Remember to use a stamp older than a year and you must include the age (or approximate age) of the stamp in your blog post. After all – we want to give these old stamps some love!

I find it interesting that you want stamps that are at least a year old to be used on your cards, yet you have design members who seem to think Feb. 2019 is a year old. I was interested in this challenge and have taken it a time or two because beleive me, I have stamps that are 20 years old, and it certainly is fun to use some of those oldie but goodies, but it just find it ironic that even your dt does not seem to follow the rules. Just saying what I have observed.

This was an oversight and the blog in question has been corrected. Our design team does follow the rules set by RRBC. This was a simple mistake where the wrong year was posted. The stamps used are, in fact, from February 2018 and are over a year old. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We appreciate that you visited our design team blogs! Happy crafting!!


Sketches are well outside my comfort zone but I had a go - thanks for the challenge!
