ESAD Retired Product Blog Hop

I decided to take part in another blog hop this week. This time it is with ESAD and with retired products. I have been making so many cards with retired product lately for my classes so this blog hop was perfect for me to take part in. You may have come from Donna Chapman or maybe you have started with me. So welcome and hope enjoy everybody's creations using products that are only available until the 1st June!  
At the bottom of my post and everyone's else post there will be a link to the next person so just keep going until you come back to where you started.

  Well with the excitement with a fantastic upcoming new catalogue and seeing terrific new products we also have the sadness of having to say goodbye to some of our favourites. And the one that I am going to miss alot and has always delivered the 'wow' factor is the stampset "Stippled Blossoms".
 If you have followed my blog or have been to my classes you will know how much I love this stampset.
 I have also included three of my favourite colours from the 2013-2015 In-Colour collection which also need to step aside to allow the 5 next exciting new colours that will make up the 2015-2017  In-Colour Collection. 

Here is my card showcasing Stippled Blossoms. This card has been made for a friend who had just been through a really tough patch and I hope to brighten up her day just a little.
The retired products that I have used are Strawberry Slush Ink, Pistachio Pudding Ink, Crisp Cantaloupe Ink and Cardstock, Crisp Cantaloupe In-Colour DSP and of course Stippled Blossoms stampset.Other products used are Wild Wasabi Ink, Whisper White Cardstock, Wetlands Stampset, Dazzling Diamonds and the Stampin' UP! glue pen.
 I fussy cut ( cut out by hand ) each flower and each leaf and then added Dazzling Diamonds with a glue pen to give the card some bling and dimension. I really do love how the darker colour makes the whole image pop. Here is a close up of the flowers:
And a simple flower inside the cards to continue the floral image throughout the card.

Thanks for checking out my creation. Feel free to leave a comment. I would love to know what you think! Next up is Amity Knight . I am sure you will enjoy seeing Amity's addition to the blog. Click here or on Amity's name to head over to her post.
