  • Avant Garden in Peekaboo Peach 
  • Retiring List will be announced April 10
  • Paper Pumpkin April Kit  includes free gift

Avant Garden lives on

I'm still playing with my free Sale-A-Bration goodies.  Today, I'm using Avant Garden stamp set.  I really like this simple set! 

I used the Petal Burst Embossing Folder on Peekaboo Peach.  The Whisper White piece?  Which DSP is it?  It isn't a DSP!  Nope.  Its a technique I cased from  The background is created by dragging my Peekaboo Peach marker across a piece of Whisper White!           

I added a sentiment in Basic Black on a Stitched Shapes die cut, and used the Peekaboo Peach 3/8" Ruched Ribbon.  I fussy cut the flower heads and the stems and leaves are stamped off in Old Olive 

The hand-made Whisper White and Peekaboo Peach marker piece looks slightly different each time you use this technique.  The flower heads and the sentiment are popped up on dimensionals.     

The sentiment is also from the Avant Garden set.  I also stamped the envelope using the Avant Garden stamp set.

I'm busy working on swaps for OnStage, April 8, and finishing Easter gifts using the Bunny Buddies Paper Pumpkin kit.  We know Stampin' Up! management are already setting up for OnStage in Amsterdam, and I just received a note that the Stampin' Up team going to Shreveport, LA is on their way. 

April 8 - Demonstrators attending OnStage will see the new catalog coming out June 1 along with demos of new sets and display boards with new items and samples.  OnStage event locations around the world are connected via live transmissions.  We'll see demos from other locations and hear announcements directly from Stampin' Up! Management throughout the day.  Demonstrators will be under embargo to hold this info and photos until released by Stampin' Up!

April 10 - Retiring list will be released.
We know that many retiring items will sell out quickly, so if you plan to order In Color reinkers for your retiring In Color stamp pads, or card stock, think about ordering now or within a few hours of the Retiring List release on April 10.   I always seem to get a call about a week after the In Colors have sold out from someone who waited too long to order their favorite retiring In Color. Here are the item numbers you'll need to place an order
These are the In Color 2015-2017 items we know will retire June 1 that are likely to sell out when the Retiring list is released:

April 13 - Demonstrators who didn't attend OnStage will be able to watch OnStage online.  Stampin' Up! will post videos of many of the presentations from OnStage on the demonstrator-only site.
