Some Last Goodbyes

Hi!

One last double post with cards made with retiring products!

My first card today is a CASE of this card by Karina Chin. There are a few differences - I used a different colour card base and top panel, and I left off the scalloped circle layer. I also placed my sentiment in a different spot. I also used a greater range of colours from the Naturally Eclectic DSP to colour my butterflies.

I love how the butterflies looks if they are in motion - they really give life to the card. Fussy cutting and popping some of them up on Dimensionals really adds to the look.

Can you see that I stamped them again on the inside, in Soft Sky ink so that they are a lovely, subtle background for the sentiment?

My second card is also a CASE, this time it's one of the cards in this post by Kate Morgan. I changed the proportions of the Petal Garden DSP pieces a little, used a different ribbon and made my sentiment panel a little fancier. Oh, and I used a different base card colour.

The flower is from the Better Together stamp set. Would you believe it's the only rose stamp I own? I coloured it with my Calypso Coral and Old Olive Blends. Did you know that the Doilies are retiring? They are being replaced by a gorgeous pearlised doily, which is so pretty!

I used a couple of off cuts to finish off the inside. The DSP comes in a 6x6 inch stack, so I seem to end up with lots of little strips of DSP. The best way to use them is on the inside!

Bye for now,

Tina
