Hi Stamping Friends!
It's time for another Sunday Showcase featuring inspiration from my stamping friends! My Too Cool Demo Team shared some amazing cards at our event last Monday. Today, I'm featuring some of those cards that have some retiring merchandise on them.
I've highlighted the retiring items in RED. Many of the items are already sold out, and the rest are available while supplies last through June 4 (or June 1 if they are from the Spring Occasions Catalog). You can see what items are still available on the Retired Stamps List - PDF and Retired Accessories List - PDF.

I think this card is simply stunning! Carmen die-cut a window with Apothecary Accents Framelits, then embossed it with the retiring Square Lattice Embossing Folder. The cascade of Petite Petals (wood) flowers is pretty, but it's that texture that makes this card so awesome to me.
Bundle It & Save—Purchase the Petite Petals stamp set and Petite Petals Punch together in the Petite Petals Bundle (wood) and save 15%! This bundle WILL NOT be available in the new catalog, but you'll still be able to purchase the items separately. Save by buying them now thru June 1!
Created by Peggy Tassler. Color combo: Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Crushed Curry & Whisper White.
The beautiful retiring Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper sets the color combination for this pretty birthday card. Peggy used the beautiful floral image from Apothecary Art (wood), and die cut the shapes with the coordinating Labels Collection Framelits.
Created by Rita Berning. Color combo: Pacific Point, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Silver & Whisper White.
What a fun & creative card for the baseball player or fan! Rita used the mini chevron die-cuts from the Circle Card Thinlits to add "stitching" to the ball. The pennant is from Banner Greetings Hostess Set (wood), added to a wooden skewer stick.
The background uses a combination of Gorgeous Grunge (wood) and the retiring Off the Grid stamp embossed in silver to represent the dirt on the field and the fencing. Retiring Simply Stars (wood) represent the all-star player! How very clever!

Peggy used the retiring Regarding Dahlias (wood) bloom and sentiment on this bold, black & white design decorated with Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper. She did a modified "triple-time stamping" technique to create two layers that match up perfectly. Learn how on this Triple-Time Stamping post.
Created by Darla Eigenschink, Color combo: Island Indigo, Strawberry Slush, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party & Whisper White.
Created by Peggy Tasser. Color combo: Marina Mist, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder & Whisper White.
Here's that Square Lattice Embossing Folder again, making a pretty floral background using the embedded embossing technique. Peggy stamped and die-cut the retiring Secret Garden (wood) images with the coordinating and retiring Secret Garden Framelits. They were mounted on Marina Mist card stock, then embossed with the Square Lattice Folder. It kind of reminds me of an Hawaiian shirt! Haha!
