Mixed & Crisp Thank You!


 Welcome to this brand new week, stampy friends!  

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Splitcoaststampers inspiration challenge, IC490.  Inspiration was taken from a pinterest board that features stamps ... but the pins are of 'postage' stamps.  I actually found a slight few that I have in my studio!  Since I do not have Disney-themed rubber stamps in the stampin' zone ... I had to go with florals.  Thus, I chose a retiring floral set that I'm definitely going to miss ... Mixed Bunch.


Coloring just wasn't of interest to me this day, so I opted for a stamp set that would 'do the coloring' for me.  To create some depth & contrast, the first layer of my dimensional blossom was stamped with Calypso Coral.  It's a wonderful companion to the retiring Crisp Cantaloupe.  Alas, the coordinating Blossom Punch is retiring as well.  Since all petals are the same, it's a super-easy punch to line up correctly every time.   The center of the blossom was stamped with Crushed Curry and punched with the 7/8" Scalloped Punch.  The same flower-center stamp was stamped several times on the card base ... I love it when images from a stamp set nicely double as backgrounding!


Every die on this card is retiring!  The On Film framelits are on the list, as well as the Bitty Banners framelits that so perfectly coordinate with the retiring Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.  I just might have to keep those, as the small size can be "juuuuust right" at times!

If you have favorite designer series papers ... scoop them up now, as they are retiring.  My leaves are from Confetti Celebration dsp and the framed dsp is from the Sweet Dreams collection.

 Special Reminder:  the Stampin' Up! Retirement sale includes savings of up to 50% off!

Thank you for using the April Hostess Code:  7J6PRFCM  


I hope you've found something to inspire your own creativity during your visit here today.  Thanks bunches for stopping by!

April Hostess Code:  7J6PRFCM  

Here it is!  The time has come for us to say goodbye to retiring products from the 2014-2015 annual catalog.  But before we do, we're giving everyone an opportunity to order their favorites with discounts up to 50 percent off retail. Retiring products will only be available until June 2, or while supplies last, so now's a great time to get your favorites before they're gone! 
**Note: Due to high demand for retiring stamps, we'll keep producing retiring stamps until May 26 (not accessories - accessories are only while supplies last). 

Very Cool Fact:  The official SU retiring list will be updated daily.  This means that the list will be updated daily to reflect items that have sold out and are no longer available for purchase. 

Take a look!  Have you been interested in digital scrapbook pages, personalized digital home decor, and of course, digital card making?  Check it out!  Stampin' Up!'s exclusive 'My Digital Studio' software and products are included in the retirement savings at 30 percent reduction! 

 **Please use this Hostess Code on your April orders:  7J6PRFCM
I have a special card for everyone who adds this code to their orders during April!

>>>Here's the Retiring List! <<<

And so, stampy-scrappy friends, the sale has begun!  As always, please contact me with any questions.  It's my true pleasure to assist you!
