Hope your week has started well. I’ve been having a bit of a tidy up in my craftroom – making some space for new goodies which have arrived! Can’t wait to get to play!
But first let’s keep focussed on the retiring products – time is running out. I had a plan of which cards I was going to share – but already more of the products have sold out! My advice is if there is anything on the list that you are keen on then get them from the online store – products are while supplies last. Check what is still available HERE
My first card today that shows a retiring product is this masculine birthday card – and yes it also features the ever-popular Sassy Salutation!
I have used the Clockworks stamp set on several cards for men over the last couple of years – I’ve loved how all the individual stamps can be positioned in various ways to give so many different images and background effects – really versatile. I’ll have to find a new fav masculine set in the new catty – I already have a couple on my radar! I’m pleased the Argyle embossing folder and Early Expresso Bakers Twine are staying.
Next card up is this pretty flip card made with the Label card thinlits – which make it into the catalogue this year – yay! These thinlits are great to make a card with a WOW factor in a quick and easy way. The DSP on the card is Soho Subway DSP which had a great variety of papers in the set making it a go to set for all sorts of cards. Now it’s going – along with all the current DSP. Did you notice that I’ve used a different birthday sentiment? This one is from Remembering your Birthday which has several birthday greetings – including a Belated one!
While the little pearls ( Basic Pearls Jewel Accents ) will be in the new catalogue, all three components of the other embellishment will not be. The embellishment is made by layering a Large Pearl Basic Accents on top of mid-sized button from the Natural Designer Buttons which are placed on a folded piece of Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon.
Remember all cardstock, ink pads, Stampin’ Write Markers, ink refills etc for the five 2012 – 2014 “In-Colors” are leaving us at the end of the month – Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple will retire. I think Midnight Muse was favourite from the group and will miss it. I am pleased that I have My Digital Studio (MDS) – colours don’t ever retire in the digital design software – so I can always get my fill of any colours there! You can download a free 30 day trial of MDS if you’d like to give the programme a try out.
I’ve also used the Very Vintage jumbo wheel on the card and the envelope in Summer Starfruit Ink. I was a little stunned, and very saddened to see the entire wheel product line is retiring at the end of this catalogue! This is a product line I will really miss – I love wheels!
The last card I’m sharing today is a baby card. Most of the baby cards I’ve made over the last two or three years have used the gorgeous Baby Tees wheel – now sold out. I’ll be adding the Baby Tees digital download to my next order I think. But I digress – the card below uses another cute baby set that is retiring – Sweetest Gift.
I’ve been enjoying looking back at some cards from the past – hope you are enjoying them too. And remember if you see a set that is on the retiring list order it before it’s … going, gong, gone! Check out all the products that are leaving HERE
Until next time
