Over the weekend, I mentioned that there was one of the eight stamps in the Stampin' Up! Stamp Set, Everybunny, that wasn't necessarily related to Easter. And here it is!
Are those little mushrooms cute or what? While I'm hoping that the Everybunny set will stick around in the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog (so I can use it NEXT Easter, too!), I'm going to try to make the most of it while I can – just in case….
For this card, I used the same set of Designer Series Papers – Just Add Cake – that I used for my personal Easter 2012 Stamp-a-Stack. I really like the colors in that set, and it's one of the zillion products that will likely be retiring with the 2011-2012 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog. The colors in this set include one of the 2010-2012 In Colors that will definitely be retiring, and I have absolutely no reason to believe that this set of papers won't retire, either. In fact, most of the Designer Series Paper sets do retire each year. There's one or two that have carried over from one year to the next, but that's all I can recall.
Oh, and the colors – I used Wild Wasabi (the card base and some ink), So Saffron, Peach Parfait (retiring this year), and Baja Breeze. And the stamp set – one of my all-time favorite stamp sets is Sincere Salutations, and most people are guessing that this is its last year on the Stampin' Up! stock shelves. It may also be one of the (very few) stamp sets that I keep around after they retire.
Of course now that I'm more at leisure to get things done, I've gone back to tying my card up with a ribbon! I love Stampin' Up!'s coordinating embellishments, and this So Saffron Taffeta Ribbon is just perfect for this card.
AND I have a sketch! Lots of 1-3/4" measurements in this one! I hope you enjoy it and have fun doing some paper crafting this week. I'm going to be relaxing for the week because Stampin' Up! will be shaking things up come April 15th. It may not be tax day this year, but it's the day that Stampin' Up! announces the stamp sets that are going to be retiring. Your last chance for some of those stamp sets you've been thinking about buying but haven't!
Have a great week!
