Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Newly Retired Challenge

Rain rain go away...come again another day.
Welcome to the FANCY FRIDAY BLOG HOP for a
"Newly Retired" Challenge!
My fancy friends and I are BACK! We loved working with each other so much that we decided to continue on with an all new blog hop to inspire you in fun new ways! Each month on the last Friday, we will bring to you new challenges of all kinds (color,sketch, stamp focus, etc) that you can even participate in!  This month we are doing a NEWLY RETIRED CHALLENGE! Stampin' UP just released this week their retired product list and we wanted to show some ideas with them so that you might run out and buy it before their gone!
Bonus: SOME of these retired products are also on sale right now! Be sure to check it out!
So I have a confession to make....I have had this stamp set for over a year and never once inked it up until this month! Sad I know! It is called Bootiful Occasions and it is adorable! I have seen many great cards made with this stamp set. I decided to use the rainboot partly because it has been raining so much this month! I colored the boot with a blender pen and Crushed Curry ink. I wish I had rainboots like these! I then paired it with the Back to Black Designer Series Paper (also retiring), Crushed Curry Baker's Twine and a 2.5" Circle Punch in Bermuda Bay. Those super cute raindrops fit the boot!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspire you!

I also love the boots- but couldn't find enough uses for them. What I am sad to be losing is the 2013-14 In-colors. I used them in my retired-list inspired project.

Thanks for all your inspiration. I love seeing your posts in my feed.
