Andrea’s favorite retiring things!!

And giveaway!! (Read the entire blog for how to enter!)

I’m not Oprah (if I was I could literally buy Stampin’ Up!), nor do I give much away (unless you are a hostess OR check this out) … BUT, I can tell you what I think are the best products and with luck, save you some money.

Imagine me in front of a TV audience … today on the show is “Andrea’s top 10 favorite retiring things” (insert applause and cheering). Okay, settle down, settle down … let’s get started.


Number 10

And Many More – Clear Stamp Set      Price: WAS $27.00 NOW $20.25     Item#  134276  

You’ll love the mix of greetings and fonts in this fun wood mount set. They’re small enough to be an accent but large enough to stand on their own.

Our clear-mount stamps are made of the same high-quality red rubber as our wood-mount stamps, but they’re repositionable. They’re precut and ready to go. Temporarily mount these stamps on clear blocks for stamping, then remove them for space-saving storage. You’ll only need one set of blocks for all your clear-mount stamps (blocks sold separately). Our premium red rubber will last for years and give a superior stamped impression each time. The stamps come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

Quantity: 23 rubber stamps
