Make & Takes for "Retirement" Open House

Here are two of the Make & Takes we will be making this weekend at my "Retirement" Open House. These stamp sets are "retiring" on June 30th, so be sure to place your order right away. You can order directly on my Stampin' Up! website,
The first card uses Bordering Blue cardstock and ink. I used the Tulipe Bigz Die to make a stencil, and sponged Bordering Blue ink onto the front of the card. The Bella Bleu Designer Series paper is layered onto a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock, and the edges are sponged with Bordering Blue ink. The "happiness" word is part of the Warm Words stamp set (#115108, $21.95). This is a set of 8 stamps and is "retiring" on June 30th. Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon finishes it off for an elegant look.
The second card uses Pink Passion, Yoyo Yellow, and Only Orange cardstock and ink. The stamp set is called Enjoy Every Moment (#113622, $31.95). This stamp set has 11 stamps and is very versatile. It is great for greeting cards and scrapbook pages. Tempting Turquoise 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon and a Flower Designer Brad finish off this fun and funky card.

Last Chance Lists!

June is an exciting month in the Stampin' Up! year -- the Last Chance Lists are posted! If you have stamp sets on your wish list that are "retiring," now is the time to order them before they are gone forever. This week, I will be posting photos of some of the projects I have made with stamp sets that are on the Last Chance List. Check back tomorrow for the first of these "retiring" stamp set projects.
