Farewell, Flowers, Handmade Cards

Wild Flowers Retirement

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a feminine retirement card made using the Wild about Flowers stamp set (pg 74) from the annual catalogue.

Wild about Flowers #Stampin' Up!

This is a very simple card using only a couple of gorgeous colours; Wild Wasabi, Rose Red and Whisper White.

It is pretty much a single layer card with a small bow as the embellishment.

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card and make a coordinating envelope!

I would very much appreciate it if you could leave a comment below.

Farewell, Masculine

Daydream Medallions

Dear Crafters,

Welcome to another card made with retiring products!

Today I use the Daydream Medallions Stamp Set.

I used a Tempting Turquoise card base and  stamped each of the images in Night of Navy, Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise inks. I stamped the images using my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig, the best tool ever for getting the images placed exactly where you want them to be!

Daydream Medallions

The bottom section is just strips of cardstock layered and with a strip of Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.

The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink and cut with the Word Window punch and added with dimensionals.

I love how this stamp set is versatile in making masculine and the most stunning feminine cards, even Christmas Wreath cards!

Retirement

Dear Crafters,

Well, my in-laws arrived yesterday (and no it’s not a bad thing, lol, I get along very well with them. She is also a SU demo!). But I had to wait until now to share this little creation with you, as my Mother-in-law has retired after many, many years being a Business Manager in a school in her country Victorian town. I needed something different and saw something similar but there were no instructions, so it took ages to cut and score and put together!!!!

Anyway, here it is!

Teapot     Teapot

Can you tell it is a teapot? I sure hope so. My Mother-in-law loves her cups of tea, so what better type of card to make for her.

Teapot

I am not entirely happy with the spout, as it was a bit tricky!

Teapot     Teapot

I have used Primrose Petals (retired) card stock and stamped Everything Eleanor with Soft Suede ink.

I used the Ovals Framelits to create the handle!

Then for the big reveal, when you open it up, you see this!

Teapot

The Whisper White card is embossed the new Spring Flowers TIEF which will be available during Sale-a-bration, starting 6th January 2015. I have left one side blank, as that is where I will attach the written message (that you don’t really need to see).

I used the Spiral Flower Original die in Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple (r) card stock. The leaves are die cut using the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die with Garden Green card stock.

Teapot

What do you think of this interesting creation? Something different, but I certainly wouldn’t be making loads of these, just for very special occasions and I think Retirement is certainly one of those!

Have a wonderful Christmas day tomorrow and a safe and healthy 2015!

 

Don’t forget that Sale-a-bration starts on 6 January 2015. If you would like to see the catalogue before then, I can happily mail it to you!
