You're A Star
I hope you enjoyed yesterday's blog hop! I was able to get a wee bit of stamping in yesterday afternoon and earlier today so I am one happy camper! Or should I say, happy stamper? Trying to use new color combinations on my stamping projects when I need to 'spice' things up a bit, this card falls in that category. I challenged myself to use Basic Gray, Crisp Cantaloupe, Smoky Slate and Old Olive. Colors I typically wouldn't have put together, but they work so well together don't you think?
I love it when we have punches that coordinate with our images. It makes life so much easier! In this case the small flower and star punches from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack help to make the focal image 3D. Two stamp sets were used, Pictogram Punches and World of Dreams. Both of which I hope continue on in the new catalog!
Which brings me to share the news that TOMORROW, April 21st Stampin' Up will announce the retiring list! It's always a happy and sad day for me. Sad that I will have to say goodbye to many of my favorites, but happy knowing that new ones will be coming soon! Many items on the list will sell out, and sell out quickly, so if there are certain items you'd like I urge you to purchase them sooner than later! Happy Stamping!
