Saying Goodbye...to more Stampin' Up! Last Chance products

For today's card, I stamped the flower images three times and hand cut the layers and added dimensionals between each layer.  This is where you need a good pair of scissors.  I use the Stampin' Up! Paper Snips whenever I'm cutting intricate paper images.  This card uses the Fabulous Florets stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalog, and one of the sentiments from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set. 

This card shows one of my favorite styles.  Simple layers.  It goes together quickly, yet it is a card you can be proud to give a family member or a professional acquaintance.  I'm including it in the Signature Style Pals Paper Arts Challenge PPA97 weekly contest.

Here is a closer look at the flower layers.  I added a layer of Dimensionals between each of the three layers.

Here's what I used.

Stamps:  Fabulous Florets (Summer Mini), Fabulous Phrases
Paper:  Whisper White
Ink:  Black Staz-on
Accessories:  Large Oval punch, Oval punch, Mat pack, paper-piercing tool, dimensionals, Paper Snips

One of the things I love about Stampin' Up! products are the variety of punches offered.  I'm a fan of layers.  I love to layer sentiments and images.  Stampin' Up! makes it easy because of the many different size punches that layer together.  However, to make room for "new", sometimes you need to push out the old.

One punch on the Last Chance list retiring at the end of June, is the 1-3/8 X 5/8" Oval Punch -- the smallest of the Oval Punches.  I've used it for the sentiment on this card.  However, supplies are already depleted for this accessory on the Last Chance list. The good news is that  a new, more elongated oval punch was introduced in last year's Stampin' Up Idea book and catalog and is available for purchase now. 
Here's where you can see the new small oval punch; available now.

A last reminder, Say Goodbye -- to 5/8" grosgrain ribbonsIf you love our 5/8" grosgrain ribbons, you'll want to stock up before they are gone.  You won't find them in the new catalog.  Although there will be plenty of existing ribbons and several exciting, new ribbon styles in the new catalog, I'll miss these ribbons.  Check the Last-Chance Accessories list for all ribbons.
