Farewell Gorgeous Grunge & Petite Petals

It's that time of the year when the current Annual Catalogue makes way for the next Annual Catalogue and that means saying goodbye to some favourite stamp sets as they retire from sale.

Gorgeous Grunge has been my go to stamp set for a few years now. Always there for adding a bit of  background texture or when in a hurry to make a quick and easy card. The same with Petite Petals and it's matching punch. What am I going to stamp and punch out now from all those teeny scraps of Whisper White card that I hoarde?

Here is a final farewell card using retiring products from the 2016-2017 Annual catalogue.


How is this for a clean and simple card? I've used the retiring inks the In Colours of Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush. The rhinestones are retiring too to return in a new configuration in the new Annual Catalogue.

The sentiment is also from a retiring stamp set - Suite Sayings. I stamped my images onto Shimmery White cardstock which gives a nice bit of sparkle to a card.

You have one more day to get your order in for any of the retiring products. May 31 is the deadline!

On a positive note that means we then have the excitement of a brand new catalogue to drool over and find some new favourite stamp sets.

Make sure you get your last chance order in on time!

Cheers until my next post,

Janine
