Retiring In Colors and Free Beautiful Peacock

I officially went full-time at work today, which is pretty much just a status change since I've been working full-time hours for several months now anyway. I honestly LOVE my job. I'll have to post more about it later...when I have time...LOL! So, on the first day of full-time, it seems only natural to cram something extra into my day, am I right?

I had a few friends coming over to stamp and swap, and as of this morning I had no card plans! PANIC! Well, I knew I wanted to use the retiring in-colors *SNIFF SNIFF* and one of the free Sale-a-Bration (SAB) stamp sets. So I pulled out this little beauty that I actually earned 2 of (surprise Quinette! Peacocks are kind-of our thing. Ok we're obsessed.) And here's what I came up with!

We made these two cards:

After the class (and after I finished all my work) 😉 I played around with the colors and came up with the rest of these:

(I would have liked to use Dapper Denim as the card base here, but I'm already out!!! 
Waiting for my stock up order to come this week! Which reminds me, don't forget to order all the retiring colors ink pads, refills, cardstock and matching embellishments and ribbon SOON! They sell out FAST this time of year and it's your LAST CHANCE to get them! Just click on the products in the table above to add it to your cart, and don't forget to use hostess code KNB29Y2Q (or the current code in the top right corner of this blog) when you checkout to get a free thank you gift from me!) 

I think this combo is my favorite:





And now I've got a stack of beautiful cards to use for ANY occasion! Love those! I love all these beautiful retiring in-colors and am so sad to see them go BUT I'm over the moon excited about seeing the changes coming for Stampin' Up!s 30th celebration annual catalog!!!

Flower Power! Sweet Stampede Team Blog Hop

 Spring has SPRUNG here in Spring, TX! My husband even brought home flowers for me the other day! (They were a leftover table centerpiece from a work luncheon, but hey! it's a start!) So, what better theme for this month's team blog hop than FLOWERS!



I've always wanted to try this card in a box, and I knew it would look BEAUTIFUL full of flowers!



I'm going to use it for Mother's Day! Lucky for me my amazing Mom (and Dad!) will be visiting this year! I'm sure my little Sophie will have to make her own version for Grandma (and I'm sure it will be amazing!) I might end up using this card before then though. It could also be used for a sympathy card, or a missing you card, or just about any "thinking of you" occasion where you would like to send flowers!

One of the great things about these WOW factor cards, is that they CAN be mailed in a regular A2 envelope! 


I promise it DOES lay flat, even if it's tricky photographing it that way. 😉

Here are the supplies I used. You might notice that there are THREE free Sale-a-Bration items! Time is running OUT to get these! (But I'll give you a tip, that awesome Basket Textured Embossing Folder will be making an appearance in the new annual catalog! PHEW!) 

I would suggest placing an order of $50 to receive the free Heartfelt Blooms stamp set and replacing the shimmer ribbon with something else OR place an order of $100 and get both the heartfelt blooms stamp set AND the shimmer ribbon pack OR the Blossoming Basket Bundle! (You could easily substitute those stamps for the ones I've used here!) Place your order now using hostess  code KNB29Y2Q and you'll receive a bonus free gift from me!

Product List

This card was so much fun to make! I'm already planning several different versions for birthdays, congratulations, and thank yous! The possibilities are ENDLESS!
