Loving These Retiring Framelits! Stampin' Up!


This is one of the pretty cards we made in my workshop at Menai Library.
The women who attended really enjoyed the class, and the library staff were so helpful in helping get the word out about my workshop. 

It is foolproof stamping and perfect for the beginner stamper as long as you stamp the sentiment first, that way if you mis-stamp you can start over. When using photopolymer stamps it helps to use a Stamping' Pierce mat underneath and hold the stamp down for 3 seconds in order for the ink to be absorbed by the card stock.
One of my favourite co-ordinating retiring stamp and framelits sets is Flower Patch #134207 and #133731.They are available for a limited time.
The sentiments are so lovely, and it is great to be able to use 2 step stamping (on the leaves) in the background, then to be able to pop up layers on top (the flowers). A simple pearl or two is all that is needed to make a sophisticated card.
Happy Crafting!
