Retiring papers, inks

I went through all my cardstocks, ink pads and markers and pulled them out of the mix; now I just hope I can keep them separated until 7-1-10 while I still use them. I still need to pull all my retiring Designer Series papers, punches and Stamp Sets..... but I can't show you the stamp sets since I offered a contest to "guess" how many stamp sets, including hostess and wheels I am losing this year. If you can guess the "number" I am losing, I will let you choose one of the retiring stamp sets of your choice FREE!!!!! So place your guess by email and on 7-1-10 I will let you know who wins. Any ties will be put into a basket and I will draw the winning name. Make sure I have your email address to contact you.
I thought I would share with you the papers, with the new change-out that I am losing this year as well as the stamp pads and markers. My Stampin' Markers set I have sure looks empty I think there are only 16 or 17 markers left that are carried over. It looks like I will have a pretty heavy sale after July 1st, huh?
I showed you one of the Cards and bags with toppers the other day that I did for a Church Retreat, but I have more. The one I'm showing you today is the one that the organizer chose to have their guests make. This is using the new Elements of Style shown on page 12 of the Summer Mini Catalog. The whole card is made using only black ink on white cardstock. The image was stamped on the base of the card as well as the piece lifted by dimensionals. What do you think of the flower. This was made using the Round Scallop Punch. You punch out 8-10 pieces and crumple them all up and unfold them, pierce the center, insert a brad and then pull "each" piece to the center and crumple again, then carefully fold out each of the petal layers. You can then apply the flower to the card using several mini glue dots. The topper piece of the goodie bag is made using the Top Note Die. I stamped the whole image, so if you turn this over, the image is also on the back side. On the white piece, I detached the area around the perforated outside so it would lay on the black die cut showing a border. The greeting of "For You" is also a stamp from this set. This was stamped on white cardstock and punched out using the 1" circle punch, then punching the outside layer in black using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.
If you haven't checked out the Retiring Accessories list you will be surprised at how much is already sold out. If there are any papers, ink pads, etc. you were wanting DON'T HESITATE TO ORDER.... they are going really fast.
Tomorrow is Friday....... have a nice end of the week and enjoy your weekend.
