Hi Friends! I know that I already shared my “Top Ten Favourite Retiring Stamp Sets” with you, however, there are MORE sets retiring that I have loved creating with.
As the “Swirly Frames” stamp set is retiring, I wanted to focus on it a bit today, because I think it’s a great set to have in your collection.
I used the “Forever Blossoms” bundle, “Swirly Frames” set and for the sentiment, “Label Me Pretty”. Of course, the “Label Me Pretty” bundle retired last year and good news, “Forever Blossoms” is carried over into our new 2021-2022 catalogue. I just love the stamped stitches on the squares, thanks to the “Swirly Frames” set. I’ve combined my tutorial for the above card, along with three others from our Leader’s Project Sheet group, all featuring the “Swirly Frames” set.

Here’s another card I made using the Swirly Frames stamp set:
I combined the “Swirly Frames” with the Faux Mother of Pearl Technique, which also uses our retiring Frosted White Shimmer Mist Paint. This paint is already SOLD OUT but the Champagne (which is my favourite) is still available, while supplies last. The Champagne Shimmer Mist Paint would also work beautifully for the “Faux Mother of Pearl” technique.
Another great technique to use with the “Swirly Frames” stamps is the “Chalkboard Technique”:
Here are a few more examples of “Swirly Frames” cards and projects that I love, created by my fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators:
I think the “Swirly Frames” may have been a bit of a ‘sleeper’ in our catalogue and may be easy to miss or skim over. However, as you can see, the “Swirly Frames” set is incredibly versatile and can be used in a ton of different ways! Go onto Pinterest and search this stamp set – you will be amazed at all the beautiful cards made with it! So, if you don’t yet have this set, you may want to order it before it’s gone!
Enjoy the day, stay well & HAPPY STAMPING!
