Retiring Pennants Parade

I hope you ordered all you needed while the shipping was free this week and before the things you wanted sold out.  I hope I did too!!  Stampin' Up has been really hustling this week in getting the packages shipped out.  I put two orders in on Monday and one on Tuesday.  I received one of the orders today and the other two will arrive on Monday!  Usually they take several days longer than that.  And I placed an order late this afternoon and it is already in "picking" so I should get it sometime next week.  

I pulled out my retiring stamps from my current collection today and went through my retiring stamps and really cleared a lot of them out.  I will be putting them in the used stamp sale Saturday, May 3 at Stampers Alley in Mooresville.  Now I just have to sit down and price them - the part I don't like to do since it is not an exact science.  I had so many retired stamps that I haven't wanted to part with but I am just running out of space and I really don't use them that much anymore.

Here are a few cards made with some retiring items.

This card uses the following retired items:

  • Gumball Green card stock
  • Pennants Parade stamp set
  • Gumball Green Dahlias
  • Itty Bitty Punch pack (I'm really going to miss it!)
  • Houndstooth  embossing folder
  • Ink for pennants:  Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals

Another card using Pennants Parade

The card above is one I received in a swap.  Unfortunately, I don't know whose card it is but it is a great one!  The Lattice Die is the retiring items in this one.  I'm holding on to my die because I like it so much.

This is a simple card to make but makes a big Wow!  I either got this in a swap or shoebox - can't remember!  The embossing folders - Flower Garden and Stripes - are both retiring.

I'm really struggling with my vision.  On the days I play cards - Hand and Foot, bridge, mahjongg - my eyes get sooo tired they almost hurt.  Today was Hand & Foot.  I go back and forth between using my readers and no glasses so don't know which is the best.  I am not supposed to go back to my eye doctor until June but I think I will be going sooner than that and see about getting some glasses.

Card Shares

I've been trying to go through some of the swaps I received this summer - from Quarterly, Regionals and Convention!  They are getting a little overwhelming!  Thought I'd share a few with you this morning.

 This is a card that we made at SU Regionals in August.  It uses the frame from Four Frames (pg 141).  This is embarresing to say but I can't tell you where the "love" stamp comes from.  I have looked in the catalog 3 times and can't find it.  If you find it, leave me a comment and let me know!!

EDIT:  Found the stamp set!  It's in the mini catalog on page 40 - You Are Loved.  So pretty!

 This card is a double easel card (see below).  It uses Up, Up & Away (pg 63) and bright primary colors.  The clouds are sponged on for the background.  A great card!!

 Another cheery card using Pennant Parade (pg 69).  I have seen so many great cards using this stamp set.  You can make Christmas trees, party hats, ice cream cones, banners, etc with this set.  It is very versatile.
A punched flower - so simple but looks great.

Another card using the Pennant Parade set.

A pretty card using Aviary (pg 83).  This is another set that I have seen used in different ways to make a WOW card.
 Hope you have enjoyed these cards and have gotten some ideas for your own card making.

Wait till you see my Halloween card tomorrow for the Stamping Queens challenge.  I made it with MDS and I love it!!
