The retiring list is out for the Annual catalogue and Occasions catalogue which both end on 31st May. So over the next few week I will make cards featuring some of the retiring products. Some of the retiring products are already sold out so don't waste time if you would like to grab a bargain as some of the products are at discounted prices. Check out the retiring list here. Let me know if you would like to place an order.
Most of the products on this card are retiring. It's sad to see some of my favourite products going, but of course they have to make way for lots of new exciting products in the new catalogue.
The 2015-2017 In Colours are retiring which includes Watermelon Wonder card (#138341) which I used for the base card. Also the Watermelon Wonder ink (#138323) which was used for the butterflies, flowers and sentiment. The flowers and small butterfly were stamped using the stamping off method to give a lighter colour. The flowers are from the Petite Petals stamp set (#c133155,#w133152) and the butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set (#c123759, #w132058). Happy birthday is from the Circle of Spring stamp set (#p138964) and this was cut with the Tags & Labels Framelits (#138282). I added the Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247) to the flowers and butterfies. The background was stamped using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (#130514) with Mint Macaron ink (#138326) and Cucumber Crush ink (#138324). All these products are retiring. The card front is Very Vanilla (#106550) and the flowers, butterflies and the sentiment were all attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The Very Vanilla card and Dimensionals are NOT retiring.
I hope you are all having a great Easter weekend.
