Good Bye Floral Frames. I'm gonna miss you.

This cute little guy's mane was made with the Floral Frames Collection Framelits.  I'm so sad Stampin' Up! is retiring these.  I really loved them.  If you want a set, better act quick.  I made this for a Kid's Card, card swap a couple of years ago.

Beautiful Ride

Beautiful Ride is a very versatile stamp set.  Everything from moving to a new place, to getting married, to just being in love.  This stamp set has it all.  I couldn't resist the funky paint job on the car.  I used the retiring Stampin' Markers to color in the car.  Don't forget the retiring In Colors when you are planning your order.  The In Color merchandise usually sells out really fast.  If you haven't picked up yours, you might want to do so as soon as possible.

For Your Country

It's that time of year again.  Stampin' Up! is retiring a lot of stamps and other product from their line to make way for the new goodies coming in the new catalog.  I will miss this stamp set a lot.  I really haven't used it much, but I am very sad to see it go.

I started with a piece of Old Olive cardstock (5 1/2 x 4 1/4) and stamped around the edges with Always Artichoke ink using the Times Textures Stamp Set.  I used a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock (5 x 3 3/4).  I used the boots, dog tags, and helmet to make the background using the stamp off method.  The Always Artichoke is such a dark color I did 3 stamp offs before stamping on the cardstock.  I used Always Artichoke with no stamp off for the focal image and the sentiment.

If you are interested in this stamp set, go to my online store and purchase it before it sells out.  When a product hits the retirement list, it is as supplies last.  Don't forget to stock up on cardstock.  I have heard they are increasing the price in the new catalog.
