Today I bring you another AWHT blog hop with some of the awesome ladies in the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team. Today our focus is on our Favourite Retiring Product!
You have come to my blog from the lovely, Jenny Van Dijk.
Now let’s get started!
For my project, I have used my all time favourite stamp set, Stippled Blossoms Stamp Set and the I Love Lace Background Stamp.
I was so upset when I saw that Stippled Blossoms was retiring as it was the very first Stampin’ Up stamp set that I purchased. I cannot tell you just how much I love it and I am certainly going to miss creating with it (sniff, sob). It was so popular that it also sold out within days of it retiring, so unfortunately it can no longer be purchased.
I have used Crisp Cantaloupe as my card base. I stamped the I Love Lace background stamp with Versamark Ink onto Crisp Cantaloupe card stock and applied gold embossing powder being heat setting it. How gorgeous does it look? Check out that shine!
Next I Inked up the solid Stippled Blossom image with Crisp Cantaloupe ink onto the coordinating card stock, using the Masking Technique. Then I applied Versamark ink to the second image and using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, stamped it on top, before applying more gold embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool. This is the first time I have ever embossed this image, but it gives a real special effect and I wish I had thought of it sooner! I fussy cut the flowers with my paper snips.
The leaves are stamped with Old Olive and Baked Brown Sugar inks onto Whisper White card stock and fussy cut.
I added the Baked Brown Sugar stretch ruffled ribbon around the edge before gluing it to the card base.
The images are added with dimensionals as is the sentiment. This was punched out with the Word Window punch.
I think this is the perfect card for this occasion.
