Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have some fun plans in store. I’m working all day today, which is fine since it’s supposed to rain again. I do have off tomorrow though YAY!!!
I was busy yesterday getting everything ready to send out the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalogs to my customers and lost track of time. I was focused on getting them to the post office and shipped out. With that being said, I have a quick card for you today using retiring items. Here’s my card for today.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper. Not only both of these items will be retiring, but 2 of the colors I used, Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider, will be retiring too.
I started by adhering a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a Cinnamon Cider card base.
I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the new Stylish Shapes Dies (available May 3rd). I stamped the flowerpot image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the cactus image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the flowerpot. I stamped the flower image from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the cactus image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat on an angel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the sentiment and a Bumblebee Trinket to the artwork.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cactus Cuties stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowerpot, cactus and flower images from the Cactus Cuties stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base.
To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cactus, flower and flowerpot images from the Cactus Cuties stamp set them same as I did for the card on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the envelope flap.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
