Simple Dragonfly Gaden Card using Dragonflies Punch


  • Dragonfly Garden
  • Dragonflies Punch
  • Up to 75% off --Last Chance 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Sale
I simply haven't played with Dragonfly Garden enough.  This is such a wonderful stamp set with a coordinating punch--called Dragonflies Punch--for any level stamper.  The Dandy Garden 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper pairs so well with the images in the stamp set.  I heat embossed the flower image from the stamp set onto the Misty Moonlight cardstock, and stamped one of the dragonfly images on Basic White. Then, I used the Dragonflies Punch to punch it out.  Isn't this a lovely card?        

Floral Thank-you greeting card using the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

The basecard for this card is Misty Moonlight Cardstock.  Then a layer of Dandy Garden 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper.  The image layer is also Misty Moonlight Cardstock with a Basic White mat.   

Dragonfly Greeting Card using Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set

The flower image from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp set was stamped using Versamark in.  Then I stamped one of the dragonflies form the stamp set using Misty Moonlight ink onto Basic White cardstock and punched it out using the Dragonflies Punch.  The sentiment is also stamped in Misty Moonlight ink and die cut using one of the dies from the the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set. Order items to make this projects from my Stampin' Up! shopping site  24 X 7.

2020-2021 Annual Catalog Last Chance Sale

The 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Last Chance Sale started 24 March, and runs until 3 May or until items sell out.

You've probably seen the announcement of the Last-Chance Products Sale going on right now before the new 2021-2022 Annual catalog is released to customers on May 4.  And, you probably have one or more of these Last-Chance items on your wish list.  With discounted prices on many items, now is the perfect time to buy. 

The new 2021-2022 Annual catalog will carry many new items, so that means several of our favorites will retire.  Also, some on the retiring list will remain in the catalog, but reconfigured.  For instance, Tear & Tape is on the retiring list, but it will be included in the new annual Stampin' Up! catalog, reconfigured.  Also, you'll see many bundles on the Last-Chance list of retiring items, but many of these items will carry over as separate items -- without the 10% savings enjoyed when purchasing them as bundles in the current catalog.  This means, you'll want to pick them up at the bundle pricing now rather than waiting until the new catalog is release.  

A few of my favorites that will retire include the Dog Builder Punch, The World Map Dies--perfect for masculine graduation or birthday cards--, and Brass Foil Sheets.

Sale: $10.80

Price: $18.00

Sale: $7.75

Price: $31.00

Sale: $4.00

Price: $5.00

As a reminder: 
  • Select items in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog will be discounted
  • During this promotion, purchasing bundle items separately can sometimes result in a cost savings
  • Note that while some bundles are on the Last Chance list, they will carry over to the next annual catalog as separate items.  Pick them up at Bundle prices now!
  • Retiring items are available while supplies last
  • No minimum purchase is required
  • Many items will sell out fast; check my online store for the most up-to-date listing of available items.  Items that sell out are removed from the on-line store.

These are great deals, so the Last-Chance Products Sale is the perfect time to shop. 

Here's where you can download a copy of the complete Last Chance List.  I download the Excel version of the list, and then take a marker to my copy of the current annual catalog and I mark all of the Last Chance items that will retire, and then use my marked-up catalog as a fast reference.  I then sort the Excel list in alphabetical order, and use the sorted list to easily pull my retired items from my craft room shelves so I'm only showing my customers current items when the new catalog arrives.  It also means I know which items to purchase from the Last Chance list before they are gone.  

Download the Last Chance Lists today.  However, my online store is the most up-to-date inventory of Last Chance items.  The lists are in BOX, and you can get a free account if you don't already have one:

See the asterixis at the bottom of the Last Chance Lists you download for a key on reconfigured items, bundles that will carry over as separate items in the upcoming annual catalog, etc.   Take a look at the Last-Chance items, and  place your order today.
