Stampin' Up! Botanical Blooms CardBefore I show you the cutest use I’ve seen using the retiring Stampin’ Up! Confetti Hearts Border Punch, let’s take a quick look at some other greeting card ideas using other retiring items.

The first hand stamped card idea with pink flowers and black center and leaves were die-cut with the retiring Stampin’ Up! Botanical Builder Framelits Dies. This was a swap from the Stampin’ Up! Mediterranean cruise. My thought was I really like how she used black. I wouldn’t have thought to use something other that green. But, wait. I just did! Did you see my Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases sympathy card?

What I want to point out on this next card is the retiring Elegant Butterfly Punch and Bitty Butterfly Punch. As you see, they work well layered together. Individually they also make nice accents. The shape Elegant Butterfly Punch is more realistic, lending itself to be elegant. I will really miss both and encourage you to order both before they sell out if they are not yet part of your stamping collection.

Okay, enough teasing. Here’s the swap card that uses the retiring Confetti Hearts Border Punch the cutest way I’ve ever seen. A slice of watermelon to love.
