That’s right! Retiring very soon is this Stampin’Up! stamp set Friend Like You, along with the matching die set – Friendly Silhouettes. With products disappearing daily from the available list of retiring products it is a challenge to find sets to create with that are still available. The Last Chance Sale ends on May 3. I was in need of quick ideas and so to Pinterest I turned.
I quickly CASE’d this idea from a pin I’d saved in Pinterest from UK demonstrator Fiona Whitten. A great card for the boys or the girls in your life. The dies were used for the dragonflies and the bull rushes. The seed heads on the dies were coloured in using a Soft Suede Stampin’ Write marker pen. I originally bought this stamp set and dies purely for those cute little dragonflies!
Colours used are Granny Apple Green, Soft Sued and Bermuda Bay.
While I was in the crafting zone and totally lacking inspiration, I CASE’d another Pinterest pin I had saved this time from Karina Chin a Canadian demonstrator.
Please excuse my less than perfect embossing. Note to self, get rid of current stocks of embossing powder, there are too many “bits” in it! Those silhouette palm trees are lovely. A pity I haven’t crafted more with this die set. The embossed panel was done using the Hammered embossing folder. The addition of the Antiqued Corners was my addition to Karina’s original card.
Colours used for this card are Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and Basic Black.
