While I've been cleaning out my crafting room I've come across several cards that I have not posted that contain retiring stamp sets and/or other retiring product. Here a couple of my favorites.
This was one of my favorite Christmas Cards! I used the Dasher stamp set, Basic Black card stock. Brushed Gold card stock, the Petals-a-Plenty Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Real Red card stock, Black 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, an Antique Brad, VersaMark ink, Black, Silver and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, and the sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.
I just love the effect of this rainbow embossing technique! You stamp your image in VersaMark and then sprinkle different colors of embossing powder on different sections of your image. I love the black, gold, and silver on the Brushed Gold card stock!
This a la carte Dasher stamp is going to be missed! I'm also going to miss the 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon...what an elegant touch to this card with the Antique Brad. I'm very happy that the Antique Brads are not retiring!
I guess since I started with Christmas I'll show you another Christmas card. This one is a little older and has Designer Series Paper from the 2010 Holiday Mini Catalog.
Isn't it adorable? This stamp set is Jolliest Time of Year. It was one of the first Christmas sets I purchased when becoming a demonstrator and I've used it every Christmas! The snowman image is so whimsical, animated, and just fun!
Here's a close up of him. I used Stampin' Write Markers to color the image. Just a reminder that most of the markers will no longer be available individually. The new catalog will have all of the current markers, but most will have to be purchased in sets. If you only need specific colors place your order soon before they are gone!
I used the 2-Way Glue Pen to add some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to make the "snow" sparkle and shine.
