There are only 6 days left of the current catalogs!
This is such a bittersweet time. I am so sad to see some of my favorite items retiring into the sunset, but at the same time, I am so very excited to share the new catalog, and all of it's goodness with you!
Here is a card I made with three stamp sets I love, that are retiring. To make this card, I started with a Thick Whisper White cardstock base. I stamped the skid mark stamp from Gorgeous Grunge (what will I do without this set?!?!) in Basic Black. I stamped my Petite Petals flowers in Watermelon Wonder and punched them out. I laid out my flowers where I wanted them, so I would know where I wanted to stamp my leaves. The leaves are from Affectionately Yours, and are stamped in Mint Macaron. Once the leaves were stamped I attached my flowers with dimensionals, and added rhinestones to the centers. (The Rhinestones are discontinued, but do not fret! They have been reconfigured, and will be available in the new catalog.) My greeting is also from Affectionately Yours, and was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. I am not sure how to accurately express the sadness I felt when I saw my coveted Hot Dog / Hamburger punch on the retiring list. Surely, classes will never be the same.
As sad as it is for things to retire - this is a needed clearing, so that we can make way for new exciting things!
This fun card was made using some of the new products coming out in just 6 days! The Colorful Seasons Product suite has things to offer to paper crafters of all types. On this card you can see some of the images from the Colorful Seasons stamp set. This card also shows the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack. I am so very excited about this new memory keeping system that Stampin' Up! is introducing. The last new product featured on this card is the Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon. This new ribbon is so soft and pliable, and comes in three different colors.
Alright, that is all I have to share for today. Come back tomorrow for another countdown post, full of sadness and joy all at the same time. :)
Hope you have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by!
