April 2022 - Stamping Sunday Blog Hop

Hello Stamping Friends! Today, I’m super-excited to share the April 2022 Stamping Sunday Blog Hop. This hop is hosted by Sara Levin and we share on the second Sunday of every month. Our theme for the month is to feature products from the  “Last Chance” list from the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. 
When I sat down to create my cards for this blog hop, I pulled an assortment of my favorite products that are on the “Last Chance” list: the Sharing Sunshine stamp set, Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, Brilliant Rainbow Dies and the fabulous (host exclusive) Pattern Party Designer Series Paper. This paper is definitely a favorite and will be missed greatly! I also used the Basic Borders Dies to create some layered clouds. These dies are NOT retiring and I would definitely recommend them as they have so many fun options for borders and details.  

Everything on the “Last Chance” list is only available while supplies last, so don’t wait to order! It’s always hard to say goodbye to so many fun products, but it’s also exciting to look forward to all of the awesome new products that will be coming out in the new catalog next month. Here is the link to check out the items currently available on the list: Last Chance Products.

All of the measurements for my project are listed below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this blog post.
***Quick update: As I was getting this ready to post on my blog, I noticed that the Sharing Sunshine stamp set is already sold out. Unfortunately those “Last Chance” items are only while supplies last, so availability can change pretty quickly. I had already created my projects and didn’t have time to re-do them before the hop. I think it would still be easy to recreate the sunshine image on the Layering Circles Dies. You could even draw the face, cheeks and sun rays yourself with some markers and just use a different sentiment. Where there is a will, there is a way, right? ;)

Finally, here is a peek inside the first card. I added a strip of coordinating DSP along with a sentiment from the Sending Sunshine set. I added some playful dots around the sentiment for an extra pop of color. Such a fun thank you card, ready to pop in the mail! 

I hope you enjoyed these projects today! Please continue along on the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop to check out more awesome creative inspiration.
