Here is one of the cards we made at my Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love Bundle Class last week. Everyone had fun learning how to use the new Stampin' Up! Die Brush set, Precision Plate and the beautiful Bloomin' Love Bundle.
If you look close you can see the subtle sponging I used on the card edges. Look how the die brush removed every bit of the cut outs. This would make a great Anniversary card, Birthday card, or Valentine's Day card.
Can you believe all the Stampin' Up! product that I used on these is retiring except for cardstock and ink! All the accessories (except the the Basic Jewels Pearls & Rinestones) and the stamps are on the retiring lists?
Retiring products used on the Celebrate card: Tag It stamp set, Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper, and 3/8" Coastal Cabana Ruffled Stretch Trim.
Retiring on the Congratulations card is the Just Married stamp set.
Retiring products used on the Happy Birthday card: Perfectly Penned stamp set, Very Vintage wheel (my favorite wheel), Subtles Core'dinations cardstock, and Pool Party Seam Binding.
Don't you just love Stampin' Up!'s Love You to the Moon (#133143 for clear mount, #133140 for wood mount) stamp set? It can be used for any occasion such as Valentine's Day, Anniversary, Miss You, Thinking of You, well you get it, almost any occasion. Today's card could be used for the man in your life or a child (is their a connection here???). I used Crumb Cake, Night of Naavy, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White card stock. I used Stampin' Write markers to color the stamp, huff and stamp on the white card layer.
Did you notice the Sale-a-bration Decorative Dots (#133520) embossing folder on the Crumb Cake front? You can get the embossing folder free during Sale-a-bration with a $50.00 net product order!
Hope you liked it. Comments are always welcomed.
Hope you are having a great day. It is still snowing in Maine. We may have a brief break tonight, then more snow on Saturday, and possibly another snow storm on Tuesday. Yikes! I prefer snow to freezing rain or sleet, so in that respect the weather is not bad. I am just tired of the cold weather and am ready for spring.
Below is my Anniversary card to my DH using Stampin' Up!'s Love You to the Moon stamp set. It could also be a Valentine's Day or Birthday card.

Just a quick post showing the rest of the pages of my Mini Album for Kelley Jean Gettelfinger's mini album swap at Stampin' Up! 's 2013 Convention. My theme for making this album was "it is all in the details" which in this case is pearls and sponging all through the album.
