Hey there! Happy Early Mother's Day to the moms of all kinds out there! The Stampin' Up! Retirement list came out this past week! There was a lot that surprised me and some not so much! Needless to say I resisted all temptations to purchase anything! Taryn, my 5 year old daughter and also the youngest got registered for kindergarten on Friday. It really is bittersweet! Maybe once she is in school I can become the card making giant that my CYCI Design Team leader is...
So as an homage to the retired items on the list this week I decided to create an entire card with mainly "Vintage" Stampin' Up! goodies... I will say that there was still some current stuff... But for the most part it was vintage.
I started my Tri Shutter card with a base of Soft Suede Card stock. The mattes used are in Pool Party, So Saffron and Brushed Gold Card Stock. The DSP I used is called Attic Boutique. I wish I bought this in a hoarding amount!! However, I received it in a lot I purchased on Facebook.
The first panel was stamped with "Happy Mother's Day" from the stamp set Wonderful Mother (Vintage) in Versamark and heat embossed in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. I accented this with Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon (Vintage), then added some cute little Vanilla Roses from Adorning Accents (Vintage). The center panel was stamped in the lovely vine pattern from Creative Elements (Vintage) in Soft Sky. I then stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder the sentiment from Wonderful Mother. My last little panel was made heat embossing "To A Wonderful Mother" and finished off with another Vanilla Rose.
I didn't feel like I had done enough so below I used the NEW Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to make a little gift bag of sorts. I heat embossed the sentiment in Gold Stampin' Emboss powder and thin embellished the bag with a Very Vanilla Flower, with a little Pretty in Pink and Crocheted Ribbon sash! What mother wouldn't want this little cutie!?
I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!! Thank You for stopping by and don't forget to enter your Mother's Day Creations on Can You Case It? this week!!!
