Yesterday I spent a few hours in my studio pulling out all the Stampin’ Up! products that are retiring. My plan is, while a product remains available for you to buy, I’ll continue to make projects for my blog using it. Over the coming weeks you’ll still see new projects, but I’ll also add links to some older ones. That way you can get one final overview of a particular stamp set or product while you still have the opportunity to get it. Today’s project uses 3 retiring products. The Wood Textures 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Night of Navy 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon are available while stocks last. Like all retiring stamp sets, the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set is guaranteed to be available until May 24th.
LOTS OF LOGS
I began with a Very Vanilla Notecard, folded it along the pre-scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder. Then using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I attached a piece of the log design from the Wood Textures DSP to cover the front.
Using more liquid glue I fixed a piece of the same log design DSP to the flap of the envelope. Then using my Paper Snips I trimmed the piece to shape following the edge of the flap.
Finally I added a 3/4″ strip of the DSP to the inside of the notecard down the right-hand edge.
IT’S YOUR DAY
Using Early Espresso Ink I stamped the It’s Your Day sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set onto some Thick Very Vanilla Card. Then I punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch.
Next I took a piece of the Night of Navy 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon and cut a V in each end. Then I folded it before attaching it to the back of the sentiment with a little Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Finally I added the sentiment to the front of the notecard with Stampin’ Dimensionals and I was done.
