Hello crafting friends,
Yes! Oh, Hello!! indeed... where have I been? I am still creating but I have been having some "photography skills issue" :) We keep learning new things every day, don't we?
Today I'm sharing cards that I made with the Oh, Hello stamp set from the Spring Catalog that will end its life on May 31, 2013.
Stampin' Up! is also having its "Retirement Party" - saying good bye to all the stamp sets and the accessories that are retiring.
Designer Series Paper Patio Party that I am using on both projects today are retiring, so if you like it, make sure you get it in time before it is gone.
The interesting part of this paper is that the background paper from both projects come from the same sheet of patterned paper. One side is for the Oh, Hello card (those paper lanterns) and the back side is for the Congratulations card. Pretty neat, huh? I think they are both so pretty.
The top of the Congratulations card is using the new Details Delicate Lace Tape, also on the Spring catalog. So pretty and so wow. The neat thing about this Lace Tape is that it is repositionable. So if you find that you are not happy with its placement, you can quickly adjust it without ruining your creation. Love!
