Final Farewell Blog Hop!

(1 vote, average 5.00 out of 5)

It's time for another Paper Wings Blog Hop! This month, we are paying tribute to our favorite stamps on the Final Farewell List. Yes, all the stamps you see on this hop will soon be retiring... you only have until the end of June to add them to your collection!!

There are so many great sets retiring, but I had to feature one of my all-time favorites sets, Skinny Birds! This was the FIRST stamp set I purchased from The Angel Company, and still one of my favorites! I am sad to see it go!


For this first card I used The Angel Company's free digital paper, Robyn, with Kraft and Mocha Divine cardstocks. I love paper-piecing this mug! I think of all the times I've used this image (and I've used it A LOT!), I've never actually colored it! The sentiment is from another retiring set that I love, Ordinary Greetings.


On this one, I used Catelynn paper with cardstock from the DCWV Jewel Stack. This sentiment is also from Ordinary Greetings. My poor old sewing machine has been giving me fits, but it cooperated long enough to add some zig-zag stitching to this card! The bird is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and colored with Copics.

Enjoy "hopping" to these blogs to see what these amazingly talented ladies have created:


Thanks for visiting! I would love to know what you think! And if you would like to know more about The Angel Company stamps and paper, or wish to place an order, please contact me!

I am in denial that Skinny Birds is retiring. I LOVE that stamp set. And, I ADORE what you've done with it. I have never paper-pieced the mug but you can bet that I will now. wow- that's awesome! And, the coloring on your bird is fabulous. super cards!

How sweet - I loved this set too but didn't use it as much as I thought I would. The blue DP goes perfect with the bird and great idea to use the free download paper on the cup card. I love Kraft CS and the brown goes so well.

Skinny Birds is another favorite of mine too. It's been ages since I've done any paper piecing - the mug is so awesome. And love the blue skinny bird - great job with the Copics - and the sewing!
