Holiday Catalog Retirement List


It's that time of year again. . .  . . . Having to say goodbye to our Holiday Catalog items.   




This is a new thing to have a Retiring List for the holiday catalog.   The accessories seem to be going faster than usual so if there are some on this list you want, be sure to order them quickly.   The stamps on the list will continue to be available thru December 28th since we manufacture those.
Download the PDF for a quick reference.  Take a peek and see if there are any must-have's:
Holiday Catalog Retirement List (PDF)



Things to Remember:
  • Some other countries are having a 20% off sale on 17 select stamp sets.   The US demonstrators already had our sale for 15% off all stamps so that will not apply to me here in the states.   It can get confusing being so global now but hopefully SU will work that out and get us all on the same sale next time!
  • Orders can be placed by phone, email, or online customer or workshop order.
  • Remaining inventory for retiring products may appear later on the Clearance Rack if they don't sell out.
  • NA Note: Due to high demand for retiring stamps, we'll keep producing retiring stamps until December 28 (not accessories-accessories are only while supplies last).

Sleigh Ride Night Scene Card

Posting another of my November Class samples.    I absolutely LOVE the bundle of Jingle All the Way and Sleigh Ride Edgelits offered in the Holiday Catalog (Wood - 140861 $34.00 or Clear 140862 $29.75).    There is no end to the possibilities you have with the stamp and edgelit set.  Why not save yourself 15% and get the bundle??  :) 
I paired this bundle with the Seasons of Cheer Designer Series Paper (139590 - $11.00).   The catalog does not do this paper justice. . .  .it is GORGEOUS!!   

My Stamping Ladies LOVED this card today. They were extremely patient when making the card since there was a lot of cutting to do.   So blessed to be surrounded by these AMAZING women!  

Hope you enjoy my project!!

Best Thoughts Hostess Card - FMS190

Posting another one of my samples for my upcoming All Occcasion Stamp-a-Stack.  

I am loving this sketch posted over at Freshly Made Sketches.    I decided to make two different cards with new stamps sets from the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.    The first one is using a Hostess Set (Best Thoughts) and the second one is using the You've Got This stamp set.   
Best Thoughts:  I hand cut the butterfly and used a dimensional to make it "pop" off the flower.   I also watercolored the flower after stamping in Memento Ink (Black).  I love the Memento Ink -- it will not bleed with water or alcohol based inks. . . it's my "go to black".    

If you haven't purchased the Banner Triple Punch, it is a MUST HAVE!!    With a simple "squeeze" you can make perfect banners measuring 1", 1-1/2", and 2" wide.   Item# 138292 $23.00

Hope you enjoy my project!

Open Sea Masking Card

Almost forgot to post my last sample for my upcoming classes.   This is a modified case card from Pinterest (sorry forgot who made the original).    This card is very simple to make but just LOVE the final product.  I added a crumb cake card base where the original used Very Vanilla.   

Masking doesn't always have to be used with a stamp and/or image.   You can mask over a portion of your cardstock and sponge/stamp inside or around the masked area.  Don't you love this technique?  

I think my Stampin Ladies will really enjoy making this card.   I typically do not make two masculine cards in one class, but I just HAD to make this card.  Are you as excited as I am that The Open Sea stamp set is not retiring?!?!?  :)  They will have a choice of making it Father's Day, Birthday or Thank you card.   Another reason I like this card, very easy to change the occasion.  

Hope you enjoy my project!

Work of Art Flourishes Card

Another one of my samples for my upcoming classes this weekend.    I am adding a "quick-n-simple" card to my monthly classes.   This card should take only a few minutes to make, versitile with colors, stamps, and/or occasion.    I decided to go with my "brights" for this card; wanted to bring some sunshine to my friends day with this Thank You and Birthday card.    You can also use subtles if you are in  need of a Sympathy or Get Well card too.    

I used the sentiments from Blooming with Kindness (on the retirement list).  This is a MUST HAVE stamp set. . . if you don't have it yet I would definitely consider purchasing, you will NOT be disappointed.  I am very sad to see it go, but I will still continue making cards with it!  :)   Clear#126422 $16.95 or Wood#131961 $17.21 (on sale).  

Hope you enjoy my Project!

Guy Greetings Bow Builder Punch Card Modified Case

I saw a card that Michele Reynolds, another Demonstrator had posted and knew that I had to CASE it.   This is a modified case from her sample for my upcoming classes.    

I have fallen in love with the Guy Greeting stamp set that you can find in our Occassional Catalog.   The versatility of this stamp set is endless!!    I also love that this is a stamp set you can purchase in all 3 materials (Wood #138825; $51.95; Clear#138828 $38.95; Photopolymer #137178 $25.95).   My personal choice for this stamp was in Clear.   I mounted and put some 2-way glue on the imaged side and let it dry . . . . I don't have any issues with my stamp coming off my clear block.   

The Bow Builder Punch is super easy to use.   You just need to punch two sets from the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack and assemble.  

I hope you enjoy my Modified Case'd Project! :)
