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.

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.

My Hawaii Trip Swap

We always swap when we go on the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trips and this year was no different.  I had to make 25 and then I received 25 different cards in return.

Here is mine.  It is a Center Cut Easel Card, I posted a VIDEO for you, VIEW IT HERE.

I used the Celebrate Today Bundle, this bundle includes the Celebrate Today Photopolymer stamp set along with the Balloon Framelits and you get a 15% discount when you order bundles!!

  Celebrate Today Photopolymer Bundle [138869]

Celebrate_today hawaii_group
I chose some bright fun colors to pop on the Basic Black.  The balloon basket was stamped in Bermuda Bay and punched out with the Note Tag Punch.  The die cut balloon was added and then the birthday banner.

I ran the Basic Black through the Big Shot Machine with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and added some small stars cropped from scraps with the Confetti Stars Border Punch.

Celebrate_today hawaii_flat

These cards fold flat for mailing but pack a WOW for the recipient.

Retiring List - Love is Kindness

The Love and Kindness single stamp is in the Occasions Catalog on page 32.  It will be retiring June 2nd so add it to an order soon. :-)

Love_kindness_swap

I cut the image and greeting apart so I could use them separately if desired and did so on this card.

I colored the image with Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi and Smoky Slate.  Die cut it with one of our Oval Collection Framelits and then added it to a piece of Basic Black cut with the Windows Collection Framelits.I colored the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper offered during Sale-a-bration.  If you didn't have the chance to get some during Sale-a-bration, don't panic, there is a set in the New Catalog with different patterns.

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.

The flower was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and cropped with the Flower Medallion Punch.  I stamped the little flower middle in Hello Honey and then covered it with our Dazzling Details Glitter Adhesive, so sparkly.  My greeting is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and is from the Fabulous Four stamp set.

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.

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!!!!

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

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.
