Stamps Headed for Retirement

Welcome to our Retiring Stamps Blog Hop, brought to you by the same ladies who participate in the monthly Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop.  In anticipation of a new Annual Inspirations catalog in August, it is "out with the old" to make way for new stamp sets.  Close To My Heart has released a list of retiring stamp sets which we are featuring in this Blog Hop.  When you see a favorite, be sure to get your order in before the end of July.          

If you arrived here from Create With Alyson you are hopping through our circle of Close To My Heart consultants sharing their projects using retiring stamp sets.


After consulting the retiring list, I was inspired by two stamp sets.  The circle images are from the So Many Smiles set and the sentiment is found in Happy For You.  The bright colors are papers in the new Prickly Pear packet.  Pattern #26 in Make It From Your Heart volume 2 sparked the card design.   

In addition to all of the US State and Canada Province stamps, this is a list of the stamp sets that are scheduled to be retired.    

Please visit Show and Tell, with Michelle blog to continue along our Blog Hop


If you get lost along the way, the complete list of participants is available on Melinda's 'If You Bling It' blog.   



All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

Hello Foxy (June SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  During the month of June the Hello Foxy stamp set is available, which includes some adorable fox images as well as some nice summertime images and a few sentiments.          

If you have come here from HeARTful Stamper, you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  

Using sketch #24 in Make It From Your Heart volume 1, this fun card uses papers from the Jack packet to create a 'woodsy' background for the fun fox.  Colored pencils were used to color the adorable fox image from Hello Foxy, and some White Burlap Ribbon adds a bit of dimension.           

Place a $50 minimum order this month (June 2017) and you are eligible to purchase the Hello Foxy stamp set for only $5. It is also available for $17.95 without a qualifying purchase.  





Now "Hop" on over to Miss Carrie's Creations blog to see her work.  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas.
