Stampin’ Up Sitting Here

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  Sunday’s mother’s day, I hope all of you that are mothers are gong to be treated to something nice.  This includes mothers for children and animals, if it wasn’t for you they wouldn’t be taken care of and it’s your turn to be treated.  I have to work, so who knows what I will come home to.

For today’s card I’ve used a set that will be retiring as of June 3rd, it’s the Stampin’ Up Sitting Here Stamp Set.  This is actually a very quick and easy card.  Take a look.  Doesn’t the puppy look nice and cozy curled up with the pillows?

I played along with the Color Throwdown challenge # 542.  Here are their colors.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the swing, the bird and the flower pot images from the Sitting Here stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the grass image from the same stamp set along the bottom of the panel in Granny Apple Green Ink.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the 3 pillows in Soft Suede Ink and on a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the dog image in Soft Suede Ink.

I colored in the swing using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the cushion on the swing with my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the flowerpot, flowers and pillows in using my Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Wood Textures Designer Series Paper mat using Snail, adhering it to the top of the panel.  I adhered the matted card front to a Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Sitting Here stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I fussy cut the pillows and dog out using my Paper Snips. I adhered the pillows and the dog to the swing image using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the swing using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sitting Here stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Wood Textures DSP to the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the dog and flowerpot from the same stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and colored them in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the dog and flowerpot image from the Sitting Here stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of Wood Textures 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!!

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.
