Most of the projects designed by the other demonstrators are greeting cards. I decided to decorate an acetate box that will hold greeting cards. Here is the project I shared using the Above the Clouds bundle. The bundle includes the stamp set and punch both of which are on the soon to be retired list.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Thinking of You

I hope you are enjoying our Thinking of You Guys themed Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Annette McMillan’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to stamp a birthday card since birthdays are a Thinking of You occasion. It’s a quick and easy card with just stamps, paper and inks.

I have pulled all my soon to be retiring stamp sets and placed them in a pile. It’s 24 sets which I will try to showcase on my blog one last time before they are gone for good! I used the sets in photo to create this card along with the Tailored Tags punch and Country Club designer series paper.
