Wow am I happy to be hopping with my friends over at Stampin’ Addicts this week.  They are some of my favorite stampers and I always love the inspiration I find in their hops.  It is time to bid a fond farewell to our retiring stamp sets and it will certainly be hard to say good-bye to some of them.

If you just came over from the wonderful Carmen of Stamping Addiction, I’m so glad you are here!  Don’t you love her projects with Quinceanera?  If you want to see everyone who is hopping or if you get lost along the way, just click over to the Stampin’ Addicts site for the entire list.

So I chose one of my favorite ever stamp sets for the hop.  Regarding Dahlias has that fabulous flower.  Seriously, it cannot make a bad card this flower.  But then there are the great sentiments too!  I find myself pulling them all the time!

SA Retiring Hop - Golden Dahlia

My first card today is all about gold!  I took the flower and stamped it in Gold Encore ink then heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I cut the panel so that I could allow a strip of the Gold Foil to show through.  A super easy way to add some wow!  The Gold Basic Button is tied with the metallic threads from the Gold Metallic Baker’s Twine and I added a sentiment from Flower Patch.  I love the clean elegance of this card!

Next up is a card using my favorite color combination for this flower.  Cherry Cobbler with black and white/vanilla.  Typeset DSP provides the the background and stripes details.  The flower and sentiment are stamped on Very Vanilla card stock.  I popped some layers up on Dimensionals and added some Basic Pearls that were colored with a black Sharpie marker.

I hope you like today’s projects.  Like you, I can’t wait to see all that the others have for inspiration!  Hop on over to my friend Heidi at Running w/Scissors Stamper to continue on your way around.  She has some wonderful things to show you with Starburst Sayings.  So glad you dropped in today.  See you again soon!
