Hi Stamping Friends!

It's time for another Sunday Showcase featuring inspiration from my stamping friends!  My Too Cool Demo Team shared some amazing cards at our event last Monday.  Today, I'm featuring some of those cards that have some retiring merchandise on them. 

I've highlighted the retiring items in RED. Many of the items are already sold out, and the rest are available while supplies last through June 4 (or June 1 if they are from the Spring Occasions Catalog).  You can see what items are still available on the Retired Stamps List - PDF and Retired Accessories List – PDF.

Carmen - square lattice window flowers copy         

Created by Carmen DeBruce.  CASEd from Paula Knall at Knall Crafting..  Color combo: Pink Pirourette, Basic Black and Whisper White.

I think this card is simply stunning!  Carmen die-cut a window with Apothecary Accents Framelits, then embossed it with the retiring Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  The cascade of Petite Petals (wood) flowers is pretty, but it's that texture that makes this card so awesome to me. 

Also features: Petite Petals Punch, Pearl Jewels, Simply Sketched Hostess Set (wood)

Bundle It & Save—Purchase the Petite Petals stamp set and Petite Petals Punch together in the Petite Petals Bundle (wood) and save 15%!  This bundle WILL NOT be available in the new catalog, but you'll still be able to purchase the items separately.  Save by buying them now thru June 1!

Peggy - apothecary eastern copy       

Created by Peggy Tassler.  Color combo: Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Crushed Curry & Whisper White.

The beautiful retiring Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper sets the color combination for this pretty birthday card.  Peggy used the beautiful floral image from Apothecary Art (wood), and die cut the shapes with the coordinating Labels Collection Framelits.

Also features: Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Large Pearl Jewels, Stampin' Trimmer, Rotary Addition, Small Scallop Rotary Cutting Blade.

Rita - baseball card copy     

Created by Rita Berning.  Color combo: Pacific Point, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Silver & Whisper White.

What a fun & creative card for the baseball player or fan!  Rita used the mini chevron die-cuts from the Circle Card Thinlits to add "stitching" to the ball.  The pennant is from Banner Greetings Hostess Set (wood), added to a wooden skewer stick. 

Rita - baseball card2 copy

The background uses a combination of Gorgeous Grunge (wood) and the retiring Off the Grid stamp embossed in silver to represent the dirt on the field and the fencing.  Retiring Simply Stars (wood) represent the all-star player!  How very clever! 

Also features: Linen Thread, Hung Up Cute Clips.

Peggy - dahlias b&w copy       

Created by Peggy Tassler.  Color combo: Basic Black & Whisper White.

Peggy used the retiring Regarding Dahlias (wood) bloom and sentiment on this bold, black & white design decorated with Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper.  She did a modified "triple-time stamping" technique to create two layers that match up perfectly.  Learn how on this Triple-Time Stamping post.

Darla - mosaic scallop tag closure copy   

Created by Darla Eigenschink,  Color combo: Island Indigo, Strawberry Slush, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party & Whisper White.

Darla decorated this cheerful Scallop Tag Topper Punch card with the suite of mosaic products: Modern Mosaic Texture Impressions Folder, Mosaic Madness stamp set (wood), and the Quatrefancy Designer Series Paper.  Learn how to make this style of card: Scallop Tag Topper Punch Card.

Also features:  Banner Greetings Hostess Set (wood), Daffodil Delight Seam Binding.

Peggy - secret garden embedded copy        

Created by Peggy Tasser.  Color combo: Marina Mist, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder & Whisper White.

Here's that Square Lattice Embossing Folder again, making a pretty floral background using the embedded embossing technique. Peggy stamped and die-cut the retiring Secret Garden (wood) images with the coordinating and retiring Secret Garden Framelits.  They were mounted on Marina Mist card stock, then embossed with the Square Lattice Folder.  It kind of reminds me of an Hawaiian shirt!  Haha!

Peggy - happy watercolor grunge copy

Created by Peggy Tasser.  CASEd from Joanne James at Crafty Owl's Blog. Color combo: Perfect Plum, Daffodil Delight & Whisper White.

Check out this cleverness…Peggy stamped one of the splatter images from Gorgeous Grunge (wood) over each of the blooms on the Happy Watercolor (wood) image!  Too Cool!  I also love her white, shiny sequin accents, even though they aren't from Stampin' Up!  
Also Features:  Bring On The Cake (wood), Corner Rounder Punch.

Kathe - honeycomb butterflies copy

Created by Kathe Madsen.  Color combo: Smoky Slate, Island Indigo, Gumball Green & Whisper White

I love how the lovely Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper shows throught the intricate Hexagon Hive Thinlit die-cut front.  It's a fabulous look!  Kathe added some stamped Vellum butterflies, too, created from the Elegant Butterfly Punch and Beautiful Wings Embosslit.
Also Features:  Decorative Label Punch, Rhinestone Jewels.
