This seems like the busiest time of the year personally and at Stampin’ Up®. The retirement list for the July – December Mini Catalog came out and so many products are retiring. Some of the retiring products are on sale! It is also the time where Demonstrators are getting ready for the 2023 January – May Mini Catalog and the 2023 Sale-a-bration Catalog to begin on January 5th. Demonstrators are allowed to purchase items from these catalogs beginning December 1st. Plus, there is always the 2022 – 2023 Annual Catalog which is full of fun products!
One of the suites that is retiring is called Splendid Day. This suite includes the stamp set called Splendid Thoughts, Coordinating dies Called Splendid Stems, Splendid Day Designer Series Paper, Soft Sea Foam Seam Binding Ribbon and Open Leaf Trinkets. It is one of my favorite suites in the July – December Mini Catalog.
To make this card, I first stamped the leaves, bees and the sentiment on Sahara Sand card stock. Then I ran it through my Cut & Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and then, once again to cut the images out using the coordinating dies.
Next, I cut the open leaf from Soft Suede card stock. I layered all these pieces on a 3″ x 4.25″ piece of the Splendid Day Designer Series Paper. This paper is just gorgeous. On one side the papers are shiny and metallic and on the other side is regular paper with designs. I layered this on a piece of Soft Suede card stock. Then I took another sheet of the DSP (a non-shiny side) and layered that onto another piece of Soft Suede card stock. It is hard to see in the photo but it has a very light white design on it. I layered all of this on a Sahara Sand card base.
