Parting is such sweet sorrow. I'm always sad to see some of my favorites on the Stampin' Up! retiring list, (some are up to 50% off) but I am SO excited about the new catalog items available in June! Out with the old...in with the new. With that said, I thought I would show some samples made with some of my favorite retiring items. The first three samples have never been on my blog before.
The above sample was made using the flower from the Choose Happiness stamp set and one of the word dies from the retiring Greetings Thinlits, both on the retiring list. This was quick to create but I think it is very artsy looking.
The above sample also has the flower from the Choose Happiness set. The sentiment will be in the new annual catalog and is part of the Rose Wonder set. The embossing folder will also be returning in the new catalog and is called Fluttering. (Both are available now in the current annual catalog.)
For the above sample, I used the flower and sentiment from a current hostess set called Best Thoughts. Isn't this flower gorgeous? This is available RIGHT NOW to purchase if your order totals $150 or more (before tax & shipping). Quantities are limited of the retiring items. If you don't want to place a large order by yourself, I say get a group of friends together and place an online order with me under one name to get this stamp set before it is gone! The sample below was on a previous blog post of mine and is using the same flower. (click on photo to take you to original blog post)
I know some of you experienced some problems ordering yesterday. Stampin' Up! has been working to repair the bug causing the problem, so don't give up. I am hearing that it is much easier to place an order today.
Please use the hostess code shown in the top right corner when ordering online, unless your order will total $150 before shipping & tax. At that point, you become your own hostess and get all the rewards!
As always, let me know if you have any questions about the project or the products used. Thanks for visiting my blog.
