Stampin' Up! Saying Goodbye to the Retiring List!

Hey there! It's time again for the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! Our theme is "Saying Goodbye". We're featuring some of our favorite products retiring from the Annual Catalog on May 3rd.


For my project I'm using Dandelion Wishes!


I used 1" x 5" strips of So Saffron, Coastal Cabana, and Calypso Coral, adhering  to a 5" x 3 3/4" Basic White prepared with a layer of Adhesive Sheet. I trimmed the strips flush with the white layer before adding a 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"  Basic White mat layer. I heat embossed the dandelions with white embossing powder, adding Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some sparkle.


I heat embossed the sentiment on Coastal Cabana, punching with a retiring 2" Circle Punch. I added a Basic White mat punched with the retiring 2 1/4" Circle Punch.


Inside I stamped just the dandelions.


Card dimensions:

Coastal Cabana Base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4"

Basic White layer: 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"

Basic White layer to adhere strips: 5" x 3 3/4"

So Saffron, Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral strips: 1" x 5"

Coastal Cabana for greeting and Basic White mat: 2 1/2" x 3

Basic White inside: 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"

Love the Dandelion Wishes set. What a great way to use up scraps of cardstock and turn them into a pretty card!

Love the blocks of color. Great idea and a fun color combination too.
