Thought I'd take a little wander through the vaults today and show you some projects featuring some of the stamp sets on this year's retiring list.
I think this is up there on my list of favourite cards I've made - it uses the gorgeous dragonfly from the Nature's Nest stamp set. ($39.95 Page 78)
Next up is a retiring stamp set and punch combo - Butterfly Prints (pg 66) and the coordinating Butterfly Punch (pg 152, at 25% off it is now $25.46, the one in my pic is the old style but if you order it you'll get the new style) The card was CASED from my friend Nikki - waving a little hello.
You can see one of my favourite little sets there - Pocket Silhouettes. (Pg 75) I do love a good silhouette stamp. Here it is again.
I didn't spot this one on my first few looks through the list - the Medallion stamp. LOVE this one - definitely going straight into my 'keep even though it is retiring' pile. On special at 25% off so just $25.46. I'll be most surprised if this isn't on the sold out list soon. Page 99
My cute little Dasher is on the list at 25% off so just $11.21. Page 15.
While we're talking retiring Christmas sets, I always did have a soft spot for Holiday Lineup. Page 27.
Did you spot the discounted items on the accessories list? Ink pads 25% off, quite a few In Colour 2010 - 2012 products (while they last) at 40% off, Confetti White cardstock is on the way out and at 25% off is now just $12.94 for a pack of 40 sheets, 25 - 40% off lots of DSP (patterned paper), Christmas fabric packs at 75% off - just $4.99, 25 - 40% off some punches.
Heads Up: If you have our fiskars cutter, you might want to grab some replacement cutting and/or scoring blades too as these products are retiring to make way for a very groovy new cutter.
Heads Up 2: (Thank you Nanette!) The Stampin' Scrub is getting a revamp. If you need a spare or replacement pair of Stampin' Scrub pads grab those while they're here too. The new ones are larger and won't fit your existing scrub. Those pads last for yonks though.
FAQ 1: I've had a few questions about the ink pads. Don't worry they're not all disappearing, just getting a revamp to a new firm foam design. Same great colours.
FAQ 2: Yes if your order (or orders for you and some friends) adds to $300 you qualify for hostess benefits which means you get $50 to spend on either the hostess products or just anything else left on your wish list.
Rather Random Thought Of The Day: Anyone else quite looking forward to the end of the Olympics? I love love love them (which is quite strange really for someone as unsporty as myself) but must say I am quite looking forward to getting my brain back. It seems to have morphed into a sleep deprived, addled, over caffeinated state. Fun though isn't it. Go Athletes! Go Aussies!
Happy Stamping, or TV Viewing, or both perhaps!
