Retiring List Released!

Stampin' Up! has released the Retiring List (see it here).  So many stamp sets, dies, embellishments, etc are going away. That makes me sad.  Some of my favorites are leaving.  Many items are up to 50% off and they will go quickly.  All of the 2015-2017 In Color items will go in a flash.  If there is anything you want, you should order immediately because when they are gone, they are gone forever!  All items are as supplies last!

OnStage Savannah

I just returned from OnStage Savannah--one of Stampin' Up!'s events that they hold twice a year.  The main event was in Amsterdam and then there were local events throughout the continents that didn't hold the main event!  At this event I received the new annual catalog (you'll be able to shop that catalog beginning June 1).  We saw the new In Colors and I received 3 new stamp sets plus additional goodies.

I thought I'd share some of the swaps I received--just a sneak peek as I need to catalog each card to give credit to the makers


There were some beautiful cards there as well as some 3-D items.  I'll be posting more cards and items later.

The Retiring List is coming out later today.  I'll post a link to it as soon as it's available.  You'll want to make your purchases immediately as many items will sell out quickly--especially the 2015-2017 In Color items!

Day at the Beach Swap Card

For my second general swap card for OnStage Savannah, I wanted a birthday card that was summery.  And what's better than flip flops and a beach umbrella?  A plus was that I got to watercolor!



I'm always happy when the weather is warm enough to wear flip flops!  I'm heading to the beach at the end of May and can't wait!

I'm loving these watercolor pencils.  I'm really hoping that Stampin' Up! will have more colors in the new annual catalog that comes out in June!

Happy Stamping!

Moon Baby Swap Cards

For part of my OnStage Savannah swaps, I decided to use the Moon Baby stamp set.  I wanted a card where the moon baby would swing freely from stars at the top of the card.  I made them in both pink and blue because I can always use baby cards!


Here are the two cards separately


You can find details and printable instructions here

Happy Stamping!  I'll be posting my other swap card in a couple of days so check back!

Thank You!

I would just like to say "thank you" to all of my amazing customers for your orders and support during Sale-a-Bration.  This was the best year yet!

Fun Fan Fold Swap Card for Savannah OnStage

I joined an organized swap for OnStage Savannah and decided on this fun fan fold card.



This was a fun card to make but a bit labor-intensive.  You can get all the details and printable instructions here


Here are two other photos to show you how this card looks opened out.


I am working on additional swaps for general swapping (generally just card fronts).  I've gotten 40 done so far and want to do an additional 30 using a different stamp set.  I'll post those when I am done.



Happy Stamping!
