Retiring for Fabulous Friday

Welcome to this week's Fabulous Friday post! The Sisters in Stamping are using their favorite retiring stamp sets this week, one last good-bye. Here is my card for this week--

It's pretty simple! I really like the pink and the gray together, so classy. The stamp set is called Baroque Motifs and it has been around for awhile I guess it's ready to go, but it's always sad to see a Classic like this one leave the catalog.

I also used one of the retiring stamp sets on the inside (Full of Life) along with one of the elements from the Baroque Motifs set-- I stamped it off first tho so I could used the same ink color. It dressed this pretty Wedding card up nicely I think.

Next week the Sisters are having a little preview of the new 2012-13 Idea Book & Catalog so make sure you swing on back next Friday.

Thank-you as always for stopping by today!

A Power Tie for Dad

Hello- I've been sitting the last couple of week out from the Sisters in Stamping, but I'm back this week with a super fun Father's Day card for your viewing pleasure--

The card base is 11x 4 1/4 (the card stock is cut the long way) and then scored at 5", 5 1/2" and 6". Cut in one inch on both sides of the 5" and 6" score mark (this makes the collar of your shirt). I used the mini silver brads on the collar and a pearl for the tie tack, some Poppy Parade  Designer Series Paper to make Dad a tie and a pocket scarf. The pocket was punched with the small tag punch (which is retiring in a couple of weeks) and attached with dimensionals. One of my downline (Dawn?) traded this fun folded card a couple of years ago... I have wanted to try my hand at it for quite some time now.

Thank-you for stopping by today, I will be back next week with another fun post!

Happy Stamping!
