More Samples

Don’t you hate it when you make samples intending to share them and run out of time only to have some of the products on them end up in the retired list. Well that’s what this post is all about. The stamp sets may not be retiring and you may even find some of the punches and dies aren’t either, but something on them is. Because many of the items will be carrying over I’m just going to list the stamp set or bundle, the retiring item, and the for each sample. If you would like more specifics on a sample please feel free to comment or reach out and I will be happy to share.

Country Bouquet Bundle

I actually got the idea for this card when I created a topper for my Christmas tree. Yes, I said Christmas tree. I’m a little weird and hate how dark it is when taking down the tree in January so instead we re-decorate it for Valentine’s day and leave it up long enough for the days to get longer again and bring in the light. I found a cool red heart for the top and wanted to add something to it so I made the center part that says love on it to attach to the side of the heart. Since the heart was hollow I added a stamped background this became the inspiration for the background for my card with the same focal point that I used on my tree topper. To add the sparkle to the strip to the background on the card I covered the entire section with clear embossing powder.

I have seriously fallen in love with this DSP and though it’s leaving I’m excited that there is something similar in the new catalog. Once again I created these a while ago and never shared them. Both the stamp sets and dies are carrying over but the paper sadly is not so I wanted to share them while I could.

Enjoy the Rhythm

How fun is this card. You are probably thinking that the stamp set is what I’m listing as retiring but surprisingly that is not the case. In fact the only thing on this card that is retiring is the circle die. Although you could probably use another of the stitched circles if I remember correctly it was slightly smaller which is why I didn’t use it. As I’ve mentioned before my husband loves the color combo of purple and green and another fun thing about him is he plays the drums so once again I was inspired by him when I created this card. I’m excited that this stamp set is carrying over as I think it will be fun to create more projects with it.

  • 151770 – Layering Circle Dies (R)
  • 160361 – Enjoy the Rhythm Stamp Set (C) (M)
