Daisy Thank You

Daisy punch

Create quick and easy flowers with the Daisy Punch! I used this punch and our Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper to create the daisies on my card today. This punch has been on and off the backorder list since it debuted last year and it has been THE most popular punch of all time, but it’s currently in stock! 

The products used on my card that are now on the Retiring List and only available while supplies last are:

Our Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets are a wonderful way to get adhesive on the back of words or intricate die pieces. This product is being retired from the catalog and my recommendation is to get it while you can! I used it to adhere “thanks” to my card and I personally find it easier than adding a liquid glue.  It’s available while supplies last or June 3rd, whichever comes first so grab it while you can

All the products I used can be found in the Supply List below.

  • Cut a piece of Berry Burst cardstock that measures 11″ x 4-1/4″.  Score at 5-1/2″ and fold in half.  
  • Cut a piece of Highland Heather that measures 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Attach to the front of the card.
  • Cut a piece of Balmy Blue that measures 5″ x 3-3/4″.  Place it inside the Soflty Falling Embossing Folder and run it through the Big Shot. Place on the front of the card. 
  • Punch out four daisies using the Daisy Punch and Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper. To make one flower, stagger two daisies together and place a Stampin’ Dimensional between them.  Place a small amount of Multipurpose Glue to the underside of one daisy, in the middle of the flower, and place it towards the bottom of the card (see photo).  On the other daisy, add a Stampin’ Dimensional in the middle and attach to the front of the card. 
  • Cut two circles using the 1/2″ Circle Punch in Highland Heather and Balmy Blue.  Add a small amount of glue to the back of each circle and attach to the middle of each flower.  
  • Attach a small piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to Highland Heather cardstock. Place the word “thanks” from the Well Written Dies on top of the Highland Heather cardstock and run it through the Big Shot. Take off the adhesive sheet and place “thanks” on your card. You’re done!

Retiring Products


Big Shot

Needlepoint Nook

Can I just say how very happy I am that the Layered Leaves embossing folder is NOT retiring!! Yay!!  I used it on today’s card and I’m just so pleased that I can continue to  share cards using it.

Three products on my card are now on the retiring list: (more…)

Another Project Kit Card

Share What You Love Designer Series Paper

Yesterday I shared one of my Project Kits and today I have another one! Both cards were made using the same layout and Share What You Love Designer Series Paper. To see yesterday’s card and my explanation as to what a Project Kit is (I send them out as a thank you), please click here for that post.  (more…)

Clarification of Retiring Lists

I want to apologize for any confusion concerning the Retiring Lists.  It appears that many stamp sets are retiring and that isn’t the case.  Because we are transitioning to cling mount stamps, all stamp sets in wood and clear mount are on the retiring list when in fact some of them are returning in cling form.

Stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first). (more…)

Stampin’ Up! Retiring Lists Are Here!

Retiring List

You can now see which products are being retired from the Stampin’ Up! Annual & Occasions Catalogs. Everything is while supplies last so get your favorites now. In the past, all the retiring In Color products have flown off the shelves! All retiring stamp sets have guaranteed availability until May 24, 2019 but everything else is while supplies last!  (more…)

Project Kit Thank You

Treat Time stamp set Stampin Up

Before I share today’s card I want to let you know that Stampin’ Up! will be releasing a list of everything that will be retiring from the Occasions and Annual Catalogs this afternoon. Once I have the list, I will post again right here on my blog.  If you receive updates via email when I post to my blog, you won’t be notified until tomorrow (that’s just the way the system is set up) so if you want to see the list as soon as you can, please check back here later today!  (more…)

Special Big Shot Offer

On Tuesday I announced that the Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer will not be in the new Annual Catalog debuting on June 4, 2019.  A new die cutting system is on the horizon but it’s unknown when a new machine will replace the Big Shot.  A new trimmer is in the works but again, we don’t have a date as to when a new one will be available.

What This News Means To You

  • Dies and embossing folders could sell out! Until the retiring list comes out on April 15th at 1:00 MT,  we won’t know what’s being carried over into the next catalog but in the meantime, a die or embossing folder that you’ve had your eye on could sell out.  I found out yesterday that the Stitched Shapes Framelits have sold out and have been discontinued.  At this point I don’t know if that means they will be returning and made to the new suppliers specifications or whether they are gone for good.  Again, if there are any dies or embossing folders that you love, please purchase them now so you aren’t disappointed!
  • You can still purchase the Big Shot and accessories but only while supplies last. The cutting plates are currently on backorder but as of this minute, you can still order them and they will ship when they reach the warehouse. 
  • You can still purchase the Stampin’ Trimmer, while supplies last!  BUT  replacement scoring blades and the replacement mat have sold out and new stock will not be ordered.  Cutting blades are still available as of right now.  
  • You will be able to purchase new dies and folders in the Annual Catalog debuting on June 4, 2019. 

Big Shot

If you follow me, you know that I LOVE my Big Shot.  I will continue to use mine and share projects using it until Stampin’ Up! debuts a new machine in the future. The Big Shot will be available until June 3, 2109 or while supplies last.

Anyone who purchases a Big Shot in my Stampin’ Up! online store will receive the Country Floral Embossing Folder from me.  The embossing folder will come directly from me and will not be included in your package from Stampin’ Up!

Stampin’ Up! Die Cutting and Embossing Product Line Changes

TWO major announcements were made this morning! Please know that Stampin’ Up! always strives for high quality products so I believe these changes will be good for all of us! 

Big Shot:  Before I begin with this announcement please know that die- cutting is not going away, it’s just being improved! Whew!!!

Stampin’ Up! is making some big changes to their die-cutting and embossing product line.  They are transitioning to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This will allow them to work directly with the factories who manufacture their dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives them greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. Unfortunately there have been some challenges and setbacks along the way and because of this, a die-cutting & embossing machine will not be offered in the 2019–2020 annual catalog.  (more…)
