Fond Farewell to Just Believe

For the most part, I am okay with saying goodbye to the retiring products at the end of each catalogue. Each year though, there are a few stamp sets and products that I just can't bear to part with yet, and this year I decided to host a Fond Farewell Party for them so I could use them one more time for classes (and maybe convince you that you need them too!). These are the products I won't be giving away at my BOGO Catalogue Kick-Off Party next week. There is still time to register for both of these events... you don't want to miss them!

This card features two products I'm sad to see leaving - the Just Believe stamp set and Baja Breeze. Dawn O posted a card like this one, and I just had to make one for myself. The best part is there is only one ink (VersaMark) and this card is so quick & easy! We'll be making this card at my Fond Farewell party next Thursday.

Stamps: Just Believe*
Inks: VersaMark, Soft Suede
Card stock: Naturals White, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze*

Perfectly Preserved... get it while you can!

I'm sad that the Perfectly Preserved stamp set and framelits will be gone after June 3rd, and had to use them one more time for my Stepped Up Cards class this weekend.

I created a gatefold card, and used the Stampin' Score tool to create the scored lines on the Basic Grey card base. The jar was stamped (full strength and stamped off) with Gumball Green ink, then I sponged the card stock with Pool Party and Gumball Green inks. I used More Mustard (also retiring) to add a little pop to the card.

Stamps: Perfectly Preserved
Inks: Gumball Green, Pool Party, More Mustard
card stock: Basic Grey, Whisper White, More Mustard
Other: Small Oval punch, Beautiful Wings embosslit, Basic Pearls
