Bon Voyage Bordering on Romance

Have you check out the retirement list that was posted Wednesday? Well Bordering on Romance (item 125480/125482) is on that list. What a great stamp set to use for all kinds of occasions.  Here are some of the cards I made using this stamp set.

Bordering on Romance (1)

This first one uses Baja Breeze and the wonderful Twitterpaded Designer Series Paper (item 125406). I’m really going to miss this paper pack.

Bordering on Romance (2)

This second card uses the Loving Thoughts stamp set (item 125843/125845). This is a great sentiment set since it covers a lot  of different occasions.

And this final card using our retiring color Certainly Celery. I’m sad to see it go, but am happy that Pear Pizzazz will be replacing it since that was a favorite of mine in the past when it was one of our in colors.

Bordering on Romance (5)

Saying Goodbye to Just Believe

Just Belive

One of my very favorite stamp sets is Just Believe (item 116948/120453) so I was rather sad to see this on the retirement list. 

Just Believe has been one of my favorite sets because it is great to use with so many different techniques. This first card was part of my faux silk technique class last week. I love the combination of Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade together – it gives such a soft feminine feel, don’t you think?

These next cards I made using a watercolor technique. I love the way they turned out. I used a combination of Night of Navy and Old Olive this time.

And finally one in silhouette using Cajun Craze and Basic Black

Language of Friendship Filter Flowers Tutorial

I love the sentiment in the Language of Friendship stamp set (item 122750/122752) and thought it was perfect sentiment for this card I made recently for my friend’s birthday.

Language of Friendship

Do you like the filter flower on this card? If you follow my blog you’ve heard me mention before that I love our Stampin’ Spritzer (item 126185) and find them rather addictive, so I thought I would try them with our NEW White Creped Filter Paper (item 129393) from the Spring Catalog.

Since I’ve tried making my first filter flower they’ve become rather an obsession of mine; right now I’m finding that I’ve been adding them to everything – lol.

I’m having so much fun making these filter flowers that I wanted you to be able to join in the fun too! So here is my latest video tutorial – Stampin’ Spritzer Filter Flowers. I hope you’ll enjoy it.

And if you liked the video you’ll want a copy of my FREE Tutorial for my Language of Friendship card. You can just click on the link below to get your copy.
