Stampin’ Up Postcard Pals

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Well another week almost over and the weekend is upon us.  Is anyone starting to make plans?  I’m hoping it’ll be a nice one.

For today’s card I made you another clean and simple card using another soon to retire set, the Stampin’ Up Postcard Pals Stamp Set.   I am really going to miss this set.  I just love all the little critter images from it.  I also used all retiring 2017-2019 In-Colors on my card.  Here’s today’s card.

I started with a panel of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the platypus image from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Bronze, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Night Of Navy, Soft Sea Foam and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on the top of the Whisper White panel in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I adhered 2 strips of the Tranquil Textures DSP to the back of the artwork using Snail.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered 2 strips of the Tranquil Textures DSP to the left side of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered the panel to the inside of the Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the platypus from the Postcard Pals stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered a piece or the Tranquil Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  This stamp set, cardstock and designer series paper will all be retiring on June 3rd.  If it’s something you’ve been wanting, don’t wait grab it while you can.  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
  • Artisan Textures
  • Barn Door
  • Beautiful Day
  • Beautiful You
  • Bee Thankful

Any other stamp sets in the 2018-19 Annual Catalog that are NOT on this list will be retired.  Sorry again for the confusion!  Stampin’ Up! is aware of the confusion and hopefully will be posting an updated list for us.
