Winter Woods Buffalo Check

Hey all, wanted to share a few things this week made with retiring sets. Unfortunately, I didn't check the gone list first - so sorry! Winter Woods is gone, Buffalo Check still available when I last looked. Miss the old days when stamps did not sell out :(

But I like how the card came out so I'm sharing it anyway. Didn't start my day off on the best note but I'm getting over it. And there is a wine tasting in my immediate future so all is good :)

I went through my stack of retiring stamps and decided to try the Christmas tree from Winter Woods with the Buffalo check background. Not too bad! Card base is Mossy Meadow, accent of Gray Granite. Basic White background stamped with Gray Granite Buffalo Check. I stamped the tree with Mossy Meadow and cut with the coordinating die. I then cut a Basic White Stitched Rectangle to layer behind the tree for accent. I attached the rectangle over the Gray Granite ribbon with regular adhesive. The tree is attached to the rectangle with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I accented the tree with Stella and added the saying at the bottom in Mossy Meadow. Easy Peasy! Hopefully it is still some inspiration.

Thanks all for stopping by today. I'll try to create something else that isn't already sold out! Just a few more days until everything on the Last Chance list is gone!!

In Color Flowers

Howdy all, Happy Monday! Slow start for me and I've got a full day of errands and such today. The good news is it will be very warm outside but likely very windy as well. Life in the Midwest!

I did make it to the stamp room yesterday and came out with two cards. I decided to try the new In Colors - have you seen them? So far I like them! And I grabbed a new set as well! Color & Contour. I'm such a sucker for flowers!! :)

But isn't it happy?? I managed to use all the NEW In Colors on this one. I should have taken a pic of all the ink pads so you could see them- maybe I'll add one. Card base is Fresh Freesia. Accent layer of Basic Black and Basic White background. On that background I randomly stamped the outline flower with Memento Tuxedo Black. I then grabbed the "inside" solid stamp and went over with Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink and Pale Papaya. I accented with the leaf image in Evening Evergreen and splatters in Soft Succulent - some full strength and some stamped off once. For the flower centers I grabbed the markers in Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink and Pale Papaya. I also went over the centers with Stella and added coordinating In Color Jewels. The saying is from this same set, and the scallop image is from the coordinating Die Set. **Bundle** And check out that ribbon! All the In Colors are available in this 3/8" Open Weave. The saying is attached with Dimensionals over the ribbon and I added one more flower just above.

Hey all, an update on all things SU! Then, I'm heading upstairs to play :) Should probably be working outside since its warm, but it is terribly windy out there!

First, remember that the current Annual catalog is ending VERY soon! May 3rd, 11:59 pm MT to be exact! Click the link below for the Last Chance product list and read carefully. Some items may just be reconfigured. Some are likely already sold out, some are on sale. Note also some bundles will be on the list BUT that doesn't necessarily mean the items are being discontinued, just that the bundle and 10% discount will not be continuing.

Also make note that the current Mini Catalog ends with June. One more month. Some items have made the new catalog. We should see official lists around the first of May for retiring items. There could be some carryover items that are not in the catalog, we shall see. 

Also ending with June is the Hey Chick set and dies. SU! brought this back special along with dies for the Hey Birthday Chick in the Mini. Hey Birthday Chick made the catalog along with the coordinating dies. Hey Chick did not. So, get the set and or dies NOW if you need them! *Shopping link below.

During May (4-31) join the SU! Family for the usual $99 but get MORE FREE products in your customizable Starter Kit! Its normally $125. Between May 4-31, its $155!! Awesome deal!!

I'm willing to share what I know and help in any way I can if this interests you - just ask!!

Next, some date changes. Stampin' Up! notified us last week that because of global shipping issues products are delayed getting to where they need to be, and because of that they will be pushing back both the July-December Mini Catalog and the July-August Sale-A-Bration. Customer period for the Mini will be August 3 2021 to January 3 2022. One month less than normal but hopefully that gives everything time to arrive! Sale-A-Bration will be August 3 to September 30.  Demos get access to everything one month earlier in case you need another reason to consider joining during the special! 💜

The next Paper Pumpkin is Batter Up! This kit has a throwback theme and enough supplies to make 9 cards with coordinating envelopes. Classic colors, pinwheel and pinstripe patterns and vintage-washed paper pieces with a stamp set fit for an MVP. AND, bonus, a sticky snack of the official bubble gum of the MBA!!

Lastly, those of you who have received catalogs may have noticed less Kits in there. No worries, they are NOT going away. They have moved online to allow more rotation! Check out STAMPINUP.COM/KITS. Note, if you shop my site regularly, KITS is a selection from the menu on the left! Check it out, and check back often!!

Pink Dragonfly

Hey, all - Happy Saturday! I'm off and running with a big to do list today, but first a card to share! Not at all what I started out to do, but it works and I quite like it!!

I was playing with a different (new catalog) set, but couldn't get what I wanted to work. Long story and maybe more later. I had in mind to do the "block stamping" where you ink the clear block and use that for a background. Lots of the colors I tried were not working (too dark) but then I thought of this light pink - Petal Pink. I don't use it alot and I don't know why because I always love it when I do! It was perfect for this. I inked the block and stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla that I then cut out. Over that I stamped a dragonfly from Dragonfly Garden in Soft Suede and added the friend saying at the bottom. I put some Stella on the wings and attached the image with dimensionals over the Petal Pink ribbon. Card background Very Vanilla, accent of Soft Suede and base of Petal Pink. 

Have a great weekend all! Product details and shopping links below.

Also, I'm interested in doing some Zoom chats with my fellow stampers. Just chats at this point but I am working up to a camera at my table so I can stamp and share. Let me know if you're interested and what days/times might work.
