Final Goodbye to Bordering on Romance & Curly Cute Stamp Sets.


Okay my last farewell post to the retiring Stampin' Up! stamp sets and accessories.  Love this card done with the Bordering on Romance Stamp Set and my favorite verse set Curly Cute.  Check out the Designer Frames Folder to highlight the flowers.  Next post will be new items from the 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  Have yours?  If not go place that $50 order so you can receive your catalog in the mail.




As I show you fun new products each week in this new series.


Elements of Style and Baja Breeze


Okay Baja Breeze and Elements of Style Stamp Set retiring is really hard to take.  Blue is my favorite color, and Baja Breeze well love it, but all good things come to an end at some point in the stamping world to make room for bigger and better things.  Have you seen the new 2013-2014 Catalog? Don't forget to get that $50 order placed in my on-line store today and get Elements of Style Stamp Set or the many other items that are soon to be retired.

Saying Goodbye to Bordering on Romance & Curly Cute Stamps Sets


Saying final goodbye to Curly Cute Stamp Set is hard, as I love this verse set along with the Bordering on Romance Set.  This card we did at my retirement party.  Wisteria Wonder should be a retiring color but will become a new standard color in the new catalog.  Don't have your new catalog remember a $50 order in my on-line store and you get one mailed right to you.  The 3/8" Ruffed Ribbon will be retiring so make sure you get that on your order soon.

Announcing a New Video Series "What's Up with Stampin' Up!?"

As I say my finally farewell to Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder, I am announcing a new video series starting Friday.  "What's up with Stampin' Up!?"  Don't worry every Tuesday I am committed to the Creative Fold Videos, but now on Friday I will do a new video series of "What's Up with Stampin' Up!" introducing the new with Stampin' Up!.  Like the new title?  It was my darling husband's idea for the name.  Don't have the new catalog that we can start ordering from on Friday?  Place a $50 order at my on-line store at the top of this blog and I will send you a copy.  Until Friday happy stamping.


Act Now-Retiring French Foliage Stamp Set & Vintage Wallpaper Folder


Why is it so hard to say goodbye to some stamp sets?  French Foliage is one of the sets.  Guess me loving fall is part of the reason, but I truly love this set.  Do you have in your stamp collection?  If not you only have a few short days to add it as it is retiring along with Vintage Wallpaper Folder.  Don't forget if you order $50 or more in my on-line store I will send you the new 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! Catalog.

Retiring Stampin' Up! Punch

The Blossom Builder Punch will soon be retired and we used at my Retirement Party to create this card.  First we punched out 2 sizes of petals and ran the smaller one through the Polka Dot Embossing Folder and the large petals through the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder.  We used a circle punch for the base to attach our flower petals to made it easier to form our flower.  The Top Note Bigz Die was used for the background and the already retired Embossing Folder Elegant Bouquet Folder.  That is why with Stampin' Up! accessories if there is something you want you better get now, because accessories are only available while supplies last.  Another item retiring at the end of the month is the 5/8" Flower Trim found in the Occasions Catalog.  Gosh I am going to hate to see that retire as I love it, it adds no bulk to your cards, so no added postage is needed when sending through the mail.  The Designer Paper and Ink used is the Island Indigo, which is an In Color that should be retiring but instead is part of the color refresh.


Going, Going Gone Soon to Be Retired

Over the next couple days I want to share some of the cards we made during my Stamp-a-Stack of retiring stamp sets.  This card was done with the Best of Everything Stamp Set.  Since I own this set in clear, we were able to color the design in with the Stampin' Write Markers and stamp it once, verse and branch together.  Doesn't get easier than that.  Don't have this set?  You need to hurry as it will retire soon.  Remember you can order 24/7 online here.


Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die

Another card I received from Jill Olsen using the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die for the Big Shot and the soon to be retired Print Poetry Designer Series Paper.  Jill had sent me a similar card a year or so ago.  I loved the look showcasing several different papers, so I did a YouTube Video showing how to do this technique with the release of last year's In Colors watch here.  I may need to do this to spotlight the new in colors this year, that will be released on May 31.  Watch for exciting new product base class samples in the coming days.  The words come from the stamp set Curly Cute which is a retiring stamp set.  Check out all the retiring items here, and make sure you get them for your stamp collection before they are gone for good.Scan03
