Saying Goodbye

Can you believe it…it is another Saturday already!  And what a fine Saturday it is!  The sun is supposed to be shining all day and my husband and I have decided to take the weekend off from unpacking.  We’ll see if that happens!

This time of year it is all about what is retiring from Stampin’ Up! and I have to say a couple of my favorite things are going away.  As soon as I say that our theme this week is saying good-bye…I just KNEW #1 on my list for using was Gorgeous Grunge.  I am going to so miss this set!

So beside the Gorgeous Grunge I also added in there Layering Letters (another GREAT set) and Crazy About You.  The Watermelon Wonder is going away and so is this version of Rhinestone.  So…saying good-bye to a lot!

Here’s the details…

  • Watermelon Wonder – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp large scatter with Peek-a-boo Peach and small scatter with Watermelon Wonder and Bermuda Bay, stamp letters in Memento Black.  Layer onto Basic Black 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Bermuda Bay – 1/2 x 1 1/4, stamp you using Memento Black, cut into banner, add using dimensionals
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off.

I just lover how happy this is!  And it makes me happy to tell you…

Crazy About You

TSSC361What a fun sketch Mary Jo has for us this time for the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  It is such a simple one and you can do so many thing with it.

As we are getting to end of the current catalog, I’m trying to revisit some sets and designer papers that I just didn’t use as much as I would have liked.  I LOVE the Gold Soiree dsp so you put it together with the Crazy About You set and this is what I came up with for today’s challenge.

Here’s the details –

  • Crisp Cantaloupe – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Pistachio Pudding – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, layer onto Garden Green 3 5/8 x 4 7/8
  • Gold Soiree dotted print – 1 3/8 x 3 7/8, cut into banner on both ends and add to panel.  Stamp greeting in Memento Black and add panel to card front.
  • Stamp flower 3 times in Calypo Coral, cut out and layer using dimesnionals and add to banner.
  • Add Something Borrowed Embellishment to center of flower to finish off

TSSC361This is such another GREAT sketch…I hope you can join the fun!    Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

Gorgeous Grunge

MelonHelloBoy…do we have an interesting challenge for you for the SUO challenge this time.  What is it, you ask?  Well, it’s to make a card for a teen.  Hmmm…now that one is a bit perplexing since I honestly don’t know a single teen right now…well unless you count some of my students!

Anyway I sort of thought this might work for a girl teen…it’s pink and it happy!  I think those two things would make it work…don’t you?

Here’s the details…

  • Melon Mambo – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Irresistibly Yours SAB dsp – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, use the diagonal stripe piece.  Stamp the medium Gorgeous Grunge using Melon Mambo ink and then CAREFULLY wipe off the access ink!  You do have to be really careful with this.
  • Layer onto Basic Black – 3 3/4 x 4 and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Cut out hello using Basic Black and add to card front.
  • Make ‘enamel’ dots using Crystal Effect, silicon pad and a black sharpie (one dry).  Add to card front using glue.
  • Melon Mambo – 5/8 x 1 3/8.  Stamp you using Memento Black, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see which one they picked!
