Cards: Using Retired Stamp Sets and Punches

I am still working on the scrapbook I promise to post.  It is almost done.  Mother's Day celebration starts tomorrow for me, so I will not be able to complete the scrapbook till next Monday.  I thought I would share the cards below, since the stamp sets I used,  have a short time left with Stampin' Up.

This is the final month to purchase the stamp sets used below.  They are on the retired list.  As of June, Stampin' Up will no longer have them available for you to buy.

The stamp sets below are:  Bravo and Dotty Angles.
The one below is Bordering Blooms.

The first card is a masculine designed and the above card is a feminine designed.  Both card can be used for different occasions:  Job Promotion, Graduation, Teacher (completed the school year), Selling a House and for many more celebrations. 

In the card below I used embossing folders and punches.  All of these items are on the retired list.
Embossing Folders:  Chevron, Decorative Dots, Stylish Stripes, and Zig Zag.
The Punches:  Large Oval, Scallop Oval, 1/2" Circle, 7/8" scallop, 1 1/4"scallop, 1 3/4" scallop,   2 3/8" Scallop, and the Bird Builder.  The little flower in the above card is also on the retire list:  Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

I love the big paper flower I made.  I hope to make more to decorate above my craft room window for the summer.

I had an awesome Monday hiking with my husband (which is one reason I couldn't finish the scrapbook).  I wanted to share some of the pictures taken during the hike.  The Northwest is so beautiful.
