Thanks for joining us on another team blog hop. If you’ve found me by hopping along from Kerry Bunting’s blog, Welcome and thanks for checking out my page.
This month we wanted to share the retiring products from the current Annual Catalogue. I chose to use the retiring In Colors of Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink & Berry Burst. I have really loved using these colours over the last two years and will miss them when they’re gone but I’m equally excited for the In colors that are coming next month to replace them.
The stamp set I’ve chosen is Florentine Filigree which is such an elegant stamp set and is so simple to use. I have simply stamped the images and let them stand on their own. I stamped the sentiment “Thank You” on both cards and just used my papersnips to create two different types of banners but you can also use the triple banner punch to create one of the banners.

DID SOMEONE SAY SAVINGS? Everyone loves a good bargain, and Stampin’ Up! provides a great selection of savings to share. Check the Clearance Rack regularly to see what has been recently added and encourage your customers to do the same! I have listed a lot of products below and there are so many more available so check out these products and many more on my online store.
One of Stampin’ Up!’s goals is to surprise and delight us with fun, new creative experiences. And I think you’re going to absolutely love what they have up they’re sleeve this Autumn. Shelli Gardner, board chair and cofounder of Stampin’ Up!, has partnered with Paper Pumpkin to create a limited edition, nature-focused, Shelli-inspired kit.
Though Paper Pumpkin isn’t currently offered outside of North America, they wanted to share this very special kit with everyone. And because all the global markets have long been curious about the Paper Pumpkin program, they knew we would love to have this unique opportunity to see what it’s all about.
The look and feel of this kit is all Shelli. It’s elegant and feminine, and so full of natural details that you’ll probably just want to take a walk, breathe in the fresh air, and then go home and stamp every card in the kit. And the box it comes in? We predict that you’ll be keeping it . . . like . . . forever. Wait and see.
If you would like one of these kits you can order it online from May 15th at my online store.
Thanks for joining the Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #5. You may have joined me from Kristy’s Cards blog, so welcome.
This month’s Blog Hop is a layout challenge. I chose to use some products that I am fairly confident that will be retiring in May. I have used the Share What you Love Designer Series Paper which is absolutely a gorgeous pack of card stock. Normally our DSP is paper weight, however this pack is a thicker weight than our normal DSP. In this pack you get 4 sheets of each patterned paper so you get a lot of card in this pack which is great as you want to just keep using it. Some sheets have some shimmer on them as well.
I have paired the dsp with the coordinating stamp set “Love what you do” in Berry Burst Ink. The card came together quite easily as I already had the layout provided so just needed to add the elements to it. Sometimes the layout can be the hardest part to card making. The colours can be the easy part especially with Stampin’ Up! as all their colours coordinate so well together.

I decided to add an envelope to my project and so I covered the back flap with some of the DSP. I really like how my whole project turned out. I added a whisper white insert into the card as the Berry Burst is just a bit dark to write on. I stamped the same flower that’s on the front to the insert as well. You can see that on the photo above.
