Stampin' Up! Last Chance Items

It is time to grab your favourite items which will be leaving the current Stampin Up catalogues before they are gone for good!

Don’t let your favourites retire and wish you had got them before it was too late. You have until 31st May to order items from the Last Chance List.  Some items are sure to sell out sooner as items are available whilst stocks last so if you really want it get it, don’t wait! 
The retiring list is LONG and you may be wondering why?  Stampin’ Up! have announced they will be having a colour revamp in the new Annual Catalogue on 1st June.  We are losing 18 colours and there has been a shake up with lots of new colours and some returning colours added.  The ink pads will also be revamped and available in the new style from 1st June so lots to look forward to.
Ok so what colours are leaving us?  These colours below are retiring & as always it is best to get in & order now before they are all gone.  Do you already own these colours?  If so, you might like to grab some matching cardstock, DSP or embellishments as they wont be available after May 31st. 

So what else is leaving? I have added the PDF lists below from both the Occasions catalogue & the Annual Catalogue as both these retire on the 31st May, 2018.   
Spring & Summer Seasonal Catalogue Last Chance Products < See what will NOT be carrying over and order before they gone for good!
Annual Catalogue Last Chance Products < See what will NOT be carrying over and order before they are gone for good!
So, what are my top 3 must have stamp sets retiring from the Annual catalogue? 

Number of Years and the matching framelits dies

Watercolor Wings and two matching die sets

Birthday Blooms Stamp Set

I anticipate these will go fast so pop on over & order ASAP if you dont want to miss out.  My favourite items retiring from the Occasions catalogue are:
Magical Day Stamp Set
We Must Celebrate Stamp Set
Truly Tailored  Stamp Set
The punch for the Truley Tailored suite is carrying over so thats great news! 
When placing an order worth under $250 please use the monthly hostess code to receive a free thank you gift for shopping with me. The new annual catalogue launches on 1st June and I will be taking a list of names to reserve your copy which will be posted to you in May. Please contact me to reserve your copy. 
CLICK HERE to head to my online store.  Remember the online store holds current products so if an item is sold out it wont show there. It's your best resource for the retirement list, plus it's in picture form so easier to navigate than the PDF. 
Happy shopping!  Please do get in touch if I can help you with anything.
Thanks so much for stopping by, Tricia

CTC 170 Friendships Sweetest Thoughts

Hello & Welcome to our fun Sunday night Blog Hop & Challenge. Today we are CASEing pages 28-35 in the Occasions Catalogue. This section is the Tutti Fruity section but covers lots of other products too.  

I have chosen to case the Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts cards on page34. 

I haven't joined in the hop in such a long time so I thought it was high time to get my fingers inky & join the fun.  As you can see I CASED all 3 of these cards because I couldn't decide which one I wanted to create! 

My 1st card I used the pretty flower cart stamp.  I changed the sentiment to Happy Birthday (from We Must Celebrate stamp set) as I needed a quick birthday card this week.  I also used the Berry Burst Sweet Soiree DSP, because I just love it so much!  I used Stampin' Blends to colour the cart image. These are perfect for creating pretty images like the cart in this stamp set.

My second card is similar to the yellow striped gift bag at the bottom.  I chose to use the Daffodil Delight honeycomb patterend DSP from the FREE Sale-A-Bration Bubbles & Fizz DSP instead of a bag.  I've used an oval instead of a circle & added a silver doily instead of the clip. I used Stampin' Write markers in Emerald Envy & Flirty Flamingo with Momento black ink for the vellum piece. I did use the Emeral Envy Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon, but moved it to the bottom of the oval instead. 

My third card is based on the top right card in the picture which I believe is a little gift card.  I have made mine into a small notecard & stayed pretty close to the card in the picture. I didnt emboss the Crumb Cake card base, but I did use the doily & Pool Party banner like the image above with the sentiment from the Perennial Birthday kit. I used Stampin' Blends to colour the flower pots & the pretty silver bakers twine from the Sweet Soiree section of the Occasions catalogue.

We would love you to join us with your CASE this week, using our Facebook group. Click on the image below to go there. For the first time you'll need to click on the "Join Group" button at the top. After you're added you can post your creation and you don't need to have a blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the hop! Next up is Sandra.  I wonder what she has created for us today, just click on the Next blog button below.

Colour INKspiration #29

Hello and Welcome to our Colour INKspiration challenge!  This is a fabulous blog hop of wonderfully talented designers ready to inspire you in new and different ways using Stampin' Up! Colours.  Make sure you keep hopping all the way around!
Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a blog hop.
All entries will be via this Facebook group so make sure you add your creation there. 

It's been a very long time since I sat & stamped.  Everytime I tried, things just got busy & I gave up. Today I thought I would join the the Colour INKspiration blog hop & literally made myself sit down & stamp. I started with a card sketch & worked on 2 cards to add to this weeks hop. When it's been a while I find it easier to create from a sketch or CASE the catalogue.  Today it was just SO hard to even get started!   

Here is the gorgeous colour swatch we are working with this time around.

This photo conjures up vingtage lace & pretty flowers for me, however I just didnt have the mojo to actually create those things!  I have to admit, my cards are quite simple today but I am proud I actually made something.   Here are my two cards similar in design yet different in essence.

For my first card I have clear embossed the cake from Cake Soiree in Chocolate Chip.  I used the Garden Green & Blushing Bride markers to colour the flowers & embossed the back ground using the Sequins embossing folder.  I also sprinked some wink of stella over the sequins & flowers for extra shine, but it's not easy to see here. 

My second card uses the lovely new Springtime Foils DSP from the new Sale-A-Bration offerings.  It is such a lovely DSP & colours well. I used the markers once again on this flower & cut it out. The background is embossed using the Petal Pair embossing folder. I've added some Garden Green ribbon & the sentiment is from A Good Day stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue.  

I really wasnt that happy with these cards, they were just not what I had pictured making, so I made another one.  This one was more what I had in my head.  I wanted a chocoltate cake as soon as I used the Chocolate Chip ink so I knew I had to have one more try. 

Thanks for visitng today.  To continue the hop just click onto the next blog to see what Mel has created for you - Oh my goodness it is simply adorable!
