I hope you are enjoying the Last Chance Items.  Some are almost gone because of the great discounts.  Today’s project uses a few of them.  It is the Marigold Moments Bundle, the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper, and the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Stamp and Die Bundle

I am writing this on Tuesday morning as the sale prices go live.  So I hope these products are still available.  Wanting to showcase some products that are retiring may bit me!  But….if you already have the products then you have a new idea for them.  Hopefully both are viable options.

The Bundle showcased here is the Marigold Moments Bundle from the Mini Catalog.  I stamped the flowers, which are a two step process, using Rich Razzleberry Ink for the solid color.  Then added the detailed stamp using Merry Merlot.  I was pleasantly shocked and awed at how well these two colors layered with each other.  If you have this set, or purchase it, try mixing unexpected colors and see what surprising and wonderful results you achieve.

The greenery was stamped using Evening Evergreen Ink and die cut.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise the flowers but adhered the leaves to the background.

Extra Stamps and Dies

For the great stitched background for the flowers, I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  They are on the retiring list also, but are discounted.  The stitching shows very well on the White card stock and is a bright background for the darker flowers.

The simple one word sentiment is from the Sentimental Park stamp set.  Thankfully this wonderful set is carrying over.  So no worries there!  It is stamped with Merry Merlot ink directly onto the White layer.  These great flowers did not need anything large on the front with them.

Papers and Embellishments

The gorgeous mix of Merry Merlot and Rich Razzleberry, with a touch of Blackberry Bliss, results in this DSP.  This sheet is from the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper.  Sadly it also is retiring.  All of the DSP, or almost all,  retires at the end of a catalog period.  This one is simply beautiful and fit these flowers perfectly.  And of course the other colors came from the paper.  My card base is Rich Razzleberry with the layer of White to help differentiate between the base and the DSP.  That thin layer gives a little pop to the light spots in the DSP.

To complete this card I debated on a few embellishments.  After looking it over, I really noticed how the white popped between the base and DSP as I mentioned above.  So to play with that idea I added a single Pearl to the larger front flower.  That is very minimal on embellishments for me but I like it.  And I hope you do as well.
