I’ve loved using the Perennial Postage stamp set and unfortunately it’s retiring (but the Perennial Postage Dies are not but they are currently on the Low Inventory List). It’s a great stamp set with a variety of sentiments! Today I’m sharing a card that was in my recent Flowering Zinnias Card Sampler and uses the Perennial Postage stamp set. This is the only retiring product on my card today. The Perennial Postage Bundle is still available (as of this writing). When you purchase a bundle, you save 10%).




I started with a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock for the base of my card (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). Then, I embossed two pieces of Basic White cardstock using one of the Fun Patterns Embossing Folders (these embossing folders are an Online Exclusive and won’t be found in any catalog) and then adhered them to the front of the card. 




I cut another piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and layered it with a piece of Flowering Zinnias Designer Series Paper (another Online Exclusive product).  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 




I stamped my sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set Perennial Postage (retiring). I then cut it out using the Stylish Shapes Dies.  I cut a larger circle, using the same dies, out of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to the larger Blackberry Bliss circle, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.

Mystery Boxes Are Still Available



What’s a Mystery Box? 

I offered Mystery Boxes last year but I still have SO MUCH retired Stampin’ Up! product in my home and I’d like to give it all to a new home. I’ve been a demonstrator for almost 15 years so you can just imagine how much I have! I have Medium Rate Flat Rate USPS shipping boxes stuffed with retired Stampin’ Up! product.The boxes contain Designer Series Paper, stamps, dies, ribbon, embellishments and more! The boxes are already sealed and every box will be different and a mystery as to what’s inside! The value of each box is well over $200. 

All of the products in the Mystery Boxes have retired but some have never been used, some are used and all are “as is”. Some of the stamp sets are wood mount. 



There are two ways to get a Mystery Box

  • Place a $125 or more order (before shipping/tax) at my Stampin’ Up! online store using the host code HS2RTGAS. I will send a Mystery Box to you as a free gift and I’ll even pay the postage! Using the host code will alert me that you want a Mystery Box. If your order is $150 or more, please DO NOT use the host code so you can receive Stampin’ Rewards (free product) directly from Stampin’ Up!. After you’ve placed your order (only if your order is $150 or more), please email me that you’d like a Mystery Box (click “Email Me” on the sidebar).
  • If you don’t want to place an order, you can purchase a Mystery Box for $80 plus $15.00 postage. Email me that you want a box and I’ll send you a PayPal invoice (click “Email Me” on the sidebar).
