Hello stamping friends!!

Just a reminder that it is time to get those "must have" Stampin' Up! products that will be discontinued on May 31, before they are all gone.  Click here to start shopping now for the products that will be gone forever.  

I have so many favorites, but I wanted to show you a couple of cards I made this last week using product that will be discontinued.  

I love this set, using the Birthday Delivery Stamp Set, the matching Birthday Friends Framelits, and Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper.  I purchased the entire suite for my kid's and grandchildren's scrapbooking albums -- plus it makes such cute cards!!  A must-have purchase before it retires!!

I made this card for my daughters' birthdays, using the Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp Set, coordinating Pocket Framelit Dies, and the Petal Garden and Tuti-Frutti Designer Series Paper Packs.  The Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp Set and coordinating Framelit Dies will not be retiring, but will no longer be sold as a "bundle," with a 10% discount (you will pay full price for both).  The sentiment is from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set" and carried over to the new catalog.  (The buttons are retired SU product colored with the new Light Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends to match the Sweet Sugerplum Cardstock retiring.)

Close-up of the tiny envelope I made to fit the pocket, using the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack (retiring).

Close-up of the back of the envelope and gift money wrapped in belly band.

Inside of the card (had to cover up my hand-written note), using the retiring Great Big Greetings Stamp Set and flower from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set.
Don't wait to purchase product on the retired list -- once it is sold out, it is gone!!!

Until next time,

"When the just cry out, the Lord hears them, and from all their distress He rescues them."
-- Psalm 34:18

Happy Easter my stamping friends!!!  Yes it has been a while since I have posted, but I'm still stamping and creating.  Today I wanted to show you a few cards I created using the awesome Brusho Crystal Color and the new Hold on to Hope and You're Inspiring stamp sets.  I so love the Brusho because you never know what you are going to get when designing your card.  I did 20 First Communion cards using the Brusho for my background, and they all turned out a little different (depending on where I sprinkled it or how much I sprinkled).  I hope you enjoy these as much as I did making them.

Along with the Brusho Crystal Color for the background, I used the new Waterfront Stamp Set (embossed with Black Embossing Powder) for this card.

This was my Easter card to my Pastor, using the new Hold on to Hope Stamp Set, Matching Framelits, and Gold Embossing Powder.

Easter card for elderly members at my church using Stampin' Up!'s Note Cards & Envelopes, the new You're Inspiring Stamp Set, and the Bow Builder Punch for the sentiment.  (Inside sentiment is from the Hold on to Hope Stamp Set.)

Until next time,
