Another card made with a soon to be retired stamp set called Tart and Tangy.  It's a great little set - wish I'd taken photos of other projects I've made with it so I could share them with you.  Any way, this card is shaped like a popsicle or ice cream bar and is as much fun to make as it is to give.  When I embossed the orange slice I added a little plain (no sugar or sweetener) orange kool aid so it became a scratch 'n sniff card!  Card stock used was Only Orange (retired) and Whisper White.

On June 30 Stampin' Up! will retire some products to make way for new ones in July. the card below was made using one of the retiring sets, Lots of Bots. To order this set, or another set you love that is retiring, contact your SU demonstrator soon! If you don't have a demonstrator, follow the link on the left (under Followers) to my SU web site to check out the Last Chance List and place your order there.
Card stock used to create this card were Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, and Whisper White. Stampin' Write markers were used to color the robot. The metal layer was cut from a soda can and embossed with an embossing folder from my stash. The "screw" is a brad also from my stash.

Welcome to the 12th stop on the VC_Rocks June blog hop! If you are hopping along in order, you arrived here from Tammy Howell's blog. Didn't you love her project? If you didn't just come from Tammy's blog and would like to see a wonderful collection of fabulous projects, you can find the complete list on the VC_Rocks blog. Or look for a link to the next project at the end of this post and follow the links in each blog post until you've completed the hop.
Our theme this month is Big Shot Madness! What a fun and versatile tool! If you have one, don't you love it? My project is a birthday card on which the polka dotted layer of DSP was embossed using my Big Shot and the Square Lattice embossing folder. Other items used on this card are: Basic Black and Very Vanilla card stock, Newsprint DSP, Victoria Crochet trim, stamps from the Four Frames, Teeny Tiny Wishes, and retired Bliss stamp sets, the Decorative Label punch and Stampin' Write markers.
The next stop is Tessa Boulter's blog. She's so creative! Enjoy!

The products on these pages were purchased long before I knew Stampin' Up even existed. Oh, but I did use two SU punches (the scalloped border and corner rounder) and pearls from a Pretties kit on them.
