A Fond Farewell: Stampin' Addicts Retiring Sets Blog Hop

Goodbyes are always hard, so my friends and I at Stampin' Addicts have decided to hostess a blog hop featuring Retiring Stamp Sets! Did you come from Mary's Blog featuring Circle Circus? Maybe you are starting here. Your next stop will be at Heidi's blog featuring Forever Young and you can hop your away back around to my blog again.



My set is Elements of Style, a set that I have used many, many times for beautiful cards that seem to put themselves together. With that in mind, I have three cards to share!



 The chalkboard technique is one of my new favorites and this set is made for it!

 The front of this card started for a picture frame, but it looked too confined in there, so I brought it out into the open!
Beautiful Blues. My stamping group loved this one last Tuesday!


I'll post recipes on my blog Monday, so come back! Until then, go forward to Heidi's tribute to Forever Young.  If you want to go backwards, check out Mary's Circle Circus projects. If you get lost along the way, feel free to check out the thread at Stampin' Addicts, a great site for all things stamping.



Happy Stamping!

  1. Very pretty cards. Looks beautiful stamped on the First Edition dsp and colored in. But I think my favorite is the purple stamped background. (And I don't even normally get excited about purple! lol)

  4. All of these cards are lovely, but my favorite is the blue one. I just love that spray of flowers, and especially the way you stamped and colored it on the First Edition paper!

  5. Beautiful cards Sara! I love the look of the blues on the First Edition DSP (sure will miss it), and the beautiful fussy-cutting of the Eggplant bird on the Wisteria frame. I'm going to miss this set, a lot.
