As you are all well aware of, the retirement list made it's huge debut last week. It's an exciting and yet sad time of year. So excited to see the new catalog filled with new stamps and goodies and really sad to see some of my favorite stamp sets set sail to enjoy their retirement. This week at Sisters in Stamping we are focusing on those great sets and sharing with you some of our favorite sets that are heading out in just a few short weeks.
BTW, don't you love the title of today's post? I had fun with the alliteration almost by accident. I had it all typed and realized I couldn't just say goodbye since the rest of the words were all "s" Yes, I was chuckling to myself. I think I could work for Stampin' Up!'s home office in naming colors after this. LOL
The bountiful borders stamp set is one I wanted right away but then set it aside and didn't use it nearly as much as I wanted to. I love the bold flower because it packs such a punch with minimal effort. After all this time, I believe you know that's exactly the kind of stamps I love. None of the fussy coloring for me. Now fussy cutting on the other hand, I'm all over that. I know some of you are rolling your eyes just reading that because you roll those eyes when I make you fussy cut. Good thing we have so many great dies and punches to help out with so many of the stamp sets.
This card is super quick to put together but is so nice and it's all due to the multiple layers on the card that are creating a nice visual. Two colors of cardstock, black and vanilla. Three colors of ink, calypso coral, cucumber crush and basic black and one designer series paper.
I didn't even use the big shot. I know that's hard to believe (even for me). So this card shows you, you can still do quick and easy with minimal amount of supplies. Hope you enjoy it.
Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping for more ideas using retiring stamp sets.

I also want to let you know about a SALE that is exclusively through me. Today and tomorrow only, place a order of $50 or more and receive one of the past paper pumpkin kits for FREE as a gift from me. If you order $100 of product, you will get 2 past paper pumpkin kits. The paper pumpkin kits are great to craft when you don't have a lot of time, don't feel like being creative and just want someone else to do the thinking for you, great to take with you on a trip when you have a few minutes of down time and just because they really are great.
