Inspiring Card Ideas

Time is ticking down - there are only a couple more days to get the Stampin' Up! stamp sets that are retiring this year.  But don't panic yet - you still have until the end of the day on Thursday, May 31st.

With that in mind, I have a bunch of samples to share today.  First off are cards made with Inspired by Nature.
 This one was made with pastels - which are also retiring this year.  Our pastels are made in colors that coordinate with Stampin' Up!'s exclusive colors - so get yours before they're gone!

 Isn't this elegant?  It's silver embossed on Brushed Silver cardstock - so pretty!

Next up is Autumn Days - another versatile set.

Did you know you could make Christmas and Winter cards with this set?  Well you can!  Check out these two cards:

Another stamp set that is good year 'round is Season of Friendship
 Isn't that little bird adorable?
 This stamp set has the bird, a flower, a snowflake, and leaves to put on the tree.

Don't you love this card with the shading?  That's done with sponges and ink pads.

 That last card also uses the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set.  So I thought I should show you some samples with that set too because it's also retiring.
 These small stamps look good when they are stamped multiple times and in various shades of ink.

So if any of these stamp sets are on your wish list, get them now.  You can't use the excuse that you don't have any ideas!
