Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?  I thought spring was here, then just like that the air feels like fall again.  I’m really ready for the warmer weather now, how about you?

For today’s card I used a set that will be retiring as of June 3rd.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest Stamp Set.  I’m really going to miss this set.  When I see lemons I think of the warmer weather and lemonade.   Here’s my card.

I joined in with the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #333.  Here is their sketch

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base and adhered a piece of the Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper (retiring June 3rd) using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink towards the left side.  I adhered the whisper white panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail.I adhered a piece of the Flax Ribbon to the card front then adhered a thin strip of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock over the ribbon using Glue Dots.  I adhered the matted sentiment panel over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the whole lemon image from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink.  I stamped the leaves from the same stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.  I cut the lemon and the leaves out using the Lemon Builder Punch (also retiring June 3rd).  I adhered the leaves to the back of the lemon using Glue Dots then the lemon to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the lemon slice from the same stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink stamping off once over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lemon and the leaves from the Lemon Zest stamp set on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Gingham Gala DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Here is the list of stamp sets that WILL be in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  The stamp sets on this list will not be retiring, they will simply be transitioned to Cling Mount moving forward:

  • Accented Blooms
  • Animal Outing

  • Barn Door
