Retiring Hostess Set – Four Seasons

Stampin Up Retired List Hostess Set Four Seasons Birthday

Hello Folks. .   Happy day to ya.  Today I have a card to share featuring one of our current Hostess Stamp Sets that will be retiring.  I found this idea some time ago and am just now getting to it but so glad I did.  I used Pear Pizzazz as my go to color for my wreath.  It is one of the colors that Stampn' Up has decided to bring back along with Island Indigo.  If you haven't seen that post yet please click here to view our Color Refresh.  My card is a standard A2 card measuring 4.25 x 11, scored at 5.25.  My color combo is Very Vanilla and Island Indigo teamed up with a piece of designer paper from our Tea For Two Series Paper and another strip of green that has long been retired.  I'm not sure exactly where it came from, Christmas paper I think.  The stamp set itself was just greenery so I decided to use another stamp set that is being retired calledItty Bitty Bits.  It is also on the retired side.  Don't you think it worked well.  It jazzed up the spring wreath and gave it that little bit more of pizzazz.  My circle is 2.25 in diameter and I was having trouble finding a scallop circle that would work and it finally dawned on me that I could use one of the pretty circle from our Delicate Doilies Sizzlits.  It pays to think out of the box once in a while.  LOL  My sentiment is from our Perfectly Penned set.  Still thought it needed a little something on that dark background so I added some of our sparkly rhinestones for just the right sparkle.  My recipe with item numbers are listed below for your convenience.

    Hi Sandy I really like this card I have been wanting to make a card with this set but had no clue on what to do.  One of my friends has the set and said I could use it.  Thanks so much for the idea.

    Sooo pretty – love the colors!   Sad to say that I have this set and not sure I've even put ink on any of the stamps…better pull it out and see if I can make some pretties with it!   TFS!
