All good things must come to an end. And so it is with some stamp sets and accessories, as well as the 2013-2015 In Color range.
It's a little earlier than previously hinted, but that is because
the current Annual Catalogue is now retiring on the 2nd June, not the
30th as the cover indicates.
There are some items up to 50% off, and all the My Digital Studio range is 30% off, as it will be retiring at the end of May.
Remember everything is while stocks lastYou can see the retiring products here.
If you wish to purchase any of the retiring products, please email me or to to my online store.
This is a 4 seasons (in Australia) card using the gorgeous Sheltering Tree stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue. Where I live in Australia the grass goes brown in summer, and is green in winter when the deciduous trees are bare. We really don't get any snow where I live, only very occasionally (about one day every few years) it is cold enough to snow in the Adelaide hills.
I hope you like it. I've also shot some video on how I made this card, and I'll upload it to my YouTube Channel as soon as I've finished the editing.
Here are the supplies used to make this card. If you'd like to order any of them, please click on the images below.

This is another project made at our monthly get-together of my fellow Stampin Up Demonstrators.
The images from the Butterfly Basics stamp set were stamped onto Basic Black cardstock with VersaMark ink, then embossed with White Embossing Powder. They were then coloured with Calypso Coral and Old Olive Blendibilities markers. The butterfly was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock with Calypso Coral ink and cut out with the matching shape from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies. The greeting was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento Black ink.
The main panel was matted onto Whisper White, then Calypso Coral cardstock and onto a Basic Black card base.
Here are the supplies used for this project. Please note that at the time of writing, the Blendabilities markers are unavailable while a manufacturing problem is being dealt with.
Here is a card I created for my darling husband's birthday recently. It was super easy to do, I had wanted to do something with the gorgeous and funky Handcarved background stamp (wood 134051, clear 134054), and I know my husband is not into vintage trains or ships.
I looked around on Pinterest, and there aren't many ideas for using this stamp, so I decided to go "Clean and Simple". I know many people struggle with coming up with ideas for male birthday cards, so I hope this easy one gives you some inspiration. You could always add a number for an age-themed card, or a couple of brads or candy dots.
Anyway, I filmed a video of me making it, showing just how easy it is.
Just a reminder that Stampin Up has an ongoing "Weekly Deals" promotion, with different products on special each week. It's a good idea to check back every week, as you might find something that is on your wish list at a reduced price for that week only.
I shared this card with my Stampin Up Demonstrator friends at our monthly shoebox
swap get-together, where we each provide materials and instructions for a
card or other project using Stampin Up products.
This one uses the Sheltering Tree stamp set from the 2015 Occasions catalogue. The sentiment is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in the same catalogue. The colours used are Old Olive, Early Espresso and Tangello Twist. The card base is Old Olive and the panels are actually Very Vanilla, although they appear almost white.
If you'd like to learn how to make this card, I'll be teaching this one at an upcoming card class, so let me know if you are interested.
This card was shown to us by my friend Jenny at our monthly shoebox swap get-together, where we each provide materials and instructions for a card or other project using Stampin Up products.
This card uses the gorgeous Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper from the 2015 Occasions Catalogue. The flower image is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in the same catalogue, and I've also used the Hardwood background stamp on the triangle panels.
If you'd like to purchase supplies used to make this card, please go to my online store, or alternatively you may call or email me.
I've uploaded the video that shows how I created this card, using a watercolour background that I created in an earlier session. I wasn't happy with how the background came out, so I wanted to cover up most of it with a stamp, and thought this background stamp would be perfect.
I stamped the image with VersaMark and then added white embossing powder, which was heat set using my heat tool. Then I coloured in the image using ink refills and my aqua pen, and a Daffodil Delight marker for the centres of some of the flowers.
A while ago I had tried the Bokeh technique using ink refills to create a watercolour background on watercolour paper. The white circles have faded quite a bit since applying them, so it is a very subtle effect. Colours used are Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Tangello Twist.
The sentiment is from Perfect Pennants.
This is one of the techniques I'll be teaching in an upcoming class, so if you are interested, please let me know.
