A Few Retirees

Stampin' Up! announced the retiring stamp sets today, you can see them here. I decided that I needed to break out two of my best friends: Full of Life and Smarty Pants. For the past three years these stamp sets together have been my "go to" sets when I needed a lighthearted or whimsical card. For this card I used the 2010-2012 In Colors, all of which are expected to retire on May 31st. I think when they first came out Concord Crush was my favorite color, and Poppy Parade was my personal least favorite. Well a lot of time has passed since then, and the Poppy Parade has really grown on me! For this card I used blossoms from the Blossom Builders Designer Printed Kit in Poppy Parade. The banners are Poppy Parade, Concord Crush and Peach Parfait. I stamped the sentiments in Pear Pizzazz.
While the saying on this card front is from Smarty Pants, the coordinating verse on the inside comes from Full of Life. While I am a tad sad to see these leave, don't look for them on my For Sale lists soon - they're a "keeper"!

  2. Oh my gosh, I never realized these two sets had phrases that went perfectly with each other!!! I may have to get the Full of Life set now, since I already have Smarty Pants! Clever card :)
