Saying Goodbye to Some
of my Favorite Stamps



Hi Everyone,

Well it seems to be a mad rush for everyone to get their orders in for the Nailed it stamp set found in the Occasions Catalog. It is one of the sets retiring at the end of May. I made a couple of cards that I wanted to share from class on Wednesday. I really liked taking the tool set and going more pink.

Pop of Pink DSP and Washi make a great
background.

I love pinks and grey together. Melon Mambo
really pops this project. 
I was thinking about how you stamp the tools twice to get the tools to look very realistic. Go through your other sets and think about how you can apply the same technique. Maybe the wheels on a wagon or the fenders on a motorcycle. It can be a fun crafting adventure. If you do create some projects this way, share them with me. I'd love to see what you come up with.


Another product I love is the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper. All of the patterns are so cute and can lend itself to lots of birthday fun. The Cool Treats set and framelits will still be in the new annual catalog, but not bundled for a 10% discount. I decided to create a project for a gift card in a little different way. 

Okay you can't have enough Bling. I love the
Sprinkles embellishments. A great buy
right now at $2.75

When you begin to open, surprise

I love the different fonts and greetings
for birthdays.
For this gift card project, the base measures Shimmery White  8 1/4" x 4 1/2" and scored at 3. You can score at 2 3/4" as well. It's up to you how much room you want for your gift card. The Watermelon Wonder mini card is cut at 8 1/2 x 2 3/4". From there, the other DSP pieces are 1/4" smaller.

You can check out many of the still available retiring items at Stampin' Up! Things are going fast. I just went on to see about something and wow, where did it go? Sold out, that's where, so be sure to grab those things on your list before it's too late. Don't miss out on these great Sprinkles Embellishments. They are wonderful!
