Happy Friday! I am glad you’re here to see the fun I have planned today. I made another video with my current favorite stamp set, Friends Who Know, by Stampin’ Up!

Good Morning Crafties! It’s Teach Me Tuesday where I’ll be showing you how to make the cute card I’m sharing. Below is a video with instructions and I’ll walk you through it in under 10 minutes. I’ll give you a supply list as well so that you can order the stamps and ink needed to make this beauty!
Before we get into the card and video, I have a little housekeeping to do. It’s that time of the year- the RETIRING LIST is coming out soon. Soon as in April 21, 2o15– that’s right around the corner- next week in fact. I don’t want you to miss out on the things you love, but we know how quickly things go. Sometimes they sell out at midnight. People sit online waiting for the list to go live, and order bulk of card stock, ink, reinkers and stamps. Let’s talk about it- we know the In Colors 2013-2015 are going. Order them now, because on April 21st they will be gone- all gone. It happens every year and I don’t want you to miss out!
Other things that may go (I say may, because I have not seen the list either, but these are educated guesses as to the things that typically make the list):
2013 In Color embellishments
2013 In Color ribbon
2013 In Color card stock & markers & ink
All Designer Series Paper
Some embossing folders
Some dies and framelits
Project Life cards?
I will be sending out an email as early as I can on the 21st with the list. Make sure you review it and order the things you love early so they don’t sell out. If you love the In Color collection from 2013, I suggest you order those things now, as they will sell out immediately. Happy shopping!
I LOVE the Friends Who Know stamp set. There are so many things to love about it. I love that it looks like a blackboard, that it’s scripty and hand drawn; I love the doodles around it. I love that it’s a Label Framelit shape- the shape is beautiful! I love the size- perfect for a card front. I love that the framelit matches perfectly. I love that it only comes in wood mount. I am a photopolymer girl all the way, but man I love this wood stamp. It stamps so cleanly and inks up so well. I love that it says, “We’ll Be Friends Forever because you already know too Much”. It is so true. It brings up hundreds of memories that I have with my best friends that I hope I will always remember (or hope to forget some of them!). Times that we will laugh about for years, inside jokes, and even things we will keep between us forever. It makes me think of all of the special times we had together, the fun activities that filled our years, and how much I love my besties. It literally brings a smile to my face, and I hope that it will bring a smile to their faces when they open it. I am absolutely mailing these out to my gals to let them know how much I love them. (Actually, they already went out in the mail! So excited!)
THIS. CARD. I just love the bright colors and how well Melon Mambo pairs with Bermuda Bay. it is the perfect friend card. I love everything about it. Get ready to make it too!
Alright, now that you’ve seen the card, here’s the video:

Yesterday I mentioned that theFriends Who Know stamp set looks great colored in between the lines so I am showing you an example today.
I went with a full on chalkboard look for this card, complete with a black card base. The next layer is Pool Party, embossed with the Large Dot embossing folder, also new. The Friends Who Know is stamped in Basic Gray and then I used Blendibilities to color in between the lines. I used Coastal Cabana, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler & Daffodil Delight, and it looks amazing! It is bright and cheery and pops.
