Happy Anniversary

Sonny and I had an anniversary last week (April 7).  We were lucky enough to be able to celebrate our 43 years with our friends, Margaret and Graham since they were still here.  We went to a new Irish/English pub that opened in Cornelius.  I fudged a bit on my Weight Watcher's diet and enjoyed a few fries that we ordered for an appetizer - and of course, a couple of beers with our dinner.  Luckily, those pounds didn't show up when I weighed in on Monday (I even lost a pound!)  Below is the card I made for Sonny.

I used the Pedal Pusher stamp set from Sale-a-Bration for the bicycle.  I love the little basket with the hearts coming out of it.  I used the Wink of Stella on the hearts to make them sparkle.  The "43" is from the Large Numbers framelets.  The cardstock is not Stampin' Up!.  This piece of Graphic 45 was on the top of my stash of non-SU and I thought it looked great for this card.  The sentiment says it all - we are happy together after 43 years!

Stampin' Up! will announce the RETIRING LIST tomorrow, Monday, April 18 at 1:00 MT.  I will post it here on my blog as soon as I can.  There is usually a sale on some of the items that will be retiring so be prepared to save some money!

PLEASE NOTE that the Retiring Products are only available while supplies last and some WILL SELL OUT!  Order early for the best selection.

All 2014-16 In Color Products will be on the list so if you need any ink refills, cardstock, ribbon, markers, etc. in these colors, get them ASAP!

Pedal Pusher

I have been making a lot of birthday cards lately.  This is one I made using a Sale-a-Bration stamp called Pedal Pusher.  It is a great way to use up strips of DSP that you have been accumulating.  I seem to always have lots of little strips left over!   

The Cucumber Crush card is cut at 4.25" x 10" and scored at 4.5".  The Whisper White piece is cut at 3" x 4".  Stamp the sentiment at the top (from Perfect Pairings, another Sale-a-Bration set) and the bicycle at the bottom.  I used my SU markers to color in the bicycle and the basket of flowers.  Adhere the white piece to the front of the card and layer several strips of DSP of varying widths.

Another sentiment is stamped on the side of the card so it is visible when the card is closed.

Pedal Pusher Love

It is still not too late to spend $50 with Stampin' Up and receive a free stamp set (or paper, Project Life item, washi tape, etc.).  This bicycle set is one of the new stamps for Sale-a-Bration - Pedal Pusher.  I think it is so cute and can be used for a lot of occasions.   I decided to send it to someone special.

I stamped the bike with black Memento ink and used markers to color it so it would match the Lost Lagoon card.  Oh how I am going to miss Lost Lagoon when it retires in June!  I just realized that when I took the picture of the card, I had not adhered the panel to the card.  Rest assured, I did glue it down before mailing it!  The DSP flag that is peeking out of the side and the DSP background piece are both from Sale-a-Bration also (Wildflower Fields, pg. 12).  The "love" sentiment is from a great stamp set in the annual catalog, Something to Say (pg. 108).
