Farewell to a Favourite!
When the list of retiring stamp sets posted last week I have to admit I was a little bit sad. Some of my very favourite stamp sets are going away :( I know there will be fabulous new sets to take their place but I still will miss a few that are my go-to sets. One such set is Artistic Etchings. I love the images and how vesatile they are. I decided to include it in my Retirement Party class, which is happening tomorrow night. Here is the card we'll be making to bid Artistic Etchings a fond farwell...
I chose to include one of the retiring colours in this design as well. I used Ridinghood Red along with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. The background is stamped with the En Francais background stamp (thank goodness that one's staying!) and then embossed it with the Lacy Brocade TIEF (another one I'll miss!). I added a bit of Soft Suede 3/8" taffeta ribbon and some Victoria Lace Trim as well as one of the bronze buttons I had leftover from the Holiday Catalogue. *Sigh*...I will so miss this set!
