Happy Happenings

This is the swap card I made for Onstage Live last month.  It was so hard to find something that didn't use retiring products, without having the retiring list when I made my swaps.  The retiring list actually didn't come out until after we attended Onstage Live.  Stampin' Up did give us a list of stamp sets that would be carrying over into the next annual catalog, so that was helpful!  And then I just hoped that the Designer Series Paper stacks would continue on (and they did!).

Ok, now for the details of our card.....

We start our card with a Melon Mambo card base, then we added a Whisper White piece of card stock to our card.

Next, we added a piece of the Neutrals (gold) Designer Series Paper stack to the top of our card and a piece of the Brights (Melon Mambo) Designer Series Paper stack to the bottom of our card.

Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack  138435  $22.00

 Brights Designer Series Paper Stack  138434  $22.00

Before actually adding these layers to our card, we added a strip of Melon Mambo 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon and adhered it behind our layers, then we added these layers to our card.

The Melon Mambo ribbon is retiring (I knew there had to be something!), so make sure to order yours before it's gone forever!  I just love this ribbon - I think it's the color!

Then, we stamped "Let the Celebration of your Fabulousness Begin!" in Melon Mambo ink and die-cut it with the Lots of Labels Framelits.  This sentiment, along with 13 other useful, all-occasion sentiments, can be found in the Happy Happenings Stamp Set.

We layered our sentiment on another Melon Mambo piece die-cut with the same framelits.  I love how well these 2 pieces layer together - and with the Lots of Labels framelits, there are 7 different die sizes to choose from!

Finally, we added a Bright (Melon Mambo) Candy Dot to our sentiment.  The Candy Dots are retiring - make sure to order yours while you still can!
