May is such an exciting month in the SU! world. I have been a demo for nearly 3.5 years and every year it is the same thing...they announce the list and all you want to do is read it. Then you read it again. And you read it a third time just to make sure you didn't miss anything. The truth is, the shock doesn't necessarily sink in right away. Losing some of those stamp sets is like losing a first born (ok not really) but seriously...I have had some of those sets since the beginning. They are my best tool. They are the old reliables and letting go is hard. That being said, I am ALL for new stamps and accessories too. So I embraced the reality and counted up my losses and all tolled I think I lost not more than about 40 stamp sets. Some I will keep, others will be flying out the door.
So that leaves me back to my title...I decided to make another window card using my all time FAV SU! set...Petal Prints. Petal Prints and I met in the summer of 04. It was love at first sight. We were together ALL summer and then SU! released the holiday mini. Petal Prints and I shared some good times here but waited anxiously for news that Petal Prints avoided the chopping block. Alas, we were reunited in the summer of 05 and even though I don't Petal Prints all the time, it is truly my fav set of all time. So now I say Thank You to an old friend!
Thank You Petal Prints Card Recipe
Paper: Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, Window Sheet, Spring Showers DP
Ink: Basic Black, Jet Black Staz On
Stamp Set(s): Petal Prints, Wonderful Words
Accessories: Slit Punch, 1/4 inch Circle Punch, 1 3/8 inch Square Punch, Scalloped Square Punch (Marvy), White Grosgrain Ribbon
It was so fun to recreate the "Fancy Pants Designs" packaging along the spine of the card. So simple to do using the punches too.
Because I love to stamp and you do too!
P.S. There was a delay posting the blog candy. I didn't get a photo taken before I left town for the night so it should be up this evening (most likely late on the PST).
