Latest Stampin’ Up! Projects with Retiring Stamps

I’ve been playing!  A lot!  I recently had foot surgery which forced me to sit around, plus I had lots of thank yous to get out to all my friends that brought me food and birthday cakes, etc.  I couldn’t just make one card and duplicate it. No! 🙂 I had to make several different cards because I had too many ideas rolling around my head.

Here’s just a few of the thank you notes I made with the note cards. Tomorrow, June 2nd, is the last day of the current catalog and the first day of the new catalog.  That means both catalogs are available for one day only!

Important notice!  My Digital Studio is being discontinued as of June 2nd.  All content is 30% off.  Make your purchases, and download and back up your content now.

Below you’ll find a link to all the stamp sets and some of the products from which these cards were made.  Have questions?  Email/call/text me!  julie at stampingjulie.com

Starburst Sayings Graduation Card

starburst-graduation-card2

My nephew is graduating from high school in Franklin, Tennessee, and my son-in-law is graduating with his MBA from Boise State this month.  Unfortunately, I’m missing both! Instead, I opted for foot surgery!!

Since I didn’t make it to the graduations, I sent these note cards with a little spending cash.

The Starburst Sayings stamp set and Starburst Framelits are retiring this month!  Seriously!  Pout-pout! But you can still get them together in the money saving Starburst Sayings bundle.

The large starburst is stamped in Real Red and the smaller starburst is embossed in gold.  A little black and white washi tape behind brings it all together.

I’m obsessed right now with mixed media art.  I’ve been watching lots of video tutorials and can’t wait to get back upstairs to my craft room to try out some of my newly studied techniques.  I’ll share some of my favorite videos with you soon.

Actually, I’m just art obsessed!  Recently, I purchased a couple of oil paintings from a friend who’s an amazing, award-winning artist.  Check out her website: http://krystalbrownfineart.com/

The Big Shot Is….

A SUPER STAR!!!

For the Birds Blendabilities stampingjulie.com

Every project…EVERY PROJECT…is improved with the Big Shot!

Imagine these adorable birds on a background of So Saffron without those perky little chevrons…or on a rectangle instead of this fun little tag.  How did I make these things happen?   THE BIG SHOT! 

The big shot is a work horse.  I’ve had mine for years and with doing stamp classes, I’m sure I use mine much more than the average stamping enthusiast.  And it just keeps cutting and texturing.

This month you can get a free stamp set and framelits bundle (including the framelits I used to crop out the tag above) with your purchase of the big shot.  That’s nearly half off the big shot!  That’s a BIG deal!

There is no time like now to invest in this great tool.  And I love the sleek black look of the Stampin’ Up! Big shot.  It looks great in any craft room.

Something to Say Coastal Cabana Thank You Card

something to say coastal cabana thank you stampingjulie.com

Do I have something to say?

Always.




Almost always.  But what’s the most important thing to say behind “I Love You”  and “I’m Sorry?”

“Thank you.”




Is that the order you would put it in?

Look at these adorable flowers?  Can you imagine fussy cutting those flowers out?  I can’t…and I didn’t.  The secret….a coordinating punch.  Can you say “woot, woot?”

I used the Coastal Cabana blendabilities to paint the flowers.  If you look closely you can see that I also used a little Rich Razzleberry also in the center.  I love combining a couple of colors to add some interest.

A little bit of Silver Sparkle Dazzling Diamonds  in the center of the each flower adds the obvious – sparkle.

Chalk Talk Thank You

A Chalk Talk Thank You and Missed Opportunities

Chalk Talk Thank You

What happens when you create, and create, and you take pictures and you don’t share them?

This…

      … a Chalk Talk thank you card that includes great stuff that you can’t get anymore.

Big bummer!

All is not lost…lots of great stuff on this card that is still available…but it could be gone too eventually.

Moral of the story?

          …I’ll leave that up to you.

I love the Apothecary framelits I used to trim the layers of the tag.  And…BONUS…they’re still available!

Using only one color with a couple of neutrals is an easy way to get a unified look.  Score!

Coordinating pattern paper, cardstock and embossing powder in Stampin’ Up! Melon Mambo – it’s like Color Coordination for Dummies.

Chalk Talk Thank You detail

Black always adds so much style and sophistication to a card even if it is a chalkboard.  I’m a fan of black.  I disagree that Orange is the New Black.  Sorry, Netflix.

I still love the chalkboard look.   How about you?  You can easily achieve this chalkboard technique by heat embossing on black cardstock.   Then rub white craft ink randomly across the black cardstock with a sponge for that chalky, just erased look.

Apparently, Stampin’ Up! does not feel the need to consult me before making product retirement decisions.

What’s up with that?

I can guarantee you that if they had asked me, I would have said you can’t retire these sweet open hearts from Hearts A Flutter or the Melon Mambo embossing powder until after I’ve walked on the moon.

Which is NEVER!

But the good news, I guess, is that amazing stamp sets and accessories retire so we can have more amazing stamp sets and accessories.

And we don’t all have to have back surgery from carrying around a catalog that weighs 500 pounds.

And more good news – the bakers twine is now available in seven new colors and the new thick baker’s twine is available in five colors.  Seven plus five equals twelve new options.  Check it out here.
