Stampin’ Up Apron Of Love Soon To Be Retired Set

Happy Earth Day my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did you have a nice Easter?  I was very thankful to have my daughter, niece and nephew over to help me with the cooking.  I’m finding it to be a bit of a nuisance to work with just one arm, especially when putting food in and out of the oven.  They were wonderful and so much help, I am so lucky to have them.

For today’s card I’m using another set that will be retiring on June 3rd.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Apron Of Love Stamp Set.    Here’s my card.

I was also able to join in with a couple challenges with my card.  I played along with Fab Friday sketch challenge #161.  Here’s their sketch

I also joined in with the Color Throwdown color challenge #539.  Here are their colors.

I started by doing all my cutting so that I would have everything ready.  Using my Big Shot I cut the apron, bow, flowers, pocket, ruffle and strings out from the Apron Builder Die out of Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Whisper White cardstock.  I then cut the Mango Melody frame using the largest and 3rd largest or the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I cut Daffodil Delight and Whisper White squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies using the smallest square.  Then it was time to start assembling.

I started by arranging the squares to look like a tile floor then adhered the Mango Melody Frame to the top of the squares using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I adhered the strings to the back of the apron using Glue Dots, the flowers to the front of the apron using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the bow to the pocket using a Glue Dot and the pocket to the ruffle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the pocket to the apron using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the apron to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Apron Of Love stamp set on a piece of Vellum cardstock in Pacific Point Ink and made a banner out of it.  I adhered the banner to the bottom of the card front using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the apron from the Apron Of Love stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on a Whisper White panel stamping it off once.  I stamped the utensils from the same stamp set in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Inks on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink in the center of the apron.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mango Melody mat using Snail and then 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 utensils from the Apron Of Love stamp set in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Inks across the bottom to the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 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.  If you are liking this set, I’d grab it before it’s too late.  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

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 Wishing You Well

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I don’t usually rush weeks, but the end of this week is OnStage.  I’ll get to see the new 2019-2020 Annual catalog and all the new goodies coming out.  Hopefully next Monday I’ll be able to share some things with you.

For today’s card I really went outside of my comfort zone.  It’s not straight, and I meant to do this, it’s just not my normal.  I used the Stampin’ Up Wishing You Well Stamp Set, which was carried over from the holiday catalog.  This set has the most realistic bow ever.  I think that is one of the reasons I bought it.  Here’s my card.

I also joined in with CAS Colours and Sketches #315.  Here are their colors for the week.

I started with a card front of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Gorgeous Grape and adhered it to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I added the flowers to the bouquet in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and the Square Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I stamped the bow from the same stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I cut a scalloped square frame from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies out of Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  I did this by picking the scalloped square I wanted to use and took a solid square 2 sizes smaller and cut them out together with my Big Shot.  On a strip of Granny Apple Green cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with my Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.

It took me a while to arrange this to my liking, but once I got it I secured the frame in the corners using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork over the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the bow to the bottom of the bouquet using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the artwork and the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flowers in the bouquet in Gorgeous Grape Ink stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong and Beautiful Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink over the bouquet.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bouquet from the Wishing You Well stamp set the same as I did for the card on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 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!!
