Some of my faves...

As I was going through the list of retiring stamps the other day, several of the stamp sets on the list tugged at my heart a little, as it's kind of sad to see them retire.  Several of the stamp sets have become my favorite and in some cases...my "go to" stamps for various projects.

So I thought it would be fun to take a look over the next week or so at some past projects that I made using some of the stamp sets that  have been slated to retire at the end of January, starting with my absolute favorite stamp set that's retiring...Remarkable Wreath.

Besides just being an overall great versatile stamp set, I especially love how perfect this stamp set has been for me to demonstrate just how great Close To My Heart true clear stamps really are.  Here are a few projects that I've made in the past year (some previously posted, some not).

These are some of the quick make-n-takes that I offered at past vendor shows that used now retired CTMH Roxy and Elemental papers.

I used the stamp set to create a tag for a gift box that housed a fun tri-shutter card.  You can see that post here.
The next card is one that I pretty much cased straight from page 88 of the 2011 Fall/Winter Idea Book with a few changes.  First, I made mine a 6x6 card rather than the smaller (I think) 4x4 card.  I also used Elemental pattern paper instead of plain cardstock; Kraft cardstock flicked with Chocolate ink instead of plain Bamboo cardstock; flower instead of berries on the wreath; ribbon instead of hemp; and I added a couple of features, namely the buttons and the distressed sentiment matting.
If you'd like to own this stamp set or any others, head on over to my website.  And remember, there's a special going on right now.  Make a $35 purchase and get the "Whooo's Your Valentine" Kit.  Learn more about that offer here.

Until next time...

    1. Thanks Desire! I cut the cards using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. Makes it so simple to do. :)
