Refresh the Retiring Stamp Camp #1

BETSY'S BLOSSOMS & GLIMMER BRADS

I remember when this stamp set came out.  It was a preorder set and it had coordinating designer series paper.  OH I JUST LOVED IT!  But after a couple months, I stopped using it.  The paper wasn't available the following year and I just didn't grab it off the shelf.  When I saw this set on the retired list, well I knew why it was.  Like others, I'm sure they bought it and then it sat on the way side.  I was excited to see that it's day is up and soon we'll get a new set to replace it.  But for now, I WAS GOING TO USE IT!!!


I refreshed this stamp set by using it with one of our newer embossing folders.  I loved the way the hexagons played on the bold patterns of the flowers.  Of course, it's so easy to create this...just stamp your paper and then roll on through the embossing folder.  WOW...you're awesome!



The GLIMMER BRADS I will definitely miss!  They are the perfect size....not to big, not too small and of course glittery!!!  I'm not sure what replacement I will find for this accessory.  :(  I already miss you!


How easy to accent a sentiment.  Just add a bow with a glue dot and presto...awesome little saying and accent.  I do like this ribbon too....I hope we get some good new stuff!

COLORS USED:  Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, and Pumpkin Pie
