Last week we received a copy of the July – December Mini Catalog retired and carryover lists. You can click on the links below to see the products that are retiring or being carried over. The retirement list is quite long and one of the stamp and die bundles that is retiring is called Spruced Up. The stamp set is a Christmas set and includes a couple of Christmas trees, a couple of Christmas ornaments, some nice sentiments and a few other stamps (such as a snowflake, candy cane, present, etc. The coordinating dies are a little different because, not only do they cut out the trees, but they also cut out an outline of the trees. I love it when the dies do different and unusual things.
To make this card, I first stamped the tree in Shaded Spruce ink and cut it out using the die set. Then I stamped the snowflakes in Orchid Oasis ink and cut them out. Then I cut out the stars directly from Daffodil Delight card stock.
Next, I cut out the frames using the die set called Fabulous Frames in Orchid Oasis card stock. This die set is in the 2022/2023 Annual Catalog and cuts out three different frame shapes as well as some other things. I ran a piece of Basic White card stock through my Cut & Emboss machine using the Wintry 3D embossing folder. I love how it embosses some snowflakes, as well as some swirls and dots. It is very pretty in person. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the set called Charming Sentiments and cut it out using the Sentiment Silhouettes dies.
Remember, once retiring items sell out they are gone for good so if you want something from the July – December Mini Catalog, you should order it before it is too late. Some of the items are on sale too!
