Goodbye Stems

I've just heard the sad news that Stem Silhouettes isn't making it into our new catalogue :o( In fact, the list of what's making it though from the Summer Mini is pitifully small. Only Bud Basics, Basic Outline wheel, Backyard BBQ, Carte Postale and Leaves a la Carte wheel will be in our new catalogue. All the other stamps sets and papers will be gone forever at the end of this month. Let me know if there's anything you would like before March 31!
This set has been the one I've reached for whenever I want to pull together a simple, elegant card. It really makes a statement, and you don't have to do anything fancy with it at all.
This card is actually just a card-front, like a postcard, but I've stuck a pocket note (these are also in the Summer mini, and also retiring) on the front. It opens up like this:
The colours I've used are Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip and Close to Cocoa. I've used markers and the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the greeting in 2 lines, so it fits inside the pocket note.
I'm working on the Sunny Boy tutorial for you, but in the meantime, check out my downline Kirrily's first tutorial on chipboard here. Isn't she clever? :o)


  1. very classy card Marelle, I lvoe these colours together. I'm sad to see Stem Silhouettes go too :(

  2. I adore this set and I am very sad that it won't be in the new catty. I just love bashful blue and chocolate chip together... I use it a lot. A very beautiful card.

  3. What a great idea to use those teany pocket notes, also very sad Stem Silhouettes is going:-(

  4. Love the layout & colours Marelle. Very clever idea to use the pocket notes Still sobbing about 'stems' retiring though.
