It’s time for these ones to say Goodnight

goodbyes

Welcome to the Eureka Stampers Retirement Blog Hop! You may be starting here with me, or have hopped around from the fabulous Mel.

One of my favourite tools to use (aside from the Big Shot) is the Colour Coach which is sadly retiring. I hope they bring out something similar. I find it really handy when I am looking for a new colour combo. For our hop today, I got out my trusty colour coach and had a look at the suggestions for Bermuda Bay (fav colour at the mo!!). I decided to go with Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango and Smoky Slate. The next step was to decide what stamp set to use. Fortunately, I have 47 stamp sets that are retiring so I had a few to choose from!! I decided I would feature stamps and their matching punches for my projects today.

For my first card, I used the Mosaic Madness stamp and the matching mosaic punch. I love this bundle and will be sad to see them go. I used Smoky Slate cardstock for my base and then the Brights DSP stack for the Bermuda Bay patterned paper. I carefully laid out the punched shapes and stuck them down with fast fuse. I added a piece of the silver satin ribbon (it looks very close to smoky slate) and used the Apothecary Accents framelits (which are retiring) and the Lots of Thanks stamp set.

For my second card, I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest by Card Creations by Beth.

I stuck with the same colour combo as before but used a different stamp/punch bundle – Label Love stamp set and Artisan label punch. I also used the Alphabet Press embossing folder (retiring) which is great for baby cards.
