Retiring Sets Blog Hop

Posted by on April 27, 2012

Hello and welcome to the Stampin’ Addicts Retiring Stamp Sets blog hop! You may have just come from Carmen’s blog, where she showed you the super cute Under the Stars stamp set, or you may be starting here. Either way, all of the blogs link in a circle and you will be able to find your way back to wherever you started. The most important thing to keep in mind is that none of these stamp sets will be available after May 30th!

I am excited to be featuring the stamp set Season of Friendship. I love this set! It is my go to set for Fall cards, and for this first card I have to show you, I have used it in this traditional way. I used the Rock & Roll technique to ink up the leaves. (Please note that Poppy Parade is one of the retiring In Colors, so anything with Poppy Parade in it will be gone!)

Stamps: Season of Friendship
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Poppy Parade
Paper: Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper
Other: Poppy Parade Poly Ribbon, Labels Collection Framelits

Since the tree comes bare, it is easy to dress it up for any season. For my second card, I used some embossing powder and torn paper to make a fun winter scene.

Stamps: Season of Friendship
Ink: Early Espresso, VersaMark
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Other: White Embossing Powder, Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder

My third card uses the tree in an entirely different way. I turned it on its side to make a perch for the owl! I embossed my leaves so that they would show up against the Bashful Blue sky. (Please note that both the Bashful Blue satin ribbon and the Oval All stamp set will be retiring as well.)

Stamps: Season of Friendship, Oval All
Ink: Chocolate Chip, VersaMark, Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Subtles Patterns Designer Series Paper Pack
Other: Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder, Bashful Blue Satin Ribbon, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Owl Punch, Scallop Square Duo Die

For my final card, I used all of the stamps in the set except for the tree!

Stamps: Season of Friendship
Ink: Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Early Espresso
Paper: Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper
Other: 1″ Square Punch

Thanks for stopping by! Remember, retiring stamp sets are available until May 30th, but retiring accessories are only available while supplies last. The next blog on the hop is Debra’s where she will be showing you the lovely Flight of the Butterfly. Isn’t it amazing what she does with that set?
