Wildflower Meadow - Discounted!

REMINDER: June 2nd is the last day to order retiring items! All retiring items are available while supplies last!!
 
I am re-sharing this card I originally posted in 2013. I think it's a very pretty stamp and I just saw that it's discounted. Wildflower Meadow Clear Mount is now only $10.46 (instead of $13.95), Wood Mount is now only $13.46. The coordinating embossing folder (which I did not use on this card) is 1/2 off! So it's only $3.98.
I used my Stampin' Write Markers to color directly on the stamp.  Then I lightly spritzed the stamp with water and stamped the image onto Whisper White card stock.  I used my Sponge Dauber to add some blue (Pool Party) for the sky.

Stamp:  Wildflower Meadow (clear - so needed Clear Block F)
Card Stock:  Gumball Green (retired), Whisper White
Stampin' Write Markers:  Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit (retired)
Classic Stampin' Pad:  Pool Party
Tools:  Stampin' Spritzer, Sponge Daubers

All of these items can be ordered in my Online Store.  And don't forget the envelopes so that you can mail all of the beautiful cards that you make.

Please know that I appreciate each and every order!  Use the current hostess code (7W9AKVMM) and receive a thank you from me.

Happy Memorial Day!

Thank you to the brave men and women in uniform who sacrifice so much for our freedom and our safety. We owe you so much!

I love this Stampin' Up! set, For Your Country. All of the stamps on these cards are from that set. Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Old Olive, and Basic Black. Ink: Old Olive and Basic Black. The background was embossed using the Big Shot and Tiny Triangles Embossing Folder.

Memorial Day Decoration Idea

I just found this awesome digital download on the Stampin' Up! site. I'm going to download it and make a decoration for Memorial Day tomorrow (which I'll also be able to use on 4th of July). It's sized to print out at 8.5 x 11, so you can print it on your own printer. Buy or decorate a cute frame and you're done - if you want to be. You can, of course, embellish to your heart's content. It would look nice reduced and mounted on coordinating card stock before being put in the frame.

You can use it in My Digital Studio and other programs. I've even used MDS downloads in Word. Use it as a background or shrink it to make a focal point on a scrapbook page. There's lots you can do with these downloads even if you don't own MDS. Besides this template, there's a 28 piece stamp brush set included to increase the versatility. But remember, you must buy, download, and save to your computer by May 31! Downloads are available immediately after purchase, so there's still time for you to have this for your holiday cookout tomorrow.

This Set Will Be Missed...

I recently used this stamp on the current TSSC Challenge. This is such a great set. I can't believe it's retiring. The Labels Framelits and Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper (DSP) are also retiring.

You can get all of the supplies used on this card from my online store.

TSSC 363 - From My Heart

Here's my design team sample for this week's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge.  I love the sayings in this set, From the Heart -- especially the one I used on this card. The secret of life is enjoying the passing of time.
Stamps: From My Heart (Retiring)
Cardstock: Whisper White
Designer Series Paper (DSP): Sweet Taffy
Ink: Old Olive, Pacific Point
Big Shot: Labels Framelits (Retiring)

I like when sets have paired messages. I used the message that goes with this stamp on the inside of the card. I'd rather do NOTHING with you than SOMETHING with anyone else. Aren't both messages great thoughts? I think so!
Here's this week's sketch. Use it to inspire you!
You can link your project and see the rest of the design team samples at the Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge site. Hope you'll play along this week!

Check back later in the week for another card made using this sketch.

Butterfly Treats

Happy Mother's Day!
We made these cute little butterfly treats a couple months ago in club, but I'm just getting them posted now. The butterfly is made with the Mixed Bunch stamp set (retiring) and Blossom punch (retiring and already sold out). The butterfly center is a chocolate egg. Antennae are made with two little strips of card stock. Colors: Melon Mambo and Marina Mist.

Let the Blossom punch be a reminder - if you want anything off the retiring list, don't wait to get it. Items are available while supplies last. That being said, it's possible I may be able to locate a Blossom punch, so if you want one, please contact me.

I got the instructions how to make these cute butterflies from Sarah Willis.

Cards Using the Moonlight DSP Stack

Check out this bevy of cards. They all feature the retiring Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack. I love this little pack of paper and now it's half off! Only $3.48!! Contact me if you'd like to order a pack. Or, order online. Current hostess code is 63XX6K36. Starburst Sayings and Starburst Framelits (available also as a bundle) are also retiring, as is From My Heart.


Other sets used, that fortunately aren't being retired: Sea Street, Perfect Pennants, Project Life Remember This, and Something to Say.

Some of you may remember these cards from a Stamp-a-Stack we did last summer. You can get at least four sets of these cards out of the Moonlight DSP Stack with lots of DSP left over.
