I'm still trying to get caught up on using some of my beautiful Designer Series Papers and my Paper Pumpkin Kits before the release of the new Stampin' Up! catalog in early May 2023.  I'm playing with all my favorites, including the Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper and my Paper Pumpkin Kit  Expressions In Color  from June 2021.  I also pulled out an Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack that I picked up recently on the Stampin' Up! Clearance Rack at a nice saving.  It's still available.  Look for item #155465 | $2.80 $7.00 USD. I used the stamp set and labels from my Expressions in Color Paper Pumpkin Kit, along with precut foil designs from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera pack. I also used leaf die cuts from the Artistic Dies in Gold Foil.  I layered items on the Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper with gold accents, and used a Gold Foil matte between the designer series paper and the Evening Evergreen card base.  I finished by adding a few Gold Adhesive-Backed Sequins from the Pastel Adhesive-Back Sequin Pack. I love how easy it is to work with many different Stampin' Up! products that all work together to create lovely greeting card.

The basecard for today's card is Evening Evergreen Cardstock.  Then Gold Foil Sheets layer as a matte.  My image layer is one of the prints from the Expressions in Ink 12" X 12"  Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Next, I added elements from the Expressions in Ink ephemera Pack (currently available on the Clearance Rack).  I added die cut leaves from Gold Foil Sheets using the Artistic Dies.

To finish my card, I used one of the sentiment labels and the stamp set from my Expressions In Color June 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I stamped the sentiments in Evening Evergreen Ink, and mounted the label on Dimensionals before adding it to my card front.  Then I added a few Gold sequins from the Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins pack.

New Catalog Pricing Changes; and Get ready for Fresh New Colors 

While Stampin' Up strives to provide you with the best paper crafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality of Stampin' Up! is know for, all while being mindful of cost and other important consideration, we are all aware of the increases in costs we're seeing in today's market place. This is a heads up that price increase will impact several product categories in the upcoming new catalog.  

You'll want to consider stocking up on items such as Cardstock, Specialty Paper, Notecards and Envelopes, Ink Pads and Refills, Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Write Markers, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machines and plates, Take Your Pick products, Storage, Clear Blocks, Select adhesives, and Paper Pumpkin.  Consider purchasing a Paper Pumpkin subscription (a prepaid code) before the 2 May 2023 price change to receive current pricing on your subscription.  Order Paper Pumpkin subscriptions here:

Its that time of the year when Stampin' Up! refreshes the color line adding several new colors to keep the product line fresh.  Additionally, the 2021-2023 In Colors -- Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, and Pale Papaya -- will retire unless one or more are kept as part of the color refresh.  Demonstrators will hear about the refreshed color collection on 29 March.  That means customers will hear the details shortly thereafter.

Retiring 2021-2023 In Colors;
Order before they sell out

As soon as new colors are announced and we say goodbye to others, we often see several retiring colors sell out.  Since these products will not be restocked, now is the time to check your stock of cardstock, ink pads and refills, Blends and Markers and Designer Series Paper.  Place your order for the items you plan to continue using.
