It is a new week and I have decided rather than featuring a single bundle or stamp set this week, I am going to share cards made with some of my favorite retiring LAST CHANCE Products.  Since Last Chance Products are only available while supplies last, some of the products I'm using may have sold out by the time this post goes lives.  If you are interested in any of the Last Chance Products, it is always wise to act quickly because once they are gone, they are gone forever!

My card today uses the Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set.  I have loved this set because it is just fun to play with all the different shapes and mix and match them with assorted colors to see what I can come up with.

As I am sure you have heard by now, Stampin' Up! has a huge Color Refresh coming with the new 2023 - 2023 Annual Catalog.  Since today is also SIMPLY MONDAY, I decided to pull out every retiring color and see how many of them I could use on one card -- and what it would look like when I finished.  I used 9 of the 11 retiring colors on today's card.  Do you know which two I'm missing?  

I also used 8 of the 9 Watercolor Shapes Stamps!  But I made up for it by adding a Heart Shape for the sentiment.

The Heart Punch Pack is also on the Last Chance List.  In fact, there are only three products used on today's card that are NOT on the Last Chance List.  Do you know what they are?  If you guessed the Basic White cardstock, Black Memento ink and the Brushed Metallic Dots, you are correct.


The pretty Rose Gold Striped Ribbon is also retiring!

The Happy Birthday Sentiment is from Peaceful Moments, also a Last Chance List Product.  This sentiment set has been well loved by me and will probably stay in my stash for a while.

To decorate the inside of the card, I used some of the Watercolor Shapes along the left edge.  I love how easy it is to add color and interesting designs with these stamps.  This sentiment is from Inspired Thoughts to which we are also sadly saying goodbye.

Sentiment sets are my weakness, and I find it difficult to get rid of them.  A great sentiment never goes out of style or off trend, does it?  Of all my stamps, I believe sentiments are the best investment because we can use them forever!
