Affectionately Yours card and Amazige items added to Clearance Rack

  • Affectionately Yours Suite will retire May 31
  • Amazing, new retired items added to the Clearance Rack

Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper

One of the most popular suites of products from the current big catalog is the Affectionately Yours Suite (on page 44).  Although this suite is retiring on May 31, I wanted to play with it again before it goes. Also, this is a great opportunity to pick up the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper (141632) which is on sale for 30% off on the retiring list.   

I used one of the specialty papers from the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack as my main focal point.  This paper includes gold embossing, which this photo doesn't pick up very well.  However, when you hold this card in your hands, the light bounces off the gold embossing and shouts "quality!"   This paper pack also includes  one sheet of copper embossed paper, which we used for a card in our card class this past week end, and this previous card which used another paper from this Specialty Paper pack. 

I used the matching Love and Affection stamp set to stamp a flower, leaves, and the sentiment.  The DSP is matted in Night of Navy and mounted on a Mint Macaron card base.  The sentiment is stamped on a circle die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies, the banner tags were hand cut from three different papers, and a lace doily peeks out under the sentiment circle.  I added a Daffodil Delight enamel to the center of the stamped flower.


In addition to this Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP), this suite included the matching stamp set, an embossing folder, washi tape, ribbons and copper embellishments.   I'm really going to miss this stunning, dramatic suite when the current catalog retires at the end of May.

Amazing items added to the Clearance Rack 

Stampin' Up! surprised us with a number of new items added to the Clearance Rack today.  Clearance Rack items are retired products that are available at deep discount, and only available while they last.  Check out these items in the on-line store.  

One of my favorite retired items that showed up on the Clearance Rack today is the glitter ribbon pack that I used on yesterday's card.  I love this very soft ribbon because it makes puffy little bows that squash flat when mailed yet pop back to shape when the envelope is opened.  Although it shines like glitter, it DOESN'T flake all over your card.   It is a steal right now.  Originally $6.00 for the pack, it is on the clearance rack for $2.40.  Item number 142015.  Order it here.
