I have PILES of retired designer series paper and I thought it would be fun to have a stampin' flashback. Do you recognize this DSP?  It has a copyright on each sheet of 2007!  Some of the colors in it are Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip and Groovy Guava.
It is Afternoon Tea! I had a WHOLE package of it and I thought rather than it sit dusty in my stampin' room, I would use it up. It sure is pretty even after 5 years of sitting on my paper hoarder. :)

I made a dozen of these cards today.  I even had some Wild Wasabi double stitched ribbon from a ribbon share I did w/ my sister in law, Julie.  Thanks, Julie! :) 

I did; however, sell my Groovy Guava supplies--I was kicking myself for that when I found this DSP.  Now I know why I keep everything--just in case! I made a Calypso Coral butterfly instead.  It worked.   LOL The stamp set is also retired is came out in 2006--Warmest Regards.  I love the font.

What have you been hoarding?   Do you keep your old dsp, cardstock and stamp sets?
I would love to hear that I'm not the only hoarder around.  :)

Now, I have to hurry  back to my Stampin' Room to see what else I can make w/ this dsp before Evan wakes up from his nap. 

  I hope you get a chance to stamp today too. 


  1. Wendy, I do still love that paper but I have it noted in the Occasions Mini 2008 ... I don't see it in the 2007 catty but maybe I am missing it. I recently labeled and made a doc file of all my retired (and current) DSP and single-sided papers - wow, what a bunch I am hoarding. But hey, we won't be able to replace them so that's a good reason to keep them safe, huh!!

  2. oops, forgot to say that I love your card! Great use of the paper and the ribbon ... do you hoard ribbon like I do too? Just wondering ....

  3. Beautiful card, but I just had to tell ya, not to feel too bad about hoarding. I still have a couple pieces of a dsp called Sweet from the 05-06 IBC when we still had single sided dsp! As well as some from every pack I've bought since which isn't a whole lot.
