I have updated my class schedule so that you can see what I have coming up and thought I would share this card which is part of my May Class – Saying Goodbye. All the cards we are using in this class feature something that is going to retire at the end of May. I love the Everything Eleanor stamp set but must admit that I haven’t used it much of late. It is a beautiful stamp set but doesn’t come with matching framelits, so if you want to feature the flowers in any sort of 3d way, there is nothing for it but to fussy cut, which I don’t always have time for and certainly makes the ladies in my classes moan!
Anyway this card also features some of the Designer Series Paper from the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack which is part of the product in the Occasions Catalogue and will be retiring at the end of the month. I cut a rectangle of the Designer Series paper diagonally and attached it to Whisper White card. I stamped the greeting from the Sassy Salutations stamp set, also retiring (and this makes me very sad) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink into the space between the two pieces of Designer Series Paper. The panel is attached to scored and folded Melon Mambo card. I stamped the leaves from the Crazy About You stamp set (while the stamp set is not retiring it will no longer be part of the bundle featured in the catalogue) onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink and cut them out. I attached the leaves onto the left hand side of the card just above the greeting. I stamped the large flower from Everything Eleanor stamp set onto Whisper White card using Melon Mambo ink and cut it out. I painted the flower with Clear Wink of Stella, attached the flower over the leaf stems and added 3 Basic Pearls to the centre.
The panel of Whisper White card inside has the flower from Everything Eleanor stamped onto the bottom left hand corner using Melon Mambo ink. I masked the flower and then stamped the leaves over the top.
Now while I am very sad to see some of my favourite things being retired, I know that when I start playing (I mean working) with product from the next catalogue I won’t stay sad for long.
So if you need the Everything Eleanor stamp set or the Sassy Salutations stamp set or the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack in your life, then don’t delay because they will only be available while stocks last. In fact here is a link to the Retired List in my online store so you can see what is still available.
Bye for now,
