Farewell to Summer Silhouette CTC#80

This week at CASE-ing The Catty we are sharing our favourite retiring stamp sets, and I have two very inky, well-used stamp sets leaving the catalogue this time (but not my shelves!!) Not yet anyway. Summer Silhouette is a wonderful, carefree type of stamp which I ordered immediately it was released. You can use it in so many different ways, with stems, leaves and petals all being individual stamps, and not needing to be perfectly placed is a huge bonus.

Just to freshen things up, and because I'm so besotted with the latest InColors, which you can order too in a few days (1st June 2016) I've used Flirty Flamingo, which might just be my favourite, and Peekaboo Peach, with Mint Macaron leaves. You can see some of the ruched ribbon here too, in Flirty Flamingo. The leaves in this stamp set are so nice, I've used them alone too, and stamped them inside this card. The border stamp is very distinctive too and almost covers the card side-to-side.

The other retiring stamp I used is Petite Pairs, also very inky, but so handy for so many reasons. It has some lovely sentiments, and they each have a buddy for the inside of the card. Both of these stamps are only available until May 31st unless stock runs out sooner. If you feel like putting a last minute order in through my Australian shop, don't forget to check out the retiring stock lists and Clearance. The lists are as up-to-date as you can get, and many items are discounted. You can find my online store here and this month the HOSTESS Code is ZGGAABEE.

By the way, it's not too late to contact me for an invitation to my Catalogue Launch on Saturday June 4th at 2 p.m. A number of my regulars had other commitments, so it won't be too crowded if you'd like to come and bring a friend. I'm located in South Morang, Victoria, so if that's not too far for you, text me your name and address, and I'll give you alll the details. There is no charge and lots of fun to be had!

Happy crafting

Cheers, Rachel


  1. Oh Rachel, I love your card - the layout, the colours, the die cut frame ... I haven't used this set enough and it was one of my faves.

  2. Gorgeous! These colours look so fantastic with this stamp set! Thankyou for sharing!

  3. Wonderful colour combination, looking forward to the new in colours. Will miss this sentiment set too.

  4. This is such a super pretty card Rachel. I'm going to miss both of these sets too!

  5. This colour combo is divine, Rachel! Love your layout & the addition of the leaves to the inside. These two sets contain great images & are both staying on my shelves too! :)
