Confetti Celebration

One of my goals this Stampin' Up! year is to use all of the stamp sets I've purchased or earned for free ....... before they retire!

I'm getting there, but still have a few sets that have not yet seen ink!

Confetti Celebration was my stamp set of choice for last week. I created several cards using it and will show you them all over the next few days :o)

Another of my goals is to use as much Designer Series Paper as I can! This goal isn't going so well :o) I have loads of it left that I need to use up! Some of the papers are just too pretty to cut into!

I decided to stick with Festive Birthday for all the cards. I love bright colours, so they were perfect!

Builder Birdcage - Team Training - Make and Take

I decided to design a Double Slider card as the Make & Take for my Team Training meeting this month. These seem to be 'back in fashion' at the moment ..... and as it's been quite a few years since I last created one, I thought it would be a great project for my girls :o)

I used one of the beautiful Tassels from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment kit as the Pull .... and it works really well. I secured this with a little of the ribbon from the same kit. It's secured using a lot of Tear & Tape between the Taupe and Watermelon layers - the last thing you want is for this to come away :o) 

You just pull the Pull and the top and bottom panels emerge.

I'm still using up my 2015 - 2017 In Colours :o) Most of these are currently on backorder - BUT they are still available at the moment. Remember they will go at the end of May .... if they last that long. The In Colour products are always the first to go when the Retirement List comes out!

The sentiments are both from the Balloon Adventures stamp set.
