Out With The Old - May 2015 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May where we are preparing for the retirement of some Stampin' Up! products.  Though it may be goodbye to some very loved supplies, it will make room for the much anticipated new catalog products.  We hope you enjoy the Pals' creative projects.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Lisa Pretto at Inkbig Academy Stamps! number on the Pals Hop.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

I have chosen two stamp sets that are retiring to be the focus of my card. The background stamp is called Dictionary and the sentiment and flower is from the retiring The Gift of Kindness stamp set. I am saddened to see the Hearts Framelits Die set retiring as well....i do get attached to certain Stampin' Up! goodies!!! I stamped the flower on the whisper white face card and then onto another whisper white stamped with the Dictionary background stamp. Using a die from the Hearts Framelits I cut out some of the image on the face card and aligned that with the Dictionary/flower image. underneath it. I used dimensionals to pop up the completed face front from the grey base and black layer, and added a strip of dsp along the edge to give the card some WOW factor. All tied together with marker colored pearls! 

The next stop is Nicole Watt - Pixel Maven's Retreat number on the Pals Blog Hop!  Thanks for visiting; I hope to see you on next month’s Pals Hop!

Always eager to hear your thoughts - leave me a comment if so inspired. Thanks!
