Stampin'Up! Trip to Hawaii

Just got back from the Stampin'Up! incentive trip to Hawaii.  Below is one of the excursions that we took on a catamarand for some scuba diving. My son, Shawn, and my granddaughters (Olivia, Giselle, and Isabella) really had a blast with the diving---they were in a bed of sea turtles with a school of black fish zipping about them. They saw many turtles but it is illegal to touch them--but I think that was ok with most of the swimmers. After the diving we took a long sale--it was a gorgeous day...we could have just kept going and going!

Here are some pics! Enjoy!

Stampin'Up! Retiring Products - Walk in the Wild

Ever want to walk in the wild? Well, you might see this big creature if you do so!

Walk in the wild

Stampin'Up! is retiring this awesome stamp set, Walk in the Wild.  I received this card in a swap several months ago and when I saw the retiring list, I immediately thought I'd share this with you.

 The card was created by D. Hessenaur--sorry about the copyright indicating it was created by me--it was NOT! I have to attribute the images as copyrighted by Stampin'Up!

Here are the products you'll need to recreate this. (You can use your markers, sponges and inks to do the coloring the way you like it)! Order your supplies now while they are still available.

Stampin'Up! Retiring - Too Kind

This pretty little number is actually quite easy--just a matter of layering the cardstock to give it some depth. The scalloped border (Scalloped edge punch is retiring) gives it some extra interest. The Too Kind stamp set is a 2-step stamp set using Blushing Bride and Cherry Cobbler inks (with matching cardstock). It's all topped off with a Bitty Butterfly punched from Gold Glimmer cardstock.

Too Kind

Here's the supplies you will need to create this card. Order now while these items are still available!

Stampin'Up! Moon Lake

Here's a quick and easy peaceful card created with the Stampin'Up! Moon Lake stamp set in the Occasions mini catalog (did you know that the Occasions mini will be retiring June 2dn and this stamp set will not be available after that date).

Moon lake 2

To make this card take a piece of copy paper and  place it over the top half of a piece of Whisper White cardstock (4 X 5 1/4). Using a dauber, apply Pool Party ink heavily near the copy paper edge and fade out as you reach the bottom. Place the copy paper at the same position except cover the bottom part of the white cardstock and apply Pool Party lightly to create the sky.

Stamp the duck image in Jet Black Stazon ink and color using the Stampin'Write Markers (I used Garden Green, Crumb Cake, and Cajun Craze.) Stamp Birthday Wishes (Four You stamp set) near the lower edge.

Adhere the completed White cardstock to the card base (Island Indigo 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, scored on the long side at 4 1/4).

Here are the supplies you need to order to create this card. Hit the Shop Now button to order.

Don't forget, this mini catalog retires June 2nd and this stamp set (Moon Lake) will no longer be available, so, order now!
