When the Retiring Product List is released, some are panicked, some are sad, some are overjoyed and some take action. I look at the list as a source of highlighting the MUST HAVE products before they are gone for good! I love focusing on my favorite items on the list and showcasing them one last time. Even though I may be sad a few items are leaving, I also know, Stampin’ Up! has NEW goodies coming. Who is with me on this! In the mean time, from now until May 31st, you can order from the Retiring Products 2017 List while supplies last. Several items were gone quickly which I knew was bound to happen. However, there are still MANY items left for you to purchase and take of advantage of the items being on SALE! WHAT! Up to 50% off on selected items! WOOHOO!
My card today features 5 retiring products. The stamp set, Crazy About You, is a favorite with it’s coordinating Hello You Thinlits. The flowers in the set work with our punches. The Flower Medallion Punch was used to punch the larger flower. Punches are so easy when it comes to adding an embellishment! Although the Bow Builder Punch is NOT retiring, I added it just for fun!
Do you recognize the Pop Of Pink Designer Series Paper? I used sponge daubers to shade the white on the paper on the Soft Sky and Flirty Flamingo cards. For the Melon Mambo card, featured in the video, I used the sponge brayer! Both work! You can easily create your own Designer Series Paper!
How did I make the flower? Here’s a quick video!! Yes, a video! I did create the flower using Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo. However, after filming, I had ink on the saying and decided I liked the Melon Mambo with the black ink stripes better on the card! Now I just have to place the original flower medallion I created in the video on another card! So don’t think you are going crazy!
colors on flower are Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo
colors on flower are Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay
colors on the flower are Melon Mambo and Archival Black
