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.

- 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!
