2 Retiring Stamp Sets and 3 Challenges All In One

Yes, you read it correctly. It's time to say goodbye to some stamp sets and accessories. Click here to see the retiring stamp sets, decor elements, and accessories.

I'll be very sad to say goodbye to these two stamp sets.
Say It With Scallops was the Ronald McDonald House stamp set for this year. I totally love it. I think it's the best set for RMH that we've ever had. And Beautiful Borders is such an amazing set. It has beautiful border images and wonderful sentiments. I will greatly miss these two.

I've combined 3 challenges for this card. The first two challenges are from Stampin' Addicts (SA). I love this site because it's SUO, which mean Stampin' Up! Only. Handy, when you're looking for ideas for your new stamp sets. It's a fairly young website, so feel free to add to their galleries. I used Sketch Challenge 14 and Accessories Challenge 6.3, linked for your convenience. The color combo is from Splitcoaststampers (SCS). This is another website that I frequent. You can click on the SU! galleries to find some ideas for the stamp sets that you own. Today's Clean and Simple challenge on SCS was to use Kraft, Pink/Coral, and one coordinating color of our choice. I wanted to do a quick card, so punched out designer paper squares and white. It went really fast! The small strip of white at the bottom is the leftover from the eyelet punch. I just can't throw that away. It's a perfect, small strip. I popped the scallop square up on dimensionals and then popped up the "for you" sentiment on dimensionals also. The other thing on this card that I'm not ready to say goodbye to is the Riding Hood Red Taffeta. I've gone through multiple spools of this ribbon. Gorgeous! And it also coordinates well with Ruby Red, so if you like it, grab a spool before they're gone.

Supplies: Beautiful Borders & Say It With Scallops stamp sets. Kraft, Whisper White, and Riding Hood Red cardstocks. Bella Rose DSP. Pink Pirouette Classic Ink. Eyelet Border, 1 1/4", 1 3/8", and Scallop Square Punches. Riding Hood Red Taffeta & Mini Glue Dots.

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station. I'm so glad you came to visit. Until next time!
