Its that time of year again. The current catalog will be expiring the end of May and the new catalog will go live in June.

What that means for you as a customer:
    https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=2013161
  1. Stamp Sets: check the retiring list.
    Once its retired its no longer available
  2. Consumables: they're only available "while supplies last"
    so order early and buy as much as you think you'll use.
    ESPECIALLY RE-INKERS AND COLORED PAPER!
  3. pricing:  Some prices will be going up, most notably on paper products. You can save a few dollars by buying in May before the new catalog goes live.
  4. Major Color Re-Vamp: Pay careful attention to the retiring list because some current colors are retiring, not just the In-Colors.
  5. New Ink Pad Design: Don't worry when you see ALL the stamp pads retiring. StampinUp has a new Ink Pad design that you're going to LOVE!!! It will be easier to open - yay!
  6. Bundles Retire after the first year, but the product might not. Read the retiring list carefully.

Sympathy Card using the Rose from Birthday Blooms

I needed to send a sympathy card today and wanted to include a poem that references a rose. The large rose from Birthday Blooms was perfect.





Here's a Tip
In this close up you can see the sparkle in the center of the flower. 

Did you know you can use a clear, Wink of Stella pen just like an Aquapainter or paintbrush.
  • Place a drop of re-inker on a non-porous  surface and water down to suit your color choice.
  • Dip just the tip of the Clear Wink of Stella pen into the color and now you can paint sparkle in any color you want.
  • Clean the same way you clean an Aquapainter, by brushing across scrap paper until the color is gone.


Product List 
These links are live at the time of posting. Depending on when you read this the product may be retired.
