May Tour de Freaks, Things Old & New

Helloooo, and welcome back to the monthly Tour de Freaks! This month we are featuring things old and new. So while we may be saying goodbye to some old retiring favorites from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog and 2015 annual catalog, we are also welcoming new favorites from the 2016 annual catalog, which starts June 1st. If you started at the beginning of the hop, then you just landed here from Mary's Stamper Camper's Corner blog. I just love her stamping style! If you started here, just follow the links at the bottom of each post to see all nine stops on the hop.

I only have three cards to share this month, so I thought it would be fun for the first two to combine both old and new things! I used the Timeless Elegance DSP and Another Thank You stamp set, both of which are retiring at the end of this month. I paired them with NEW In Colors ink, ribbon, and cardstock. Dapper Denim with Marina Mist on the first one, and Sweet Sugarplum with Rich Razzleberry on the second. (Oh, and the butterfly is from Garden in Bloom, which is carrying over to the new catalog, yippee!!!)

For the last card, I just had to use some of the scrumptious new Pop of Pink Specialty DSP! Ohhh, I have so many ideas for this stuff! Keeping it simple let the DSP "shine!" (Get it? Teehee!) The new Duet Banner Punch and the returning Ballon Bouquet Punch made this a very quick and easy card!

That's all from me this time around. Check back tomorrow for another thank you card like the first two, with the "How To" included!

Now hop on over to Mindy's Bada-Bing! Paper-Crafting! blog and see what she's cooked up. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I'm loving that balloon card with the duet punch. What stamp set is the sentiment from?

    1. Thanks, Heidi! That's the new Thoughtful Banners stamp set.
