Hello everybody and welcome to my first blog post as the Stand Up Stamper. If you have already visited my friend Narelle’s post I am sure you loved her design.
The theme for this month is Goodbye. Stampin’ Up will be retiring many of my favourite products at the end of May but the good news is that there are lots of beautiful new items being added to the new catalogue.
Being born and up in the UK I used to love seeing hedgehogs in the hedgerows so I was very happy to see the Hedgehugs stamp set when it was added to the catalogue and will miss it when it retires at the end of May. With this in mind I decided to make a card using the Hedgehugs stamp set and also another retiring product, the Animal Expedition DSP. One of my sisters-in-law in the UK is having health issues at the moment so I am sending her “Hedgehugs” from Australia. Thank you to Klompenstampers for inspiring me with her tutorial for a Triangle Fold Card.
Another favourite of mine that is also retiring is the All My Love DSP, as it is Mothers’ Day on Sunday in Australia I made this very pretty corner fold card to say goodbye to this very pretty DSP, many thanks to Jan Brown from JanB cards for her amazing tutorial.
Next on the blog hop is the very talented Mandy Depiazzi, I know you are going to love her design.
