Last Chance - For You Flower

This card contains some products from the Summer Mini (which are also staying in the new catalogue), but the stamp I used for the sentiment is only available until June 30th.

I stamped the For You Flower stamp with VersaMark, then sprinkled a portion of the image with Melon Mambo Stampin' Emboss powder. I shook off the excess, then sprinkled with Tangerine Tango Stampin' Emboss powder. After I shook off the excess, I sprinkled the last area with Wild Wasabi Stampin' Emboss powder. After all the coloured powders were on the image, I heated them with my Heat Tool and they blended together as they melted. I punched the flower with the co-ordinating Fancy Flower punch. I created a grid of papers (all from the Beyond the Garden DSP pack). The flower was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals on top of a cardstock piece cut with the Decorative Label punch.

Last Chance - Flowers, FYI and Bella Toile

This month I featured Last Chance products in my Stampin' Parties and classes. This card is from a workshop, and I created a very similar one for my Quickie Card Class yesterday.

It features three Last Chance stamps: Bella Toile (the background), A Flower for All Season and FYI (I love this layered sentiment look). It also features the Last Chance DSP Elegant Soiree (sold out) and the Designer Label punch (to created the very cute frame behind the Wide Oval punch). I pulled the colours for this card from the striped paper (Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake and Early Expresso) and then added some more colour to the frog and flowers.

Last Chance - Fresh Cuts!

I made some of these cards quickly to use as my June Thank You notes to include in my order bags... The Fresh Cuts Notes are 25% off, and only available until June 30th! They coordinate very nicely with the Fresh Cuts stamp set which will also be gone after June 30th. I inked it up with some Regals Stampin' Spots (Always Artichoke, Garden Green, Elegant Eggplant and Cherry Cobbler), added a Rhinestone Brad and the pretty sentiment punched out with the Modern Label punch. I added some Cherry Cobbler card stock behind the die cut opening with Dimensionals to add a little pop. Super quick and super cute (if I do say so myself)!

May Thank You Cards

This is the card I added to my May orders...

It is so quick & easy thanks to the Note Cards, and the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch. The stem, sentiment and butterfly are all from the Bold Blossoms Stamp set in the Summer Mini. I used scraps of patterned papers and card stock for the flowers and inked the edges of the stamped layer before popping it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Inks: Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait
Card stock: Whisper White, Note Cards
Other: Bold Brights Brads, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch

It's your last chance to get some of the products on your Wish List... the items on the Last Chance lists will be gone when the current catalogue ends on June 30th. Wood Mount and Clear Mount stamps will be available until midnight June 30th, but Accessories (including Stampin' Around Wheels) and Definitely Decorative products are only available as supplies last. The best way to order these items is through my online store (click the word-links to get there) because inventory is always updated and you will know that your items are in stock. Your orders through the online store will ship directly to you. Some of the Last Chance items are discounted, but the sale prices don't show until you click on the item for more details. You are also welcome to e-mail or call me with an order if there are items you need before they are gone.

This card was created mostly with Simple Friendship, one of the stamps on the Last Chance List. I embossed two of the images from the set, used the small flower to repeatedly stamp on the Wild Wasabi card stock, stamped the swirls on the right side of the card, and the butterfly on the Pumpkin Pie card stock. This set has a nice assortment of images, and some sentiments too. A great all around set...

I'm going to have lots of room for new products, because I have lots of Last Chance items sitting on my shelves here asking to get used one more time! Be sure to Save the Date for my annual Buy One, Get One Free New Catalogue Kick-Off!!! It's Sunday July 3rd (1:00pm & 7:00pm) and Monday, July 4th (1:00pm & 7:00pm). You'll get to check out the new catalogue and make projects with brand new products. For every dollar you spend on merchandise from the catalogue, you'll get Liz Bucks to spend at my retired 'store'. You can also earn Liz Bucks by bringing a new friend, booking a stamping party and signing up for a club!
