Today is our sister Blair’s birthday but it is also the 25th of the month so that means it’s time to post a Christmas card or 2. Since it’s Blair’s birthday we are posting 2 cards using retiring Stampin Up products.
The blue card was made by Cammie when she was going crazy with her retiring Perfectly Preserved stampset #126692. Cammie used the glimmer watermark pad and silver embossing powder #126857 to stamp all the images on this card including the trees from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set #127793. In case you did not know it the Lovely as a Tree stampset is the oldest stamp in the Stampin Up catalog and is a must have set that is NOT retiring.
The second card is my Christmas card. So sorry for the busy background but chevrons are hot right now so why not use it as a background? My card is a simple santa suit. The beard was cut using Apothecary Accents framelits #127003 and then I stamped the sentiment from the retiring stampset, Just Believe #120453 stampset. I just bought this set and am sad that it is going away.

Today’s card is another twist on a pinwheel card. Cammie hand cut a piece of the Print Poetry DSP #129312 to add the pinwheel #129411 cut from a scrap of summer starfruit DSP. She finished the card by adding some midnight muse and summer starfruit double stitched ribbon. The Sentiment is stamped using the Wishes your Way #129156 stampset.
Cammie used yesterday’s card as her inspiration to step it up. Instead of a plain background she textured the white using the Cloudy Day embossing folder # #127022 from the Stampin Up Spring catalog. She cut an oval from the chevron paper in the Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP using the Ovals Collection Framelits #129381 and added her pinwheel cut from a scrap of Sprinkles and Sunshine DSP #126922 using the pinwheel die #129411 and the center is a dahlia #127556. The pinwheel is mounted on a cluster of kiwi kiss strips. The sentiment is from the Wishes Your Way stampset #129156 and then handcut into a banner.

Cammie made today’s card super simple. Card base is Island Indigo then layered with whisper white. Cammie embossed a scrap of white using the Cloudy Day embossing folder #127022 from the Stampin Up Spring catalog. After it was embossed she hand cut and popped it onto the card front. The pinwheel is cut from a scrap of Sprinkles and Sunshine DSP #126922 using the pinwheel die #129411 and the center is a dahlia #127556. The pinwheel is mounted on a cluster of kiwi kiss strips and then the sentiment from the Wishes Your Way stampset #129156 and then handcut into a banner.

One good thing about stampsets retiring is that you can purchase the MDS downloads and have it forever! The best part is the Hostess Stacks a Million download #130675 comes with never seen before DSP and card template along with other digital brushes of stamped images. I made this card in a matter of minutes using the coloring tool feature in MDS. I had these printed out during the 25% of sale on MDS printed products on going through May 31st.
Cammie used a lot of soon to be retiring products from the Stmpin Up spring catalog to create this cute “love” card. The cloudy background is a piece of DSP from the Sunshine and Sprinkles collection #126922. Cammie used the heart image from the Hostess set Million Dollar Moments #125137 to stamp on real red cardstock and then punched using the 1 1/4 ” square punch # 119865. She then hand cut a real red banner and pierced along the edges using the Stampin Up piercing tools. The focal image is a a lser cut heart from the More Amore DSP. Cammie simply snipped a single heart from the laser cut sheet of the DSP and then stamped the hearts from the Million Dollar Moments stampset and then stamped a portion of the girl and umbrella in black and then she samped and cut the umbrella in red to pop it! She used the designer brads #129329 and added the be mine sentiment is from the now retired mixed medley stampset.
Today’s card features a lot of retiring products from the Stampin Up Spring catalog. Most of the products in the spring catalog will no longer be available after May 31st. Cammie used the Hostess stamp set Million Dollar Moments #125137 as her main focal point and stamped the image again on DSP to cut out the umbrella. The stamping is done on the inside of the card and framed with a piece of DSP from the Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP #126922. She then used the 2 1/2 inch circle punch#120906 to create a window to reveal the stamped image. Cammie added a strip of Summer Starfruit cardstock and pierced a line using the piercing tools and also added lots of summer starfruit ribbon. 3 itty bitty flowers #118309 were added to the bottom of the card and embellished with basic pearls #119247. Finally, the sentiment was stamped using the Rain or Shine stamp set #12677. This card is guaranteed to brighten someone’s day.
