Last Chance Cards – Best Wishes & More

This month my hands-on stamping featured items on the Stampin’ Up! Last Chance list.  These stamp sets will no longer be available after the end of June.  The retiring colors and accessories are available while supplies last through the end of June.  If you see something you love make sure to get it before it is gone.  Your best bet is to order online through my Stampin’ Up! store – the store will update you with what is available.

This card features the stamp set Best Wishes & More.  I stamped the flowers and the leaves on a piece of Whisper White card stock and cut them out and layered them on the white square.  The colors I used for this card are Ballet Blue (this one is retiring), Rose Red and Always Artichoke.  I also used a piece of Rose Red Designer Series Paper from the Thoroughly Modern Designer Series paper pack (this one is retiring).    And there is some Always Artichoke ribbon (this is retiring) on the side as an accent.

The flower centers have Fresh Favorites buttons that are also on the last chance list.  A matching envelope coordinates with the card so you’ll be ready to put it in the mail to someone deserving.

Thanks for stopping in today!

This is one of the 2-page 12×12 spreads we made at my Wednesday night scrapbook class.  These pages use the Best Wishes & More stamp set that demonstrators received at the Stampin’ Up! Orlando Regional Conference – it is on page 55 of the Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book.  The idea for this page was based on a single 8×8 page in one of the Stampin’ Up! publications.  I expanded it into two 12×12 pages.  Colors used are Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, and So Saffron.  We used both the Big Shot machine and the new Circle Scissor Plus to make thes pages.
