Always

The retiring list of Stampin’ Up! products was published yesterday afternoon.  I have a link to it in my Online Store after this post.  Or you can simply click on the Shop tab at the top of the page and go there anytime.  REMINDER:  There are quite a lot of products that are carrying over.  But if they are part of a bundle currently, they will show that retiring!!!  That is just you can no longer get it in a bundle with the 10% discount after the new catalog goes live.

I am sharing one of the retiring stamp sets from the Occasions catalog.  So do not panic, it is still available now.  It is the Easter Set, His Grace.  I love this set for the sentiments and the images.  I do not think it has been given near enough love by folks.  So I am sharing it today for a non-Easter card.  I hope it will inspire you to try it.

 

His Grace, 148676

This was really a pretty quick card to make.  It is stamped and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  If you follow my blog you know already how much I love coloring with these guys.  This was very simple and I like that.

The corners are punched using one end of the Trio Corner Punch just to give it a little attention other than adding ribbon or other embellishments.

The sentiment is from Accented Blooms, a sweet set from the Annual Catalog.  I love the look of stamping the sentiment across a focal point.

Thank you for visiting today.  I do have the link to the Retiring Lists and hope you will grab anything you are interested in right away so as not to be disappointed.  The retiring In Colors will be among the first items to sell out.  I also have a HOST CODE listed below if you would like to place an order.

Tea Together

I have a cute cup of tea to share with you today!  All I need to go with it is a lovely scone.  I have traveled across England and Scotland eating my way in scones!  So anytime I see the lovely Tea Together stamp set I want a scone to go with the tea.  Alas, no scones for today’s card but there is a sweet rose instead.

 

Tea Together, 148779

 

I love the unexpected of the rose inside the tea cup.  I die cut it with the Tea Time Framelits.  They were part of Sale-A-Bration and is supposed to carry over to the next annual catalog.  The rose is the only part of the card that is die cut.  I wanted a simpler look for today.  When I adhered the rose, I straight cut across the bottom of the rose to match the cup edge.  Also, I did not put adhesive on the leaves, only the rose.  I sort of lifted up on the leaves to give them the 3D look.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched it out with the 1 1/8″ scallop circle punch.  The heart is the Heart Epoxy Droplets that I colored with the Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend.  I love these hearts, and the ability to make them any color you want.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I very much appreciate you looking at my projects.  I also, love to read your comments.

As always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

Just Because

I have found myself looking over the stamp sets I have from the Annual Catalog.  As I look at them, I am wondering which will carry over and which will I be sad to see go if they do not.  Unfortunately we must say goodbye to some in order to add new.

Ones that we know will not carry over are the Host Rewards Stamp Sets.  So I have used my favorite one for today’s card.  It is the Just Because set.

 

Just Because, 148786

 

I love the stamps from this set.  They are all flowers with a sweet and very useful sentiment.  I consider this card a Clean and Simple card.  And any of the stamps in this set, Just Because, would make a beautiful similar card.

The only thing I added from just Ink and Paper is the Embossing Folder.  This one is the Tin Tiles Embossing Folder which was a carryover from the Holiday Catalog.  I have my fingers crossed that it carries on into the next Annual Catalog!  I love the texture it gives to a card.  I have not been using my embossing folders lately.  I have been more focused on the beautiful designer series paper that Stampin’ Up! carries.  When I made yesterday’s card which used the Dot to Dot Embossing Folder, I realized I had missed the folders.  So of course I used another one today.

Thank you for stopping in today.  Please return tomorrow for another new project.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.  And it is a pretty short list today!

Thinking Of You

I am back to my bright colors with a quick but dimensionally card.  (I’m not really sure that is a word!)  I used the Dot To Dot Embossing Folder and it really adds a punch to the card.  Here is is:

 

Dot To Dot Textured Embossing Folder, 148533

 

I paired the DOTS with my favorite dot designer series paper from the Share What You Love Designer Paper.  And added a few more dots in the Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins.

This is one of those very versatile cards.  You can really change it up just by adding a different sentiment.  I used the Wonderful Romance stamp set for the flowers and sentiment in the circle.  I wanted to cover the center of the doily and needed a large circle.  So I had to do the background stamping to justify the size of the white circle.  I like having the soft leaves in the background there.

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another quick card.   All of the supplies I used are at the bottom of the post.  Have a great day!!

All The Best

I am trying to use some older products as talk is beginning about the next Annual Catalog.  I know we will be losing some awesome stamp sets.  So I am working my way back through some sets.  Today’s card is a carry over set from the Holiday Catalog, First Frost.

 

First Frost, 148420

 

I love using stamp sets that have versatility.  This set was in the Holiday Catalog, but obviously has other uses than the winter holidays.  I have paired it with the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration.  I love this paper because of the black and white on the opposite side from the butterflies.

Another product I do not use often enough is the Tailored Tag Punch.  I really like the versatility of it.  It is a tad larger than some of the others, so it holds a bit larger stamped sentiment.  Also, it is very easy to cut a background for it due to the straight sides.  Here I just secured a little bit larger Basic Black piece of card stock and used my paper snips to cut the edge.  Easy Peasy!!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I appreciate it very much.  All of the products are listed at the bottom of the page.  And the Botanical Butterfly DSP is still available for FREE with a $50.00 order through the end of the  month.

A Little Note for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around GREEN. We are excited to share our creations with you today.  There’s a wonderful variety of styles and occasions celebrated in this hop! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

For my take on our Hop Theme, I took the name seriously!!!  I went with GREEN, GREEN, and more GREEN.  It is nice to get outside of your normal comfort zone.  I hope you like it.

 

Butterfly Bounty Thinlits, 148536

 

I used three shades of green for this project.  The base is Mossy Meadow, the background layer is Pear Pizzaz and the top layer of the butterflies is Soft Sea Foam.  The designer series paper is the Floral Romance DSP.  It contains both the Mossy Meadow and the Pear Pizzaz.  So instead of trying to decide which piece to use, I opted for both of them.

Of course the star of the show is the Butterfly Bounty Thinlits.  They are fabulous.  There are 20 dies in the set!  The large one I used is actually two.  They could be used individually or layered on top of one another like I did here.  An almost “must have” is the Multi-purpose adhesive sheets to easily adhere these two pieces together, and add it to the card as well.  It makes life much less frustrating!!

The die is actually two butterflies larger than the three that are attached together.  The one on the bottom and one extra were attached also.  I decided it was too large and cut the two off.  Then I decided I needed the smaller of the two to hold my little sentiment banner.

The sentiment is from the second butterfly bundle in the Occasions catalog, Butterfly Gala.  It is punched out with the Classic Label Punch.  Of course I needed to add just a touch of bling to my card.  Butterflies are so elegant that I knew pearls were the proper accessory for these beauties !

I have included all of the products I used at the bottom of the post.
