Old and New

Happiness Shared is another gorgeous stamp set that will no longer be available after the 31st of May. I chose to design these cards using in colors that are also leaving our catalog for good (Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait). The card above also uses the retiring Distressing Essentials kit. Included in the kit are: one flat stamp; 4 distressing ink spots in Tea Stain (used here), Charcoal, Mahogany, and Navy; 1 sanding block; 1 emery board; and 3 precision files.

This card includes a sneak peek. The shape containing the wording is from the Apothecary Accents Framelits collection. They are a must-have from the new catalog. Such fun shapes.

Although the framelits come in very nice, heavy-duty plastic envelopes, I find them much easier to store in our clear mount stamp cases lined with part of a self-adhesive magnetic sheet cut to fit. The cases are just $5.95 for four (119105). The magnetic sheets are another item being discontinued, so you may want to order them now. A package contains 3 sheets, 6" x 13" and sell for $9.95 (119816).
