Hello Stampers! Don't you think this cute little tub of goodies that I received as a Christmas present
is the cutest thing that you have ever seen? I even had candies in the tin and a bag of cookies in there! This is a gift from one of my preschoolers. Drew is the sweetest little boy (and has the vocabulary of an adult)! Thank you Angela!
Today I wanted to show you some cards made from some of the stamp sets that SU! is getting ready to retire. You can see the list of retiring stamp sets by clicking on the picture at the very bottom of my sidebar on the left hand side. Click on the picture of a bunch of stamp sets stacked up. You can also go on to my website and look under promotions. These retiring stamp sets are only available through
This card uses two of the retiring sets. I received this card as a swap from Missi Hackman. Here's the recipe:
Stamp set - Pretty Peony, Wonderful Words
Cardstock - Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, White
Stamp pad - Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Apricot Appeal, Versamark
Accessories - Gold embossing powder, heat gun, Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon
This card is one that I made from a retired Simply Scrappin' Kit. I like to use them to make cards also because everything coordinates so beautifully! In the Simply Scrappin' Kits you get patterned paper, coordinating cardstock, and coordinating cardstock stickers. They are great!
Here's the recipe for this card:
Stamp set - Wonderful Words
Cardstock - Sage Shadow, Barely Banana
Stamp pad - Black
Accessories - In Full Bloom (retired) Simply Scrappin' Kit
I'll show you more cards using the retiring stamp sets tomorrow. If you haven't gone to see the list, do so!!! You'll find tons that you have to have!!!
Happy Stampin' and TTFN!
