Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday!
Now don’t get too excited, but one of my goals for May is to try to have not one but TWO blog posts/videos per week up for you guys! I’ve really been missing my crafting so I am trying to make it more of a priority to get into my craft room & get some projects made.
Today I made a Mother’s Day card and I have a process video to go along with it.
I ended up using quite a few Stampin’ UP items that will be retiring at the beginning of June when the new catalog comes out.
Here’s a list of the products I used that will be retiring:
- Coastal Cabana Twine
- Coastal Cabana Ink Pad
- Coastal Cabana Card Stock
- Strawberry Slush Ink Pad
- Strawberry Slush Twine
- Strawberry Slush Card Stock
- Scallop Edge Border Punch
I am really bummed that these In Colors from 2013-2015 are retiring. I absolutely LOVE the two I used on my card today: Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush. With my obsession with all things pink and aqua, these two colors are right up my alley. I hope the new In Colors coming out are just as gorgeous.
Anyhoo, I think this is the first card I have made since having Olivia. I don’t think it has really been that long, but I felt a little rusty! I really need to get crafting more often lol.
All in all, I am really happy with how this card turned out. I really love the chunky twine bow at the top. I really hope that Stampin’ UP does this chunky twine in more colors. The current colors will be retiring.
