May Class - a last farewell to some retiring products!

Hi Everyone, 

My class this month focussed on a whole host of retiring products.... One of the saddest departures is the Owl Punch! I'm going to miss this punch and the myriad of creatures you can create with it!

Well just a short post from me today, I'll be back with 2 blog hops before the end of the month!

Thanks for looking,

Just Add Ink #360

Hi Everyone,

It's been a long long time since I have created anything for a challenge, and when I looked for my last entry for a Just Add Ink challenge, it was way back in 2013!

Anyway, we don't need to step back in time, instead lets look at Just Add Ink's Challenge #360:

My creation:

The Fairy Celebration Stamp Set has finally found it's way into my collection and this was the first card I made with it! I have stamped some extra images onto Whisper White cardstock and hope to colour them in the next few days...

ESAD 2017 Retirement List Blog Hop

No automatic alt text available.Hi Everyone,

It's time for the ESAD 2017 Retirement List Blog Hop!

If you have been following the hop around, thank you for continuing onto my page! I love joining in the ESAD hops as we all have such a wide range of creativity! Didn't you just love Tanya's creations - she never ceases to amaze!

The retirement list is a bittersweet time of year for the Stampin' Up! annual Idea Book and Catalogue, it means a whole heap of products are retiring but it does mean a massive amount of new products are about to be released!

I decided to showcase the Owl Punch (I'm gonna miss this punch, it's so versatile!!), the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper and the 2015-17 In Colors for my cards:

The Latch Card -

 A close-up of the "Latch" (the tutorial is on splitcoast stampers) -
Bold and Bright with some banners - 

And then I decided to use some of my DSP, the gift box punch board and the Party Pop-up thinlits for my next project -

Of course, I had to add a bit of bling with the silver dazzling details (that's the spotty bit all over the Happy Birthday diecut)! This has been the best way to add glitter to so many of my cards! I'll definitely miss it when my stash runs out.....

Now, you may also be wondering just what at is ESAD is and this should explain some of it:

What this blurb may not convey is just how awesome the ESAD group is! I have been a member for most of my 10yrs as a demo and find it a great source of inspiration, advice and information on all things Stampin' Up! related.

Please continue on the hop to Pauline! She'll be excited to show you her creativity too!

Cute cards but I've used contraband!

Hi everyone,

Here's a couple of cards I've made in the last week for friends' daughters' birthdays...

The stamp is one I fell in love with years and ago and is one of a few non- Stampin ' Up! stamps I have. To make up for using a contraband stamp, all my cardstock is Stampin' Up! She is just too cute not to share!

Miss 8 decorated this notebook for a  friend who is crazy over rabbits.

It doesn't show in the photos very well but the name and insides of the ears are cut from some of the glitter paper!

More creations for work colleagues....

Hi Everyone,

Well I've had to design another goodbye card for a work colleague! I do shower and maintain a level of cleaniness but I'm starting to wonder if maybe I do smell and that's why we're saying goodbye! ;)
In all seriousness, it's actually because they are moving onto jobs after finishing uni degrees and I believe the latest person to leave is going to follow a horse related dream!

Anyway, here's what I made: (I couldn't really choose anything else than horse theme!)

The horse is from a retired stamp set called "Bareback", and it's one I'm definitely glad I've never parted with.

We have also got to send our congrats onto a different team member who is getting married!!

The theme of New Zealand was requested, so I went with the tropical vegetation.... This was my work in progress pic... Keep in mind, the colleague it was for was a bloke, so I couldn't go all girly and lacey!

The finished result - I love this paper! And I was pretty happy with my colouring - it was only 1 colour - Old Olive - via a marker and a blender pen to get all these shades of green!
