I have been focusing on stamp sets that are retiring. For a bit of a change of pace, I am using one that is not retiring.  It is the Hold On To Hope Bundle from the Occasions Catalog.  However……the bundle price is going away.  Both the stamp set and dies are carrying over, they just will not have a bundled together price of 10% off.  Any bundles you are still considering should be snatched up now and save.  Every little bit saved helps!


Hold On To Hope Bundle, 145969


I kept this card pretty clean and simple.  Don’t you just love the details on the Cross?  I stamped the cross in Soft Suede and then the detailed one in Crumb Cake, and cut it out with the matching die.

Note:  A must have for detailed dies is the Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheet.  I always make a mess of glue on intricately cut items and there is no mess with the adhesive sheets.  Yay!!

For the flower swatch I colored the stamp with Old Olive and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Markers.   To add some equal alignment, I added the little corner stamp in Old Olive as well.  I love the little guy!

Thank you so much for visiting with me today.  I very much appreciate your support and I love to hear from you.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Another Paper Pumpkin Special:  The March PP was so popular due to the special gift that it sold out.  So Stampin’ Up! has offered a great deal to replace that.  New Subscribers who sign up before April 10, will receive April and May for half price.  So 2 months for the price of 1.  A great deal.  Use my link HERE, and enter the code: SAVEFIFTY0418


It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
