Paperwings Angel Art Blog Hop - Saying a Fond Farewell to Retiring Stamps

Thanks for hopping by the Paperwings Angel Art Blog Hop. We're saying a fond goodbye to some of our favorites from The Angel Company stamp sets that are retiring. There are many "dear friends" in the collection but I'll just feature two that you should get before they disappear for good!

Bold Hello and Circles and Sentiments - I hardly knew ya but what I knew I loved. What great stamp sets with lots of options for a variety of occasions.

Bold Hello has a fondness for shimmer. :) Doesn't the heart look great embossed in silver? It makes a great wedding card! It's a sweet little stamp set that packs a big punch. :)


And, if you need a gift for the wedding shower, how about making some thank you cards for the bride-to-be? The Circles and Sentiments stamp set is perfect for some quick and easy "thank yous". All you need is a super jumbo scalloped circle punch, some versamark ink, some versamagic ink and a bit of black ink and a scor-pal (hard to see but there are a couple of scored lines above the swirly border design). Pop up your sentiment with a pop dot and bam - done! Easy, peasy. :)  I used aloe vera versamagic ink that coordinated perfectly with Bazzill Lily Pond Cardstock. And, the versamark border (from Wonderful News) shows up beautifully on the cardstock, don't you think?

Thanks for hopping by my blog! I hope you'll continue hopping as these ladies will have some FABULOUS designs for you to enjoy!
