Going…Going…Day Two

Going…Going…Gonna’ miss it if you don’t act now!  🙂

As we prepare for the release of the 2013-2014 Annual Catalog on Friday and prepare to say goodbye to several stamp sets in the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog and 2013 Spring Catalog, I think it’s appropriate to take a step back and share some projects from the past year that feature products that are soon to be retired. I’ll be sharing those with you intermittently throughout the rest of this week.  If you are new to my blog, then these will all be a treat for you.  If you have been following my blog for the past year, these will hopefully be fond memories of projects gone by – but I hope you, too, find something new.

Each project will link back to the original post, so feel free to click on them to take you back to the original post.

Summer Solstice, Language of Friendship

I’ve only shared one card that I’ve made with Summer Solstice and Language of Friendship, but I was really, really happy with how it turned out, so I want to share it.  I love the lines of the images in Summer Solstice – beautiful for a black and white card or a card that pops with color.  Although they are not featured here, be sure to check out the sentiments in this stamp set – incredible!  Language of Friendship says just what I wanted this card to say – love it here!Summer Solstice, Language of Friendship, Stampin' Up!, Brian King

Every Little BitI couldn’t love the little images in Every Little Bit more than I do.  I always think “I need to use that set!” when I’m designing, so I was surprised to see how many times I HAVE used it.  I’ve used these cute, little in lots of different ways.  Here are three of my projects.  If you don’t have this set, do yourself a favor – get it now.  You deserve it.Every Little Bit, A Fitting Occasion, Stampin' Up!, Brian King

Curly Cute

It took me a while to invest in Curly Cute.  Because it was so “cute-sy”, I was not convinced that it would be flexible enough for different styles of cards.  Guess what – I was wrong!  This sentiment set has it all and works well in all styles.  Here are some projects I made with this flexible set: Curly Cute, Stampin' Up!, Brian King

Established Elegance

I’m not known for my vintage style, right?  This set is far more vintage thn I normally work with, but I love it!  You can still make vintage while remaining clean-and-simple.  I was really happy with this project, so I wanted to share it with you again today:Established Elegance, Loving Thoughts, Stampin' Up!, Brian King Did you miss Day One of Going…Going…?  Check it out here.

    Another collection of lovely cards, Brian. I have Summer Solstice, Language of Friendship (with the bird punch) and I just can’t think of a reason why I waited so long to get Curly Cute!! this greetings are beautiful and, like you said, so versatile. I’m so happy I finally own it. All of this sets are worth having before they are gone for good. There is still time so I’ve been rearranging my June order list to accommodate some of the things that will be retiring, I can’t wait, this order will be on it’s way tomorrow.

  2. You made that wreath with that snowflake???? Zowie!!!

  3. What a treat ! I love each of these cards . There is a set in here that I remember now how I planned to order but,didn`t . I am getting it today! Also I love the boldness of the red quilt style card . How different . I like toi do these types of cards but, have never thought of all one color . What a great idea for a Christmas card ! I love this parade of art !!

  4. All beautiful cards Brian. I wonder if all the orders going in tomorrow will crash the SU site? Just kidding. I’m going to wait until Saturday to put my order in as this house is always crazy on Fridays! Then I will try, really try, to be patient while I await the arrival of all the new toys. It is funny that there are lots of stamps I don’t really pay attention to until I see them used on a card on your website. Then suddenly they go on my “have to have” list. You are very inspiring.

    I love these! I enjoy seeing how you use stamp sets in ways I didn’t envision.

    What a wonderful review, Brian! I remember quite a few of your designs…and fun to rember things you used like the snowflake for the wreath! Thanks for sharing your creations again!

  7. Such a glorious walk down memory lane, Brian! There are so many stamps that are retiring that I have and they haven’t even seen any use…I am so ashamed {lol} 🙁 . I really need to get busy, big time, huh? Looking forward to ordering things from the new catty, though not as much straight away, so I can have time to use them properly. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  8. I can’t believe how extraordinary a little snowflake can turn out to be. Your artistic eye is amazing. Thanks for the wonderful idea. I wonder if I will ever see stamp images the way you do! Nancy B
