Retiring Purple Posy & Here's To You

Stampin' Up!'s current Annual Catalogue will end on May 3, 2021. That means it's time for the Last-Chance Product Sale. Some items will be on the carry-over list and be available to order in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue but other items are being retired. There are some discounts on certain products. The best place to view what is still able to be ordered is here on my online store: https://www.stampinup.ca/categories/sales-specials/last-chance-products-sale?dbwsdemoid=2157916
Over the weekend I went through my stash and pulled the retiring items. There are 15 stamps in my collection that will be retiring. Some of them I haven't used in awhile, such as the Buffalo Check background stamp. Perfect chance since they are sitting on my desk to use them at least one more time before they retire! The Here's A Card stamp set has been used on many of my cards and a few scrapbook layouts. Do you like either of these stamp sets? Or the retiring Purple Posy In Color? Make sure to click on the link above to browse through the retiring products and keep in mind some products are while supplies last. Any questions please contact me.

Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop - Here's To You

Hello and welcome to March's Paper Pumpkin blog hop!
March's Paper Pumpkin kit - Here's To You - included a free stencil set. Also included is a sponge so you could sponge ink onto your project, but I decided to use the Shimmery White Embossing Paste with the star stencil to create a sparkling night sky. Tip: Clean up the embossing paste right away - your stencil, the palette knife and anywhere the paste may have gotten onto. It is very hard to clean up once it dries.
To create this first card the mountains/lake/trees are cut from on of the Petal Pink card bases. First use the trimmer to cut down the sides and bottom of the image then cut around the mountains with the Paper Snips. After gluing this image to the card you can place the darker pines over top using the included Mini Stampin Dimensionals. For this card, pieces of Pretty Peacock and Basic White cardstock were used along with pieces from this month's kit.
The second card uses one of the envelope inserts cut down to 4" x 4.25" to cover the sunset printed image on the Petal Pink card bases. The main cloud image is cut from the cloud and flower piece included in the kit. Do you see the cloud strips behind the main image? They are from the die cut coloured strips included in the kit. This card uses a piece of Pretty Peacock and Old Olive cardstock to enhance the kit's contents.

Butterfly Brilliance Scrapbook Layout

Butterfly layout
The Butterfly Brilliance bundle consists of the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set and the Brilliant Wings dies. Please note that the butterflies in the stamp set are one stamp and the butterfly dies in the bottom right of the above image are one die. You may carefully cut the butterfly stamps apart if you'd like (watch the video below and you can see how I cut mine apart) but I do not recommend cutting up the large die.

Each week on Thursdays I will share a video on how to create a project. This video will be available on my YouTube channel and shared on Thursday's blog post with more details about that project. See today's video below or you can watch it on my YouTube channel:
