Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop – Saying Goodbye

Time for another hop around the creative side with a Create with Connie and Mary blog hop!

Today, our theme is about saying goodbye to retiring Stampin’ Up products.

Of course, my list is long, but I kept it super short and sweet for this post.

I went with a Christmas favorite that’s retiring –

libbystamps, stampin up, Snow Place, Snow Friends Framelits, Fruit Stand DSP, Falling Petals EF, CCMC Blog Hop

This cute little fun set, Snow Place stamp set and the coordinating,Snow Friends Framelits are both retiring.

This embossing folder, Falling Petals, the Designer Series Paper, Fruit Stand (yes, a non-Christmas paper for a traditional Christmas card!!!), and the thick bakers twine are all leaving us as well. I’ll miss the stamp set and framelit bundle the most.

We have so much talent on our team. Check them out to see what their favorites are and what you can not live with out before its gone for good.

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Color It

I am quite honored to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop for a couple of months!

wi15sathopwelcome

Our theme is Color It. That could be lots of things! Stamped images, dies cuts, coloring paper.

Perfect timing to pull out this Sale-a-Bration DSP!

I made a 3 1/2 x 5 fold over acetate card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Inside the Lines, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Watercooler Pencils, CCMC Blog HopIt’s pretty. It’s fresh! I used the new Watercooler Pencils to color the flowers first. I went over them with a blender pen to soften to look of everything.

I added the acetate to the back of the DSP, then adhered it to Daffodil Delight. For a little added weight to the card front, I added the sentiment and double strips (one on front, one underneath) of card stock along the edge. I also put one on the card base for jotting down a note.

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – actually, none!
  • Card Stock – Daffodil Delight, Basic Black
  • DSP – Inside the Lines (FREE, Sale-a-Bration DSP)
  • Ink – none either!
  • Dies – Sunshine Wishes Thinlits
  • Other – Watercooler Pencils, , Blender Pens, Basic Black Baker’s Twine
