Retiring Lists and Share Sunshine PDF

Hey, all! Hope everyone is doing well! All is good here, except that COVID #'s are WAY up around here! There is a Smithfield pork plant nearby and the numbers are climbing! Staying out of town and as distant as possible!

I finally took time last night and went through the retiring lists. Not too bad overall! Always a few sets that hurt, but I will survive :)  We have both Annual catalog and Mini Catalog lists, in both PDF and Excel format. If using the PDF, get a magnifying glass - the font is TINY! I didn't pull up the Excel so no comment there! I am told you can sort the Excel one too.

All retiring items available *ONLY* while supplies last! All discontinued June 2, 2020! Stamp sets guaranteed until May 22, 2020.  Some items are discounted. Discounts vary by market because of inventory levels.

A few notes in addition to the lists:

The 2018-2020 In Colors are retiring. If you like them, get the items ASAP.

Stampin' Up! is bringing out a the new Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machines (yes, Machines!) so a few dies and folders are just being reconfigured. They may be on the list because item numbers are changing. **Read the fine print and look at what the asterisk mean! If in doubt, ask me. I have access to the new catty and can confirm if something is in there or not!

The Stampin' Blends are being "repackaged" and going forward will only be sold in the sets of light and dark. Singles available while supplies last up to June 2! This includes the Bronze and Ivory which will be a new combo pack.

The Snail adhesive is being retired, but in true Stampin' Up! Style something better is on the way! Stay tuned for more details.

Ask if you have questions! I may have answers, or I can find them out! I do have access to the new catalog and that may help :)

And finally, true to Stampin' Up principals, a COVID-19 Giveback.

Old to New: Island Triple

Hey all! Happy Wednesday! Pretty glad to still be going to the office so I know which day is which! I have a few of these to share, what I like to call Old to New. When I was doing stamp events regular I always prepped the cardstock and always had a few extra. I dug into several the other day and started creating! Here is the New version of the first, a Triple Time card using Island Indigo.

and the Original Version

If you like this, the current Pretty Peacock color is VERY close to Island Indigo! Original colors were Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. I grabbed Pear Pizzazz this time and stuck with Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo. The card base and accent layers are Island Indigo, background Whisper White. Set used, Positive Thoughts. 3 flowers in Indigo, 3 butterflies in Daffodil and accents with the leaf/stem image in Pear Pizzazz. Ribbon a retired Daffodil Delight!

I stamped up 3 or 4 of these, put it all away, then found another whole packet so guess I'll be revisiting! Glad to be getting cards done, really need to put some in the mail!

Thanks for stopping by today! Back soon :)


March Pumpkin - No Matter the Weather

Hey, all! Late sharing this, but it's been done for a long time :) 

The March Paper Pumpkin is the anniversary one, and they gave a bonus set this year!  Let's start with the box, it was adorable!

The stamp set that goes with the kit, and the ink spot.

The wrapped kit

And the spread out contents!

The bonus set! Haven't used it yet, but I do have an idea in my head. Hopefully it works with one of the previous sets of cardstock in my room!

And finally, the finished cards!

The April kit arrived the other day. Haven't opened it, but hopefully soon. And here is a teaser for the May kit. It will feature new In Colors, not yet released!


Painted Harvest Color 3

Happy Monday all! Yes, I know there isn't such a thing :) Here is another creation with the most recent color challenge from SU! I told you I liked them! This was in my mind to try before the French Foliage one and the colors work as well here as they did there!

Remember we have Pretty Peacock, Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. This is the Painted Harvest set flowers with a saying from Rooted in Nature. Familiar layout again!

You all know this is a favorite set for me, and as I say frequently, SO Many Color Combos will work with it!! Card base here is Early Espresso, accent layer of Pretty Peacock behind a (Shimmery, non SU!) Vanilla background. I stamped the flowers first, Pool Party for the "background" petal, Pretty Peacock for the "center" petal, Early Espresso for the Flower center and dots and Crumb Cake leaves. Thinking of you also in Early Espresso. Random dots some full strength, some stamped off once. Linen thread wrapped around the left side and knotted. Edge sponged lightly with Crumb Cake.

Quick and easy! Thanks for stopping by again today!! Product details and shopping links below!


French Foliage Color 3

Morning all! Hope your weekend is going well. All is good here, getting stuff done around the house and in the stamp room :) Love it when the ideas are running around in my head!

Here is the second card I did for the 3rd SU! Color Challenge to #keepstamping.

The retired French Foliage set has always been a favorite and it's been hanging around the stamp table since the last garage sale. I happened to see it the other day and thought it would be perfect with these colors. Pretty Peacock, Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. Very happy with this one!!

I didn't necessarily want the blues to be the primary color, so I went with Early Espresso for the large leaf and started stamping. Added in the rounder leaf in Pool Party and the smaller one in Pretty Peacock. Stamped and alternated until the background was full. Then I grabbed the dots and went all over in Crumb Cake, some full strength, some off once. Once all done I put the entire background through the Subtle Embossing folder. Click to see if you can see the detail, it now looks like textured cardstock. Trimmed to size and added to an Early Espresso accent layer. The Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen ribbon was the perfect accent before adding to the Pretty Peacock card base. Tag is from the Painted Labels Die set, saying from Peaceful Moments. Attached over the ribbon with Mini Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by! #keepstamping I'll be back, I have several more cards in que! I broke into some old things yesterday and I'm having a lot of fun with this! Lots of cards to mail too! Shopping links and product details below!


Painted Thinking

A new color combo with a favorite set and card layout! Red is not a go to color for me, but every once in a while...

Created for the challenge of the week at The Color Throwdown. #ctd589 

Red, Black, Gray and White. In SU! Colors, Real Red, Basic Black (Memento ink), Smoky Slate and Whisper White. Painted Harvest set with saying from Rooted in Nature. I've done several of these cards before in a variety of colors. I had the set out for the most recent SU! Color Challenge, which I will share in a few days but I wondered if it would work for this too. Really wasn't sure if the black would be too much for the flower centers. I don't think so and really like how it came out! Card base is Real Red, Basic Black accent layer, Shimmery White background. Flowers were stamped with Smoky Slate as the "background" petal, Real Red "center" petal, Black center with dots over and Smoky Slate leaves. Also dots randomly around in varying strengths of Black and Real Red. Thinking of You in Black as well. Real Red (retired) narrow ribbon.
