Saying Goodbye: Vintage Primrose Papaya Parade

With the Retirement List being announced yesterday, I decided to share projects using some of my favorite retiring stamps and accessories all this week.

Today I am featuring the set Papaya Collage. Even though this beautiful set has been around for quite some time, I only recently added it to my collection. (yes...go ahead and blame me for it's retirement! ;-)  Unfortunately for me,  it hasn't seen a whole lot of ink...yet.

I used quite a few retiring products on this card...can you spot them all? One of the items used here is also part of this weeks Weekly Deals. This photo should help you to spot what I've used...

Favorite Retiring Stamps: Papaya Collage & Pennant Parade
Favorite Retiring In Color: Primrose Petals (here I used ink & Core'dinations Cardstock)
Favorite Retiring Paper: Core'dinations 12x12 Cardstock
Favorite Retiring Wheel: Very Vintage...bummed that ALL the wheels are history...waahhhh!
Favorite Retiring Ribbon: Victoria Crochet Trim (on sale as part of this weeks Weekly Deal)
Favorite Retiring Embossing Folders: Framed Tulips & Needlepoint Border
Favorite Retiring Tools: Sponge Daubers & Sanding Block (oops...forgot to put in photo)

As you can see I've used many favorite retiring products here. I've gotten a lot of use out of the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel...I think it makes a lovely background that can be layered upon as I've done here. The Framed Tulips Embossing Folder makes such a beautiful frame for your stamped creations or photos on a scrapbook page...I sure hope that we see other frame style embossing folders! I've used the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder often to add extra detail and to use as a layer under my ribbon. Here I've just used the dashed line that looks like stitching...doesn't it look like ribbon?

If you don't already have these items...I highly recommend adding them to your collection today!

Hope you will stop by tomorrow to help me say goodbye to some more of my favorites.

I was sad to see some of my favorites on the retiring list, too, but it what a great opportunity to be able to still buy some this week with free shipping!!!! Because of your projects with Field Flowers, I ordered the set along with a few other favorites I couldn't say good-bye to. Your work is just exquisite and inspirational!!! Thank you for sharing and motivating me to be creative.
