Here is a look at yet another retiring Stampin' Up! Stamp. This time it is a large background stamp called Hello, Doily.
This card was sent to me my a member of my Stamping Family Tracy Spangler when this stamp first became available.
Background Stamps are huge measuring 4 5/8" x 4 3/4" and you can get in either wood-mount or clear-mount. I really love the clear-mount stamps and they (clear-mount) are ususally what I purchase. The exception with me is with the background stamps I usually always get them in wood-mount.
These stamps are so big they require Block F which is $16.95. Now with your clear blocks you can use over and over that isn't the issue. I just find it hard to get the cling on smoothly, so that I have a good fit. My 2 cents about background stamps.
This card features the retired color from last year Pretty in Pink in the cardstock and ribbon. I will have to admit I loved that color and still miss it.
So that is why if you like this background stamp you must get ASAP before it retires and is gone forever. This year for the first time when we run out of stamps on the retired list we will not be making more they will be retired.
