Yesterday Stampin' Up! announced it's 2012 stamp set retirement list. I'm only sad about a couple of the sets that are going away. As for the rest, I say... SEE YA!! Give me something NEW!! I LOVE new stamp sets!!! One set that I will miss (and I will NOT get rid of!) is Extreme Elements. It is my go-to guy stamp set. Back in January I made a bunch of "extreme" boy cards. So in honor of the loss of one of my faves, I thought I would share them with you this week.
Stamps: Extreme Elements, Grunge Rock, Extreme Skateboard (retired)
Paper: Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Retired DSP (like retired years and years ago!!)
Accessories: Circle Punch, Star Punch, Silver Brad, Texturz Plate
I just love all the stamp images in Extreme Elements. I think I used every one on this card!! I even chose Extreme Elements as the set I want to use in the Stampin' Addicts Retirement Blog Hop happening the last weekend of April. I love it that much!! The "happy birthday" sentiment comes from the Grunge Rock set, which is also on the chopping block.
