Circle Sayings Bundle!

Really enjoyed using the “Circle Sayings Bundle”. This stamp set has not only versatile images, but some great greetings as well. Sadly, this bundle will be “retiring” at the end of this month. This particular card was not only quick but easy to create.

Circle Sayings Bundle

My color palette started with Azure Afternoon, Daffodil Delight and Basic White. A die from the “Stitched With Whimsy” set was used to make the stitched border on the white card stock layer. This great set of dies will also be retiring the end of April. The sun and wave image were stamped with “Memento Black” ink and then punched out with a 2″ Circle Punch. A Daffodil Delight stitched circle was cut with one of the “Stylish Shapes” Dies. These two layers were mounted with “Dimensionals” on a “Decorative Circle” punched layer in Azure Afternoon.

Two small details helped to complete this card. I placed an “Azure Afternoon Sheer Ribbon” below the “Decorative Circle” punched shape and then added a touch of “Wink of Stella” to the sun’s rays and the break on the wave. It is very difficult to capture the shimmer on this card, but it is quite pretty in real life!

Just a Note: My apologies, after composing this post, I was working on a link to the Stampin’ Up! site for this particular product. The inventory for this product bundle has already been depleted! If there are products you are interested in that will be retiring soon, please don’t wait as inventory vanishes quickly!

Last Chance Product SALE Begins!

Just a friendly reminder to everyone that the “Last Chance Product SALE” started April 9th, 2024! Don’t miss out on your opportunity to purchase some of your favorite products at discounted prices up to 60% off!

Last Chance Product SALE!

Many products from the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog and the January-April 2024 Mini Catalog will be retiring! Some products will be gone for good, other products will return in the NEW 2024-2025 Annual Catalog, but the “bundle” prices will disappear. If you have your “eye” on a specific bundle, don’t wait for the “bundled” price to go away, purchase before this discount vanishes!

Also, with the continuing economy and rising costs for everything, you will see a few price increases in the NEW 2024-2025 Annual Catalog. If you are needing card stock, envelopes or other consumable items, you may want to order by the end of April to avoid paying an increased price in the new catalog.

Thoughtful Expressions Again!

For this card, I used the “Thoughtful Expressions” Bundle along with the very beautiful “Poetic Expressions” DSP. The “Poetic Expressons” DSP can be found in the January – April Mini Catalog, p. 61. These prints make such beautiful backgrounds! HERE is my previous post showing another card I created with this great bundle.

Thoughtful Expressions Bundle!

Not sure which images I like best, the hummingbird or the flowers! All of the images are super easy to color, plus the stamp set includes some nice word greetings. On this card, I chose Moody Mauve, Basic White and shades of greens and browns for the hummingbird. I used several shades of “Blends” to color the flowers and the bird.

On my card, I did place the hummingbird body up on “Dimensionals”, but not under the wings. Seems that I can never capture this in my photos, but after coloring the flower centers with a pale green and yellow, I added “Wink of Stella” for a subtle shimmer. I rolled up a “Mini Glue Dot” and attached a “White Baker’s Twine” bow to my card front. For added interest and to complete this simple card, I added three of the “Purple Fine Shimmer Gems” found in the current Mini, p. 23. I absolutely love how beautiful this card with the “Thoughtful Expressions” Bundle turned out, it is beautiful IRL!
