Retired List Blog Hop - ILWS

Hello and welcome to the In Love With Stamping Retired List Blog Hop today.

If you are following the Blog Hop, you should have arrived here from the lovely talented Julie's blog.

We are giving you the last chance to see some of our favourtie Stampin' Up! stamp sets which are being discontinued and to give you the last chance to order anything you fancy from the Retired Stamp List before they disappear for good (they are selling out fast) - once they are all sold - they're gone!!! :(

You can only order Stampin' Up! products from a Demonstrator, such as myself.

My favourite stamp sets that I am sharing with you from the Stampin' Up! Retired Stamp List today is the wonderfully versatile Baroque Motifs set 113490 (6 stamps), Contempo Christmas set 120594 (4 stamps)  and Welcome Christmas Stamp Set 120597 (5 stamps).

This first card is a Gate-fold card in Stampin' Up! Old Olive coloured Cardstock. I've stamped the baubles and sentiment from Contempo Christmas stamp set in Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Ink and the branches were from the Baroque Motifs set.

This top-fold card is made using the Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler Card stock and I've stamped one of the images from Welcome Christmas stamp set in white ink and embossed with white embossing powder. The Joy sentiment stamp is from this same stamp set too.

Here's another card in Real Red Card stock. I've attached a piece of Stampin' Up! Vellum Card Stock to the card using Clear Rhinestone Brads, then stamped and embossed the sentiment and trees in white. These are from the Contempo Christmas stamp set.The shimmery area at the bottom was made by scribbling a 2-way glue pen and sprinkling Dazzling Diamonds glitter over the glued area.

My final card for today is made with Baja Breeze Card stock. The window was made using a Stampin' Up! square punch and backed with Stampin' Up! window sheet. I've stamped an image from Welcome Christmas behind the window in black ink.  The windowsill was glittered with Dazzling Diamonds and the Merry Christmas sentiment is from Contempo Christmas and punch out with the large oval punch, backed onto some Island Indigo card and matching ribbon at the top.

If you'd like to order any Stampin' Up! products through me, just drop me a note here.
