So Hard to Say Goodbye - Retiring Products

Hello!  And thanks for stopping by the Craft Lounge to chill with me for a few moments today!  If you found yourself here, then you have arrived from Martinette’s blog.  
The title of the post is “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye” because we are honoring some of our favorite products that are retiring from the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up catalog.

My project for you today features the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set and the coordinating Flourish framelit set.  I love both the phrases and artwork on the stamp set and when you team it up with the delicate die cuts from the Flourishing framelits set, you have a winning combination.  My goal was to great a simply elegant card and with the sentiment popped up on the Stitched Shapes circle framelit, I think this one does the trick!

My card combines the colors a Pool Party base, Gray Granite for the floral embellishments and a layer of Whisper White for simple elegance.  The center of the flowers are embellished with Adhesive Backed Sequins in Whisper White.

Let's talk about this stamp set some more.  It has 18 stamps in it!  18!!  This huge set is s very versatile with included phrases as well as the artwork.  

This set is retiring at end of June.
