You know when you have a tidy up (being the New Year an all that!!) you come across things that you bought ages ago, but have never used. Well here's a couple of cards using a stamp from a retired US set. In the summer of last year, I was on the look out for Stampin' Up sets as I kept hearing this name , 'SU', but didn't want to appear stupid not knowing - well would you?
Anyhow, I did eventually learn what the letters stood for and just had to go search out some of their goodies. Ebay was my first port of call and I was lucky enough to win an auction for 15 retired stamp sets for about £75 icl. P&P. A real bargain, I think, and here's one of the stamps I decided to take out of the box and use. Quick and easy - stamps perfectly (like all SU stamps do) -small area to colour - dazzling diamonds glitter for the stork - matted /layered on SU card stock and DSPs - grosgrain ribbon and brads to embellish.
Look out for more cards - or even a 'pizza box' !!
