Stampin' Up! Spring Sampler

Yesterday, I posted the lists of  Stampin' Up! RETIRING products.  (Check it out HERE)

For the next week or so I'll be featuring some RETIRING items. 
Today's card is a Pals Paper Arts Challenge  (PPA157) 

featuring Regal Rose,  a retiring color!
(note: I didn't actually get the card entered in the Challenge.  But it inspired me!) 

Spring Sampler Clear-Mount Stamp Set

It's not shown in the new catalog! So, as far as I know, it's only available until May 31st!




The little frog was perfect for this card!  I love the contrast of the  
Regal Rose and the Gumball Green
Definitely a lively combo.
The Ovals Collection Framelit Dies (129381) (also in the Spring Catalog) were a perfect way to  highlight the frog.  The center oval was punched from the Large Oval Punch (119855)
The Square Lattice Folder (119976) is a perfect way to add texture and interest to the Regal Rose 
  Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die - by Stampin' Up!

was a great way to frame the ribbon
 Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions Embossing Folders
 What do you think?
Hah!   Did you notice the ribbon changed color??   Did you notice anything else??

This card was going to be a great card for class.......but I wanted to Simplify it.

So, I skipped 2 steps!
The small center oval and the White Oval Frame.

I also changed the accent color to Summer Starfruit.  It doesn't have quite the contrast, 
so it creates a more calming card front.
 This is the card we made at class.
Ah!  This is exactly why we make our own cards! 
 To customize them to fit the recipient, the event.  We can make it very personal!


If you would like to attend a class but can't make it in person....contact me for information on a 
Card Kit!
One more plug for this stamp set.  I LOVE crisp little images like this.  They are so versatile.  
some ribbons and punches.....
WALA!
Instant gift tags, quick lunchbox notes.

Don't forget to check out some similar retiring sets....I don't know that I will part with mine
