No I am not retiring, but some Stampin’ Up! products are retiring. So you need to check them out. On second thought check them twice so you don’t miss anything. I will give you the link so you can print it, but before you it preoccupied. I have a card to show you and yes this stamp is retiring. You can still get in the Occasions catalog till May 31st. I just love the rocking horse. So in honor of my new grandson due this summer…here is a baby card.
Before we get to the card, I want to tell you the wonderful time I had in Minneapolis with OnStage. I was a Display Stamper. Here is a picture of my display.

I learned a lot of great ideas I will sharing over the next few weeks. Also, I met a lot of great Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators and swap cards with them. I will be showing these periodically on my blog. However, the most exciting thing was getting the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. I want you think about joining Stampin’ Up! as a Demonstrator so you can join me in November. It will be sooner than we think.
Tips and Tricks
Color: I used gray and brown with just a touch of color in Flirty Flamingo. So this card will be perfect whether it is a boy or girl.
Stamp Set: Little Cutties as so many cute little friends for different occasions. If you have an animal lover, you don’t want to miss this retiring stamp set.
- Little Cuties
Ink: What color do you think of for a horse? Brown, black, gray. I chose gray because I wanted to keep it light.
- Smoky Slate
- Early Espresso
- Flirty Flamingo
- Tempting Turquiose
Paper: Tie your card together with your colors.
- Flirty Flamingo
- Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Find a color in your pattern Designer Paper and tie together. With the browns it is fairly easy. The dotted is from the Neutrals, but the pattern behind is a retired piece that I liked the looks of with the horse.
