A very special 100th Birthday Card

So this is a first! Celebrating 100 years of age...
A card created for a recipient of a "telegram" from the Queen... isn't this so special! Guess not many of us see one of these...
A very special card for DH's Uncle Joe... who has always been a special (and such a character) uncle!!!
But WOW... 100 years of age... Go Joe! A real legend with more than one book's worth of stories about his fascinating long life!
So I had to make the longest card in celebration... just so everyone in the place knew that Joe was 100!
Such an honour to share this very special day with Uncle Joe... and for my card to "sit" next to the Queen!!!

Retiring Products and Year End Closeout

It's that time of year already... as we make way for the new and coming seasonal products in the Store... by retiring some of the old Christmas and Autumnal products... and even discounting some of them... in the Year End Closeout...

So grab yourself a coffee (or hot chocolate! or something stronger!!) and spend a while checking it all out... as I wouldnt want you to miss something that you will later regret not having!!!

But before you start... a few things to point out!!

Tombow multipurpose glue is now available to order again... item code now 154974... maximum of 3 per order...

All bundled products (with the combined 10% off) officially retire! Even if both individual parts carryover...

The So Many Stars stamps do retire... but the Stitched Stars dies carry over... So if you want the set... buy the bundle now! And get that 10% off...
First up.... the Retiring Favourites... items that will no longer be available once the stocks are gone...
Second up the Discounted Retiring items... again once they are gone... they are gone!
And here a few quick pictures to reflect these Discounted items... please note that some items will probably have gone out of stock already...

Thirdly the Carry Over items... note that the asterixed items are products that carry over to the 2020 Autumn & Christmas catalogue (2020AWC)... so these will not be available until August 2020 (after stocks run out between now and 2nd January) whereas the other carryover items carryover to the Annual Catalogue... so these will continue to be available in the meantime!!

Still Scenes & Feels Like Frost Gap Card

Yes it had to be done! Thank you Heidi for listening and creating "this other idea in my head"... fabulous...

Click here for more details on the card and the Gap Card fold tutorial...
Any my apologies for brevity (and no links etc) for this post and over the last few days... but I was away for a long weekend for a special event (more on that later)... and I just ran out of time as I had 5 posts to write up!

And of course I couldn't explain at the time as that would announce to the world that I was away for a few days!!

Feels Like Frost Acetate Tent Card #2

Oh it had to be done! 

Back to my original idea... with the piece of Feels Like Frost paper that I wish I could just buy a whole 48 sheet pack of...
Just changed up the Mossy Meadow to Pretty Peacock for the stamping of this version... yum! 

Though interestingly virtually everyone - who saw the card in the flesh - thought that the previous version had been stamped in gold ( rather than  Mossy Meadow)

Oh and an In the Woods die cut snow curve at the top instead of the Seasonal Layers scallop top
Simply perfect!

More details on the card recipe etc here...

Still Scenes and Feels Like Frost Pop Out Panel card

Original version of this card shared earlier... using the Still Scenes bundle which is so perfect if you love a snowglobe!

The card shared earlier being a variant for those few ladies in my classes that (actually!!!) don't like snowglobes...

And a few tips for  you...

This card is the perfect size for using the whole of a 6" wide piece of paper... but more on that another day...

Feels Like Frost paper panels to either side just sponged with Seaside Spray ink... but do remember to wipe off with a tissue when you finish... as you don't want ink everywhere!
I left the protective layer on the front sides and top of the snowglobe... as it is it is white so I reckon you can just get away with it! Slightly glossy of course but really not too bad... and much better than a mis-sized cover job!

And yes the card still folds flat(ish) to put in an envelope... standard C6 size...
