New At SU Retirement Parade Blog Hop Positive Thoughts

Welcome to the New At SU Retirement Parade Blog Hop as we showcase products retiring from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. You will be visiting with our Design Team Members as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you to explore these wonderful products before they disappear. The retiring products from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog are available only while supplies last, so make sure to take advantage of this opportunity.
For my card design, I chose to use the retiring Positive Thoughts stamp set with the coordinating Nature's Thoughts Dies, which are also retiring. These products are perfect for creating positive, uplifting cards to send to family and friends. I kept my card simple, with some gold touches to step up the design.

  1. The past two years have provided the opportunity to send many sympathy cards, and your lovely design would work for "Get Well" and "Here for You" as well! Did you sponge the Pale Papaya background circle? Must remember that...

  2. Such a pretty card! And I agree with Loni, it is a great card, for many occasions! Very pretty. Sad to see this set leaving!
