Talkin' Retirement List

Hey! Here's my card for today's post--

Everything I used on my card is on the retiring list (except the Early Espresso card stock). The stamp set Animal Talk is one of my favorites and fairly new to the Stampin' Up! catalog so, I was surprised to see it on the Retirement!

See you next week!
Happy Stamping, Karla c(:

Easter Treats for Friday

Easter is right around the corner and the Sisters in Stamping are posting Easter treats for Fabulous Friday projects. Here is my project for this week--

 I made a little carrot using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (#133324, $22.95). After I punched it I ran it through the BigShot with the Fancy Fan embossing folder (#127751, $7.95).
 I sure hope that this punch makes the new 2014-15 IB&C, I think it would make fabulous gift tags for Christmas presents.

I tucked a small Lindt milk chocolate bunny inside and stamped Happy Easter, tied it up with 3 pieces of 3/8" Stitched Satin Gumball Green Ribbon. Which reminds me that ribbon will be retiring soon along with stamps, Designer Series Paper and accessories-- the Annual Retirement Sale. Stampin' Up! has changed both categories, stamps and accessories to WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. The list will be posted this coming Monday April 21, send me a note and I'll make sure you get a copy hot off the presses.

Thank-you for dropping by--

Quatrefancy Friday

Well hey there! It's Friday once again and the Sisters in Stamping are using pretty paper. Here is my card for this week--

I used the stamp set Hello, Lovely (2013-14 IB&C, pg.22) and Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper pack (#130141, $12.95). I used a technique I have wanting to try for some time now called Starburst. I found this video by Dawn O. that gives fantastic instructions, it was easy and fun to put this card together.

Happy Stamping! See you next week-- Karla c(:

Spring Fever for Friday

    I don't know about you but I'm really tired of snow. I picked Spring cards for the Fabulous Friday post this week on the Sisters in Stamping blog hoping that just the mere thought of flowers and butterflies would brighten my spirits. Here is my project--

    The original idea came from a card that my good friend Jen Sannes sent to me a couple of months ago-- it was SO DANG CUTE I had to CASE it!! I used Sahara Sand and Wisteria Wonder. Speaking of Jen, she has started a new venture here is a link for you to go and check it out-- leave a comment for her so she knows you stopped by!

    You will have to go over and check out what the other Sisters have made. Come back for next week for some projects made with Designer Series Paper.

Thank-you for coming by!
