I’m feeling rather nostalgic and more sentimental today as I look back on my 16 years as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. I can hardly believe that 16 years ago, I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.
Every year there is a set of “In Colors” that RETIRE. That means that these colours will no longer be available to purchase. This year is the collection of 2017-2019 colours that retire,
I’m so sad to see this beautiful stamp set, All That You Are, leave the Stampin’ Up! collection. Also the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards and Envelopes that form the base of this card are retiring.
Every year Stampin’ Up! brings in 5 new “In-Colours” and retires 5 colours. We get quite attached to them especially colours like the Lemon Lime Twist colour on this card.
Get the “Home to Roost” stamp set before it is gone on March 31st. I love the sayings in this stamp set as they are perfect for a quick little note on a card.
This card shows a “faux” Bokeh technique which is easy to do with the Beauty Abounds stamp set from Stampin’ Up! This stamp sets includes some circle images that have varying degrees of intensity. So simply stamping these images give the Bokeh look!
Sympathy cards are difficult to design as you need the right combination of images, sentiments and colours. The “Lasting Lily” stamp set from Stampin’ Up! is a great stamp set for sympathy cards.
