Stampin’ Up Soon To Retire Birthday Sentiments

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  The weekend is right around the corner, is anyone doing anything special for Easter?

For today’s card I used another soon to retire set,  Stampin’ Up Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set.  I am really going to miss this set.  I just love the large images, they are great for coloring. Here’s my card.

With the colors I chose for my card, I was able to play along with Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge #312.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the large image from the Birthday Sentiments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using my Call Me Clover, Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and made a banner out of it.  I edged the banner using my Call Me Clover Stampin’ Write Marker then adhered it to the artwork using Glue Dots.

Using my Big Shot, I ran a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock through using the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I wrapped a piece of the Lovely Lipstick Ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few of the Call Me Clover and Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the birthday cake image from the Stampin’ Up Amazing Life Stamp Set (retiring June 3rd), in Flirty Flamingo Ink stamping off once to a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the birthday cake.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the birthday cake on the envelope front and the scrolls on the envelope flap from the Amazing Life stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. If you are really liking the stamp set I used, don’t wait to get it The retired items sell out pretty quickly.  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)

Click the images below to head over to shop the specific retiring items:

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.

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
  • Little Twinkle
  • Love You to Pieces

  • 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.

Stampin’ Up Birthday Statements for Inspire.Create

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  Is anyone going to do anything fun?  I’m hoping to get some craft time in after working today and Saturday.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Birthday Statements Stamp Set.  I love the large image that makes the whole card.  I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for spring and I seem to be using more springy colors lately.  Here’s my card for today.

I joined in with the Inspire. Create. colour challenge #037.  Be sure to stop by to see the projects and to play along.  Here are their beautiful pastel colors.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the image from Birthday Statements in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using my Big Shot I cut the image out with the 3rd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  Then using the 2nd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies I cut out a Daffodil Delight mat.  I adhered the artwork to the Daffodil Delight mat using Snail.

I adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the matted artwork and swirled Silver Metallic Thread so that it was just overlapping the sides and peeking out.  I then adhered the artwork to a Pool Party card base.  I stamped the small sentiment from the Birthday Statements stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock in Mint Macaron Ink and punched it out using the Classic Label Punch.  I adhered the punched sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Adhesive Back Sequins to the artwork and 2 Mint Macaron Faceted Dots to the punched sentiment.

On the inside I wanted to match the flowers the best I could to the card front image.  I found similar flowers in the Stampin’ Up Lovely Latice Stamp Set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item).  I stamped 3 flowers in each corner of a Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in with my Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped 3 of the small flower images from the Lovely Lattice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap.  I colored them in the same as I did on the card.

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