So long Stippled Blossoms

Welcome to our April Blog Hop, you should have arrived here from the lovely Angela Lorenz.  This month it's all about celebrating (and maybe mourning a little) the great products that will be retiring soon. 

SU Apothecary Accents, Dictionary, Bitty Banners, Flower Frenzy
Card closed
Stippled Blossoms was one of the first Stampin' Up! sets I purchased and I love and use it just as much today as I did then. This really is one of my all-time favourites and I'm so sad to see it go.  I've combined it here with the retiring In-Colours: Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, Baked Brown Sugar and Coastal Cabana - weren't they great colours!

Double Gate Fold

This card also includes the retiring punches: Small Oval and Artisan Label as well as retiring framelets: Apothecary Accents (another firm favourite of mine) and Bitty Banners.

Just to continue the retiring theme, I've also used the retiring background Dictionary stamp.

Other retiring products featured in this card are the Label Love stamp set, Flower Frenzy Bigz die and the  Petite Pairs stamp set.

Remember, the retiring products are selling at up to 50% discount but are only available until 2nd June (while stocks last), so if there's something you like on the list of retiring products - don't hesitate - jump in and get yourself a bargain now.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit here.  When you've finished, remember to click the "Next" button to move on to visit the next Crazy Crafter, the very talented Sue Wdowik who has done an excellent organisational job as our host this month.

85th Birthday Pop Out Window Card

Thank you for joining us on our Crazty Crafters Blog Hop - I do hope you are enjoying the journey.

It's my Mother-in-Law's 85th birthday next week so I thought I would share the card I have made for her.  We're hosting her party here at our house and I decided to use the colours black and silver to go with the party decorations.  They're her favourite colours.

I really enjoyed making this card and I'm sure I'll be making more suspension cards in the future - it's so much fun!  Many thanks to Deb Valder at Stampladee for her excellent instructions.

I should have made the suspension small enough to fit inside the card when the card is closed - but never mind .....envelope punch board to the rescue!!

The flower has an Antique Brad centre and is made from some black and silver netting that I've had in a drawer for quite a few years now!
