Hip Notes Retro Fresh Thank You – Stampin’ Up!

I do love the Retro Fresh DSP from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog and it is only available for a few more days (through June 1)!  I used the Hip Notes stamp set and some of the Retro Fresh DSP to create my card to share today.

Hip Notes - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by Retrosketches #114.

I started by adhering a panel of Retro Fresh DSP to a Tangerine Tango card stock panel with SNAIL.  Then I adhered the layered panel to a Baked Brown Sugar card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Hip Notes 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered a smaller panel of Retro Fresh DSP to a panel of Baked Brown Sugar card stock, then to the card front with SNAIL.

Hip Notes 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I colored the sentiment from the Hip Notes stamp set with my Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped it on a Very Vanilla card stock panel, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement.  Then I colored part of the sentiment from the So Very Grateful stamp set with my Tangerine Tango Stampn’ Write Marker and, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement, stamped the sentiment on the Very Vanilla panel.

Hip Notes 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered the stamped panel to the card front with SNAIL, then punched a little heart from Retro Fresh DSP with the punch from the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (available June 2).  I adhered the heart to the card front with a Stampin’ Dimensional, then added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel that I’d colored with the Bronze Stampin’ Blendabilities Marker (from the Skin Tone Assortment pack).

Hip Notes 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I colored the arrow image from the Hip Notes stamp set sentiment with my Stampin’ Write Markers and I stamped it across a Very Vanilla panel, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig again to help with placement.

  1. Beautiful card! I’m kind of new to crafting and I was wondering how or where did you start when it came to buying products, What products did you start with? How do you decide which product to buy?

  2. Just love this card Amy! So simple and terrific use of your DSP. I will be case-ing this card for sure 🙂 Thank you for the fantastic idea today!

  3. Great card! I love your sentiment panel, that sweet *new* heart punch, and the colored rhinestone. I can’t wait to color my rhinestones with Blendabilities, too! Thanks for playing the color combo at HSS! Erika
