Stampin' Up - Retiring Products - Art With Heart April 2018 Blog Hop

Tonight, the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring products from the last chance products list. There is lots of products to choose from with retiring stamp sets, inkpads and ink refills guaranteed to be available until 7 May (and all other products while supplies last). Contact anyone on the blog hop to place your last chance order today.

I am extremely sad to see this stamp set go. It is one of my favourites. I love magnolias and this stamp set has the magnolia in it. Remarkable You is a lovely line art stamp set and perfect to use with the Stampin’ Blends.

Here are the before shots of the flowers and leaves that I have used with the Stampin’ Blends, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry.

Now with the Magnolias I just love the deep purples and I love each spring when they come into blossom, but I had only seen these ones, the red, pink and white. I googled to see if they came in any other colour and they do, yellow so I thought I would make a yellow one for you as well.

I have paired the Remarkable You stamp set up with the also retiring stamp set of One Big Meaning and retiring Colour Theory DSP. I think they work well together. I need some thank you cards in a couple of weeks, so I am set now.

For my second design tonight, I have used one of the other flowers in the Remarkable You stamp set pairing it with One Big Meaning and Colour Theory DSP and some retiring ribbon to make another thank you card.
