Saying Goodbye To Some Favorites- Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Miss You Card

Hello friends and welcome to another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. I’m so glad you’re here!

This week is our “Open” project so I decided to pair the Helping Me Grow stamp set with some of my favorite retiring products.

The Sparkle and Shine stamp set, which has these darling raindrops, is perfect for baby showers, spring cards, or a miss you card like mine. I embossed them in clear and watercolored in Marina Mist over the top. The Miss You stamp is also from that great set.

Next comes my hardest goodbye. EVER. The Typeset dsp. Isn’t it pretty in the lid of the jar?

And what about the seam binding ribbon? I’m really going to miss it’s gorgeous texture!

Another favorite is the Cherry On Top washi tape. The yellow, along with more Typeset dsp, helps to make the inside of my card more special.

The Shine On dsp and the tea lace doilies are another sad goodbye. If you love creating boxes and other 3D projects, the Shine On dsp is perfect because it is thicker and holds up beautifully.

Miss You Set

So there you have it. A sentimental little miss you gift set full of products I’m going to miss. If any of these are on your list of favorites, you better scoop them up quick, before they are gone for good! (I just checked and everything is still available.)
