It’s always a sad day to see the retirement list but for demonstrators, it’s an exciting one as well as we get to see the next Annual Catalogue. If you can’t wait until 1 June to see the new catalogue, you can take advantage of the starter kit and become a part of my team and you’ll get to see the new catty straight away!! Talk to me if you would like more information.
Whilst I was having fun at convention last week, my two dear friends, Emma and Jess, who couldn’t come, ran an event for our non-convention going team members which we called Convention@Home. They did an amazing job running challenges, discussion and prize patrols!!
I tried to help out beforehand and made cards for some of the challenges they did. The first challenge was to use your favourite retiring stamp set. This was a bit hard for me as I have a few favourites retiring 😦 I do love Stippled Blossoms as it looks so pretty without being that hard to use.
I also used a Mojo Monday sketch for inspiration.
I’m pretty happy with how my version turned out!
I’m so sad that the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder is retiring! It was my first folder (sob).

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.
Here’s a closer look.
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.
I hope you have enjoyed my cards today. Please leave me a comment!!
