Stampin' Addicts Last Chance Blog Hop - Just Sports

It's time for Stampin' Addicts Last Chance Blog Hop. This blog hop showcases all the wonderful stamp sets that will be retiring at the end of this month! DISCLAIMER: if you don't already have these stamp sets you will by the end of the hop!

If you are just joining the hop I'll lead you to the next stop at the end of this post. If not then you just came from Debra's Heartfelt Inkspiration and saw all the great projects using Nursery Necessities.

I was bummed when I saw the retiring list and saw they were phasing out all the cute little sports sets ... having two boys this are very well used in my house! I picked Just Baseball, Just Soccer and Just Basketball to showcase today.

This first card I made with Just Soccer:

The colors are a bit off but I used Basic Black, Sage Shadow and Whisper White. This would be a great little card to have a gift certificate in. It measures 3x6. You can't see the details to well but the mini black stars are crimped as well as the base sage shadow cardstock. Score and the soccer balls are all embossed with black embossing powder.

This next card was made using Just Baseball ... one of my favorite sets!


I wanted this one to have the worn out look so I distressed the base and the not quite navy cardstock pieces. I also used my big shot to emboss the lines on the base. Added the hat with the saying and topped it off with some buttons! I love how it turned out!!

Here is my last project, it use Just Basketball and the Big Shot.



It's my favorite of this trio. I made the card holder using the box #2 die and cutting out 2 which I taped back to back. I decorated the outside of the box and made then matching 3x3 cards.

Hope you enjoyed the projects I shared today and now hop on over to to check out the next stop which is Melissa's Fun Time Stampin' and she is using my favorite all time stamp set ever JUST JAWING!! Happy Stamping!
