fond farewell to some last chance stamp sets and colors

I wanted to play around with some of my favorite stamp sets on Stampin Up's last chance list and some of the retiring colors too.

Love this stamp set Humor in high heels, might be a keeper in the collection.  I grabbed some mellow moss and paper pieced the dress in mellow moss prints dsp from hostess items.  (notice pic above, totally lost my ribbon! yikes)  I used color wheel to match with brocade blue which is also on the way out.

I used Garden Whimsy,  sad to see go- great set to use Rock n' Roll technique.  The color scheme Orchid Opulance and Pixie Pink.

I kept the cards fairly simple as I was trying to come up with some quick and easy cards for my fond farewell card buffet at end of the month.
