Retiring Upsy Daisy!

Upsy Daisy is one of the retiring Stampin' Up!™ sets no longer available after May 31. I love silhouette stamps! They are great for embossing or emboss resist technique. This card was a CASE of one in the current catalog. When you've lost your mojo you copy right? I used Cherry Cobbler embossing powder for the main image and the sentiment. The ticket corner punch used on the white panel is also retiring. 

Of course at my house retiring does not  mean gone. I use my retired stamp sets and usually keep them just in case... You never know when you may need a certain stamp...or punch...or...

Retiring Accessories

Click HERE for the pdf. file of retiring Stampin' Up! accessories. Just a few things to note:

1. Craft ink  and refills are retiring (except for black and white) and will not be available in the new catalog.
2. The stamp pads are being reconfigured and should result in a cleaner image.
3. The new Classic refills will work in the old ink pads. However, a few colors of old ink refills will not work in the new "firm foam pads".
4. The Adorning Accents (jewelery) and Definitely Decorative (wall art) lines are all retiring.
5. Textured card stock is retiring.
6. 12 x 12 smooth paper will be available in assorted color packs and a limited number of single color packs.

Clear as mud??? Any questions just call or email me!

Pool Party Doily Card

I am not sure about this card but decided to post it anyway. My creative juices have just not been a-flowing lately! Most of my creations have been CASE'd.  I think I have been working too many hours, allergies are fogging my brain, spring fever, too little sleep...Excuses I have, creativity nada! 

The card base is Calypso Coral (love this new In-Color!) with a touch of Pool Party. I used the Decorative Doily die and cut a piece of Designer Series Paper. The edging was made with the Adorning Accents embossing folder and matching framelit. Hoping to make something new and I am working on a scrapbook for my soon to be born great nephew! 


Zoey, she's shy and hard to photograph!

Vintage Peach Parfait

 Oh my! Where does the time go???? I can't believe it has been more than a week since I posted or blurfed! But I did make a card or two! 
  The paper and stamp are from Stampin' Up!  (of course!) Sale-A-Bration that I received for FREE! The tag is a piece of chipboard that I covered with Whisper White using a glue stick.  The layered pieces were cut with the Labels Framelits.

Saturday was opening day at Worlds of Fun! However, it was pretty rainy so we didn't ride much or stay long.That's the beauty of a season pass. I did get to ride my favorite roller coaster, The Mamba, the first hill is just the best! Almost as much fun as stamping!

Calyso Coral Mixed Bunch Card

I like "fussy" cutting most of the time, however, these matching stamps and punches are much quicker! The flower image is from the Stampin' Up!™ set called Mixed Bunch and it fits perfectly in the Blossom punch. The flower is stamped in Calypso Coral with some Dazzling Details added and a couple of rhinestones.

Embossed Typewriter

 I am going to be well stocked with masculine cards! And I am actually having fun making them! This time I embossed that cute little typewriter with black embossing powder. That strip of silver is Silver Waffle paper (still available in the Stampin' Up! ™ catalog).  

  For the last two cards I embossed the typewriter with Pewter Embossing Powder.  It looks better on the Basic Black than on the First Edition newsprint paper but I was experimenting.  

 Enough with the typewriter, time to get out the flower stamps...
