Dipping in to the stash with a little nostalgia. We have to admit that there are just some stamp sets we choose to hang on to and more than a few leftover bits and pieces of cardstock and patterned paper.
For the Tic Tac Toe Challenge (#114), the retired stamp set the Sky is the Limit was a perfect choice for the theme. The current sketch challenge over at The Paper Players (#542) truly fit the bill. As I used all retired products, I decided to add this to the Retro Rubber Challenge (#159). A wonderful combination.
And this is the result:
- Focal Point: (2⅜”) Circle. The Bi-Plane stamp from the Sky is the Limit stamp set was stamped with Early Espresso ink on to a piece of Naturals Ivory cardstock and then die-cut with the matching Layering Circles Die.
- Circle Mat: (2⅞”) die-cut from the center of the Brushed Metallic Copper cardstock Accent Mat (5¼” x 4”) with the next size up Circle Die.
- Background Side Panel – Left: (1¾” x 3⅞”) Copper Metallic patterned sheet from the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper.
- Background Side Panel – Right: (4” x 3⅞”) Crumb Cake subtle patterned sheet from the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper. The sentiment, The Sky is the Limit, from the same named stamp set was stamped in the lower right potion with Early Espresso ink.
All of the elements were adhered to approximate the 90 degree flip of the sketch. I chose a Naturals Ivory Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) to carryforward the vintage look.
Masculine stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! are always keepers in my stash. Haven’t used this one in a long time. It was nice to give it some love.
