Latte Love French Press Card


Have you seen one of our newer released Online Exclusive Suite Collections called A Little Latte (#163466)?  It is amazing!  From the dies to the Designer Paper... I just love this product suite. 

Here is a card I made using all items in the suite (stamps, dies, DSP, ribbon and embellishments).  The added beauty is Rose Gold 12 x 12 Specialty foil paper (RETIRING 4-30-24) I used to die cut the French press.  My photo does not do that justice.  I was on vacation taking pictures, hence the tree background.

My colors are Pecan Pie and Petal Pink!

Let's not forget to decorate the inside of the card...  ink up the splatter and stamp twice to get the full strength stamped image and then a second time for a lighter shade.

Only 2 Days Left to the Last Chance List of product retiring April 30, 2024

2024 Last Chance

Product List

A couple of my favorite Retiring Products - 2

Welcome back to see some of my favorite retiring products. 

Did you see yesterday's post?  I gave a list of reasons why this is an exciting of the year to be with Stampin' Up!  If you missed it, check it out HERE.  I also showed two card projects containing some favorite items. 

Today, I'm here to show you more!  So don't miss out.  Items are flying out of My Online store.  Seriously, some of the items are already gone.  I can't even order spares for my personal stock.  

Here's a great graduation card.  Now the stamp set is sticking around... is the fun confetti acetate background that is now gone.  The dazzle paper is so cool and still showing in stock.

The next card... the stamp set and dies have been a favorite of mine for awhile now.  Apparently of others too as they have been around for a bit.  But now, only the dies remain.  Bummer!

Don't miss out.  The Last Chance List of retiring products is only good until April 30, 2024 and Clearance rack too. 

Clearance Rack Refresh

A couple of my favorite Retiring Products

This is such an exciting time being with Stampin' Up!  and here are all the reasons (to me) why :

  • The "Last Chance List" has been released.  This is all items set to retire, products that won't be offer in the new catalog with the 10% bundle savings, pricing changes and a few other things.  The "Last Chance List" also offers some discounted items. 
  • Clearance Rack Refresh.  Additional items are added to the Clearance rack.  These are retired items and some offered at a great discount. 
  • Demonstrators like me have already seen the New 2024-2025 Catalog
  • Demonstrators like me have already received the New 2024-2025 Catalog
  • My Favorite:  Demonstrators like me ALREADY have New Product in hand from the upcoming 2024-2025 Catalog
  • New 2024-2025 Catalogs are making it into customers hands (ask me how if you would like one)
  • Incentive trip earners are getting ready to leave on a fabulous vacation and be spoiled rotten.  I should know.... I've been there!
  • We are less than two weeks away from the 2024-2025 Catalog launch

Now... with all that being said, I am going to share two card projects today and two tomorrow (so come back) that include some great retiring products. 

NOTE:  I apologize that I used already Retired DSP (the gingham patterned papers in both my examples)

#stampwithlisabrown #blueberrybunches

I love everything STARRY SKY but it is a 2022-2-24 In Color and is going away, along with PARAKEET PARTY (green).  I just love how the blueberries came out with this color.  Ribbon, embellishments, papers and ink are selling out fast!  I'm happy to say the Blueberry Bunches stamp set is carrying over. 

#stampwithlisabrown #sorefreshing

I hardly got to enjoy this one!  I failed to use last summer and now the So Refreshing Bundle is going away.  I think I might keep this one in my private stash.  LOL!

You Make My Heart Buzz

This cute card was a Free Make-n-Take!

Hello there.  And thank you for stopping by.   Yes, I did a Free Make-n-Take card at a recent event where I was a vendor.  I normally do that so people can see how easy it is to create a card in just a short time.  Make sure to check out my calendar for upcoming events and classes. 

I am happy as the bee in my below project... but a little sad too. Why? 

Well, our Last Chance Sale started and running through the end of April 2024.  I am happy because the Bee Builder Punch and Bee My Valentine Photopolymer stamp set are both carrying over into the new 2024-2025 Annual Catalog.  

So why am I sad?  Because the stamp set and punch will only bee (lol!) sold separately... meaning no bundle discount AND the Bee Mine 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper will retired along with the Hearts & Flowers Embellishments.  So that means that suite collection will be gone.

Let's take a look at this little Bee Card... 

#creativecardcloset #beemine #lisabrown

  • I used Daffodil Delight for my card base and stamped the honeycombs all around the edges of the card.  
  • Stamped my sentiment in the bottom left of Basic White CS measuring 3-3/4 x 5
  • Layered two pieces of the Bee Mine DSP measuring 2 x 3
  • Use a Dimensional to pop up the bee that was stamped & punched from Daffodil Delight CS, add a flower embellishment to finish it off

The Last Chance Sale runs until April 30, 2024.   You can Shop With Me and check out all the great deals!

Pink Zinnias Split Opening

Welcome back to my blog, where I love to share my projects, events and news updates regarding Stampin' Up!

Today I'm sharing a project I'm call the the Pink Zinnias Split Opening card.  If you have not seen the Flowering Zinnia Suite Collection yet, you can check it out in my online store Here.  

You can also see my two other projects I have posted:  Gratitude card and Zinnias with Sparkle

So this card is a little unexpected.  Why?  Because of the color I decided to use, and I just adore this split opening.   Let's take a look...

#creativecardcloset #pinkzinnias #lisabrown

(click on above image to get a close up look)

I used Petal Pink card stock, layers of Basic White and the Flowering Zinnias 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper.

  • I built up the flowers and leaves on Deckled Rectangle pieces
  • Two flowers colors with Petal Pink Stampin' Blends and one with Pumpkin Pie
  • The flower centers are coordinating colors with a Lemon Lolly flower ring.   I added a little Granny Apple Green highlighting with my sponge daubers. 
  • I stamped three sets of leaves with Granny Apple Green with Stampin' Blends

Using Stampin' Dimensionals, I layered the flowers to get different heights. 

Finishing the card, add several of the self-adhesive shiny sequins from the suite collection. 

Important Note:  The Sequins are on Back Order!  This will make the entire suite collection unorderable.  NOTE that everything else is still available and you can order everything separately.... Just make sure to order the stamps and dies Bundle to get the 10% discount.  I have listed everything below.
