You're On Fire - Magical Day

Hi friends!  I'm back today with another set of retiring favourites - sigh!  It's the season of saying goodbye, but it's okay, I promise - the season of saying HELLO! is right around the corner, with the new catalogue being launched on June 1st.  I'll be giving you the first introduction to the upcoming Stampin' Up! catalogue on the blog tomorrow, but not before we give some love to this retiring favourite - Magical Day. 

This stamp set and Designer Series Paper were an instant favourite for SO many people - and with adorable characters, fun patterns, and bright colours, who can blame them?!  I've used the mermaids and the unicorns before, but this was my first time showing that dragon some love.  He colours up beautifully with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers for a fabulous shaded look - and it's SO easy, I promise!  


One of the most fun things about this card was getting to play with Brusho Watercolour Crystals - these fabulous little bits of colour burst and pop when they contact water, creating a one-of-a-kind look every time.  They're a blast to play with!  I used Brusho on this card to create the dark blue circle behind the dragon, as well as the burst of flames - so fun!

Thankfully, Brusho is sticking around in the upcoming Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, but so many of our favourites here are not!  We will be saying goodbye to the Magical Day stamp set and coordinating Magical Mates Framelits Dies, as well as the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It's also curtains for the washi tape, black thread, Tangerine Tango, AND the Diagonal Stripe Background Stamp shown here!  Yikes!

Most supplies on the retiring list are only available while supplies last, and they've already started selling out!  Check out the links below, make a shopping list, and head over to my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! Store to get shopping while selection is still available!

      

See you again soon - have a fabulous day!  Don't forget to stop in tomorrow for a first look at brand new and unreleased Stampin' Up! supplies from the upcoming 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue - I can't wait to share them with you!

You're My Anchor - Guy Greetings

Hello friends!  As April marches on, so do the retiring features... this one has been on my desk a LOT lately!  Guy Greetings is such a great stamp set, and it's been a staple for my masculine cards for a couple of years now.  It's going to be so hard to say goodbye! 

This is the first card of a few that I'll be featuring using this beautiful set - there's at least two more on my desk waiting to be photographed.  


This card is simple to let the background shine, but I love the look of the simple nautical anchor and the sweet sentiment paired with the distressy-beachy faux-wood background.  It's a fun and simple technique created by dragging ink pads across Glossy White Cardstock - there's no wrong way to do it, so try it out and have fun!

Most supplies on the retiring list are only available while supplies last, and they've already started selling out!  Check out the links below, make a shopping list, and head over to my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! Store to get shopping while selection is still available!

It's a Little Cheesy - Dad Jokes

Hi friends, and happy Friday!  It's a gorgeous day in Calgary and after spending the morning in my craft room, I'm getting ready to head to a fabric sale with my bestie this afternoon.  What could be better?  Oh, I know - PIZZA! 

Pizza is literally the perfect food, isn't it?  I'm pretty sure it's not only delicious, but also contains something from every food group if you do it right.  What's your favourite kind of pizza?  I'm all about Neopolitan pizza, thin-crust, oven-fired, and folded in half before biting in... ideally with artichokes, kalamata olives, and Sopressata.  Oh, geez, am I drooling?  Sorry about that... 

Today's card is a little cheesy... pun FULLY intended, of course, as I feature the Dad Jokes stamp set!  This hilarious and eye-roll-inducing stamp set is a great one for the cheeseball guys in your life, which is basically every dad on the planet, isn't it?  Puns come with the territory of fatherhood.  


But it doesn't need to be JUST for dad, of course!  This silly sentiment holds its own for a fun pick-me-up card for anyone in your life... as long as they love pizza.  And if they don't love pizza, why are you friends with them?!


Dad Jokes is on the retiring list this year, which means that come June, it's gone, gone, gone!  Also retiring?  That adorable little wooden heart frame, from the Hearts & Stars Elements.  Get 'em before they're gone - they're a favourite of mine and I know you'll love them too.

Most supplies on the retiring list are only available while supplies last, and they've already started selling out!  Check out the links below, make a shopping list, and head over to my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! Store to get shopping while selection is still available!
