Remember all those Stampin Up retired stamp sets you own?
You know, the ones that have been sitting in your craft area, stuck in a bin, buried in a box, out in the garage, lost in the basement, eaten by the dog, or under your kids’ bed…yeah, me neither. But the other day I needed a card for a bridal shower, and I wanted to use something I hadn’t stamped with in a while, so I pulled out my book of stamps (not the kind you mail, but I keep a stamped copy of every stamp I own so I can find what I want or at least browse through them for inspiration, not to mention those “Gee, I can’t remember if I own that set or not” moments) and settled on Baskets of Happiness from 1996.
The card stock color is Coastal Cabana, one of the In Colors for 2013-2015. I stamped the basket image and then fussy cut it, and then I adhered it directly to the card. I colored in the sentiment , cut it with my trimmer, and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to stick it on the card. And a card isn’t a card without a little bling, hence the rhinestones.
So what are you waiting for? Grab those Stampin Up retired stamp sets and get cracking!
