Stamping With Friends Blog Hop- Retiring Annual/Mini Catalog Items- April 2023


Thanks for joining us on our Blog Hop today! We are a group of Stampin' Up!® demonstrators from around the world that are brining you inspiration and ideas today! We are showcasing products we love that are on the Last Chance list until the end of April 2023 only! After that they are gone for good. So sad but plenty of new pretty things are coming in May!

I am showcasing the Hues of Happiness suite from the annual catalog for my project today. This is one of my favorites and so sad to see it leaving! It is a well loved and used stamp set and dies from my stash.  

My card base is Thick Basic White and measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and then scored at 4 1/4". My Mango Melody layer(also retiring color) is cut at 4" x 5 1/4". The DSP layer is cut at 2 1/2" x 5 1/4".  I then used scraps of Basic White to stamp my flowers, leaves and sentiment.  My flowers are colored with all Stampin' Blends that are retiring which is Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay and Polished Pink.  My leaves are done in Granny Apple Green Blends which are staying. I then took and colored my black and white ribbon using the polished pink blends as well. I finished off with some Wink of Stella and Glossy Dots for embellishment.

For my inside, I stamped my sentiment and flower and added a small strip of the DSP at the bottom. This is done on a layer of 4" x 5 1/4" Basic white, but you could stamp directly. 

I hope you have enjoyed my project today. I hope you will hop along and make your wish list of items you must have before the leave and contact your demonstrator to order. Below is the complete Hop list for your pleasure.
