We are in the last couple of weeks for the Stampin UP! 2018 – 2019  annual catalog which means that stamp sets and other products will be retiring and there are some of my favorites among them.  So I am going to use my blog posts to share some of the things that are retiring – along with links so that you can put in your order so you don’t miss out.

Today’s card uses 2 stamp sets, unusual for me I know, but they are both retiring and both deserve being showcased, Friendly Expressions and Stylish Christmas – but it is not a Christmas Card!

Stamparatus Technique ~ Set Back Stampin’ Video Tutorial

It is a while since I shared a technique using the Stamparatus and today I have one called Set Back Stampin’ using the Petal Palette Stamp set with the coordinating Petals and More Thinlet Dies.

The Stamparatus is Stampin’ UP!’s latest tool  and an absolute must have for all stampers.  It helps you perfectly align your stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and accurately and gets complete ink coverage – ‘cos you can do a ‘do-over’ as my video today will show.

Narrow Notecards with Tropical Escape DSP

A few days ago I shared a gift card holder featuring the Tropical Escape DSP, to make them I had to trim down the 6 x 6 sheets and was left with some strips that were just begging to be used!  I was also ready to make my ‘thank yous’ for my lovely customers who had shopped for their Stampin’ Up supplies with me during March ~ so paired up my little strips with the super cute Narrow Notecards & Envelopes

Abstract Impressions Thank you

This card proved to be a big hit at a recent card buffet I had – I started with cutting 20 kits and must have made up an additional 20 so everyone had a chance to make at least 1!

Saying thank you is so very important,  it was one of the first things my dear Mum taught me – I know because I watched her do the same for my younger brother and sister and when it came to her being a grandmother she always reinforced it with the ‘littlies’ as they came into our lives!

The Abstract Impressions Stamp set has a lovely ‘Thank You’ as well as stamps that allow you to build up beautiful floral displays using single or two step stampin’.

Home to Roost with Grapefruit Grove Foil ~ Free from Stampin’ UP!

Today I am pairing 2 of the Sale-a-bation items onto one card.  The Home to Roost stamp set has proven to be a  very popular choice, due mainly I think to that very handsome rooster stamp.  If you really look at the set though it has 4 very useful greetings as well as a ‘bunch of grasses’ which are so very peaceful looking.
