Some Retiring Reminders!

I thought I would share with you a creation I made from my Stamp A Stack this past weekend. I love the Crushed Curry, Whisper White, and Basic Black color combination!

We used the fabulous Starburst Sayings Stamp Set and Framelit Dies, one bundle I will surely miss! I think these work so well together with the 2" Circle Punch as well. This card came together so quickly, but the contrasting colors really makes it pop! If you haven't picked up this fabulous Sweet Dreams Designer Series Paper yet, don't miss your chance. Pick some up today! The patterns are so versatile and fun!

A Spring Gift!

Good morning, I glad you stopped by today. I have a fun floral card to share today that I think really has a touch of spring. This card was also a part of my Stampin' Jackie Class last month. There are several items on this card that are retiring, but I love them all the same!

This card features the Indescribable Gift stamp set plus retiring Coastal Cabana with some contrasting Lost Lagoon. I wanted to create a card that could be used for many different purposes. I feel like this could easily be an inspirational card, a sympathy card, or just a note to someone special to say hello I'm thinking about you. I colored in the main floral image from the Indescribable Gift Stamp Set using the 2013-2015 In Color Stampin' Write Markers and the 2014-2016 In Color Stampin' Write Markers. Then I added a bit of the Flower Pot Designer Series Paper as a layering and of course used the Labels Collection Framelit Dies which I am sorry to see go, but I know more new Framelit Dies will be coming our way and I can't wait to try them out!

    Pals Blog Hop - Out with the Old!

     
    Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May where we are preparing for the retirement of some Stampin' Up! products.  Though it may be goodbye to some very loved supplies, it will make room for the much anticipated new catalog products.  We hope you enjoy the Pals' creative projects.

    You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Wendy Klein at Doggone Delightful Stampin', number 14 on the Pals Hop.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.
    For today's post I have two cards to share with you, the first featuring the fabulous Snapshot Stamp Set and the Flashback Designer Series Paper. Both of these items I am sad to see go. The Snapshot Stamp Set is such a fun one that I plan on using in my scrapbooking, whenever I get the chance to sit down and begin again. I love the detailing of this camera.
    To add a bit of a finishing touch on this card I pulled out my Crystal Effects for some shine to the lens. I really think that Crystal Effects adds a bit of something special to the above card and although I didn't color in the camera, I think it still reads cleanly. I tend to get attached to designer series paper again and again. Each new catalog has me running for new packs and I usually don't finish up the previous packs before the new patterns arrive. I have used this pack several times and I hope that I keep pulling from it even after it's gone.
    My second card features one of my favorite colors that is now retiring. Pistachio Pudding will soon be gone for good (one can hope it will come back in the future!), I simply love how soft yet bright this green is and it makes boy cards a breeze for me. For this card I combined Pistachio Pudding and Pacific Point for this fun Baby Boy card. Now don't worry, this stamp set, Something for Baby is still sticking around, but I used it to feature some of the Pistachio Pudding items - the ink and the Thick Baker's Twine. When I first saw the 2013-2015 In Colors I thought I would reach for the Strawberry Slush more than any other colors, but I quickly learned who my first reaction doesn't always pan out in the long run. I will certainly miss the 2013-3015 In Colors, but I can't wait to start using out newest In Colors, they are going to add a lot of pop to our lives and creations!

    The next stop is Peggy Noe at prettypapercards, number 16 on the Pals Blog Hop!  Thanks for visiting; I hope to see you at next month’s Pals Hop!

    A Beautiful Spring Day!

    Good morning and welcome to the weekend! I love getting some crafty time into my weekend, and although it doesn't happen as much as I wish it would, I enjoy every minute of it. Today I am working on my next Stamp A Stack Class which will take place on May 17th, but I realize I haven't yet shared all of my creations from my last Stamp A Stack.

    This card features the Sheltering Tree stamp set plus retiring Pistachio Pudding and Baked Brown Sugar, plus the wonderfully bright Daffodil Delight. I wanted to create a fun and happy card that would make someone smile, and this 'Thankful for You' seems to capture that. I love this color combination, and although I will miss these colors I am so excited for the five new additions to our color family! I hope to share more about those colors and some samples soon!

    A Spring Note

    Good morning! We are finally starting to get what seems to be a bit of Spring weather here in Kansas and I am loving it! Spring is filled with colors and nature, and when the two mix it is always wonderful!

    That was my inspiration for today's card, Spring! I used our stunning Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper and the fabulous Sophisticated Serifs Photopolymer Stamp Set. When I saw this stamp set in the new Occasions Catalog I knew I would need to pick it up, the uses of this set seem endless! I used some of my initials to create the above card for myself as an example, but I can see this becoming an entire gift set for a friend!

    Today is the last day to take advantage of these fabulous deals with the Butterfly Thinlits Dies! You can order the Butterfly Thinlits Dies at a 15% discount OR you can order any of the three offered bundles that are already discounted and choose your choice of three wonderful Sale-A-Bration items!
