While going through the retiring products and especially the Designer Series paper, I find those that I want to use again.  Today’s card is a mix of retiring and carry over.  It is the Sailing Home Suite.  The stamp set is carrying over, but sadly the DSP is retiring.  I made a quick card with mostly scraps of the paper.



I love the stripes.  There are more in the pack of paper, but these are the two I thought would work best here.  I layered two strips onto a piece of Whisper White and then onto the Night of Navy base.

The banner is stamped with the anchor from the Sailing Away stamp set.  I “stamped off” before stamping on the Whisper White card stock.  The ink is Balmy Blue as is the anchor behind the sentiment.  Except that one is stamped full strength.  I cut the banner using the Banner Triple Punch.

The sentiment is from the stamp set as well.  This is a one stamp set card.  I punched the layers using the 2″ and 2 1/4″ circle punches.  I tried a Night of Navy background circle but decided the Balmy Blue fit better against the navy stripe.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I have the measurements for my card just below and all of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.


  • Base of Night of Navy is 4 1/4 X 11
  • Whisper White is 4 X 5 1/4
  • Navy stripe DSP is 2 1/2 X 5 1/8
  • Balmy Blue Stripe DSP is 1 3/8 X 5 1/8
  • Banner is 2 X 4 before punching

Below are links to the two Retiring or Last Chance Lists.  Keep in mind, a Bundle may retire, but the stamp set and dies or punch can still carry over.  So look for the individual item.  Also, all of the Stampin’ Blends are not retiring.  It is only that in the new catalog, they will be sold in the combo pack only.  The only ones retiring are the 2018-2020 In Color ones.
