Anyway, I had time yesterday to go through my current Stampin' Up! catalog and track everything that is retiring, getting ready to make room for different goodies to come! I checks on the Friday Mash-up FM207 challenge and it was perfect for this task!! A sketch challenge using retiring (or retired Stampin' Up! products)!
After I went through and figured out what was retiring, it was easier to decide which stamps to use for this challenge! Of course, I just had to use the 2013-2015 In Colors since those are certainly retiring! I will miss Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar. But, I am so looking forward to the new 2015-2017 In Colors!
I used the Positively Chevron background stamp, Yippie Skippee for the greeting and Stippled Blossoms for the flowers and leaves.
For the flowers I stamped the bottom layer with Crisp Cantaloupe and the top layer with Strawberry Slush. I wasn't sure how well these colors would go together, but I love the effect! For the leaves, for the bottom layer I used Pistachio Pudding and the top layer is Wild Wasabi.
I used a clip from the Essentials Hardware collection and Coastal Cabana baker's twine.
The only items I used on this care that are not retiring are the Whisper White cardstock and the Wild Wasabi ink.
Turned out great if I do say so myself! now to clean out the rest of the retiring products to make room for new stuff! Only 1 month to go!!
Happy creating everyone!
