CARD: Witty-Cisms, one last time!

I'm really going to miss this stamp set -- so many fun images, and "punny" sentiments!  This card is SUPER simple -- a single image!  I colored with Stampin' Blends this time:  Poppy Parade and Call Me Clover.  I added some Basic Rhinestones for interest:


I did this card for the AAA Challenge:

CARD: Witty-cisms

Happy Tuesday!!  Here a fun card using a set that is retiring as of June 2nd:  Witty-cisms!  It's such a fun set!  I decided to use the "thank you" sentiment/image because I need to thank so of my wonderful customers!  Anyway, the layout for this card is from the Just Add Ink sketch challenge.


I colored the image using Stampin' Write markers.  Then added some fun rhinestones on the strawberry.  The green is one of the retired In Colors:  Call Me Clover.  Be sure to get your refills and cardstock before they run out!

CARD: Itty Bitty Birthdays

Good morning!!  I spent a hour or so in my stamp room yesterday, and had some fun playing along with some challenges.  It was so relaxing!  This card is for four challenges!!  There were two color challenges this week that were basically the same:  Color Throwdown & CAS Colour Challenge.  The layout is from CASE this Sketch, and the daisy was inspired by the Just Us Girls photo challenge.

Be Back Soon!

Good morning!  Sorry for no pretty cards for you today!  My poor husband broke his ankle Monday afternoon, had surgery on Tuesday, and is now recovering!  It's been a hectic week, to say the least!  So, not much time on the computer, but I'll get back to it this weekend!!

In the meantime, be sure and check out all the Retiring Items -- available while supplies last!


Retiring List is Here!!

Last-Chance Products

Stampin' Up! has just released the list of retiring products! Now is the time to get those last items off your wish list ordered before they are gone.

Here's my Top 3 things to know about the Retirement List:

1. In Colors: All 2018-2020 In Color inks, paper, and embellishments are retiring. These items usually sell out quickly so don't forget to add ink refills and extra cardstock for your craft stash. Check out the In Color samples below for color inspiration. You don't want to miss having these bright, happy colors in your collection!

2. Stamps vs. Accessories: Retiring stamps are available through June 2nd. All other retiring items, such as paper, embellishments, and dies are only available while supplies last, so you don't want to wait and miss out.

3. Bundles: Bundles, with their 10% savings, all retire! Even if the bundle items carryover to the next catalog the discount does not so save on bundles while you can.

Happy Stamping,


2018-2020 IN COLORS
