Last-Chance Products: Pop of Paradise

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   Here's a Stampin' Up retiring product PROTIP for you.  If a stamp set and the matching framelits (or punch) carries over to the new catalog, the 10% deal for purchasing them as a bundle does NOT carry over. So, if you're in love with a bundle that's carrying over and are putting off the purchase since you know it will still be available for another year--don't forget that it will NOT be in a bundle in the new catalog.

For instance, the fabulous "Oh So Eclectic" stamp set and coordinating Eclectic Layers Framelits are offered as a bundle in the current catalog and you'll save 10% if you purchase the in a bundle before May 31, 2018. If you wait one day, starting June 1st, these items will no longer be offered in a bundle and you will have lost out on the 10% deal. 

Today's gorgeous card uses the Oh So Eclectic bundle. I received it as a swap card in November at a Stampin' Up event. I don't have the name of the artist who created this card, but I'll tell you how she made it. Also, let me point out that it uses a variety of continuing products, retiring products, and even a sold-out-already product!!
First, she started with a 4" by 4" piece of Berry Burst Color Theory Designer Series Paper (sold out & already discontinued). If you wanted to re-create this card you could use Berry Burst Card Stock. Next, she used the Eclectic Layers Framelits to cut a pattern in a 4" by 4" piece of Basic Black Card Stock. She adhered these to a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base, cut lengthwise.

Next, she stamped the image that fills in the flower of the "Oh So Eclectic" stamp set in Tempting Turquoise, Lemon Lime Twist, and Berry Burst Inks onto a Whisper White piece that she cut with one of the Layering Squares Framelits. She added Tempting Turquoise, Lemon Lime Twist, and Berry Burst textures from the "Oh So Eclectic" set. She adhered this piece to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

She stamped the outline of the flower in Basic Black Archival Ink* onto a Whisper White scrap and colored it with Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin' Write Markers. She added some Clear Wink of Stella on top for some pretty shine! She used one of the Eclectic Layers Thinlits to cut out the flower and adhered it to the stitched shape square with a Stampin' Dimensional. She also stamped the "hello" sentiment from the retiring "Pop of Paradise" stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a Whisper White scrap and punched it out with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch. She adhered this to the stitched shape square with Stampin' Dimensionals, too.

Finally, the artist tied a length of Basic Black Baker's Twine around the bottom of the card and tied in a length of retiring Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. This card is spectacular!!

*The archival inks are retiring, but there will still be Memento Tuxedo Black and StazOn Jet Black in the upcoming catalog, along with a Classic Basic Gray Ink.
REMINDER: retiring stamp sets will only be guaranteed to be available until May 25. All other products are NOT guaranteed and are only available while supplies last. ALL retiring items will be discontinued after May 31.

Next week  I'll be featuring projects made with NEW items that YOU can purchase starting on May 1st--a whole month before the new catalog goes live. The products are from the "Share What You Love" suite and I know you're going to love the projects, so come on back next week and see them! Have a great weekend!
