Hope you are well and have had a lovely weekend. We have a treat for you tonight .. a few of the girls from the ESAD group have got together to highlight some of the retiring products for you so sit back and click through the blog hop and enjoy what the girls have made.
Today I have used a few of my favourites that are retiring and have made this little card set for you …
This little box is made using the Envelope Punch Board with a belly band made with Park Lane DSP and the images on top are from the lovely set Kind and Cozy. Now dont stress the Envelope Punch Board is not retiring – love that thing!
The Belly Band slips off and the box contains four sweet cards …
I had lots of fun making these cards and got a little sentimental knowing that these sets only have a few weeks left.
First set I wanted to highlight is Pleasant Poppies …
This card uses these retiring products – Pleasant Poppies, Itty Bitty Banners, Itty Bitty Framelits, Park Lane DSP. I enjoyed Watercolouring these poppies for you.
With the start of a new catalogue there are always new Hostess Sets so I always know that the current Hostess Sets will retire and the Bloom with Hope Set was one of my must haves …
This card was cased by one done by my dear friend Debbie Blake. She’d set a watercolouring challenge while I was away at Convention and I loved it so much I just had to make one when I got home. Retiring Set – Bloom with Hope.
Now if you’ve followed my blog for a while you’ll know I love two-step stamping and I’m going to be sad to see the gorgeous Stippled Blossoms go ….
I love these roses! This image just pops as soon as you do the second stamp! Something else I’m going to miss immensely is the 2013-2015 In Colours and especially Coastal Cabana so I had to give it one last hurrah – who knows I might even sneak in another before it’s gone for good. Retiring Products – Stippled Blossoms, For You, Coastal Cabana.
Now here’s something a little different with Stippled Blossoms …
I saw this card online a while ago and thought oh yes I have to do that. I love the simplicity of this card and how even though it’s a 2-step stamp set you can still do elegant with just the top stamps. This card is super quick and super easy and really could be for any occasion at all. Retiring Products – Stippled Blossoms, Bloom with Hope Hostess set, Naturals White Cardstock.
I do hope you’ve like today’s project and the cards and has given you some ideas for some of the sets you’ve got or were thinking of getting from the retiring list. Now remember some items are up to 50% off so dont leave it too long or you might miss out.
