It is Retro Rubber Tuesday! Oh, how I love to play with my older stamp sets and I know you will enjoy it, too! We are in the second week of our floral challenge so you only have till this Friday to submit a card. This is the week where I enjoy applying the challenge to a new stamp and, in this week’s case, it is also retiring. I have will be keeping this one! We all have our favorite floral stamp sets (I literally have dozens!) so ink one up today and play along!

I am knee deep in graduation preparations now but had some time to make Sarah’s two best friends’ graduation cards. I decided to use the colors of the universities that they will be attending instead of high school colors. The first one I made is for Rubee, who will be attending the University of Massachusetts and their colors are maroon and black. Here is her card:

Love is Kindness, Crazy about You

I really wanted to make a pretty card for this wonderful girl! Love is Kindness just seemed like a natural stamp to use and I hadn’t used it yet. Yikes! I really do love it, so will be using it again for those special occasions. The stamped image was watercolored with blender pens.

Class of 2015, Stippled Blossoms


This card is for Sarah’s best friend, Sameen, who will be attending Michigan State University and their school colors are green and white. I thought it needed another color so I added Cherry Cobbler because it’s Sameen’s favorite color. I added the flowers from Stippled Blossoms and fussy-cut them out.
