Hello everyone. It is time for another Stamp Off challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me. This time we had to use our favorite retiring die set.
This was a hard challenge because there are so many stamp set and dies that are retiring that I love. In the end, I decided to go with the stamp set called Dear Doily and the matching dies called Doily Builder. This bundle was so popular that it is actually not available to purchase anymore.
I decided to use one of the new InColors for this card called Seaside Spray. It is a beautiful, soft blue with a bit of purple in it. It is definitely going to be a color I use often.
To make this card I first ran a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock through the Big Shot using the Subtle Embossing Folder. This folder is great for adding a bit of texture to your card. It reminds me of the textured cardstock we used to have. I colored the flowers using a Mint Macaron and Highland Heather marker, huffed on it to add some moisture and then stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock. Then I cut them out using the matching die. I stamped the doily in the middle using Highland Heather ink and punched that out using the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch. I cut out the background doily and backed it with a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Itty Bitty Birthdays and then layered everything together.
Now let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie‘s favorite retiring dies are.

To make this card I first cut out the doily used in the background with Grapefruit Grove cardstock using one of the Doily Builder Dies. Then I stamped the sentiment in Blueberry Bushel ink and punched it out using the 2″ Circle Punch. Then I punched out another circle in Blueberry Bushel cardstock using the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch. I colored the flower and stem using Stampin’ Up!® Write Markers in Blueberry Bushel and Call Me Clover and then cut it out using the matching die. I layered them all together and then added the bow using the 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon in Blueberry Bushel. I attached it using a Glue Dot.

Dear Doily is a stamp set that is in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. It has a set of matching dies called Doily Builder Thinlits and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. I have to say that Stampin’ Up!® has done some doily dies in the past that were hard to cut out. I almost decided not to get these because of that reason but went ahead anyway because I thought they were so pretty. I am so glad I did. I have no trouble cutting them out and they truly are beautiful and fun. There are a few different dies that cut out various doilies and there is one large die that just cuts out the inside of the doily. I love that Stampin’ Up!® is making so many different dies.
To make this card I first cut out the doily in Gorgeous Grape cardstock. I saved the middle the of cut to use it on the card. I like how it leaves just a slight line around it. I stamped the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch. I adhered that to a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock cut out using the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch. Lastly I cut out a circle using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch in Lemon Lime Twist. I layered each of these on top of each other using a Dimensional under the Gorgeous Grape circle to pop it up a bit. The Designer Series Paper is called Gingham Gala and is also in the 2019 Occasions Catalog.
