I will miss this!

Today I made a greeting card from a Retiring stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Love & Affection.  I forgot how much I love this set!  I’ll be sorry to see it go!

I used some of the Designer Series Paper called Affectionately Yours that I have HOARDED!  Yes, I can admit it, I hoard paper!  Sigh……

This isn’t just any Designer paper, oh no!  It has Copper embossed in it!  Yes!  It’s true!  Now do you see why I hoarded it?  This card today is made up by me……I don’t do this very often.  I have been wanting to use the Framelit from the Fiesta Time stamp set!  And that’s how my card started!  Ha!  Funny how that worked!  I cut out two of the strips that are the half circles that are attached together to make a banner, I cut out one from Watermelon Wonder (retiring) and Mint Macaron (also retiring).  This is where I started, I thought these colors looked good with Night of Navy, so that is what the center cardstock will be, since those will be resting on that cardstock.

Pretty together, right?  The colors I used are listed below with a link to my Online Store.  The Hostess Code for this month is:  69EGW4G2   If you purchase from me, I will send you a VERY pretty handmade card!

Here are the measurements of my card if you want to try it!

Tip Top Taupe  5 1/2″ X 7 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″  landscape
Night of Navy (inside) 4″ x 5 1/4″,  (front) 3″ x 5 1/4″
Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) 2 – 3/4″X 5″
Whisper White Inside:  3″ x 5 1/8″, scraps for sentiment

Here is the card in all it’s Beauty!

I used the Petite Petals punch (retiring) to make a focal flower on the front in Copper Foil.  And cut out the sentiment using the Decorative Label punch (also retiring), I cut out another two of the Decorative Label from the Copper Foil to give a border around the sentiment.  You cut each piece in half and then layer them on the back!

I sponged VersaMark on the edges of the Fiesta Time Framelits to give a little Copper edging to it!  Also along the edge of the Night of Navy I stamped in VersaMark the flowers from the Stamp set and embossed with Copper!  Added some pearls to each half circle on top, and to the small flowers on the inside flap.

Here is a picture of the inside!

I love how elegant this card is!!  So, STOP hoarding your DSP and use it!  Before you know it you’ll be getting new DSP and will forget all about the ones you’ve been hanging onto for a special day!  The day is NOW!

The side of the inside is peeking out on the front,

I am proud of myself!  It’s a little scary to just go with an idea and not know how it will turn out!  Sometimes it doesn’t, but that’s where you learn!  Remember, it’s just paper!  I tell myself that when I am really scared!  heehee  Are you scared when you try something without any idea on where it is headed?   You might just surprise yourself (like I did!) when you give it a try!

I hope you enjoyed your visit here today!  I would love to hear from you, I will be having another Blog Candy drawing soon, I have to figure out what to give away!  What would you rather…….stamp sets, ribbon, accessories, paper?  I want to give out what YOU want!!  Let me know!

Floating-Re-Inkers

Thank you for visiting me!  I know you just came from Pam Staples  blog, Isn’t it great!!

Each month NC Demos is going to be hosting a Blog Hop using current Stampin’ Up! product the last day of each month at 8:00 p.m.!  So, get ready to see a lot of great cards/projects!

Before the end of the month I will be doing  a live video on Periscope (making the card you’ll see here on our blog hop!) where you can ask me quesions AS I’m doing my card!  You must download the app to be notified and you will have to follow me to see when I am on!

Periscope doesn’t keep the videos long, but I have it to where it automatically saves it for a few days on Katch.me

Mine is called Floating Re-Inkers, I stamped my image (Rose Wonder, Big Rose with leaves) on Shimmer White Paper using Versamark and then white Embossing Powder.

I then spritzed my Shimmer White cardstock (this holds up better with the water than our white cardstock.  Plus it gives a Great Sparkly look!!  After spritzing with water, I dropped my colors of re-inkers that I wanted to use:  Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, for the flower, and Mint Macaron and Cucumber Crush for the leaves.

I cut out the flower, and then the leaves seperate, so I could place the leaves closer into the flower, since I wanted my flower to be in the middle of my card!

I popped up the flower after putting some of that GORGEOUS Gold thread behind it (you should be able to see it peaking behind.  I also wrapped the Gold Thread around the two side pieces (Brights DSP), as I said……I LOVE that Gold Thread!!)

Since I used the Brights Collection for the Flower, I used the sequins to highlight the gold threading on the side! I put a teeny tiny pearl in each sequin, and stamped the saying from Something To Say stamp set!

Hope you like it!!

Come back to our Blog Hop next month! Now you will go to Francis Wagner blog, Enjoy!!
