Art With Heart Blog Hop Retiring List

Art With Heart Blog Hop Retiring List

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 catalogues!

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 31 May. You don’t want to miss out – ask me how!

Such an incredibly versatile product

My beautiful sister-in-law recently turned 50 and instead of a party she decided to take a well-deserved holiday to Thailand. So when we finally caught up over the Easter break it was the first time I’d seen her since her birthday and I wanted to make her something personal to mark the occasion.

For this scrapbooked wall art I used several of my all-time favourite retiring products. Botanical Builder Framelits are the most versatile Stampin’ Up! product I have ever used. It is actually impossible to make a bad card with this set! If you don’t already own them, now’s your last chance to buy them…and they’re on special! They work with any colour card stock and are just so incredibly beautiful, easy to use and versatile.


I’ve used the matching  Botanical Blooms polymer stamp set (also so versatile and on sale) and my favourite retiring in-colour: Tip Top Taupe.

This is such a great neutral…don’t you love it here with the whisper white and tip top taupe ink stamped on it?

The lovely blue ink is Marina Mist – I’ve only recently purchased this colour and it’s truely love at first sight.

Other gorgeous retiring products I’ve used here are the Love & Affection stamp set (stamped in Tip Top Taupe) and the 2016-2018 In Colour Enamel Shapes (in Dapper Denim).

For the matching card and envelope I used the retiring Crumb Cake Note Cards & Envelopes stamped with stamps from the retiring Love & Affection stamp set (another favourite!) in retiring Tip Top Taupe and the ever lovely Whisper White. I embellished the little flower stamp with the retiring Gold Glitz Dazzling Details.

Luckily the linen thread and the sentiment (on the wall art and on the card) from Beautiful You are not retiring. Boy am I going to miss all these retiring products!


Now it’s time to see what the talented Ros Davidson has made.
