More alternatives for March Paper Pumpkin

I have been really bad about writing my blog posts on a regular basis.  No excuse!  I have good intentions and even (usually) know what I want to blog about but life gets in my way OR I get just lazy and another day slips away with no posts.  Hope you are not giving up on me though!

I hope you enjoyed my video about the March Paper Pumpkin.  I am anxiously awaiting the April one - it should be here in a few days.  Before I put away my March kit though, I decided to make a few more cards using the pieces in the kit (and I still have more!)

This card uses the single flower stamp, Bloom for You.  I have a suspicion that this stamp will be on the retired list next week along with the "hello friend" stamp from Six Sided Sampler.

For this card, I cut up one of the floral envelopes and used my Wink of Stella on the balloons and Lost Lagoon square piece.  Love the shine!

This one was a fun card to make!  I used the Tree Punch for the party hat and the Balloon Punch for the balloons that are colored with the clear Wink of Stella.  The rest is just lots of layers - crumb cake, Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay and white.

I mentioned above about the retiring list.  Well, on April 18th, Stampin' Up! is going to publish the list of products that will be retiring from the catalog at the end of May.  These products may be from the 2015-16 Annual Catalog and/or from the 2016 Occasions catalog. There will be some products that you know will be on the list - the 2014-15 In Colors and all products related to them; Designer Series Paper (rarely does it carry over); the cute Ronald McDonald House set, Sprinkles of Life (and probably the coordinating punch).  All of these items will go fast so if you have them on your list, you might want to go ahead and order them now.  Please use my Hostess Code when prompted - P2MX7S76.  So check out the list when it is posted on Monday so you can grab your favorite products before they go away.
