Stampin’ Up Love What You Do

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We finally have a couple days without rain.  As of Tuesday my husband was telling me it rained 27 of the past 29 days.  We really need to dry up a little around here.

For today’s card I’ve made a pretty quick and easy one.  I used the soon to retire How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with a couple challenges with my card today.  First off is Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge #316.  Here’s their sketch.

Next is the Global Design Project Color Challenge #189.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Gorgeous Grape card front and adhered a panel of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper, which will be retired as of June 3rd, to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a strip of Pineapple Punch cardstock to a mat of Gorgeous Grape cardstock using Snail.  I adhered the matted strip to the center of the card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon (retiring as of June 3rd) around the matted strip and the card front and secured it in the back using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the flowers in using my Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and the circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped circle out of Gorgeous Grape card stock using the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the stitched circle to the scalloped circle using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I made a banner of the sentiment strip and adhered it to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple of the Glitter Enamel Dots to the banner.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the Love What You Do stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom corners of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped them with the small watermark stamp from the same stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink.  I stamped the large watermark image from the same stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink in the center of the panel stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the A Big Thank You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the watermark.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail, then adhered it to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Love What You Do stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and back.  I used the small watermark stamp from the same stamp set to color them in with Pineapple Punch Ink.  I adhered a panel of the How Sweet It Is 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! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

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.
