Fifth Avenue Floral Birthday Stampin' Up Retired List

Hello Friends. . .  Happy Friday.  Let's bid a fond farewell to two of Stampin' Ups retiring stamp sets, Fifth Avenue Floral #113734 and Heard from the Heart W111644/C120006.  These stamps are available till May 31st.  You can view the RETIRED LIST  here. The Retired Accessories List will be released on April 25th.  Now on to the deets .

  • Standard A2 card size.  My card base is Soft Suede layered with a piece of Pretty In Pink and layered again with Designer Paper from Beau Chateau #122357
  • For my circles I used my nesties.  If you're just a Stampin' Up Girl they have the Perfect Pennants Die #123126 for the scallop and you can match that up with one of SUs circle dies and punches.
  • My technique is called the Faux Mother of Pearl  technique.  You can find it on Splitcoaststampers.  Go to Resources and search for Faux Mother of Pearl.  I took a piece of Pretty In Pink and sponged it with our Frost White Shimmer Paint #116854.  Be careful, you don't want to cover up all of your Pink, leave some showing so you can see the contrast.  Just dab with your sponge till you get it the way you like it.  Next I stamped my image with Craft White Ink and embossed it with White Embossing Powder #109132 and used the Heat Tool #100005.  Then I cut them out with our Paper Snips #103579.  If you don't have then yet put them on your list.  Very nice pair of sharp pointed scissors.
  • For my leaves I used the Sweet Stem Embosslit Die #114513 and the Big Shot.
  • My sentiment was embossed in white and heated like the Lilly.
  • My pretty is our 5/8" Pretty In Pink Satin Ribbon 117289 and tied in a pretty bow.
  • On the inside I put a piece of Very Vanilla and stamped Happy Birthday from our Hostess Set Happiest Birthday Wishes.  Place an order or Host a Workshop for $150 and this set is yours for only $15.  If your a veteran of SU you can classify this set as a Level 3 Hostess Set. 

I hope this gives you some inspiration to get your fingers inky today.  In the next month you will see lots of samples of Retiring Stamps sets.  Be sure and check the list.  You don't want to miss out on your favorite retiring sets.
