It’s two weeks until Christmas…are your gifts wrapped yet? I still have gifts to wrap but am ready with gift tags for the presents. In last month’s card class, we made Christmas gift tags using the Sending Cheer Bundle from the Sept-Dec. Mini Catalog from Stampin’ Up! Combining the Sending Cheer Christmas gift tags with the Tailor Made Tags Dies makes creating quick and easy. Need multiples?…It’s a breeze to do! To add “a little extra” use the Christmas Tidings Embossing Folder but you can substitute with any embossing folder.
If you haven’t purchased the Sending Cheer Bundle – act fast! It’s on the Last Chance retiring list. It may not arrive in time to use for this Christmas but you’ll have it for next year. Plus there are elements appropriate for year round use. In addition, the Christmas Tidings Embossing Folder is also retiring and is currently discounted too.
Basic White Cardstock: (3) 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ for tag die cuts; 2″ x 4″ (3) for stamping
Real Red Cardstock: 2-1/4″ x4-1/4″ (tag die cut), scrap for sentiment layering
Smoky Slate Cardstock: 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ (tag die cut)

At the recent Luv 2 Stampin GA group meeting, we held a card swap to share card ideas with one another. For my creation, the goal became combining new product with retiring products. For the new product, I choose the new Blossoms in Bloom Bundle. The Blossoms In Bloom Stamp Set and coordinating Many Layered Blossoms Dies offer versatility for creating beautiful floral themed cards. Mark your calendar, you can order this set on June 3, 2020. For the card below, I stamped the blossoms stamp and die cut an overlay from the retiring Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. I love the look the designer series paper gives to the flowers. Details for you to recreate the card are below.
Create card base by cutting a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then score at 4-1/4″ and fold.
With the Many Layered Blossoms Dies, cut the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper (6″ x 6″ piece) to create overlay. Check out the discounted price under Project Materials below!
Cut Whisper White cardstock layer – 5-1/4″ x 4″. Use the cut blossoms layer as your guide to determine where to stamp the flower centers.
Using the large blossoms stamp from the Blossoms In Bloom Set, stamp onto the Whisper White cardstock with Seaside Spray Classic Stampin’ Pad. Attach to the Rococo Rose card base using adhesive.
Add the blossoms overlay to the stamped blooms using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a scrap piece of Whisper White (approximately 1/2″ x 2-1/2″), stamp the sentiment using Rococo Rose Classic Stampin’ Pad. This sentiment comes from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set. After stamping, cut a “v shape” to create a pennant end. Add to the card using Mini Glue Dots.
Finish the card by tying a knotted bow using the Rococo Rose Scalloped Ribbon and attach beside the sentiment with glue dots.
The Blossoms In Bloom Bundle will offer you lots of creative options. Be sure to order it on June 3 and have fun using Designer Series Papers to create different layering pieces.

Just popping in for a quick reminder that the Year-End Closeout is coming to an end soon!
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! My Christmas Day was lots of fun and full of laughter. My two grandchildren provided hours of amusement. The fun of watching them open their gifts and seeing their reactions was priceless. Then in the evening, we were entertained with a musical concert. Granddaughter Brooklynn (2 1/2) was lead singer, grandson Alex (10) played cardboard drums and along with his mom, Karen, were backup singers. It was definitely a perfect way to end the day!

I never thought I would see the day that our Lovely as a Tree stamp set would retire from the Stampin’ Up! catalogs. However, the day has come so it’s time to bid a final goodbye. Yes, the Lovely as A Tree stamp set is retiring. In honor of saying a final goodbye, the following card has been created. You can always use it for any season. Since trees are blooming, I highlighted the trees to look like leaves are budding. That’s what makes it such an awesome stamp set, you can create a variety of looks.
Here are the details for the card: First, sponge the sky in Balmy Blue onto a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. Stamp thee trees were stamp using Early Espresso (as well as sentiment from Wonderful Romance which is also retiring). Allow the Early Espresso to dry. Then sponge the grass using Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pad. The birds are from High Tide stamp set and are stamped using the Early Espresso The Gingham Gala Daffodil Delight is the Designer Series Paper layer (retiring) and the card base is Granny Apple Green. Use the following Stampin’ Blends colors to create the tree buds: Granny Apple Green, Mossy Meadow and Old Olive.
This is one of the most beloved sets in the history of Stampin’ Up!. It’s going to be hard to let it go. The stamp set is guaranteed to be available until May 24 so I encourage you to consider ordering this classic stamp set soon.
Since Easter is quickly approaching, I want to share a simple Easter Treat Holder that you can make last minute. This is the final project from this month’s class.

The treat holders feature the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper. Use the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack to embellish with flowers. Below are details on recreating the project.
Granny Apple Green Cardstock: 9-1/2″ x 2″ score at 4-1/2″ & 5″ and one piece 3-1/2″ x 1″ score at 1/4″ on each side then cut in half at 1-3/4″ so you will have 2 pieces 1-3/4″ x 1″
