Last Chance Saloon…

Morning folks – long time no see!

Sorry for the lack of posts of late, unfortunately I’ve not had much time for crafting as my energy has been focussed on finding a new job.

But, I’m back now and over the next few days I’ve got some projects from my stamp-a-stack retirement class last Saturday to share with you. The class featured products which were retiring to make way for all of the exciting stash coming in the NEW idea book and catalogue, which is released on 1st October (believe me it’s well worth the wait!! there is a link in the sidebar where you can purchase a copy now, and I’ll get it in the post to you).

Here’s the first card, which features probably my favourite paper from the current catalogue, Love Letter, it’s one that I’m going to miss. I’ve paired it with the Artistic Etchings and French Foliage stamp sets to create a vintage anniversary card. A simple colour combination of Riding Hood Red, Basic Black and Very Vanilla, aged using the distressing kit.springtime_in_paris

The sentiment is from the Level 2 hostess set Something to Celebrate and I’ve finished it with a length of the Basic Black wide striped grosgrain ribbon and a French filigree brad.

We made 6 more cards during the session, I’ll be back tomorrow with another. In the meantime I’ll be painting the front door step and 2 internal doors and trying to clean up the bombsite that is my craft room – I’ve pulled out all of my retiring goodies to make way for new stash, and they’re all over the floor!

A copy of the retiring list can be found here. If there’s something in particular that you’d like, be sure to contact me soon as many items have already sold out, including: Jolly Holiday DSP, Choo Choo & the Right on Track wheel, Antique Brass & Pewter Jumbo Eyelets, Sense of time, Star Punch, Sanded, Spiral Border Punch, Forest Friends & Christmas Jingle simply scrappin’ kit.

See you soon

  1. Beautiful card Linz. I love how you've combined the eiffel tower stamp from artistic etchings with the stamps from french foliage. They work so well together! I too love these papers, shame they are retiring!!
