One of my favorite stamp sets for the past few years has been Beautiful You. This cling-mount stamp set has been so well loved that a few of my stamps are stained with black ink.
Beautiful You Cling-Mount Stamp Set 151412 Price: $28.00
This stamp set also includes some fun and unique sentiments that will add a splash of character to any card.
Beautiful You is on this year’s retired list that means that once Stampin’ Up! runs out of stock for this item it is gone.
Here is a link to the retired items https://bit.ly/2XSxYw2
Make sure to check back on the last chance products as one an item is gone it will no longer be order-able.
I used Paper Piecing to add a special touch to the umbrella. I used the retiring Designer Series Paper Peaceful Moments but you can use whatever to match the colors of you card.
These colors are not just for Christmas. They make a really gorgeous spring/summer card.
I used the Ornate Frames dies to help build the layers of this card.
My assistant Alex made this card. She used the sponge-brayer to build the sunset by layering colors (Crushed Curry, Pineapple punch, Mango Melody, Cajun Craze, Real Red, and Rich Razzleberry) across Whisper White card stock. Along with the Beautiful You Stamp set she used the My Meadow stamp set to build the foreground which includes trees and bushes. A chalk marker also adds the stars and the highlights.
In today’s project I am using both retired items and items that will be featured in the new Annual catalog. I love how you can blend items from to create a one of a kind project.
Here is a prerecorded Facebook Live video showing how to put this wonderful card together.
