SUO Challenge 14, Favorite Retired Stamp Sets!

Do you remember Watercolor Garden? Button Bear? Stella Stamper? Think of all of those great retired Stampin' Up stamp sets that are sitting on your shelves. The ones you just can bear to part with. The ones you pull out as your "go to" stamp set for a quick card.


The challenge this week is use your  favorite RETIRED Stampin' Up stamp set and make a card. This means that it is a set that you can no longer purchase from a Stampin' Up demonstrator because it isn't available anymore.


Here are some of our favorites to inspire you.

Sale-a-bration Challenge Winners

Thank you  so much for all of the wonderful entries for the last challenge. There were so many beautiful choices that it made the decision making process very difficult.

We had a two way tie for first place.

Julie B with a soft and elegant style and Anne Marie with a bright and bold style. Both very different styles, but we liked them just the same.

Our other winner was Connie Babbert with a card that is just "sew suite".

Thank you ladies. Pleas pick up your badges and display them on your website.


We hope you all will play along this week.

What a fantastic idea for a challenge!
I loved getting out my favourite old set and using it again.
It is lovely to see what everyone elses favourite sets are too and how beautifully you've used them.  A lot of them I haven't ever seen before.
Thanks again for a great challenge site.

I was so happy to see this challenge to use retired stamps.  As a demonstrator, I feel pressured to only use current stamps for my blog posts, but I love my retired stamps too.  The biggest challenge was to pick just one!  Thanks for the challenge.
