Stampin' Up! Forever Young & Updated Retired List ...
33 Marathons and a game of golf .....

Brayered backgrounds with 2 new stamp sets ....

Hello :) Today I have some samples of a brayered background stamping technique using two new stamp sets from the new 2011/2012 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalogue. This technique works best on glossy cardstock, and the colours I have used to brayer are Rich Razzleberry, Regal Rose and So Saffron. I have also sponged some Tangerine Tango around the moon as wispers of clouds (or at least that was the effect I was looking for!).

The first set is another image from the lovely Forever Young stamp set I used in the last post. How cute is this image?

The second set I have used is My Friend. I just love this silhouette foliage image from this set. (Apologies for the dodgy photo with glare. I knew if I waited until tomorrow I wouldn't get the blog post up, and the images have been sitting there stamped for a week already. As soon as I get a chance I will take a decent pic and reload).

Are you salivating at the thought of new stamps and ribbons and embellishments? Then grap a copy of the new catalogue. Even though you can't purchase the products until September 1, a girl needs time to plan right? The catalogues are available to order from me now and all the details are here.

Of course we have to say goodbye to to some old favourites first, and you can grab some great bargains on the retired list. Some of the products have already sold out though so get in quick! I've updated my retiring items page with all the details.

The top 3 sets I will personally find super hard to say goodbye to would have to be Friends 24/7, A Wish For Peace and Great Friend. These are gorgeous stamp sets. Here's some cards from the archives using these sets:

I hope you enjoyed this brief trip down memory lane. If there's anything still on your wish list from the retired list, you know what to do :)

Have a happy week,

Claire xx
