Sweet Shop DSP and Stickers

This series of cards were made from the Sweet Shop Designer Series Paper and Sweet Shop Stickers.  I purchased the stickers, but was unsure if I would ever do anything with them.   I saw some cards by  Deena Boos, a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, that I thought were just as sweet as the paper itself, so I used hers as my inspiration for a couple of them and followed her design on some as well.

I made a dozen cards total, making them all a little different.  This is just a sampling.

Today is the last day to purchase either the paper or the stickers!  They are from the 2012 Occasions Mini and did not make it into the new catalogue.  It was a fun series of papers to play with.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping.

Summer Smooches Notecards

I am loving doing these little 3" X 3" notecards.  Probably because they are quick!  I think they would be perfect to tuck in a little thank you gift.  Stampin' Up! also sells the little square envelopes to go with them.  But you could also make your own with the new diagonal scoring plate.

My paper daisies were daubed with white craft ink.  It barely makes a difference, but for some reason the ink gives the paper daisies a cleaner look.

Stamp Set:  Bright Blossoms
Punches:  Postage Stamp, Boho Blossoms, Blossom Builder (leaves in centre card)
Paper:  Summer Smooches DSP, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Island Indigo
Other Accessories:  Paper Daisies, brads, dimensionals.

I think all these products will still be current in June!

Thanks for stopping by!

So here is the RETIRED LIST!

Available while quantities last.  There are many products on sale, so order soon to avoid disappointment.  Items with and "*" are being reconfigured and will re-appear in the new catalogue with some changes
All other items are not returning!

The new catalogue will be coming out June 1.  Let me know if you would like me to reserve a copy for you! I can hardly wait to see what they have in store for us!

I was trying to get this to come up as a hyperlink, but the whole document showed!  So, I am hoping you are able to enlarge it a little for better viewing!  Some of this computer stuff is a bit of a learning curve for me LOL!

Well Worn Young Vermillion

Young Vermilion...retiring at end of May.  He's only $9.95 wood mount #124092.

I chose the Well Worn Designer Series Paper and pulled out the Cajun Craze colour for my base of the card and the Not Quite Navy for my mat.  The bird was stamped with Early Espresso on Very Vanilla cad stock.  Tiny Tags stamp set was used for the little tags.  Hemp Twine and metallic brads were used to embellish this masculine card.

I have seen many lovely cards done with this stamp set.  I'm sorry to see it go, along with many, many others!  But it won't be long before we get to create with new images in the new catalogue!!  You can view the retired list by clicking on the Going Going Gone image on my side bar.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

So, have some fun, get creative!

Purse-onality with Summer Smooches in Real Red

Just a short post today.  I'm getting ready for our local Mining for Memories scrapbooking convention.  But I wanted to get at least one of the pictures of the purses up.

I love it in red!  Reminds me of summer picnic!  The flower was made with the five petal punch and the boho blossoms punch.

Ahhh....thoughts of summer!

Send Me Soaring - Latch Card

A clean and simple look with a fun opening use the gate fold and Scallop Oval Frame.  Just adhere the scallop part to the top half and the oval part to the bottom part.  Easy to do!

Send Me Soaring is available until April 30 in the Occasions Mini.  Hope this set makes it to the 2012/2013 catalogue, which comes out June 1 !!

This set also makes me yearn for the sweet days of summer when the warm winds bring out kids and their kites.

Happy Stamping!
