Simply Sunday: Retiring Hero’s

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s that time of year… the Retirement List is out! It’s so sad to see some of our favorites leave, but you know there are some great new stamp sets coming!

One of my favorite stamp sets retiring it the Ronald McDonald House stamp set … “My Hero”. This stamp set touches my heart, because for every stamp set I sell … Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald houses that host families so they can be near their children in the hospital with life threatening illnesses. I can’t image having to go through that, I’ve been very blessed to have healthy kids and grandkid … that’s why it touches me so.

This stamp set is so versatile it should be in everyone’s stamp collection!!  I have 7 card samples for you from this one stamp set! Let’s begin with a card that wishes you well (and the little umbrella ties in with April Showers).

The umbrella in the “My Hero” stamp set coordinates with the Umbrella Weather Framelits on page 193 of our annual catalog.

Our next card is easy to make and I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to make my eggs and the Layering Square Framelits for my greeting.  Once you have these framelits … you’ll wonder how you ever made cards without them!

This is the card that bears the name of our stamp set “My Hero”. Here I pulled out all the punches to create this card. The greeting stamp coordinates with the Best Badge punch and the Banner Triple punch was used for the banners … let’s not forget our stars!

Now here’s a fun one … I this card I used the pumpkin face to adorn the lines cut from the “Swirly Scribbles Framelits”. Gently use the end of your scissors to curl the free ends.

I used the Heart stamp to create this cute little Valentine’s card. The pretty paper comes from the “Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Paper” and the Sweetheart Heart punch.

 Next, our cute little “Celebrate” card. The designer paper is the “Festive Birthday”.  Again I used the Banner punch to create my banners and the band in the center was embossed with the Festive embossing folder to give it some texture and a little jazz!

And last but not least is our Christmas card.  I used the “This Christmas” Specialty paper which is layered over the “Holly” embossed cardstock. Our greeting was punched out and layered over the Metallic Foil Doily and topped off with a Star from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.

I wanted to share all of these cards at once so that you could see how versatile this stamp set really is. You can be a HERO, when you purchase the “My Hero” stamp set … $3.00 goes to the Ronald McDonald Houses throughout the US. It’s a easy way to help children fighting for their lives by keeping their families close to them.

Let me know if you have any questions or need help ordering this stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by …

Stay healthy and have a nice day!
