Retro Sending Good Thoughts

 Monday sketch #3

This year's Occasions Catalog has had so many fun new products!  And true to form, Stampin' Up! has given us terrific coordination in its products!

  • One of the biggest hits has been the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Make your tag any length you want.  Just cut your cardstock to a smidge less than 2" wide, insert it into the punch tray and punch.
  • Sentiment comes from Perfect Pennants and is the perfect thing to say to someone!  Here I've stamped in Baked Brown Sugar ink on the tag, then stamped again on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Tangerine Tango ink, then adhered it with Dimensionals to highlight the word "good".
  • Our color scheme is set with the Retro Fresh Designer PaperBaked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, So Saffron, Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla.  I folded down the top 1/2" of the Designer Paper to reveal the other side then tacked it in place using two Candy Dot Brad Bases with So Saffron Candy Dots from the Subtles Dots.
  • The Naturals Chevron Ribbon and Coastal Cabana Stretch Trim look so pretty topping the tag.
  • I used two other punches for this card.  There's a Baked Brown Sugar cardstock Triangle Punch to the left side of the tag, and the Chevron Punch decorates the bottom of the tag with Coastal Cabana cardstock punch-outs.

You Make Me Happy

I have to admit I had just a teensy bit of panic as I began to create this card and realized that we have just a little over three months left with the 2012-14 In Colors!  I can't believe these luscious colors are close to retiring!  I don't know how I'm going to live without Summer Starfruit!  And there's nothing else like Gumball GreenMidnight Muse is so much richer than Night of Navy, and the pinks are so pretty.  And the In Color Dahlias – oh, no!  So if you haven't purchased your 2012-14 In Colors, you won't be sorry if you make the investment.  And if you own stamp pads in these amazing colors, I strongly suggest ordering ink refills for each pad so that you can use them for years to come.

  • My card shows off a couple of Sale-A-Bration items – the stamp set is See Ya Later, and I've used the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder on the Gumball Green cardstock.
  • Don't think the High Tide Designer Paper is only meant to coordinate with the nautical stamp set!  Here I've  used the pretty Summer Starfruit pattern to bring some more texture in.
  • The Adorning Accents Edgelit makes a pretty scalloped border.
  • I have to say my most favorite tool in our 2014 Occasions Catalog is definitely the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  I've already used it so much, and there are so many interesting ways to use it. 
  • The Hearts Collection Framelits will give you any size heart you need – and I added a Summer Starfruit Dahlia to it – does it look like a sun to chase away the gray skies?
  • Some pretty Primrose Petal Ribbon is tied up with White Baker's Twine to complete the top of the tag.
