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.
