Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Cards

If you haven't checked out Stampin' Up!'s  retirement list yet, just click on the image on my side bar to print it out.   There are more stamps than usual retiring this year because of the change to the catalog schedule and size of all catalogs.  So if you have a favorite that you have not ordered yet and it is on the retirement list, be sure to order it by May 31st!  Also remember that Stampin' Up!'s 2012 Occasions Mini catalog expires on April 30th so please order any favorites that you want before that date.

Below are some cards I have done in my past classes, using stamps that will be leaving the current Stampin' Up! catalogs:

Beyond The Garden Atampin' Up! Scallop Oval die card, Jeannine Tarrio Demonstrator

One of my all time favorite greeting stamps, Sincere Salutations. I purchased this stamp, the first year I became a demonstrator and it is still one of my go to stamps for classes. The greeetings are the same size, so customers can swap out the greeting on any card on which I use this stamp set.

Under The Stars, is my go to stamp for camping scrapbook pages and Bar-B-Q invitations.  I love the mosquito from that set which I used on the frog card below:

Cards for All Occasions from Stampin’ Up’s 2012 Occasions Mini

March is going by fast, I knew it would be a busy month and I am trying to play catch up with my blog posts.  Below are some of the cards from this month's card buffet.  All cards used stamp sets from Stampin' Up!'s  2012 Occasions Mini catalog. The first card uses Outlined Occasions from the Sale-a-bration catalog and Beautiful Wings embosslit from Stampin' Up!. I, also, used the embedded embossing technique.

Next is an Easter card I created with the Hostess set Up in the Air:

And I love the Bordering on Romance stamp set, as it is a great set all by itself, and because it coordinates with the Adorning Accents Edgelits and Adorning Accents Textured Embossing Folders as well. The watercolor marker technique was used to color this card.

Heaven Blessed by Stampin’ Up!

I just love Stampin' Up!'s Heaven Blessed stamp set from the 2012 Occasions Mini.  You can do so much with this stamp set. On the card below I challenged myself to use ALL the stamps in this set on one card.  I decided to use a fancy fold called a quarterfold for the card.  It worked perfectly!  I created this card for one of the projects for my stamp clubs last month.  They love it.  The front of the card looks liked a folded cardboard box top.

Stamps:    Heaven Blessed - Clear-Mount Stamp

Heaven Blessed – Clear-Mount Stamp #125864
     Price: $16.95

Card stock: Pirouette Pink, Shimmery White, Brights Designer Paper Stack

Ink:  Black Stazon, color with Markers.  I did use retired Blush Blossom stamp pad and an aqua painter for the skin tones.

Directions–

I found my card and this is what I had done:

I cut two pieces of Pretty in Pink card stock 1) 4 1/8 x 11 and scored on the 11" side at 2 3/4" from each end and 2) 5 3/8" x 8 1/2" and scored on the 8 1/2" side at 2 1/8" from each end.

Next I laid the 5 3/8 x 8 1/2 piece over the 4 1/8 x 11 piece and glued together.

I cut 4 pieces of Designer Series Paper at 1 7/8" x 2 1/2"

I cut 4 pieces of Shimmery White at 1 7/8" x 2 1/2" – Then stamped my images and colored.

Next I laid out my 4 images in the order I wanted them to appear on my card front.

I folded the top piece down and the bottom up, then placed the upper right hand image on the top corner and the bottom left image in the bottom left corner. Next glued the DSP in the opposite corners.
Then I folded in the two sides and glued the remaining images in the upper left corner and bottom right corner. Glue the remining DSP in the opposite corners.

Open up card, then refold just like you would a cardboard box top so all the images show on the front.  Hope this helps.
