Paper Angel

Paper Embossed Angel Retired Lists

Hello Folks. . .  Happy Friday. .   OMG it's almost May and you will never guess what I just received in the mail.  I have officially turned in my first Craft Fair app.  Now I have to start planning.  The first one is just before Halloween and that's a good thing.

Back in 2011 I came across a very cute angel over on Vicki Burdick's blog.  Right then I decided it would make a wonderful gift.  She was nice enough to pass along the creator of this little angle and you can find the link here.  Now for a few of the deets. 

My little angle is done with Whisper White cardstock.  I used the template provided for her body and wings.  I dressed her up just a tad by using our embossing folder Elegant Bouquet #115964.  My head piece is one of the small (1.1) glass bulbs, I found mine at the M store.  When you visit Carol's site you will see she has designed several different styles.  I chose the one with the feathers.  I thought they gave the angle a little bit more whimsy.  I added a few pretties to her skirt.  Some pearls from our Basic Pearls #119247, and some Dazzeling Diamonds Glitter Glue.  I attached a bow made from Organdy Ribbon with a small pearl.  Her halo is a white pipe cleaner, attached some feathers on her wings and used some silver cord for her hanger.  Don't be intimidated folks she is very easy to put together and you can deocrate her any way your imagination takes you.  To put her together I used a combination of tackie glue and hot glue.  Just be careful with the hot glue.  The angel can pop apart very easily, store it in a good environment, not to hot and not to cold. 

I hope you enjoyed todays project.  I have a bunch more to make.  Did you get a chance to browse thru the RETIRED LISTSThere's a lot to take in, so you might need to check it a couple of times.  Quantities are limited on most accessories, so don't delay in placing your orders.  To check out the list once again go to the top of this blog and click on Retired Lists.  Click here to view my very special offer on a FREE CATALOG.

Some Thoughts On The Retiring Accessories List

Stampin Up Delicate Doilies Stampin Up Retired Accessories List

Hello Friends. . .  Happy Thursday to ya.  Boy, have you had a chance to look at the Retired Accessories List.  They did some house cleaning didn't they.  Don't be alarmed.  Here are some clarifications regarding the accessories list. 

  • Stampin' Up will no longer be offering Craft Ink Pads except for Black and White
  • All of our Classic Ink Pads are being reconfigured to a foam base.  That's why you see an asterisk next to the item.
  • The Stampin' Up Markers are still being offered in the Color Family's Collections (re:  Brights, Subtals, Regals).  There will be just a few select colorls that you will be able to order individually.
  • 12 x 12 textured paper will no longer be available
  • 12 x 12 card stock will only be available in certain colors.
  • Some accessories are being repackaged.

I hope this helps with some of your concerns.  If you have any more questions please let me know.  You can email me here.  They tell me change is good.

Today I have a card to share that I saw on Pickled Paper Designs,  I changed the colors and stamp set.  The stamp set is Delicate Doilies W122590/C122592.  My colors are Crumb Cake, Early Expresso, Very Vanilla and DP from the retired Spice Cake Package.  Oh how I love that paper.  My sentiment is from the stamp set Just Believe.  I also used some Linen Thread and a More Mustard Button. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Look over the Retired Stamp List and Accessories List carefully so you don't miss out on your favorites.  Also check out my post below for my FREE catalog offer.  Have a great day.  Happy Stamping!  Toodles

Fifth Avenue Meets Mother of Pearl

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.

Bright Blossoms and a MOJO Sketch


SUO Bright Blossoms Summer Smooches Suite Stampin Up Retired List Birthday

Bright Blossoms W125495/C125497

Good Morning Friends.  Happy Tuesday.  Today I have a card to share using the new sneek peek stamp set Bright Blossoms and this weeks MOJO Sketch.  What a combo.  I just love it!!!!!  Crumb Cake is a very popular color so today I decided to give it a whirl.  I embossed my base card with one of the new Impressions Embossing Folders (Hearts) #125601.  You can find it in the Occasions Mini  pg 7.  It's not just for Valentine's Day.  LOL  Next up is a layer of Rose Red cardstock nested with a piece of Whisper White.  I wrapped a piece of our 5/8" Pretty In Pink Satin Ribbon #117289 around it.  For my focal point I stamped with the flower tops and leaves from Bright Blossoms W125495/C125497 on some Whisper White, then punched them out with our 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches.  For my sentiment I used our word set Friendly Phrases W126149/C126151 Boy, I have been using this set a lot lately, it sure does have some cute phrase and the fonts are mixed.  For a little flair I added some brads.  You can use this card for a birthday or just to say hello.  Sometimes they are the best cards to receive.  On the inside I did add another layer of Whisper White just to make it easier to read.
