Going, Going, Gone!!

Last week, I post the list of retiring stamp sets.  Today, Stampin' Up! released it's list of retiring accessories.  And it's really, really long.  The bad news is, we're losing some really fun products.  But the good news is, it's making way for even more fresh new products.  And they have discounted some of the retiring products up to 60%!  So head on over to my online store at and place your order today because these savings and the products are only available while supplies last!!!

Two things on the list are featured on today's card:
Colors: Naturals Ivory, Cajun Craze, Chocolate Chip.  Stamps: Delightful Dozen.  Accessories: Well Worn Designer Series Paper, 5/8" Jumbo Brads.

Every year, Stampin' Up! retires nearly all their designer series paper and this year is no different.  I have loved this Well Worn paper.  It is perfect for masculine cards like this one.  And the Jumbo Brads are also retiring.  I've had these in my stash for quite a while but just recently started using them more.  I think they also add just the right touch to the card.

 After I finished the card, I wished that I had made the ends of each piece pointed so that it looked like ties.  You could certainly do that to your own when you make it at my Spring Fling Stampin' Buffet this weekend.  Thursday is the last day to RSVP.  So let me know what you want to make and I'll see you there.

And come back on Friday for a Stampin' Addicts blog hop featuring retiring stamp sets.  The gals over at Stampin' Addicts never disappoint and I'm sure they won't this time either.
