Everything Eleanor Unusually….

Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles – Everything Eleanor Unusually….

Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles - Everything Eleanor Unusually.... side profile

Well, my stamp shelves are very sad right now. A couple of weeks ago, when the Retiring List was announced, I cleared off my shelves of anything that was going and as such, I’m now at depleted sets!

But while there is the downside of me saying goodbye to some much beloved sets, it does alert me to some previous favourites that haven’t had a look in recently.

And Everything Eleanor is one of those!

I love the swirl, it’s a great backdrop sort of image, and while I don’t usually use it with such striking colours as this, I absolutely adore the combination of colours.

However, Very Vanilla is ridiculously hard to photograph at times, particularly when you have punch outs in the same colour, so I gave up working with the white background and dulled down the exposure on my camera to capture the true tones of all the colours – Chocolate Chip and Pear Pizzazz are paired with it.

I’m happy with the stamps that have carried over, and can’t wait for the new catalogue to come out!

  4. very pretty and I love your colour combination. Does that mean that when stamps are retired you as demo cannot use them anymore??
    I know a good home for them.

    Lovely Sam. This is a set I keep looking at. Might have to think seriously. But there are so many we want aren’t there?

  6. I love the colour combo and surprisingly I don’t have this set. I really think I should add it to my next demo order! Linda x

  7. Karen S says:

    You did a good job photographing your card they colours really stand out and look ‘true’. Colour combo really works and looks really nice. It is my first experience of retiring products and I was disappointed to miss out on so many after that fiasco with the SU web site a few weeks ago – but having seen some of the new products that are coming up, I have already started making my list – can’t wait!

    Oh, so pretty. Beautiful for wedding or anniversary. Thanks for sharing your time and creativity. I enjoy visiting with you each morning and use many of your projects. Have a joy filled week-end.

  9. This set is very beautiful as it is versatile, this swirl really adds a touch of elegance to your cards and those flowers and pearls just complete the design so beautifully.
    Thank you for sharing.

  10. What a great job photographing your pretty card, I love it. Thank you for sharing. Have a nice week-end, bye.

  12. Patricia says:

    the colors! Thank you for another wonderful idea!

  13. Diana Whitney says:

    So sweet. Love the color combo!

  14. Those colors are gorgeous. Sam, you have a spectacular eye!

  15. Kay Jantz says:

    And I am not all that sad to see any of the retiring stamps go. Some I am outright pleased to see go, some I felt were outdated a couple of years at least. Excited about what is coming in the new cattie! Love your card and with one of my more used stamp sets! Great colors.
