Hop to it!!

Can you believe it? Summer is right around the corner (though the weather leaves something to be desired) AND the new catalogue has launched!

You've arrived from Melissa Stout on your tour of the SUDSOL blog hop. Weren't her designs WONDERFUL?? You're sure to find LOTS of amazing things on the SUDSOL website. It's a demonstrator only site and worth every penny you pay for membership. There is SO much information that demonstrators share with each other.

Check out these cool new things and create some of your own stamping happiness!


I just love, love, LOVE this new stamp set! It's called Chalk Talk and I just KNOW you're going to love it too - especially since it has a Framelit set available to cut out all those awesome shapes! Better yet? Get it as a bundle!

My second card features Soho Subway Designer Series Paper. The vintage/retro designs on this paper are wonderful to work with. That they work with my newly discovered Dynamic Duo, makes my heart sing!


Don't you just LOVE Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral together? I discovered it quite by accident thanks to one of my downline.

My card base is Crisp Cantaloupe and the small mat is Calypso Coral. The image from Label Love is stamped in Island Indigo and punched out using the coordinating punch. Just like the Chalk Talk set featured in my first card, Label Love and the punch are available as a bundle too!

If you look REALLY closely, you can see the two teeny, tiny pearls on either side of the label. I love adding those little finishing touches!

What do you think?

STAMPS: Chalk Talk, Label Love
INKS: Staz-ON, Island Indigo
PAPERS: Whisper White, Pool Party, Island Indigo, QuatreFancy DSP, Very Vanilla, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Soho Subway DSP
ACCESSORIES: Basic Rhinestones, Basic Pearls, Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Stampin'!

Retired list and much, MUCH more!!!

This post will remain sticky at the top till June 3rd, 2013. Please scroll down to see what else I've been creating.


Let's start off with the colour refresh - just to REFRESH your memory. :)

This year Stampin' UP! is retiring 10 colours (in addition to Lucky Limeade), shuffling in some current and past In Colours and adding a BRAND NEW colour! HOW FUN!!!

I'm THRILLED that 4 of the In Colours that were supposed to be retiring this year are STICKING AROUND as part of the regular colour families - ESPECIALLY Island Indigo and Pool Party. I'm pleased with the re-introduction of Pear Pizzazz - one of my all time favourite subtles. I am going to miss Not Quite Navy, but I think I'll be OK. :)

Retiring colours:
  • Regal Rose
  • Pretty in Pink
  • Bashful Blue
  • Certainly Celery
  • Baja Breeze
  • Riding Hood Red
  • Bravo Burgundy
  • Not Quite Navy
  • More Mustard
  • River Rock
Keep in mind that retiring colour product is VERY popular and Stampin' UP! made this announcement a couple of weeks ago. Some of the colours listed above are already no longer available.

And now for the retired lists:

Click HERE to get a PDF of the retiring Accessories.

The STAMPS on the retiring list will be available till JUNE 3RD!!!!!! After that date, they are gone, gone, gone!

The ACCESSORIES (wheels count as accessories) are a WHOLE other story. Once an accessory is SOLD out, it's SOLD out - that may or may not be before June 3rd. So...if there is something you particularly love, PLEASE don't wait till the last minute to order it. Once it's gone, it's gone. Stampin' UP! does NOT have a magic supply fairy. In fact, some things are ALREADY sold out!

I'll do my best to update the Accessory list as often as possible, but PLEASE be patient. This is a CRAZY time of year!

Happy Stampin'!
