Blog Hop badge May 2020

Hello, welcome to the Pals Blog Hop! This month our theme is “Goodbye to January-June Mini and 2019-2020 Annual Catalogs and Hello to 2020-2021 Annual Catalog” where the Design Team is showcasing their favorites from the retiring catalogs or products in the new catalog! You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Its always hard to say Goodbye to some well loved favorites! It helps when we can say Hello to some new beauties that will be available when the annual catalog debuts on June 3rd.

Stampin' Up! In Color fun fold birthday card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Lovely Lipstick has been one of my favorite In Colors. I paired it with another retiring favorite, the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper, for this fun fold birthday card.

I have used the Best Dressed Designer Series Papers on so many different projects! I love the floral prints! Here’s a look at some other projects I’ve made using these beautiful floral designs. (*I’ve posted the links below if you would like to view the original posts.)

The Perennial Birthday stamp set I used for the sentiments on today’s card will be retiring on June 2nd along with the beautiful Petal Pink Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Leaf Punch, Best Dressed Designer Series Paper, Lovely Lipstick cardstock and the rest of the 2018-2020 In Colors. However, when we say Goodbye to one set of In Colors, we say Hello to another! The 2020-2022 In Colors are gorgeous!!!!! Here’s another version of today’s fun fold card using the new Misty Moonlight In Color with one of my favorite new Designer Series Papers, Flowers For Every Season.

I used the new Celebrate Sunflowers for the sentiments for this one. This set has coordinating dies too! I love the celebrate sentiment as it can be used for so many different occasions. I fussy cut the DSP to add some flowers on the back of the card too.

Another Retiring Favorite… Perennial Birthday

I send a LOT of birthday cards and love having different sentiments to choose from.  One of my birthday favorites is Perennial Birthday which is retiring June 2nd. Here is a fun fold card that was part of my Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet To Go last month.

Even though I used sentiments from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set on the front and inside of this card, my kits to go are designed so you can use whatever stamp sets you already have to add a sentiment. Each month my kits to go include 3 cards and a 3D Project. I love fun fold cards so I always include one fun fold card each month. You also get the tutorials for each project so you can make more if you want.  My tutorials are a great resource of ideas. Click HERE for all the details to get in on my May kit  to go!

Here’s a look at all the great birthday sentiments in Perennial Birthday.

Even though I will no longer post ideas using this stamp set once it retires (because I don’t want to tease you with products you can no longer purchase) it doesn’t mean it will be leaving my craft room. (*Note- If you have older stamp sets, you can always search my blog for ideas by typing in the name of the stamp set in the search box on the right.)

Check back tomorrow for the Pals Blog Hop as we showcase our retiring favorites and some sneak peeks at new products from the Annual Catalog (available June 3rd). I will have another fun fold card to share with you.

Yesterday I showcased the new In Colors.  If you missed that post you can view it HERE. The lucky winner of one of my new In Color note cards is…..Bernice P. Congratulations Bernice! Email me your address and I will put your card in the mail to you!

Have a great day! Stay Safe! Stay well!
