Hello there! I have a card to share with you made with Hearts A Flutter, another retiring set. I started with a Silver Foil Sheet base and added a layer of Silver Glimmer Paper, which unfortunately is gone, but we'll have more in the brand new catalog that is coming...more on that in a bit! I embossed the pennants with White Embossing Powder onto Blushing Bride and Pumpkin Pie Cardstock, and the heart onto Strawberry Slush Cardstock. I used the coordinating Framelits along with the Big Shot to cut them out.
I layered the pennants with Pumpkin Pie and Blushing Bride scalloped pennants onto Whisper White Cardstock. I stamped and cut out 2 hearts in Pumpkin Pie ink. I attached the bottom one to the scalloped heart, scored the other and attached it on top of the other with Glue Dots. The sentiment is from Sweet Essentials and stamped in Strawberry Slush. I used the Paper-piercing Mat & Tool to poke holes in the pieces and string them with White Baker's Twine. I added a bow and attached it with a Glue Dot and added an In Color Boutique Detail, and Subtles Button to each of the pennants.
The retiring products used are:
Hearts A Flutter & Sweet Essentials stamp sets
Silver Glimmer Paper
In Color Boutique Details
And now for something really fun! Last night, Stampin' Up! rented out 40 theatres across the US and Canada for the Catalog Premiere. This was a first for all of us, and it was an exciting event. There were lots of Prize Patrols as usual, and everyone left with a brand new catalog to drool over and a brand new stamp set as well!
They really put a lot of work into making this catalog very user-friendly. They have lots of projects that are separated into categories for new, casual or avid stampers. They showcase projects that can be made simply and they show how you can step up the projects if that's more your style. And they have all the products pictured next to the projects so you can see at a glance what you'll need to make the projects. There's plenty of bundles throughout the catalog also which save you money:) So many fun, new & exciting products! I can't wait to share it with you on Thursday at Card Night:) I now need to get back to work and get everything ready to go! Thanks so much for stopping by:)
