Stampin' Up! Stippled Blossom Retiring Stamps Blog Hop

Hey Stampin' Friends!!

It's finally here!! The Stampin' Addicts Retiring Stamp Sets Blog Hop!!

If you've been hopping with us, then you just came from Heidi's blog where she featured the Starburst Sayings set. And if you just started... WELCOME!! We are so glad you joined us! There are 10 stops on this hop. I'm number 10.

I chose Stippled Blossom as the retiring set that I wanted to feature. This is one set that I love but I just never inked up enough. So it is staying in my stash. :)

Since Mother's Day is only a couple of days away, I wanted to make a card and coordinating gift "bag".

Here are the details for each project:

Stamps: Stippled Blossom, And Many More (sentiment)
Paper: Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: Perfect Polka Dots EF, Wisteria Wonder Chevron Ribbon (both on "The List"), Pearl Jewels, 2 1/2" Circle Punch

All of the flowers and leaves were cut-out by hand and attached to a Whisper White circle with Dimensionals. Then the entire circle was attached to the card front with Dimensionals to give even more depth. I already sent this card to my mom. :)

Here is a close-up of the gift purse.

Stamps: Stippled Blossom
Paper: Subtles Color Collections DSP, Whisper White (for stamping)
Accessories: Petite Purse die (on "The List"), Pearl Jewels

This little purse is just too cute. It's perfect for a small gift like earrings, a charm, or of course my favorite... Chocolate!!

For my last project I created a pretty birthday card with lots of "Last Chance" items:

Stamps: Stippled Blossom, Memorable Moments (sentiment)
Paper: Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Crumb Cake
Ink: Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Label Framelits, Beautifully Baroque EF, Festive Paper Piercing Template, White Satin Ribbon, Pearl Jewels, Dimensionals

This stamp set makes such elegant, feminine cards. So sad it won't be in the catalog any more. But happy that I already own it!! If you don't have it, you should order it before it's gone!!
