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!

I received this awesome card from my upline, Linda Bauwin.  

She used the Brushed Gold Cards & Envelopes (a favorite product of mine) and embossed the card front and envelope flap with an embossing folder.  Just love the simplicity of this card but the brushed gold card base gives it a wow factor.  

Reminder:  The 2023-2024 Annual Catalog and the 2024 January-April Catalog both retired on April 30, 2024...  Along with the 2022-2024 In Colors

2022-2024 In Colors

Stock up on Ink Refills, Cardstock and coordinating ribbons before they are gone.  As of this post, everything is in stock.

Beautiful card made with Poetic Expressions Suite

One of favorite suites in the January-April 2024 mini catalog is called Poetic Expressions.  And believe it or not, it is not because of the stamp set.  The designer series paper and dies are what sets this suite apart for me.  The paper is gorgeous and not only do the dies cut out stamped images, but it has the most amazing label dies!  Two different shapes at that.  

I think this is a simply beautiful card that would be easy to create in multiples.  Lets take a look...

Don't forget to stamp a little something on the inside...

Quick and Easy Background Technique

I have a great share today on creating a quick and colorful background.  It is so easy and I don't know why I do not do this more with my card projects. 

All you need are two or three ink colors and Blending Brushes.  As you can see in the photo below, it looks like a hot mess after color is applied to basic white card stock.  But start adding stamps, die cut images and embellishments, and boy it comes to together in a cool way. 

#creativecardcloset #backgroundtechnique

The hot air balloon card is Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight inks blended onto basic white, so just two colors for that one.  The stamp bundle is called Hot Air Balloon, but there is a whole product Suite called Lighter Than Air that is worth checking out.  The final touch for the pictured project is adding some Iridescent Foil Gems.

The other card was created by blending three inks onto basic white; Lost Lagoon, Azure Afternoon and Blackberry Bliss.  Who would have thought about putting those all together!  The stamps and dies are both called Rock Star.  The final detail was taking our Water Painters and splashing the background with water.  

One of the helpful parts of creating projects like these is using the New Glass Mat!  

#creativecardcloset #glassmat

The clean up of the blending of colors and the spritz of water on the above two projects, is made so easy with the glass mat and cleaning cloth!!!  I was amazed. 

You can get the Glass Mat Now (includes silicone tray and cleaning cloth) until February 29, 2024 included in your starter kit when you Join My Team!  

This is a Sale-a-Bration special and sold separately for $60 starting in March 2024.  

If you would like to Join My Team, and do not want the glass mat, you can pick $30 of any product of your choosing. 

***Want to know another perk of joining my team?  The projects and technique shared today came from Stampin' Up!  That's right, they share with us all the time and I am so grateful that they do.

Delicate Forest Pop Window Pane Card

I am too excited to share this card made with the Delicate Forest Bundle from the Jan-April 2024 Mini Catalog.  

#creativecardcloset #delicateforest  2

I did a standard Basic Black card base.  Then, cut another piece of Basic Black at 5-1/4 x 5-1/2 for the Pop Window Pane.  Here is how I scored:

Pop Window Pane Card

  • The two outer score lines are valley (in) folds and the two inner score lines will be mountain (out) folds. 
  • The background is Basic White cut 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 and colored with Blending Brushes and ink colors, Balmy Blue, Pool Party, and Pretty Peacock.
  • The images are Heated Embossed with Gold powder.
  • The butterfly is from the Paper Butterfly Accents, covered in VersaMark ink and then Gold Embossed

Here is a side view to see more of the dimension.  Click on the image to enlarge.
