Stampin up font of you dusty durango

Stampin up font of you flower vase With the excitement of the impending release of the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini and Sale-A-Bration Promotion (both start Tuesday, Jan. 5–see them now on my right side bar), there's a bittersweet reality that many fabulous stamps will be retiring on Jan. 4.  Today, I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Font of You.  It's currently on the dormant list and headed for retirement.

Dormant stamps are available thru Jan. 4 and can be purchased until that time.  TIP:  Use my search button (left side bar) to look up samples by stamp set name.  Here's another Font of You Sample I whipped up previously.

  • SDC12681-4 Make your stamping time more efficient.  I used this week's Splitcoast Sketch Challenge (SC261, below) as a quick starting point to create this sympathy card.
  • Layer, baby, layer.  Punch and layer your way to a stunning sentiment.  I used the Stampin' Up! Word Window, Large Oval and Designer Label Punches to juice up my tiny text.
  • The Font of You vase was stamped a second time on Dusty Durango.  Paper snipping and Stampin' Dimensionals give it a lovely lift!  Stampin' Up! Paper Snips cleanly cut around little details.
  • The flower blooms were dolled up with a Dusty Durango Stampin' Up! Marker.  So easy!
