Stampin' Up! Happy Tails

When you need a fast card with a dog theme, my go-to stamp set is Happy Tails with its coordinating Dog Builder Punch.  And I'm sad.  the Happy Tails stamp set is retiring June 2.  The good news is that the Dog Builder Punch will carry over to the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog coming our June 3, 2020, and you can still get the bundle pricing on this set until June 2. Another item used in today's card is the Stitched Be Mine Dies, which also appear on the retiring list.  However, these wonder dies are just being reconfigured with a new item number in the new catalog, so don't panic when you see the on the retired list.   See my Retiring List post for a full run down on stamps products retiring on May 3 as well as bundles retiring and products being reconfigured. It's all in the Retiring Products information I posted in my last post.  Order your favorites before they are gone.

I created two similar versions of the same card.  The basecard for today's card is Smoky Slate.  On one card, I dry embossed the basecard with Coastal Weave 3D embossing Folder, which will retire June 2.  On the other card, I dry embossed the background using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder, a retired Sale-A-Bration item.  Then, I used the Stitched Be Mine Dies to die cut both heart shapes.  One card I die cut form Grapefruit Grove Cardstock.  The other I die cut from Lovely Lipstick Cardstock.  Both cardstock colors are 2018-2020 In Color that will retire June 3, and can be found in the Last-Chance-Products on my online store. 

The sentiment, dog and background images are all stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  After stamping the sentiment, I cut it apart and mounted it on dimensionals before adding it to the card.  The dog was stamped and then punched out using the Dog Builder Punch.   All of the fun, stamped images are from the Happy Tails Stamp Set.   I add Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins on the Grapefruit Grove cards.  I added Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets to the Lovely Lipstick card.  I happy with the way each card turned out, and look forward to sending them to my pet-owning friends.

I know many of you are continuing to find inspirational stampin' has been a stress reliever during this challenging time.  Let's keep stampin' as we think of others who would love to know you're thinking of them.  Sending handmade cards is a great way to stay in touch when you can't be with distant loved ones, and your cards will be greatly appreciated during these times.

The new Annual Stampin' Up catalogs will be available to customers June 2, but I'm submitting my list to Stampin' Up! early tomorrow, April 30, 2020.  My customers who have purchased within the past 6 months are already on the list to be sent a new catalog sometime in mid- to late May.  If you don't have a demonstrator and want a copy of the upcoming Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, contact me.   I would love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

Last-Chance Products & Getting ready for the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog!

Get ready for the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog by organizing your craft room while your enjoying more at-home time than you're normally used to.  Download the Retiring Products Lists for the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, and the Retiring List from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.  Products are available until June 2, 2020, or while Supplies last.  Stock up on favorites before they're gone and use the lists to reorganize your supplies.  

When I come to the end of a catalog season, I like to use the Retiring lists to mark my catalogs, and then pull all my retiring products at one time.  Some that I plan to save for my own use, I'll mark with an R so I know the item is retired and I don't mistakenly use it for a class.  The rest, I begin to price so that I can begin to sell my retired items after the new catalogs are release.  Download these handy retiring lists now so you can decide how you'll handle your retiring items. You'll also want to review my earlier post on Retiring items that explains why some of the items are on the retiring lists even though they will continue to be carried in the new annual catalog for 2020-2021.
