Fashionista and Footloose Retirement Card + Giveaway

Happy 4th of July, you guys! Hope you're enjoying some yummy BBQ and friends/family. I'll be BBQing with my hubby and cousin and her hubby this afternoon. It's even supposed to be sunny in Seattle today...woohoo!

Ok onto my card. I loved the Fashionista Stamp Set the moment I set eyes on it in the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book. But can you believe this is the first time I played with it?! I made this retirement card for my aunt and thought this fun fashionista was the perfect image to celebrate her new found freedom!

I used a corrugated cardboard card base and Footloose papers with cocoa cardstock. The "congratulations" stamp is an old one from Stampin' Up. I think SU has some adorable stamps, but I have to say it took me 3 tries to stamp it perfectly straight on that shape (which I cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge). That's why I love CTMH stamps so much...they're clear so you can place them perfectly the first time!

If you like the Footloose papers you'd better snag them now because after July they're retiring! Right now the paper packet by itself is not on my website, but the Footloose Workshop on the Go is still available. The WOTG is a great value at just $29.95—it comes with a full paper packet, a super-cute exclusive stamp set, a pack of wooden badge buttons, and an instructional brochure. Great for your summer photos!
