Stampin Up Retiring Lists 2023 (also called Last Chance Lists now)

Hey friends. As I mentioned yesterday, it's time to say goodbye to some products and colours.

The lists of products from these two current catalogues (2023 Annual Catalogue and 2023 January to April Mini Catalogue) have just been released.

  • You can purchase any of these from today and they are only available while stocks last. 
  • There will be a "Last Chance" section in the store until April 4th (but just purchase before hand if you want using code or name to search).
  • When there is a sale price listed, the sale price doesn't take effect until April 4th. Very important: if you are ordering online, you will need to start a new order after April 4th for sale prices to take effect.
  • If there are things which aren't on sale after 4th April - grab them now to be sure.
  • I expect any of retiring colour products and the Stamparatus to go fast. Maybe some others as I haven't had a close look at the list myself yet. I'll be back with my 'picks' of the retiring lists.

Stampin' Up! Queen Bee Birthday Card using Elegant Border Dies

Today I have a handmade birthday card for you using the Stampin' Up! Queen Bee bundle from the 2023 January to April Mini Catalogue, and the Elegant Border dies (released March 2023 as part of the Online Exclusives drop). This bundle really took my eye when I first glanced at the catalogue. I love it's vintage vibe.

Stampin Up Queen Bee Bundle

My first sample uses Petal Pink as the base and some die cuts and some Fancy Flora DSP as the second layer. The bee is stamped in Soft Suede and immediately over-stamped with Versamark and clear embossed. This gives a deeply coloured, shiny image.

The floral die cuts fit really nicely around the largest stitched circle in the Stylish Shapes dies. I love that stitched label which comes in the dies from the bundle too. I popped a couple of Champagne Rhinestones on either end. The little flower is die cut from Distressed Gold Specialty Paper with a pearl in the middle.

For my second sample, I have used Crumb Cake as the base, and I have randomly stamped on the base card in Crumb cake ink. I used one of the die cut Elegant Border Dies (in the Online Exclusives section of the online store or order direct through me - see below) for the Evening Evergreen piece, and a scrap of Fancy Flora that was laying on my desk for the DSP piece. I think this particular Elegant Border piece is really well suited to vintage cards. I also die cut some of the smaller bees and leaves with the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper.

For the Queen Bee, I embossed her in gold, and popped her on top of some linen thread.

Two Stampin' Up! Irresistible Blooms Cards

Today I have 2 more cards to show you from the Stampin' Up! Irresistible Blooms bundle from the recent Online Exclusives product release of 20 brand new products. These products are all part of the Hello Irresistible suite of products. Theses cards are both pretty quick and simple as my wrist is still in a brace so I am a bit limited in the cardmaking department for a few more weeks. 

For this first one I have used Crumb Cake as the base and for embellishing. I really like how it coordinates with the greens in the Hello Irresistible Designer Series Paper. I've used the part of one of the dies cuts under the sentiment label for a bit of interest. The sentiment label for this one is made using to layers of the Stampin' Up! Something Fancy Dies from the January to April Mini Catalogue.

Here's a closer look at the Something Fancy dies. They can either be purchased by themselves or in a bundle together with a great sentiment set. There are lots of great layering options with these dies and they fit many sentiments - not just the ones that are in the coordinating stamp set. I will do another blog post soon showing lots of layering options.

This second Irresistible Blooms card is very simple. I loved this piece of paper from the DSP so much that it kind of spoke for itself. The card base is Petal Pink, and then in addition to the DSP I just added some white seam binding ribbon, the sentiment and a couple of the Loose Frosted Embellishments from the Stampin' Up! Hello Irresistible suite (these are easy to stick on with glue dots). I really like the font on in this stamp set too - it's nice and big and bold, yet has a fun casual look at the same time!
