Here is another stamp set that I hope I don’t find on Stampin’ Up!s retired list in the morning, Field Flowers! I love the images and sentiments in this one. My favorite sets all have great images and fabulous sentiments. I love sets that come with sentiments and inspirational sayings. One of the mistakes I made when I first started stamping, was that I purchased sets that were all images. I created a lot of cards with no sentiments! I can’t imagine a card without a sentiment now. I just love tucking a sentiment onto a card design somewhere!
For this card:
Stamp Set: Field Flowers (#122762)
Inks and Papers: Regal Rose, Gumball Green, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso and Print Poetry Designer Series Paper (#129312)
Accessories: Pearls, Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon (#120999), 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch (#127811)
Dimensions for cutting: Card Base in Regal Rose is 4-1/4 x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″, Gumball Green mat is cut 2-5/8 x 3-7/8″, Very Vanilla mat cut at 2-1/2 x 3-3/4″, Print Poetry DSP is cut 2-1/2 x 4-1/4″.
Tips: I stamped an image of the flower and cut it out with my paper snips. It is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals to add dimension to the card, as is the sentiment. I also sponged the edge of the scallop circle punch with the sentiment in Regal Rose ink just to make it stand out from the layers below. Those 3 little pearls on the sentiment…they are covering a smudge of heavy sponging! There are no mistakes in stamping!
Here is the Paper Craft Crew Sketch that I started with!
Retired List Information:
April 24th is the day of the big announcement! Only a few more hours to wait!
I will send out another post later in the day with the latest information from Stampin’ Up! and the coveted retired list. I’m hoping that not too many of my favorite stamp sets and papers are retiring! Although, out with old just makes room for the new!
I will be sending an email to my mailing list with the information as well! You will also get a printable Color Inventory checklist to keep track of the papers, inks, refills and markers that you have! Make sure you are signed up for my mailing list and that you have confirmed your subscription to receive that information!
