I'm glad to see you gave lots of your retired sets some love! Thanks for sharing this with us at Retro Rubber this week!


Thanks for taking the time to write a comment, you've made my day!
