Stampin' With Friends Retiring Blog Hop


Thank you for joining us for our fond farewell to some well loved Stampin' Up! ® products. We have loved the these stamps, dies, embossing folders and colors but on May 3, 2022 it will be time to let them rest as we create and share products from the new catalog.

I am choosing to create my card using Very Versailles Stamp Set, Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, Cinnamon Cider ink and cardstock, Just Jade ink, 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems, Detailed Trio Punch and Treasured Tags Pick-A-Punch. Wow, that's a lot of retiring products! There is still time to get some of these great products, check the retiring list! 

Non-retiring products used are Early Espresso Cardstock, Very Vanilla Cardstock, and Copper Foil.

I have always liked Very Versailles for distressed cards. I stamped using two different stamps and Cinnamon Cider ink, tore one side and brushed the edges with Cinnamon cider ink using a blending brush on the edges. I ran a piece of copper foil sheet through my Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. 

The sentiment is stamped and the ends are punched with the Treasured Tags Pick-a-Punch. The piece of Cinnamon Cider is rounded with the Detailed Trio punch. 

Inside is stamped with Just Jade ink in the corners and adhered to the inside of the card.

Cardbase: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Copper Foil and Very Vanilla for the inside: 4" x 5 1/4"
Very Vanilla scrap for the front stamping: 3" x 5 1/4"
Very Vanilla scrap to fit sentiment 
Cinnamon Cider Scrap to layer sentiment
Two small pieces of Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim as accents on the Cinnamon Cider sentiment layer.

Thank you again for stopping by my blog on the hop and I hope you enjoy this card.
