One Retiring Stamp Set, Three Cards, Three Themes!

This week's challenge on the Latenight Stamper's group was to use one retiring set to make three different themed cards. I have been feeling really worn out lately so I got a bit of a late start hence the Tuesday post instead of Monday but it is a weekly challenge. I sure hope you will play along. It is really fun and makes you use your stamps in different ways. I chose the stamps set A Little Birdie Told Me. I have had lots of fun with this stamp set and will be sorry to see it go. Here are three more cards to send it on it's way out.

The first is a get well card. it is also using the retiring Baja Breeze paper and Sweet Slumber DP. The unbrellas are paper pieced with Baja Breeze dp.

Stamps: A Little Birdie Told Me
Paper: Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White and Sweet Slumber Speciality DP, Baja Breeze DP
Ink: Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, Basic Black
Other: water brush, circle punches, label punch, scallop circle punch, wide ribbon

The next card is just a fun "your the best" card. Love these colors. This paper too will be retiring.
Stamps: A Little Birdie Told Me
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Pacific Point, Summer Sun, Whisper White, Good Morning Sunshine DP
Ink: Basic Black
Other: markers, cordurory brads, satin ribbon

Finally is a birthday card. I think this one is fun.

Stamps: A Little Birdie Told Me
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Sweet Slumber Speciality dp
Ink: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red
Other: markers, ribbon

Hopefully I will have time to make another set tomorrow. So many great sets are retiring.

See ya later

Again, great cards. Amazing how many looks you can achieve with one set! What an inspiration for a 'stamper' to add it to their collection. TFS
