All of the Current Designer Series Paper in the Annual Catalog and the Occasions Catalog with the exception of the Typeset Specialty paper is retiring June 2nd.

My kiddos needed a few last minute gifts yesterday for the last day of school, so I went to the store and purchased a big bag of Hershey's Nuggets to create these fun boxes of chocolate.  I got the boxes HERE.  I cut my strips to 1" x 3" and added a Glue Dot to both ends, wrapped the strip around the nugget and secured it on the bottom.  You could use any of our Designer Series Papers.

First are the ones using the Painted Blooms DSP, this paper is on the Weekly Deals for 25% off making it only $8.21 per package.  I ran the flat boxes through the Texture Boutique Machine with various Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and wrapped the boxes with various ribbons and trims I had.

Painted_blooms_rosePainted_blooms_pacificI also used the Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper to create these:

Retiring List - Painted Petals

Painted_petalsSo sad to see that the Painted Petals stamp set from the Occasions Catalog isn't carrying over. 

The last day to order from the Occasions Catalog will be June 2nd.  This set is available in all three formats, clear mount rubber, photopolymer and wood mount rubber.  

If you love the coordinating Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper, it will also retire on June 2nd but you can get it 25% off as it is part of this weeks Weekly Deals!

Painted_petals_watercolor_ty

My friend Dena made this card and I love how she did it.  She inked each stamp and stamped in full strength, then immediately stamped it again but slightly off to create a colored shadow. 

Painted_petals_watercolor_ty_close

Adding a few pearls really gives this simple card some depth.

At my most recent Technique Geeks Class, we learned how to make a Double Gate Fold Card. These are fun and use a half sheet of 12x12 Card stock.

Sweet_stuff_dblgate_out_turq

We used one of the retiring Window Frames from the Window Frames Collection Framelits (also on the retiring list).  We used the Color Coach (also on the retiring list) to determine the colors we would use for our projects.  Each person chose a color of Designer Series from one of the Designer Series Paper Stacks we have and then we used the Color Coach to determine the other two colors.  It was so much fun!!

We used the retiring stamp set called Sweet Stuff to decorate the inside of the card and the same colors of Stampn' Write Markers to color in the sweet ballerina.

Retiring List - Polka Dot Pieces and Hi, There

Here's a card using the Spritzed Framelits & Thinlits technique.  I included this card in one of my recent Be a Big Shot at Home Classes.

Click to VIEW MY VIDEO. 

Polka_dot_pieces_BB_inked

I started with a piece of Whisper White and the Striped Scallop Thinlit.  I spritzed it with a mixture of 70% Rubbing Alcohol and Blackberry Bliss reinker.

The butterfly is from the retiring set called Polka Dot Pieces cropped with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and I added some rhinestones to the body.  I also added rhinestones to some of the small circles made when I spritzed the die.

The Whisper White layer is backed by a piece of Silver Foil Paper and it is very shiny in real life.

Another Diagonal Cut Pocket Card.  These are so easy and fun to make. 

View my video showing you how to make these cards > VIDEO-Diagonal Cut Pocket Cards.

I used the Crazy About You stamp set for the flower on this card and punched it out with the coordinating Flower Medallion Punch.   If you like the Flower Medallion Punch and it's coordinating stamp set, Petal Potpourri, get it this month as it will retire at the end of the Occasions Catalog.  I know because I have seen the New Catalog!!!!

Crazy_about_you_diag_pocket

Here is the card pulled out of the pocket.  I stamped the flower image in Tuxedo Memento Black and Crumb Cake.  I punched the Black flower out with the Flower Medallion Punch and hand cut the others.  I stacked them with Stampin' Dimensionals and then added a button from the Neutrals Button Collection.  The flower border image along the bottom edge of the card is from the Bordering Blooms set

Crazy_about_you_diag_pocket_out

I stamped the "hello" image from Hi There (retiring set) onto the panel of DSP from the Sweet Dreams Designer Series Paper Pack.  A little strip of card stock cropped with the Dotted Ribbon Scallop Border Punch peeks out from the bottom of the DSP.

Retiring List - What Can I do with Washi Tape?

Hawaii_logo2Through Sunday, May 17th I am offering a 20% rebate on qualifying orders during my While I am Crusin' Special.  Place your orders in my Online Store using this Hostess Code QS4PZEY7...get all the DETAILS HERE.

_________________________________________________________________________
Our current Washi Tape collections are on the retiring list and some of them are 50% off!!! 

I have a bunch of it so I came up with a fun idea to use it up and I want to share it with you.  I covered half sheets of Whisper White card stock with various Washi Tape collections.  (I was in the car shuttling kids when some of these pics were taken)

Washi_cardstock
I die cut one of the medium butterflies from the Butterflies Thinlits.  I placed the negative space on the back of the covered card stock and traced as many butterflies as I could on it. I cut them out with my Paper Snips.

Drawn_butterfliees
I die cut coordinating colors of butterflies (Basic Black for the Sweet Sadie Washi Tape Collection) and glued them on.

Washi_butterflies

Here is my finished card, I added a piece of the Crisp Cantaloupe polka dot pattern from the 2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack, a stamped image from Hi, There stamp set, a strip of Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and some 2013-2015 In Color Sequins.
