Super Simple Note Card today using the Oh, Hello set from the Retiring Stamp Sets list.
I stamped the large oval chevron image in Calypso Coral and paper pierced around it with our Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack. The "thanks image is from another retiring set called Thanks & Hello and after I stamped the greeting, I cut it out with one of the banners in the Bitty Banners Framelits set. Added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and DONE!! Less than 10 minutes for sure.

Looks like my blog is still online, fingers crossed that it stays that way. Thanks so much for hanging in there with me. I have been really stressed out and frustrated this past week but I am hopeful that the worst is behind me. :-) _________________________________________________________________________________
This card is from my Technique Geeks Class last month. We learned how to color our Silver Glimmer Paper. This paper is on the retiring accessories list as an item that will be reconfigured in the next catalog.
Not exactly sure what that means so if you like the Glimmer Paper the way it is now, get some!! We took a square of the Silver Glimmer Paper and used a Sponge Dauber (also being reconfigured) and the Raspberry Ripple Ink Pad to color it and then used the Pansy Punch and Petite Petals Punch to crop the flowers....so easy!
I added a few leaf sprigs from the Owl Builder Punch behind the flowers and attached them to a piece of Pink Pirouette card stock cropped with the Extra Large Oval Punch. Pearls were added to the flower middles.
Here is a close up of the colored glimmer paper flowers:
In the above sample, I added some Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon around the middle of the card. For the one below, I used the Primrose Petals ribbon. Not sure which one I like better, I would love you to comment below and let me know your favorite.

I used the Blessed Easter single stamp from the Occasions Catalog to make this card. I colored the tulips with my Many Marvelous Markers set and the 2013-2015 In Color Stampin' Write Markers. ________________________________________________________________________
You can save $10 by ordering your Many Marvelous Markers set this week with FREE Shipping! It also comes with the carrying case that will also hold both of In Color Markers sets. _________________________________________________________________________
After coloring the tulips, I added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with our 2-Way Glue Pen. The Wisteria Wonder panels were run through the Big Shot Machine with the Scallops Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
I also added a fun accent to the left edge of my focal point using my Fringe Scissors and our Silver Stampin' Glitter.
The panels started as a single piece measuring 3-3/4 x 5. Run it through the Big Shot with the Scallops Folder. Slide the piece into your Stampin' Trimmer with the short side at the top, cutting it in half at 1-7/8". Remove these two pieces and place each one back in the trimmer one at a time and cut at 1-1/2" .

My first project uses the Rev Up the Fun stamp set. I sent these cards to some very special young men, hope they like them. :-)
I ran a quarter sheet of Basic Black card stock through the Big Shot with the Arrows Folder and cut it on the diagonal with my Stampin' Trimmer. This gave me two pieces so I could make two cards.
I added some Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon to create a pennant and placed a Candy Dot on a Candy Dots Brad Base for some added interest.
Supplies: Rev Up the Fun, Jet Black StazOn, Real Red, Smoky Slate and Basic Black Card Stock, Smoky Slate 3/4" Chevron Ribbon, Brights Candy Dots, Candy Dots Brad Bases, Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Stampin' Trimmer
My second project uses the Lovely As a Tree stamp set. This set has been around forever and every year I wonder if it will retire. Check back here on Monday to see the retiring stamp set list to find out if it does.
To ink the tree, tap it onto the Old Olive Pad. Whie it is still wet, use an Early Espresso Marker to color over the trunk and the branches. Huff on your stamp and press it onto the Naturals Ivory card stock.
I also used the Vintage Trinkets and added a small safety pin with a knot of our 7/16" Natural Trim for a bit of interest. This card wuld be perfect for a man or a woman.
Supplies: Loving Thoughts, Lovely As a Tree stamp sets, Naturals Ivory, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Early Eapresso card stock, Old Olive Classic Ink, Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Vintage Trinkets, 7/16" Natural Trim, Stampin' Trimmer

This is a fun card that was included in one of my Be a Big Shot at Home Classes. I will offer this class again starting in May.

The letters were cut from Coaster Board and one of the patterns included in the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper Pack. I glued a strip of the DSP to a piece of the Coaster Board and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die set to cut the letters.
I mounted the letters on a piece of Pistachio Pudding card stock that was emobssed with the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder. My accent color is Raspberry Ripple and I used the Creative Elements stamp set for the flourish in the corner.
Raspberry Ripple is one of our retiring In Colors this year so if you need it, order it today.
