Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack

The Come Sale Away Memories & More Card Pack will be retiring at the end of May.  Fortunately the coordinating Come Sale Away Stamp Set will be returning, but if you want the card pack which is great for making a variety of cards you better get it now before it is gone.

The card below was easily  made using one of the cards in the pack.  I just aded some coordinating layers of card stock and ribbon and my card is finished.  You get 50 total double-sided cards in the pack so there is a lot of variety to choose from.


The card pack is also on sale and the item # is 149552.

You can see all of the retiring products here at my Online Store.

Last Chance Products

Stampin' Up! is retiring products from the Annual and Occasions Catalog.  You can see the complete list HERE at my Online Store.  Some products are discounted and all products are while supplies last.  

Note:  Some of the bundles listed as retiring might be in the new Annual Catalog, but they won't be bundled to save you 10%.  

In addition, you will see the Stampin' Blends on this list as well.  In the next catalog blends will only be packaged in pairs of light and dark, therefore, the numbers for the blends will be changed.

Ornate Garden Designer Series Pape

When the paper is so pretty you can use it to create the front of your card.  I took a piece of the new Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper and cut it to make the layer on my card.  

I placed the pieces onto a piece of Terracotta Tile Designer Series Paper that I embossed with the new Ornate Floral Embossing Folder.  A ribbon of 1/4" Terracotta Tile was placed next to my sentiment that was embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.  

You can get the products in the Ornate Garden Suite early.  These products will be in the next Annual Catalog that goes live in June but are available now.  You can see them all here at my Online Store.

Welcome Easter

 I want to wish everyone a very Happy Easter.  I know this year it will be really different for most people since churches are closed, visits with family are cancelled, and spending the Holiday without our loved ones will be hard, but I sent all of my grandchildren their own Easter Card letting them know I was thinking about them, and to let them know their Easter Baskets will still be delivered on time, even if we can't have physical contact yet.

I thought the cute bunny in the Welcome Home Stamp Set would be a welcoming card to show them that they can still be happy that Easter is here and they are still surrounded by love.

The cute little chick and lamb in this stamp set are really nice too, and you can also use the set for baby cards as well.  I find that stamping and keeping busy at this time are really important to me and if I can send a little bit of sunshine through the mail I am happy to do it.

Hopefully you can find a way to enjoy your day and rejoice in the meaning of Easter and that we will be back to getting together to create soon.

Welcome Easter Stamp Set #151559 - $20.00

Clubhouse - Masculine Cards

If you struggle sometimes to come up with ideas for masculine cards, the Clubhouse Stamp Set and coordinating Golf Club Dies can help.  You can purchase the whole Country Club Suite that gives you even more options, or just the stamp set and dies together to save you 10%.

The Designer Series Paper made a great layer on the front of my card, and I made this card for a birthday, but it would also work for Father's Day or retirement.

Early Release of the Ornate Garden Suite

The Ornate Garden Suite, which will be in the new Annual Catalog that starts in June, has been released early by Stampin' Up! to give you a head start on creating with these new products.

You can see all of the products in the suite by going here to my Online Store.

Here is a card I made using some of the products.

I used a piece of the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper for my layer, and cut out the frame with an Ornate Layers Die.  I used Gold Foil to make it stand out, tied on a piece of Old Olive 1/4" ribbon, and added some Gilded Gems for a bit more embellishment.

My sentiment is from a current set in the Annual Catalog called Rooted in Nature and was stamped in Mint Macaroon Ink to coordinate with my paper. 

The frames are really elegant and you will get 8 different sized dies that will add a nice touch to any of your cards or projects.
