A Few of my Favorite Retiring Items …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared my Top 5 Tips for getting the most out of the Retirement List, today … I’d like to share my a few of my Favorite Retiring products that I hate to see go. One good thing about retiring the older products … we get NEW!!

Let me begin with one of the first suites I saw and just had to have; the World of Good Suite ….

From the Beautiful World Bundle to the World of Good Designer Specialty paper to the Antique Corners & Slides … this suite was fun to make cards with, plus it makes great scrapbook pages. It hurts to see these amazing items retire, but many items have great discounts so you can enjoy some sweet savings! Here are just a few of the creations I have made …

The dies are 75% Off plus there are great savings on the rest of the bundle as well …

Embellishments are also a must have in my craft room … I love using them on my cards and for scrapbooking. Here are a few of my favorites, and they include the Antique Corners & Slides that are included in the World of Good Suite ….

One more item I would like to share with you is the handy Craft & Carry Stamparatus Bag. I used mine for my Stamparatus, some extra plates and a few projects!! This little beauty is sturdy and ready to do the job for you.

These treasures are a great find and won’t last long, especially with the great discounts offered.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my post today.

Enjoy your day ~

A World of Good …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

First and foremost I want to send a BIG THANK YOU to all of you who joined me yesterday for my All Day “Virtual” World Cardmaking Event … I had so much fun. The best part were the cards that we made together, and I’m here to share those with all today.

You can’t do World Cardmaking Day without using the World of Good Suite …

You will simply fall in love with this beautiful suite … it’s perfect for scrapbooking your travels and making beautiful cards! We stepped out of the box yesterday and created Christmas cards with this amazing suite. Let’s begin with the “Gold” card …

We began with the beautiful World of Good Specialty Designer Series paper … this is part of the entire suite or can be purchased along with the bundle (but you’re going to want it all!) It’s hard to see but the designer paper has a Gold Foil mat behind it.

Next, we sponged Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz onto Whisper White Cardstock and die cut with the detailed globe die. These were then glued onto Gold Foil paper to tie in the gold in the World of Good Specialty Designer Series paper.

Once we attached our “world” we wanted to make them look like Christmas Ornaments so we added bows, using the Old Olive ribbon from the”All the Trimmings” Ribbon Combo pack. This added a cute touch to the card and gave us the “ornament” look we were going for.

Next up… our greeting which comes from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. I embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of scrap paper that was previously watercolored from my Technique Tuesday LIVE on Facebook. My stampin’ friends and I were very happy with the way this turned out, so we moved onto our next card ….

We started this card with our globes … Stamped with Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and sponged with Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz. Then they were die cut with the coordinating dies from the bundle. Wink of Stella was added on the sponged areas … and then they were embossed with Clear Embossing powder … WOW!!

For the backgound we choose the Old World Paper embossing folder …

The Old World Paper embossing folder is included in the product “suite” … I will have the suite and the bundle along with the other products listed below for you. During our stamping session, I let the attendees of my presentation pick out the background color … the winner was Old Olive …

I had to share this angle with you so you could see that the Wink of Stella shows through beautifully with the clear embossing … it also makes the black stand out! They are stunning! To keep with the ornament them, I used the Black Bakers Twine that was included with the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit!

The greeting comes from Itty Bitty Christmas and was die cut using the cirlcle dies. The little banner behind it was hand cut and used to pop the greeting.

I hope you enjoyed these two beautiful cards the I created with the help of my stampin’ friends on World Cardmaking Day. It was a blast!!

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you have a beautiful day ~

My Favorite: World of Good Suite

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Yesterday I posted a video with 4 New Product Suites, and asked what “Your” favorite was, and what you thought “My” favorite would be … well Lynne, you were correct! My favorite new suite is the “World of Good”, fitting for what this world is going through right now.

This enchanting suite is full of inspirational sentiments for your graduates, dear friends and travel adventures … right up my alley!! How about you?

On today’s card I featured the impressive World of Good Specialty Designer Series paper as my backdrop to my hand stamped sentiment. I stamped off on the “world” stamp so the sentiment would become the focal point.

Once stamped, I matted my sentiment with Basic Black to coordinate with my base and then added the Antique Corners. I wanted to add a “slider” too so I slipped a piece of cardstock through and cut a banner end.

I think using the Antique Corners & Sliders gave the card a “memories” feel … and when you are telling your friend that they make the world a better place, I think you’ve got some “history” together ❤

Lynne told us that her favorite suite is the Forever Fern … also a great suite. The designer paper is stunning and well, greenery can be used anywhere and for any occasion! Here is the very first card I made with that suite …

You are sure to see a lot more cards featuring both of these amazing new product suites. I’m still interested to hear from more of you and what you are lovin’ in the new catalog.

Thanks so much for joining me today, I’ve got some cool stuff to share with you tomorrow!!

Have a wonderful day ~
