I am still playing around with the One Flap Easel card that I shared on the last Fun Fold Friday post.  I was preparing a shoebox project to take to a Stampin' Up! demonstrator get toegether and wanted to use a stamp set that did not require any coloring and the Serene Silhouettes set  worked perfectly.

Next thing I want to try is  a photo instead of a stamped image in the easel.  Wouldn't that be cute?   Here's the link  to the tutorial.

Have you checked the Retiring Accesories and Stamp Set lists?  You really need to especially the Accesories.    The Accesories are going fast and are only available while supplies last.  Here are a few things that caught my eye as I looked through the Retiring Accesories list:

    * Champagne  Mist Shimmer Paint

    *Petite Pocket Bigz die

    *Fancy Favor Bigz die

    *Manhattan Flower Embossing folder One ofmy all time favorite cards was made withi this folder!  Check it out  here.

    *Basic Black 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon

There's definitely more that I am going to miss and I will do my best to share samples in the coming weeks using some of favorite retiring stamp sets and accesories.  

Here's a few more samples from a recent card class using the Serene Silhouettes stamp set whcih thankfully is NOT on the Retiring list.

I stamped this card last week and was not sure I liked it so I slept on it.  No, i did not put it under my pillow but waited to look at in  the morning with fresh eyes.  Well, after 2 more sleep on its I am still not sure but if I don't share it today I will have to wait a year.  So here goes!

Serene Silhouettes

Love this stamp set, Serene Silhouettes!  Not only does it have gorgeous images but I now know how to spell silhouettes!  Seriously, I knew this set was coming to my house.  I wanted the first card with this set to be something simple and clean and I hope I accomplished that.

I am going to date myself and share the "voices" that were singng in my brain when I stamped this...I stamped once, twice, three times the image and I love you... Okay I hope my singing did not scare you and that you caught the reference.  Before I embarrass myself further here are the supplies I used.

Now that I have embarrassed myself by sharing my singing and the songs that roll around in my head I best end this post!  Wait, did you notice I changed the look of the blog?  What do you think?  Good change, too much, let me know or I might have to sing again.
