Once again it is time to say goodbye to some stamp sets! The retiring list for the Fall-Winter Idea Book & Catalog is here. The sets on the list will be discontinued after January 18, 2009. Click HERE to see the list, or HERE to see pictures of all the retiring sets.
The best news is that from now until December 23rd ALL of the stamp sets on the retired list are 10% off! And, if you order $70 or more, shipping is FREE! Can't beat that. :-) But remember both promotions end December 23rd.
One of my favorite stamp sets that is retiring is Baby Jesus is Born. This card is actually what I made last year for all of my Christmas cards. I basically just copied the sample that was shown in the Fall-Winter 2007 catalog. This card shows off the Watercolor Wonder Crayons and Aqua Painter. A fun technique if you haven't tried it before!
