Happy Tuesday y'all or is it! The retirement list comes out today! Of course, I have absolutely no patience & heard from a group that international had their list, so I had to peek even though someone said it wasn't the same. I'm really hoping it isn't the same because I see a lot of sets leaving my table. I did however take a set from their list that I have & make today's card, assuming that it will be on the list when I wake up to see the US list.
I realized that I've gravitated to 4 of the 5 outgoing In Colors, Strawberry Slush really hasn't been touched unless I've happened to use it at Kerri's, which I'm thinking I have done. This being about the only thing I know for sure that will be gone with the catalog I thought I would do some cards with these colors.
So upon gazing at the retired list, I saw that in the AU market that Love & Sympathy was retiring. It took me awhile to actually get this set as I couldn't get past the sympathy part of the set (the cards I hate making the most & probably you do too!) I so love the flower in this set, so after a bit I decided it was time to get it & I've made quite a few cards with it since.
For the base of this card I used the retiring Pistachio Pudding Card Stock. The next layer consisted of Whisper White Card Stock, which I added a small piece of Strawberry Slush DSP to, then topped it off with the retired Strawberry Slush Stretch Ruffle Trim. The flower from Love & Sympathy I used the Strawberry Slush & Pistachio Pudding Marvelous Markers to color the stamp & stamped it onto the Whisper White. The sentiment comes from the Crazy About You Stamp Set & was stamped in Strawberry Slush Ink.
All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
