Stampin' Up! New At SU Blog Hop

 Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today,  we are showcasing retiring products from the 2019 - 2020 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog.

It's never easy to say good-bye, but knowing that in a few weeks Stampin' Up! will be debuting a new annual catalog full of brand new goodies makes it so much easier. I'm featuring several of my favorite retiring products.  I love the Bird Ballad Designers Paper (DSP)  and the stamp set it coordinates with the Free as a Bird set. I am happy the stamp set is not retiring but I am going to miss this paper. I always buy a few extra packs of my favorite retiring DSP. I used the DSP on the card and to line the envelope.

 I used the Hold onto Hope Stamp set, the coordinating Cross of Hope dies and the Stitched Labels dies for the card. For the envelope, I used the Beautiful Layers dies to die cut the envelope liner from the DSP. I love to line my envelopes. I think it gives the extra special touch. 

I cut the standard A2 size side fold card base and I fold the front back and scored it to give it a crisp edge. I adhered a piece of DSP to the flap and a 5 1/4 by 4-inch piece to the inside.

I stamped the solid cross image with Coastal Cabana Classic Stampin' Ink and layer a cross that I die cut from silver foil paper on top of it. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope that my cards will inspire you to take a look at all the fabulous products Stampin' Up!  has to offer and to do something creative today.
