Lacey Pairs

Hello again and welcome back!  I had fun with the challenge at Friday Mashup this week, where we have the choice to use the sketch or use retiring/retired Stampin' Up! products or mash it up and do both.  Which is what I did, and am sharing with you tonight.

I have many, many stamp sets on the retiring products list (sniff, sniff), but one of my current favs is the Hostess set I Like You.  I've had a lot of fun coloring the flowers with the discontinued Blendability Markers.  I used this color combo with this set several weeks ago and loved it so much I decided to use it for this card too.

The Whisper White base was stamped in retired Pretty in Pink ink with the Something Lacey background stamp.  After embossing with the retiring Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder, a Wild Wasabi panel was layered on top.  The tag was cut from retired textured Melon Mambo card stock, with one end cut with the Scallop Tag Topper punch (NOT retiring, thank goodness!).

The flowers were colored with Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi Blendability markers (no longer available) then mounted on the tag.  To top the tag, Strawberry Slush Thick Twin was tied into a bow around a few pieces of white twine from the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine collection.

A banner with the sentiment from Petite Pairs and Wild Wasabi Candy Dots was the final touch for the tag.

Thanks for taking a look!  As always your visit and comments are so appreciated!!  Be sure to use the link above to check out all the great inspiration at Friday Mashup.
