Lately, I have been focusing on products that are retiring so if you like them you can purchase them before they retire. Now, so many products are already gone, I decided I needed to focus on products that are carrying over and still available. Even though you will be able to purchase these items, you may not get the same price once the new catalog starts. If a bundle carries over, you will not get the 10% discount for purchasing them together. Stampin’ Up! only offers the discount the first time a bundle is in the catalog. If they carry over, the bundle discounts disappear.
Sweet Citrus is one of those bundles that lose the discount. It includes the stamp set, the coordinating dies and an embossing folder. By the way, I love that Stampin’ Up! is no longer naming the stamp set one thing and the dies or embossing folder another name. It certainly makes it a lot easier to remember all the names.
Sweet Citrus is a two-step stamp set where it takes two or more stamps to make an image. In this case, the rinds are one stamp and the inside is another. The nice thing is both of them stamp all three images at once. Then the coordinating die cuts them apart. I stamped both of them in Daffodil Delight ink before cutting them out. Next, I stamped the leaves three times in Garden Green ink and cut them out using the die.
I cut out a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ piece of Garden Green card stock and a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper. This paper will be retiring on May 1st. As of this writing, it is still available but things change quickly so I apologize if it is gone already. Next, I cut a piece of Garden Green and Basic White card stock using the Deckled Rectangles dies. I layered everything onto a Basic White card base. I layered the leaves and the lemons on top. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Garden Green ink.
This is so pretty, Susan! I love the Daffodil Delight and Garden Green combination! You always use the perfect layout, colors, and placement to make your cards stand out.
