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!

Are you on Facebook?  If you share our challenge on your Facebook page, we will happily share your post!

To be considered for a Top Pick and to receive comments - be sure to link your card below!

Be sure to play along with us! This challenge ends December 17, 2021.


We are excited to welcome Julie Gearinger as our Guest Designer!  Julie blogs at Stamping With Julie Gearinger and the talent abounds.  Each time I visit Julie's blog, I am amazed at the beauty that she creates.  It all looks so simple but wowza!  Case in point...this card.  Lots of pieces put together perfectly!  Be sure to pop over to Stamping With Julie Gearinger and leave a comment!


Enjoy the inspiration of the design team!
