Say Goodbye to Sheet Music & All Things Thanks

I haven’t used either of these stamp sets often, I’m not even sure I’ve used Sheet Music at all.  At OnStage in April, Mary Polcin demonstrated her two million dollar stamp set (she was the first to get to one million and Stampin’ Up! hadn’t thought of having the demonstrators create a stamp set yet) and she was inking the edges of her paper.  I haven’t done this in a while so I decided to do that on this card along with tearing the edges of the paper.

I may have gone overboard. 🙂

I had leftover pieces of the Delightfully Detailed Specialty Paper laying around and a tiny piece of Lace Trim so I stuck them on too.

For tearing my edges I used The Tearing Edge, anyone else still have one of these?

Say Goodbye to Sheltering Tree

Another tree set going goodbye.  I’ve always like this one too, especially how the leaves stamp separated from the tree trunk.  I used the piece of Wood Textures paper that I embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder left over from yesterday’s card.  The trunk is stamped with Early Espresso and the leaves are stamped with Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz.  I moved the leaves on my Stamparatus before stamping the second layer.

Say Goodbye to Lovely as a Tree

I can’t believe Lovely as a Tree is retiring…well, it has been around for 10 years so maybe it’s time.  I still love the stamp set though.  I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with the light Balmy Blue and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.  I also embossed the Wood Textures paper with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder but you can’t really see it in the photo.

#MinneapolisOnStage2019 Swaps

I don’t usually bring many swaps with me to OnStage because that’s just another thing to add to my To-Do list.  What I normally do is bring with what I create at Demos Galore but this time many of those had Sale-a-bration paper on them and I like to swap current product.  That left me with 7 cards from Demos Galore and 1 extra card from another swap.  No pressure to find people to swap with this way, I was done in no time.  🙂  Kristie was even kind enough to give me one of her cards.

Throwback Thursday with the March 2019 Paper Pumpkin

The March 2019 Paper Pumpkin was designed to use numbers on the cards but since I don’t know who these are going to yet, I decided to use a cake stamp.  Cake Soiree was a little too girly and I wasn’t sure it would fit well.  Sooooo, I pulled out “Birthday Whimsy” from the 2008 Sale-a-Bration.  Anyone else still have that set?

Check out the YouTube video for how the cards are designed to look.

This is basically the same as the designed card except I used the cake and moved Happy down to the bottom of the label.  I also used gold Wink of Stella on the candles, another throwback.

I did try one with the candles from the stamp set but it was hard to get them lined up:

This is the inside which is as designed.

Here is the second card with just the cake change:

I didn’t like the confetti stamp on the front so I changed it to a strip of Bermuda Bay embossed in the Sequins 3D embossing folder with the same inside:

As usual, the March Paper Pumpkin kit came with extras that I haven’t finished using up yet (maybe I’ll have another post) but I did make two more cards out of them with a pop up in the middle.
