Throwback Thursday

Hi All! I am so glad I came across the Retro Rubber Challenge blog. I have quite a few older stamps that I just refuse to part with. (Yes, some have never been used.) For the current Retro Rubber Challenge #166, I pulled out some beautiful flowers from the Bloom with Hope stamp set. I think this set dates back to 2014.

The theme of this challenge is Dog Days of Summer. For me that is the time when we are picking the end of summer's produce. This week we will be making "V8" otherwise known as Bloody Mary Mix.

I chose Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow for my card. The flowers and sentiment all came from the Bloom with Hope stamp set. The background image is from the current Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso.  

I found some old calypso Coral embellishments and some recently retired Mossy Meadow braided trim to complete my card. The sentiment was die cut from the current Tailor Made Tags dies.

I hope you enjoy this blast from the past. This set still holds up and is not much different from some current products. 

Happy Stamping!
