Retiring In Colors
The colours being retired are amongst some of my favourites; Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Concord Crush and Peach Parfait. A mixed pack of 20 sheets (four sheets of each of the five colors) A4 size has been reduced to $8.37 (was $13.95) and I would expect it to sell out quickly. This little card (above) uses Pear Pizzazz with Blushing Bride (both retired) and the smallest amount of Rose Red. The stamps are from Clearly For You (Wood 123551, clear 121976), a lovely set with 12 stamps, some small, some medium-sized. I stamped onto Vanilla card, then punched images out with my 1" square punch before mounting onto pieces of Pear Pizzazz punched with the Postage Stamp Punch. This stamp set is on page 88 of your current catalog and has been reduced by 25% to $35.96 for wood and $29.21 for clear.
And the last retired set I will tell you about this post is Baroque Motifs, a set very dear to me as my mother gave it to me, before she passed away 3 ½ years ago. It has a lovely large swirl which I think is perfect for wedding cards, I clear embossed it on my example below. "Cherish" and "Kind" are words included with this stamp set, there are 6 in the set, check it out on page 92 available only in wood ( 11640) and not reduced but still reasonably priced at $39.95.
Ink PadsAll the ink pads are listed because they are being reconfigured so after September 1st they'll be a firm foam ink pad instead of the felt covered ones we have now. Same colours - with 5 new In Colors to replace the 5 retiring this month. There are some good buys amongst that lot if you are wanting to build up your colour range as they have been reduced by at LEAST 25%, most of the In Color range is right down to $7.17, even colours like Pool Party, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral and Wisteria Wonder which remain current for another 12 months. Not only that, they are gorgeous, useable shades! Another bargain in the ink pads I thought was the set of Classic Stampin' Pads in Neutrals. There are 8 colors in this set (no Whisper White or Very Vanilla) and you can have all these for $59.96, about $7.50 EACH!!
The cases are the same shape so they'll still fit in the caddy.
I know this has been a very long post, but I really wanted you to be aware of the savings to be had, so I hope you don't mind too much. Please get in touch if I can help in any way, you can pay for your order by credit card, bank direct deposit or cash. I will be ordering Sunday evening for anyone who wants to jump in quickly.
In the meantime, happy stamping,
