Hi stampers! Today I wanted to share a card with using a few products that will soon be retiring. This card was one of the projects we made at my team meeting this past Wednesday. Everyone loved the delicate detail on the frame and soft florals. This card also features two of the retiring In Colors: Powder Pink and Berry Burst, which I will miss dearly.
I used the sketch over at the Global Design Project as the layout for my card. If you haven’t stopped by their blog, check it out and play along. There is so much amazing creative inspiration there!
The Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper is one of my favorites! I love that one side of the paper is Whisper White and the other is Very Vanilla which makes it so versatile for a lot of projects. This particular pattern fits beautifully with the floral pattern in the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper. I layered them together with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I combined the floral image from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and the sentiment from the Southern Serenade stamp set.
To dress up the floral image, I layered two punched leaves around the flower. The colored vellum is actually a new item coming out in the new Stampin’ Up!® catalog on June 4th. I also took a piece of the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon (about 4-1/2”), folded it in half and stuck it behind the flower on either side for a little more texture. Speaking of texture, the Powder Pink Cardstock is embossed with the Detailed Leaves Embossing Folder.
Here are the products that will be retiring on June 3rd:
- Southern Serenade Stamp Set (sentiment)
- Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Designer Series Paper
- Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper
- Powder Pink Cardstock
- Berry Burst Classic Ink Pad
One other item to note, the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and Beautiful Layers dies will NOT be retiring, however until June 3rd you can purchase the bundle at a 10% discount. You can order HERE.
Here is a close up of the stamped flower. I added some sparkle by mixing a few drops of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint with 70% rubbing alcohol in a Stampin’ Spritzer. It really adds a beautiful detail.
- Whisper White Thick Cardstock - 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, scored at 4-1/4”
- Powder Pink Cardstock - 4-1/8” x 5-3/8”
- Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper - 3-1/2” x just a little shy of 5”
