Hello Friends!

I go through a lot of birthday cards so I try to have many on hand for that special someone and this is one that is vey quick to mass produce.  Stampin’ Up! provides us with some pretty awesome embossing folders that can stand along with or without a little color and a greeting.

The Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is elegant with or without color added to the flowers.  I love it and use it a lot.  For this card, I used my sponge daubers with a little bit of So Saffron ink and sponged the flowers very lightly. The greeting is from a Piece of Cake Stamp Set and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch.  I also sponged the edges of the So Saffron label and layered it onto the two Tranquil Tide labels that I punched out from the same Pretty Label Punch.   To finish it off, I added 3 tiny pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.  The Take Your Pick tool makes it easy to grab each pearl and place it on the label.  The flowers and the sentiment on the inside are from Perennial Birthday stamp set.


  • Tranquil Tide Card Base – 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Tranquil Tide is one of the 2017 – 2019 retiring In Colors.
  • So Saffron for Front and Inside Layers – 4″ x  5 1/4″
  • Whisper White Layer for Embossing – 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Scrap of So Saffron for label
  • Tranquil Tide for 2 Labels – 3″ x 4″  (I like the look of 2 of these labels rather than cutting one in half)

Last-Chance Products

  • Click Here for the 2019 Occasions Retirement  Catalog List
  • Click Here for the 2018 – 2019 Annual Catalog Retirement List

The items that have an asterisk are retiring in clear and wood only.  They will be returning as a Cling Stamp.    Bundles that are being carried over and are being offered at 10% off, will not to be offered as a bundle in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.   The stamps, dies and/or punches from a previous bundle will only be available as individual items.  

If there’s a bundle in the Occasion and/or current Annual Catalog, I would recommend you get it very soon and save 10%, before it sells out as current products are available while supplies last and are going fast.  Stampin’ Up! is only going to guarantee retiring stamps until May 24 and after that it’s while supplies last, so if you can get it asap.
