This is always such a fun time yet such a sad time in the Stampin’ Up! world. As you know I went to OnStage last weekend. We got copies of the amazing new 2018/2019 catalog. That part is very exciting and fun. There are amazing new products coming your way on June 1st. Along with the awesome, we do have a little sadness in seeing what products are not being carried over. The products used in the card are all retiring. That makes me sad because I love some of these products.
There are actually two stamp sets I used. Both of them are in the 2018 Occasions Catalog and will not be carried over. The striped heart is from the stamp set called Heart Happiness. I love this little heart because it is so different. I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color the different stripes (Lemon Lime Twist, Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride). Then I cut it out using the set of dies called Lots to Love Box. These dies go with another stamp set called Sure Do Love You and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. The Basic Black heart and the banner come from this set.
Last but not least, the Designer Series Paper I used on this card is called Picture Perfect Party and is also retiring. Of course, most Designer Series Paper in a mini catalog such as the Occasions Catalog, is not carried over. We kind of know that ahead of time.
Remember all products (except stamps) that are retiring are “while supplies last” so if you like something, you need to purchase it fairly quickly before it sells out for good.
