Every month I get excited to see what Stampin' Up! will come out with for the Best of 25 Years.  July's stamp set was Best of Shelli.  This stamp set has a collection of stamps that range from birthday to vintage.  All of them are past stamps except one which is a never-before-seen image.  The stamp set also includes a proof of purchase sticker and after 6 of them, you can redeem them for a FREE $14.95 stamp set of your choice.  All the "Best of" stamp sets are available for purchase until March 31, 2014. 

Here are my samples.  This first one I created for my Movement Card Class later this month.  Shelli showed us this at Convention, but of course I didn't get all the dimensions or "how to" directions and it took some trial and error to get it to work.  It uses the Peekaboo Frames Bigz L Die.  I like the old fashioned typewriter as I learned to type on something similar (now I'm aging myself), so of course I had to come up with a card.

 Here it is slid open slightly.  I used Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Real Red cs and ink.  The DSP is Modern Medley and a piece of 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon.  If you want directions, please email me at and I'll tell you how I figured it out.
 This card was a sample from my 135 Card Class (1 hour, 3 cards, $5).  Cute, simple and quick.  Summer Starfruit and Very Vanilla cs and Birthday Basics DSP.  Bermuda Bay, Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple ink.  Other stamp set was Yippee-Skippee.
 This was a free for all card.  Again designed for my 135 class, but everyone could do it however they wanted.  It used Whisper White cs and Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape.  I used the Gorgeous Grunge and Yippee Skippee stamp sets along with the Best of Shelli.  Ink colors were, Soft Suede, Pear Pizzazz, Island Indigo and Melon Mambo (to coordinate with the washi tape).  Single layer, quick and easy card.

Now it time to hop over to Susan Carlson's blog to see what she created with the Best of Shelli stamp set.  I'm sure you will love her creations.  If you get lost, there is a complete listing of participants on this blog tour below.  Click on any of the links or click on the box below.  Happy blog hopping.  Thanks for stopping and your comments.
