Stampin’ UP! Blooms In Windows for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a Color challenge and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

Now, our color scheme really called out for the Happiness Blooms suite, and I went smack dab with the subliminal suggestion!  I used the Bloom By Bloom (retiring!) stamp set, and paired it with a simple sentiment from Fabled Friends (carrying over – YEAH!) to create a spring-y Easter card.  Take a look-see:

And, although I feel sure you can figure it out, here’s our color scheme –

I borrowed a layout from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with some Call Me Clover paper from the Happiness Blooms DSP and double-matted it on Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral for the card front.

My art is from the Bloom By Bloom set.  I used my Stamparatus so that I could stamp the same image mulitple times.  First I inked the small flower stamp with Pineapple Punch, then I used a Sponge Dauber to add some Calypso Coral around the edges.  I made three of these flowers and cut them out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits square die.

I cut three Pineapple Punch mats with a scalloped Squares Layering Framelits die and adhered them all together to create three matted art pieces.

I used my Stampartatus again to stamp the little sentiment from Fable Friends in Call Me Clover on what would become the middle art square.

I popped each square onto a strip of Calypso Coral card stock with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhered the whole thing to the card front with Liquid Glue.

A Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot or three finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a few more Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral flowers from the Bloom by Bloom stamp set, plus a couple Call Me Clover leaves, to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pineapple Punch and Calypso Coral mat, then into my Call Me Clover card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Bloom by Bloom flowers and leaves on the front…

…and the envelope flap got more Happiness Blooms DSP!

Et Voila!  I do love this sweet Bloom by Bloom flower set and the colorfully cheerful Happiness Blooms DSP – and you’re going to want to get them added to your stash before they retire!  Fable Friends is an awesome stamp set – perfect for Spring and Easter cards – and I’m tickled it made it into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  I hope you like!

The Annual Catalog Retiring Products lists shows the updated list with the current stamp sets that will be carrying over to the new catalog (just in cling-mount rather than clear-mount or wood-mount) highlighted in gray.

Here is the updated lists – the Occasions Catalog list hasn’t changed – just the list for the Annual Catalog! 🙂

2019 Occasions Catalog Retiring Products

UPDATED 2018-2019 Annual Catalog Retiring Products

Or…click these links to go to my Online Store for the most up-to-date information!

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!

Carryover Clear-Mount and Wood-Mount Stamps

There are stamp sets that are currently offered in clear-mount or wood-mount (in the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog), that ARE carrying over – but are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

These transition sets that will be in the 2019–2020 annual catalog –  will continue to be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).  If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Click here to see the list of stamp sets that ARE carrying over as Cling sets. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! New Sales, New Bags, New Products!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  This is a somber day in many regards – a National Day of Mourning for President G.H.W. Bush.  I wish I was going to be able to watch the ceremonies taking place in our Capitol today, but…I’ll be driving to Kentucky.  I’ll have to catch it on the replays.  I’m mourning him in my heart.

On a different front – there’s some big happenings in the Stampin’ Up! world today!  We’ve got the End-of-Year Sale starting today! We’ve got the Craft & Carry Stamparatus Bag available to you NOW!   And – we’ve got a special, limited offering – only for customers of demonstrators in select areas.  Read on, my peeps!!

The Year-End Closeout is our chance to do a little inventory cleaning—and your opportunity to take advantage of special year-end deals on retiring and surplus items.  During this promotion, you’ll be able to save on a selection of retiring and surplus items— and some are “last-chance” and limited inventory.  I suggest you place your orders sooner rather than later, because supplies are limited and the YearEnd Closeout ends on 2 January.  After that, some of your favorite retiring items may be gone for good!

Here’s the deets:

  • No minimum purchase required.
  • Discount applies to select items only.
  • Retiring items from the 2018 holiday catalog are available while supplies last.
  • Surplus items from 2018 annual catalog are available in limited quantities at the promotional price.
  • Discounted items may be added to a Starter Kit—or purchased with Stampin’ Rewards—at the promotional price!
  • Host sets may be purchased using only Stampin’ Rewards from a qualifying party/order
  • Ordering deadlines: 2 Jan 2019 at 11:50PM (Mountain Time!)

The Year-End Closeout is broken into two categories – be sure to check out BOTH lists carefully to make sure you have everything you need before submitting your order! 🙂

RETIRING FAVORITES:  This list has all the 2018 Holiday Catalog products that will not be offered in the 2019 Occasions Catalog or in the 2019 Annual Catalog.  Check ’em all out and get them before they’re gone-baby-gone!
