Saying Goodbye is Going to be Hard!

Be sure to read all the way to the bottom - there might be a prize waiting!..........

One of the things I hate and love about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is that I fall in love with the stamps and accessories I use a lot. The hate part is that sometimes they go away! Sniff! At least I can still hoard them in my personal collection! :)

This card uses two stamp sets that are saying bye-bye soon, and two accessories that are leaving us as well.

The cute park bench comes from the Time for You set that is in the Occasions Mini which expires on JUNE 30th. I've stamped it in Basic Brown ink and colored in the birdy with Brocade Blue marker, keeping it simple. It's sponged with Rose Red ink and layered on Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink cardstock.

The medallion is the Thinking of You stamp from Circle of Friendship which is on the retiring stamp set list AND is part of the eScape Bundle Sale this month. (See my website here for details: )

I've stamped it twice with Basic Brown on Very Vanilla and Pretty in Pink and punched the pieces out with the 1" Circle punch and the 1/2" Circle punch. They are layered on to Rose Red Designer Prints Paper and Chocolate Chip cardstock which are punched with the 1 1/4" Circle punch and 1 3/8" Circle punch. The stamped circles are popped up on dimensionals, then all 4 layers are popped up above the bench layers.

The ribbon is the beautiful Chocolate Chip Twill from the Occasions Mini and the Silver Ribbon Slide is from the Silver Hodgepodge Hardware in that same catalog. Both of these are saying bye-bye at the end of JUNE! Waaah!

The base layers are Rose Red Designer Prints Paper, Pretty in Pink cardstock and Chocolate Chip cardstock. If you are attending stamp camp on 6/21 or 6/24, this is one of the cards you will be creating!

Leave me a comment if you like this one! Tell me who your best friend is and why - I'll choose a random post number on Friday morning and GIVE you this card!

Remember, ya gotta play to win!


  1. My best friend is Stephanie and she is my best friend because she has always been there for me through the thick and thin... even when we were out of contact for a year, when we re-connected it was like no time had passed at all :)

  2. my best friend is named Erin. Why? Because she is the sister I wasn't born with. We've known each other since 1st grade and have been through a lot, but we wouldn't change any of it.
