Stampin’ Up We’ll Walrus Be Friends Friendship Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week been going?  Hope you are making some fun plans for the upcoming weekend.  I’ll be at work all weekend, end of the  month stuff.

For today’s card I used another new stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up We’ll Walrus Be Friends Cling Stamp Set.  The images in this are so cute.  Here’s my card for you.

My design today was inspired by Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge #322.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock and embossed it using the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder making the waves my stripes.  Using my Stamping Sponge, I sponged Seaside Spray Ink over the panel to highlight the waves a bit.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the walrus floating on the ice berg from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips.  I then colored the image in using my Gray Granite and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the walrus image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   I stamped the sentiment from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and using my Triple Banner Punch made a banner out of it.  I adhered the sentiment banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Seaside Spray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dot in Seaside Spray to the sentiment banner.

On the inside I stamped another one of the walrus images and the 2 fish images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the image in using my Gray Granite, Pumpkin Pie and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped one of the walrus images from the We’ll Always Be Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black memento Ink on the front of the envelope and another one on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Gray Granite, Pumpkin Pie and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampn’ Up Daisy Lane Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How are you all doing?

I’ve got a little sneak peek for you of one of the new stamp sets coming in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Stamp Set.  If you like daisies, you’ll love this set.  Here’s my card.

I played along with 2 challenges with my card today.

CAS(E) This Sketch #318  Here is their sketch.

Just Us Girls color week #484.  Here are their colors

I started by running a panel of Granny Apple Green through my Big Shot using the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a  Daffodil Delight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Next on some scraps of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Mango Melody Ink multiple times.  I punched the daisies out using my Daisy Punch.  I layered the daisies together using Glue Dots.

I adhered the daisies to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Basic Black Faceted Dot in the center of each daisy.  On another scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Banners For You Stamp Set (retiring in June).  I stamped the banner in Mango Melody Ink and the sentiment in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I cut the banner out using my Big Shot and the soon to retire Bunch Of Banners Framelits Dies.  I adhered the banner over the bottom daisy using double Stampin’ Dimensionals so that it wasn’t squashing the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink stamping off once on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped another daisy blossom from the same stamp set in Mango Melody Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink over the daisy blossom.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Daffodil Delight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy blossom image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my sneak peek of one of the up coming stamp sets that will be available June 4, 2019.  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
  • Birthday Backgrounds
  • Bokeh Dots
  • Botanical Bliss
  • Country Road
  • Crafting Forever
  • Dandelion Wishes
  • Dashing Deer
  • First Frost
  • Flourishing Phrases
  • Gallery Grunge
  • Healing Hugs
  • Heartland
  • Hold on to Hope
  • Itty Bitty Greetings
  • Kindness & Compassion
  • Label Me Pretty
  • Lilypad Lake
  • Little Elephant

  • Pop of Petals
  • Rooted in Nature
  • Sea of Textures
  • Sorry for Everything
  • Special Celebrations
  • Stitched All Around
  • This Little Piggy
  • Tropical Chic
  • Winter Woods

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.
