Sweet Dreams Gets Wired

Stampin up hodgepodge sweet dreams

How about a quick and easy card?  My Stamping 911 category offers just that . . . cards you can create in 10 minutes or less.  Click here to see other Stamping 911 samples.  Today's card qualifies in a flash.

The little Chocolate Chip garden plucks it's inspiration from Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Dreams Set (Hostess Level I).  I repeated the stamp moving left to right in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White card stock.  Hodgepodge Hardware brads accent each corner.  I next adhered it to Wild Wasabi Designer Paper (only available in the Prints Pack Hostess Level I) and wrapped it in Stampin' Up!'s sumptuous 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain.  Both hostess sets are approaching retirement on Aug. 10.  Here's a download of the complete Retired Stamp List by Page Number.

These adorable wire swirls are from the Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware Kit (along with the brads used above).  Two of the three finishes in the hardware kits are sold out as of this a.m. (Pewter and Antique Brass).  Aged Copper (which I think is a beautiful sleeper) is still available at 25% off, (I know you may be tired of this phrase) "while supplies last."  Here are the latest updates on what's still available on Stampin' Up!'s Retired Accessories List.  I also have this link conveniently posted (and updated) for your viewing pleasure in the top right of my blog under "Last Chance."  Update 7/23 at 10:45 p.m.:  Aged Copper Hodgepodge Hardware is also sold out.

The sentiment is from Sweet Dreams, given independence with the assistance of a Key Tag Punch and some Stampin' Dimensionals.  The whole concoction is adhered to a 3 3/4" x 6" card base of Bordering Blue Textured card stock.

Ahhh . . . the luxury of a quick card 🙂
