After much nagging from some of the girls on the LNS Yahoo mail list (and, thanks girls...nagging me really does work) I'm adding this card to my blog. I made this card some time back but I simply have not had time to make anything new this week. I do think this stamp set is retired. I am pretty sure the ribbon is no longer available too. But, it will at least give you a small look at some of the cards I make. I am sure I snagged this idea from somewhere but I have no idea where. It could have been from the Stamper's Showcase in the demonstrator's section of the Stampin' Up! website or it could have been from Splitcoast Stampers. If this looks familiar to you and you posted something like this card on one of those two websites please let me know so that I can give you credit! The "recipe" is below:

Stamp sets: Blossoms Abound, Weathered (background) & Close As A Memory
Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss & Very Vanilla
Ink: Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum & Basic Black
Embellishments: the purple colored gingham ribbon that is no longer available

I will try to post only images that use "current" stamp sets and colors but for now this was all I had available. Plus, I have some favorite stamp sets that are retired but I just can't keep myself from using them!!!


  1. Hey Girl....Beautiful card. I dont always post current. Like you there is too many nice sets that i cant do without. Looking forward to your creations!

    OH, and don't worry about using ONLY current stuff, I DON'T!!!!!!! I just use what my creative MOJO tells me to! That keeps me on a more creative-flow!! Go where your heart leads you!

  3. Susan,
    That is a very pretty card. Thank you for sharing. I too was worried about using only "current stuff" but there is too much that I like that is retired.
    Glad to have you in the group!

  5. LOOOOOOVVVVEEE IT! This is an awesome card. Who cares if it's retired. If they are all like this I can't wait to see the rest!


I'd SO love to hear your comments on my projects! Tell me if you like it, don't like it or what you think I should do to make it better!
