Stampin' Addicts Retiring Stamps Blog Hop 2013 Need for Speed

Stampin' Addicts Retiring Stamps Blog Hop 2013

Welcome to another fun Blog Hop hosted by the Stampin' Addicts. This weekend, we are enjoying a last "hurrah" with some of our favorite retiring stamps. Whether you have arrived from Carmen's blog or starting here, just know that all of our blogs are linked together. This way, you can easily travel from site to site and also revisit the hop at a later date.

Need for Speed
(wood 122715, CM 122717)
Today, I'm using a guy-friendly set called Need for Speed. With two sons in the house, two brothers, lots of male cousins and a hubby who used to work in the fighter jet industry - I new this set would see a lot of ink. I'll probably have to keep this one out of the sale bin for a while :)

First is a card created using the ATV of this set along with a sentiment from Solo Para Ti (also retiring).  If you like to color, you can stamp these images in black and color them in using your favorite medium. Of course, the images are detailed enough that you don't really have to. This time the image is simply stamped in Cajun Craze.

My second card makes use of the fighter jet heat embossed in Pewter (it looks a little silver-ish in the photo). The patterned paper used here is from our Print Poetry Paper Stack. I also snuck in a strip of our new Epic Day Washi tape… I couldn't help it. It was just the touch the card needed!

Last, but not least is a scrapbook page sharing the speedboat. We enjoy visiting a  local restaurant called Grills. Not only is the food good (the tuna tacos shown below are delish!), but it is located directly on the riverfront so the view is wonderful. It's always on the to-do list when family visits! Another cool thing about the place is that people often arrive in boats instead of cars :)

This project also uses pages from Parker's Patterns Designer Series Paper

Well, I hope you enjoyed these projects and found something you can use :) Now it's time to move on to the next blog. If you are following the hop in order, your next stop is Debbi's blog where she is sharing projects made with a sure-to-be-missed sentiment set, Word Play:

And just in case you are a "read the magazine from the back forward" kind of person, your next stop is Carmen's blog, where she is sharing projects made with super cute Little Friends:

Thanks for joining us on this blog hop! Our next one is scheduled for June where we will be celebrating the new stamp sets in our 2013-2014 Catalog. Caio!
