Card Recipe:

  • Stamp Sets:  Crazy for Cupcakes, Tiny Tags
  • Cardstock:  whisper white, real red, pumpkin pie, old olive, tempting turquoise
  • Ink:  basic black, markers:  real red, pumpkin pie, old olive, tempting turquoise

Family Accessories

I saw a card similar to this by Arielle Gordon and decided to try it out.

This card uses the "baja breeze" paper that has previously retired but will now be coming back to order as of July 1st.  I can't wait since this is one of my favorite colors to use.

Card Recipe:

  • Stamp Sets:  Family Accessories
  • Cardstock:  whisper white, night of navy, sahara sand, certainly celery, baja breeze
  • Designer Paper:  Urban Garden (retired) - this color is baja breeze
  • Ink:  night of navy, certainly celery, baja breeze, certainly celery marker

Wedding Bliss

I have seen so many different variations of this bride and groom that I had to make some for myself.  The bride and groom are made using the "Full Heart" punch.

I started with creating my heart bride and groom.  The White heart is cut from "Scalloped Heart of Heart Embosslit" (from the Occasion Mini - still available to order) love this little embosslit.  I then embossed some whisper White cardstock using an embossing folder from Provo Craft, then punched the heart out of the cardstock.  I attached these together using 3 small brads, these brads were colored with pearl embossing powder using a fun and quick tutorial from Deena at "Be Creative" that you can find HERE.  To make the groom heart, I punched a heart out of basic black cardstock.  I then cut down the middle of the heart (almost to the point) and folded back the edges to make lapels.  I added 2 black brads and added a small amount of black ribbon that I tied in a knot.  The background paper is custom made using whisper white cardstock stamped with Wedding Bliss all over with versamark ink and embossed with the same pearl embossing powder as the brads above.  The back white layer is embossed using the Perfect Details Texturz Plate.  I really enjoyed putting this card together and trying a few additional colors. 

Here are a few blogs where I got inspiration for this card.

The wait is over...

It's that time of year again when we have to say goodbye to some old and favorite friends and hello to new ones.  

The new catalog will come out on July 1st and there are so many exciting things to look forward to.  To look forward to the new catalog, Stampin' Up! has come out with their "Last Chance" list.  These lists are the items that Stampin' Up! will no longer carry after June 30.

The "Last Chance" lists are here.

 Download Last Chance Stamp Sets

Download Retired Accessories

Download Last Chance Definitely Decorative

Some new things to know as you look at this years retired accessory list....

1.  Check out the reconfiguration list.  This means the accessories will be available in the next catalog but will be changed.

2.  Notice the other column that shows some as being DISCOUNTED!   That's exciting (Cottage Wall DSP is one, some's crazy!). 

Now, the accessories are first come first serve.  Some things will sell out FAST.  So if there is anything you'd like make sure you order right away.  Of course, you can always order online HERE.  The other thing worth noting is that the stamps will all be available until the end of June!

Make sure that you download each list and sit down with your catalog or visit the customer website to find those things that you must have before they are no longer available.
