Last Chance – Jan-June Mini-Catalog

The January–June 2021 Mini Catalog will be retiring soon!It’s always bittersweet to see a classic Stampin’ Up! catalog take a trip to retirement. But, we’re looking forward to all the new products on the way in the upcoming Holiday catalog in a few months! Save up to 50% on some retiring items, while supplies last, today through the end of June!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Thinking of You

Welcome to our May Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring thinking of you cards for the guys!

You may have arrived here from Tracy Held’s blog. I love her project! I chose the Sailng Home cling stamp set (#149457) along with the coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies (#149576 )for my card. The card base is Misty Moonlight with a layer of In Good Taste DSP (#152494). I am amazed at the movement in this paper. It is so pretty!

I used the Layering Circle Dies (#151770) with the sailboat popped up on top of it. I stamped the birds, sailboat and sentiment in Midnight Muse. The extra waves were hand drawn with the Midnight Muse Stampin’ Write Marker. The sentiment is from the Art Gallery photopolymer stamp set (#158201). A small piece of White Bakers Twine anchors the left end of the sentiment, die cut with the Floral Gallery Dies (#154316).

Here are up close pictures of the Designer Series Paper used on this card. The side I used on my card and the reverse. Aren’t they amazing?!
