Retiring In Color Sweet Sugarplum

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Online Classes

Hey Stampers! We've had several pleasant days of weather so I am hoping Spring has finally made its way into North Texas! I'm sure we will have some more rain and maybe even thunderstorms before April ends, but I'm still thinking spring projects. Today's project share features Retiring In Color Sweet Sugarplum Classic Ink.  Instructions, including all products used and measurements can be found  at the end of this post.

Retiring In Color Sweet Sugarplum

If you missed my earlier post on exactly what is retiring, you can catch up here. At my stamp club last night all the ladies ordered packs (at least one!) of the Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper, which is  also retiring. Here are the cards we made. In case you didn't know, I also do an online stamp club. If you order at least $40 in merchandise from my online store using HOSTESS CODE VAGY4PBW by April 15, I'll send you free kits to make all three cards!  No stamped images but all other consumables, including envelopes will come in your kit. You may order any products you wish, just be sure to put in the hostess code prior to checkout!

  6. Punch a 1 ¾” circle out of your scrap Whisper White card stock. Stamp the sentiment using Rich Razzleberry ink. Then attach it to a 2” Rich Razzleberry circle.
  7. Attach your circle layer to your card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Now attach your white layer to your Crumb Cake layer then on to your Melon Mambo card front.
