2017 Stampin'Up Favourite Retiring Product/s Blog Hop

Today I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team.  We thought it would be fun to share some projects using our favourite retiring products from both the 2016 -2017 annual and 2017 Occasions catalogue!
Select retiring products have discounts of up to 50% off but are only available until sold out. Be sure to place orders before the sun sets on these items on Wednesday 31st May.  You don't want to miss out - ask me how!

You have come from the lovely Tina Gillespie, Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one.  There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken lines.  Now let's get started!

It was hard to choose my favourite retiring products because I like them all!   I have made 2 Shaker Cards using Love You Lots stamp set using the Porcupine Stamp, the flowers are from In The Meadow Stamp set, the faux grass under the porcupines is from the Gorgeous Grunge  Stamp set and for the embellishments I used Calypso Coral Thick Twine and a metal Balloon from Party Animal range. Card stock colour is Soft Sky and Peekaboo Peach and watercolour pencils for the colouring.

For my second shaker card I used the same stamp sets this time using the ladybugs I fussy cut the ones on the bottom of the circle and used the Accorny Punch for the top, the DSP paper is from the Sending Love Paper Stack.

Your off to see the lovely Rebecca Jacovou next, happy hopping!!!
