Hello, Goodbye, Hello

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   Starting today, and over the next month, I'm going to be featuring new and continuing products (yay!) and retiring products (sniff!) on my blog. I've even set up a little schedule for you. Here's what you'll be seeing.

Mondays will be stamps sets that are continuing on in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

Tuesdays will be stamp sets that are retiring (so get them before they're gone forever)!

Wednesday I'll feature NEW products from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

Thursdays will be a retiring In Color (Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, and Fresh Fig).

Fridays will be a surprise--to both of us! I'm not sure what I'll do for Fridays, so let's be surprised together.

Since it's Thursday, today's project features the retiring In Color Fresh Fig--with a little Powder Pink thrown in.

I started by stamping an image from one of my favorite retiring sets, "Amazing Life," in Fresh Fig Ink (retiring) onto a Whisper White panel that I cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die. I used my Blender Pen to lift some color from the lid of a Powder Pink Ink Pad (retiring) and colored in the letters for "happy." I adhered this to a Mossy Meadow Card Stock mat that I cut with a larger Stitched Rectangle Die. I tied a length of Fresh Fig 1/8" Sheer Ribbon (retiring) around this piece.  

PROTIP: Get the "Amazing Life" stamp set and Stitched Rectangle Dies in a bundle and save 10% off ordering them separately!

Next, I adhered a 4" by 5-1/4" gorgeous piece of printed vellum from the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper collection (retiring) to a Powder Pink Card Stock (retiring) card base--making sure that my Snail Adhesive would be hidden by the stamped image. I adhered the stamped image to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped the flowers from the "Amazing Life" set in Fresh Fig and Mossy Meadow Inks a few times onto a scrap of Whisper White Card Stock. I used my Blender Pen to pick up some Fresh Fig Ink from the lid of the pad and colored in the flowers. I fussy cut the flowers and leaves and assembled them on the card, adhering them with a Stampin' Dimensional.

To add the final bits of bling, I colored "happy" and the flowers with some Clear Wink of Stella and placed a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl (retiring) in the center of each flower. 

I think this card turned out super cute--and I'm going to miss all the retiring elements that I used to make this card. But you don't have to miss out on getting these items--they're still available (while supplies last) until June 3rd. So get your order on! What are you waiting for??!!
