Important Stampin’ Up! Announcement…..

First, on JUNE 1st, SU! will be publishing the Last Chance Stamp Set list AND the Last Chance Accessories list (formally known as the retired list)! What does that mean for you? Well, it means that you will have the entire month of June to purchase those retiring stamp sets that are on your must have list. Because SU! produces all our own stamps – they will not sell out (as they say, we can always make more). A change from previous years is that the retiring accessories list will be released at the beginning of the month as well, however since these accessories are NOT produced by SU! once they sell out, they are gone, gone, gone! While I won’t know until June 1st the full list of retiring items, I can tell you that anything with a current In Color in it will be on that retiring list, so if there is something on your must have list, please place your order ASAP. Remember not only can you order from me, but you can also order online, 24-7 on my website.

Now, on the next creation….So I have to admit that my creations definitely tend toward the feminine side and I have a hard time making a masculine card (that doesn’t involve a tree at least). Luckily for me Stampin’ Up! released a great new stamp set in the current Occasions Mini Catalog, Andy Many Mower. I created this card with my husband in mind whose 3 favorite things (after Aidan and I) are the remote, recliners, and refreshments…

I started with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the Main Image in Basic Black using the And Many Mower Stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. For the colored items I used the Summer Sun and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers. For the Pacific Point I used a Blender Pen with the Pacific Point Reinker so I didn’t need to refill my blender pen so frequently. This works great, just a word to the wise, the blender pen really soaks up the ink so be prepared, I’m still getting the Pacific Point out of my pen (great technique to use with a Blender pen that has about served it’s useful life!) Then I matted the image onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock. I stamped the “relax” from the same stamp set and colored it in as above but punched it out with the Designer Label Punch and mounted that to a 1 3/8” Circle Punch. Then I used a piece of Summer Sun Cardstock as well as Good Morning Sunshine DSP as well as a band of Pacific Point Grosgrain Ribbon. This was then mounted to a card base of Pacific Point (one of this years In Colors which will be retiring at the end of next month L) to finish out the card. I stamped “Happy Father’s Day” on the inside but you could definitely use a different sentiment as needed.

Hope you have a Happy Thursday!
Pin It!
