So Sorry to See You Go

This stamp set, So Happy, I am so sorry to see go. It too will be retiring August 10. I have said this before about stamp sets that I dearly love, but this is one of those stamp sets that is so versatile. It has great focal images that stand alone-like this paisley. It also has a nice-sized round daisy and it has images to use to two-step stamp inside the flower or to make your own background designs including polka dots and stripes. To see the whole stamp set, check out page 114 of the Spring/Summer 2008 catalog. If you don't have one handy, go here to view it on line.

We will be soon seeing the last of this this bright Wild Wasabi green as well. The 2007/2008 In Colors will retire with our beloved stamp sets August 10 when Stampin' Up! will roll out an entire set of six new colors. If you need to stock up on any of the 2007/2008 In Color papers, inks or ribbons, do so soon. The last date to order these items will be August 10. If you have the Classic Ink pads be sure to pick up an Ink Refill for just $2.75 +ship/tax to make your ink pad last forever.

For this card, stamp the Paisley Background stamp with Wild Wasabi Classic Ink on Wild Wasabi card stock for a bright complimentary mat. The texture created by the background stamp also gives the card interest and dimension to look at. Stamp a single Paisley image using the stamp from the So Happy stamp set on Whisper White card stock and punch it out using the Small Tag punch. Easily create a layer look for your tag by punching a mat from Lovely Lilac card stock using the Tag punch. Isn't it great how Stampin' Up punches all fit together? Next, punch a hole with the Handheld 1/16 inch circle punch and insert a Silver Brad. Pop the tag up on the card with a Stampin' Dimensional and embellish with a length of Wild Wasabi Double-Stitched Ribbon.

Recipe:

Stamp Sets: So Happy, Paisley Background Stamp
Card Stock: Lovely Lilac, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Classic Inks: Lovely Lilac, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black
