Highlighting Stampin’ Up! stamp sets that are retiring as of June 2nd. This week’s highlighted set (well, two of them, actually) is Mixed Bunch (the flowers) and Petite Pairs, both featured on this card, originally featured in this YamStamps blog post. They’re available in wood mount or clear mount, with guaranteed availability until May 26th (after which it’s as supplies last). The large images in Mixed Bunch coordinate with the retiring Blossom Punch (available as supplies last). I love me a coordinating stamp and punch. (I have been known to call myself the Lazy Stamper…but hey – work smarter, not harder, right?!). You should always have a good sentiment set in your stash, and Petite Pairs is great because it has 2 sentiments – so you can place one on the outside of the card, and one on the inside, should you choose.
While I’m sad to see some of these fave sets going, I do have a growing sense of excitement to see what’s in the upcoming catalogue! Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators get a first peek and preorder, so if you’re chomping at the bit, perhaps this is the time to join my “Eh” Team of demonstrators? (nudge, nudge, wink, wink…)
