Yesterday we found out which products from the Annual Catalog are retiring. I was surprised that some products were retiring and happy that others were not. In years past, stamp sets were guaranteed until a certain date but that isn’t happening this year. Everything is while supplies last and several stamp sets have already sold out. Many items are deeply discounted so if you haven’t had a chance, you can click HERE to head over to my Stampin’ Up! online store to see what we’re saying goodbye to!
Several products on my card today are retiring:
- Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper
- Misty Moonlight cardstock
- Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack
I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock and added a layer of Misty Moonlight cardstock that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Gingham Embossing Folder. Then I used the Tailor Made Tags Dies to cut a tag out of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and Basic White cardstock. The tags were a little too big for my card so I made them smaller by pulling the die up on the tag I already created and then ran them through my die cut machine again (see the picture below).
I used Memento ink to stamp my bird and the sentiment, both from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set, onto the Basic White tag and then used a Granny Apple Green stamp pad to stamp the grass. I colored the bird and flower with Stampin’ Blends: Balmy Blue (Light & Dark), Daffodil Delight (Light & Dark) and Light Granny Apple Green. I used Mini Glue Dot to adhere the two tags together and then used the Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine (from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack) to tie the two tags together. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Hand-Penned tag and adhered it to the front of the card. To complete my card, I added five Elegant Faceted Gems to the front.

Savings Are in Bloom Sale
This sale ends on March 31st. Some of the products in the sale are retiring and the dies are discounted but for most of them the best deal is the price in this promotion. The only exception I saw is the Garden Wishes Bundle. Both the dies and the stamp set in this bundle are heavily discounted and your better deal is to buy the stamp set and dies separately.
The products in the Art Gallery and Celebrate Sunflowers Bundles are not retiring but the bundle price will only be around until March 31st.
All the bundles is this promotion are listed below. The Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine is also on sale (the price is going up in the new catalog) so this is even better deal.
