Stamping Dreams Blog Hop – Retiring

Welcome to the first Stamping Dreams Blog Hop!

We are a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

I’m Sara Levin from the United States, thank you for visiting!

Today, we are bidding a fond farewell to retiring products.

My focus  is on the Here’s to Cheers bundle.

Here’s to Cheers Graduation Card

I’ve combined retiring with incoming product

for my Here’s to Cheers graduation card.

For the card base, I’ve used Tranquil Tide – one of the new In Colors.

Over that are panels of Pop of Pink specialty designer paper

and Eastern Palace specialty designer paper.

I tied them together with a strip of 1/4″ Gold Natural Trim.

Tip: Tear and Tape is the perfect width to use as the adhesive for the Natural Trim.

Looking in closer, you can see the filigree piece cut from Gold Foil Paper.

I used one of the dies from the Cheerful Tags Thinlits.

Over that is a Whisper White circle cut with one of the Layering Circle Framelits.

Using a sentiment from Here’s to Cheers, I stamped in Tranquil Tide.

Once the circle was added with a Dimensional, I accented it with a gold star from the Metallics Sequin Assortment.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Here’s to Cheers Graduation card.
