April Paper Pumpkin

Hey all! Long time, no see! I made it to the stamp room tonight and actually acomplished something so I thought I would share! The April Paper Pumpkin!! First one in a very long time that I have completed!
Here is where we start: with the happy box that arrives in your mail box!

Inside the box you first find the stamp set and ink spot. The kit is always wrapped inside pretty blue tissue.

Under the blue tissue is the shrink wrapped kit that shows you what the project will be. This is the Distinktive one "Sentimental Rose'"

Next a look at everything in the kit. Everything you need is here!

A closer look at the tag sheet

Most everything is die-cut and pre-printed for quick and easy assembly! Below are the 3 cards, the kit made 3 of each. It also had an acetate box to put them in which I passed on making. Would be great as a gift though! My cards went in my box to have to use.

All of the card bases were printed, along with the inside of coordinating envelopes. All the greeting were stamped by me. And I has several to choose from. I like the stamp set and hope to play with it a little more soon! The top one has "splatters" of color printed. I stamped the flower and leaves. The next one the flowers were all printed, I just added the stamped leaves. Bottom one again had color, I stamped the flower and leaves. Layer together, add embellishments and done!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to be back soon.


Retirement Lists ETC!!

Hey all. Never quite ready for these, but here we go. Remember, there are usually some GREAT new goodies to replace retiring ones :)

First, let me remind you all that Stampin' Up! is changing stamp set types for the red rubber stamps. Clear-mount and Wood-mount are going away. In the future Cling-Mount will be the only option. Below is the list of stamps that are carrying over, i.e. changing from Clear or Wood to Cling. Click to download, or right click to save to your computer.

Stamps that are carrying over MAY change to Cling before June 4th if current inventory is depleted.

Next up, Retiring items.

Again these are PDF files. Click to download, Right Click to save to your computer, then open.

All retiring products are "while supplies last" as of right now!!

A few other notes. You will notice that the Big Shot and the Stampin' Trimmer are on the list. Both are being reconfigured. There will be a new die cutting machine and a new trimmer, but not in time for the new catalog. Both should be available during the next catalog year, but dates have not yet been set for either. And there will be new dies and folders in the catalog that will work with old machines, but in a different way. There will be instructions :) This may be a bit bumpy for a while, but will be for the best in the long run!  Stampin' Up! is always striving to give us the newest in innovation!

NOTE: dies and embossing folders included on the retiring list will NOT be offered in the new catalog. Dies and folders not listed on the list will be included in the new catalog and will transition to the new-style when old-style inventory depletes.

Please contact me with any questions! I'm finding a highlighter and sitting down with catalogs to see what I'm losing! Always sad, but unfortunately necessary to get new and better products!!
