Out With the Old, IN With the New!!

This is my FIRST CARD made with my new set, Little Lady. I love this set...sooo cute and fun to play with.
My new blog colors inspired me to make a card with them!! :) This is also today's challenge on SCS--to use "scallops" on our card. I used fiskars cloud scissors for the bottom borders and my marvy giga scallop circle punch for the circle.

STAMPS: Little Lady (Papertrey Ink)
COLORS: Apricot Appeal, Pixie Pink; Pink Passion; Certainly Celery; Basic Black.


Now, with the "OUT with the OLD" part of this. I desperately need to do a clean sweep of my craft room, because my niece is coming to stay with us and I need to put the daybed in that room, so in the middle of cleaning it up, I thought I would also grab the sets that rarely to never get used anymore. SORRY--I'm not a demo and do not have brand spanking new stamp sets. These are ones I've used, although some of the stamps in the sets have never been inked. With that said, I'm going to offer them up as blog candy. I will do this in 2 posts. If you like the sets in the following picture, please leave me a comment on this post and tell me what stamp set is your favorite, or one that you bought most recently. :) Then stay tuned for another blog candy in a couple days. You can't beat this...I'm paying for shipping, so I'm basically PAYING YOU to take them off my hands...how twisted is that??!! :) So leave me a comment!!

I can't believe I am the first post. The first post never wins. Anywho, I recently purchased the Doodle This set from Stampin Up and really am having fun with the big flower in this set. And now that there is going to be a wheel in the new catalog, I will have to have that too.

Thanks for posting such great sets. I like the top one. I never purchased that one, but I should have.

My latest favorite set is Baroque Motifs. I have stamped a couple of images with it but I can tell that I will love using it a lot of times.

I have the 2nd set, but not the first one. But, I'd rather someone who doesn't have either get the candy!!

I just wanted to say that this is a GREAT idea and I think I'll do it on my blog, too! :)

Lynda said...

I have to agree with Mary my favorite new set is Boroqye Motifs. I love all the 'swirly' stuff!!!

Michele said...

I just purchased the Wild About You set. Haven't played with it yet though! Great idea for blog candy!

oh wow... i'm not sure i could name just 1 favorite set... so, I'll go with the second option and tell you the most recent set I purchased: Little Hellos from Stampin' Up. It's a retiring set, and it's been on my list for a REALLLLLLY long time. I couldn't let it retire without coming to live with me first! =) I'm really looking forward to the new SU catty... I hear there are lots of line-art style stamps, and I love those kind of images for coloring, and creating fun monochromatic background papers. By the WAY, the cabin photo from your vacation looks WONDERFUL!!!

I too have the 2nd set, but not the first one. Thought about that one a few time, just never got it.

I just got a new set from Stampendous called Sassy Silhouettes. I love it. Its like mini bellas. I have not had a chance to use it yet, but I am going to this weekend.

The last Stampin up set I got was the Loads of love and Accessory sets. LOVE Them. Used them a few times, cant wait for more.

Love your card!!! The last set I purchased with the last Papertrey set. So far I have all of them. And the last SU set I got was the Crab and Company. I also love that one. thanks for the offer of this stamp set. It looks like one that is very usable. BTW--love your blog. Thanks for sharing with us.

I like both sets you are offering, so I'd be happy with either one, wink, wink!

The most recent sets I bought were the ones being retired, christmas postage one, sympathy, and another 19.95 one, plus a ton of ribbon before the big change.

Great"little lady" card! Ladybugs are just adorable. (the only kind of bug I like)

Right now my favorite set is Because of You from Stampin' Up! I'm sure that will change when I get my new catty. :)

hi Kristine - let's see- my favorite set right now probably is Doodle This - i'm enjoying the versatility of making something really elaborate (i.e paper piecing the flower stamp) or very simple (stamping the flourish simply on ivory cardstock). Great give-away! have a great weekend
