What more do you need really when you make a card? Some pretty paper and a sentiment.
The paper from the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper with lots of fluttering dragonflies makes for a very quick card. I added some strips of the striped paper behind it for added contrast. Just use strips too. Don’t use a whole piece of the paper behind it as it is wasted.
I added some loops of the Midnight Muse Twine behind the sentiment with a small punched Bumblebee dragonfly.
The Dandy Garden paper is retiring and leaving VERY SOON. It is reduced too. 🙂

I love the sweet Under My Umbrella stamp set and the matching Umbrella Builder Punch. I’m sad that it is leaving. I really haven’t used it enough.
For our retiring class last week we used the Under My Umbrella for one of our cards. I think it was a popular card among the ones we made.
This card was inspired by a card by Mena Green from personally4u.blogspot.com that I found on Pinterest. I changed it up quite a bit.
I used the retiring 3D Lace Embossing Folder for the card mat underneath. The umbrellas were stamped on pieces of pretty Paper. You could use any but I ended up with the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper and the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper. They can be punched with the matching Umbrella Punch.
I have to say when I was making this card I had lots of umbrellas punched from all different patterns of paper. It was a fun process but to be honest I really didn’t have time for that. 🙂
Here is a couple of other cards I have made using this stamp and bundle set.
If you want to order this yourself I have to say I just noticed the Umbrella Builder Punch is no longer available.
The Under My Umbrella Stamp set is still available. See it -> HERE in my store.
The 3D Lace Embossing Folder can be found in my store -> HERE. And get this it is reduced to $4.38. That is 75% off!!! Can you believe that??

It’s Friday which means it’s video time with Friday Flicks. I couldn’t help but use the gorgeous To A Wild Rose bundle. I am so sad this is retiring. I love the layering you can achieve with the stamps and having the dies to match to get your different flowery effects.
This is today’s card.

It’s come to that time when we start saying Good-Bye to our favourites. The Retiring List is now out. It’s your Last Chance to get them.
I have all the details below. I know I’m sad to be saying Good-Bye to some. But it makes space for other great products to come.
**Firstly, when you check the list don’t be alarmed at the size of it. Some items are being reconfigured such as the stamp set cases. New sets will now come with a printed image on the outside as well as the inside back cover and the stamp sets won’t have images on the clear sheets the stamps are stuck to.
** Some bundles as in stamps/dies or stamps/punches are listed as retiring but only as a bundle. They may still be available individually in the next catalogue but buying them now as a bundle saves 10%.
See them all in my Store to see all the items shown -> HERE.
These items are all WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. So be quick! Some have sold out already.
