AWH April Blog Hop: Retiring Products

Hi!



Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring products from the Last Chance Products list. There are lots of products to choose from with retiring stamp sets, inkpads and ink refills guaranteed to be available until 7 May (and all other products while supplies last). Contact anyone on the blog hop to place your last chance order today.

I've chosen to make a card using several retiring products.

The first retiring product are the Lovely Words Thinlits. They coordinate with the also retiring Lovely Inside & Out stamp set, which I haven't used today. I selected the 'friend' thinlit for my card, as it paired nicely with the inside sentiment. One of the ribbons I have used in the top corner is also retiring - the 1/8" Gold Ribbon. It's Silver twin is also retiring.

The front of the card uses a subtle crackle paper from the Colour Theory DSP Stack. Some of the leaves from the Painted Harvest stamp set were stamped directly to the DSP. Do you ever stamp on DSP? It's a great technique that often gets forgotten. I've backed the word 'friend' with some of the Wood Textures DSP, which is carrying over to the next Annual Catalogue. Yay!

The final retiring products are two of the retiring colours. I've used Chocolate Chip (sob!) as my card base, and also for the centre of the sunflowers. Peekaboo Peach is also retiring. I used it as the top, darker layer of my sunflowers, with Crushed Curry underneath.

There's always some mixed feelings at this time of year - sadness at some retiring favourites, but also excitement over the new stuff about to hit my craft desk. I think this year I'm mostly excited, as there's lots of great stuff on the way.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented, Kimberly Hern.
