Stampin Up released the retiring list of stamps and accessories in the Uk on Wednesday and there is a LOT on there!! I had a class last night showing some some of the lovely things that are going and thought I'd make another card this morning based on the Inspiration Challenge over at SCS. I chose this inspiration piece and here's what I came up with:
The rose was created by stamping Ruby Red first then Bravo Burgundy, and the leaves are Mellow Moss and Always Artichoke (Ruby Red and Mellow Moss are both going). The background is Blush Blossom (also going..!) and I've stamped the swirls in either Sahara Sand or Basic Grey. The butterfly was stamped with Soft Suede and sponged with Blush Blossom. I covered the leaves, rose and butterfly with clear embossing powder so they are nice and glossy. I added a few Ruby Red buttons to finish (pretty much the last of my stash in that colour!).
If you live in the UK and are interested in purchasing any Stampin Up products, particularly those on the retiring list as they won't be available after September, do get in touch. If you live in the Bristol area and would like to host a party (and get some free goodies!) I have a number of incentives running at the moment - just ask for more details!
Thanks for stopping by today...
