Barn Door Bundle and In the Trees stamp set

Hello!  Well, it's another Wednesday, and that means it's time for Stamping with Amy, my weekly online class!  I hope you were able to join me live, but if not, the video is posted on my Stamped with Joy facebook page, as always. 

The first project I shared with you today was a card using the In the Trees stamp set.  This adorable set is retiring, boo hoo!  So, be sure and get it before the end of May when it's gone for good!

In the Trees

The second, and last project I shared this week (only 2 since this one was a little more time consuming), was a treat box that uses the Barn Door bundle from the Occasions catalog.  Oh boy, do I love this bundle!  Now, fortunately, it will be sticking around for another year to enjoy, however, the discounted bundled price will only be available through May 31, so don't miss out on saving that 10%!

I have to give a shout out to my fellow demonstrator, Lorri Heiling.  I found her tutorial for this project on pinterest and totally cased it!  It's adorable! 

Here's this week's project sheet with all of the measurements and supplies I used on both of these projects.  Download Stamping with Amy. April 25 docx  Enjoy!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Don't forget!  All minimum orders of $30, using host code: GGEQNWRD, will receive both of these make & takes in the mail for free!  (your dsp piece on the hammock card might be different than the one pictured).  If your order is $150 or more, DO NOT use the host code so that you can receive the Stampin' Rewards.


This Week's Online Class - Retiring Stamps and Paper

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I hope your week has been off to a good start.  Mine has been good so far.  Pretty uneventful, other than workmen here ripping up part of our downstairs' bathroom floor... yikes!  In case you don't know, we live in a 100 year old home that we did a complete renovation/restoration of about a year ago.  (well, we've been in for a year, the renovation started about 2 years ago).  Anyway... long story short- we had a slow leak that we did not know about that's been going on since before we moved in and it caused some major mold problems under the floor.  But, it's being taken care of and the smell will be gone now, thank goodness!!

Anyway... I know you didn't come here to read about my house, lol.  Back to stamping!  Today is my weekly online FB live class, Stamping with Amy.  It's every Wednesday at 2pm cst on my Stamped with Joy Facebook page.  I hope you've been able to watch.  If you can't watch it live, it's always posted afterwards.  And, each week, if you place a minimum $30 order using that week's host code, I'll send you that week's make & takes for free so you can make them at home! 

This week, I focused on a few retiring stamp sets and some retiring Designer Series Paper.  It's always sad to see products go... but it's always fun to get new stuff too! 

Cool Treats

This card features the Cool Treats stamp set and the coordinating Frozen Treats Framelits. (in the annual catalog) I also used the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper Stack from the Occasions Catalog.  LOVE this paper!  It's been one of my favorites from the Occasions. 

Mixed Drinks

This card features the retiring stamp set, Mixed Drinks.  I was so excited to get this adorable set last year, and then it's sat on my shelf unused all year.  WHAT??  Why didn't I get it out and use it sooner?  It's so stinkin' cute! 

Sweetest Friendship seed packet Seed packet

Now this set, Friendships' Sweetest Thoughts, is from the Occasions catalog and its' also retiring.  I was so drawn to this set, and I have loved playing with it!  For this project, I made a cute little simple seed packet holder.  I just thought this stamp was a cute one for giving away some seeds and since it's Spring, I've got seed planting on my mind.  And, the Delightful Daisy dsp was perfect for this project.  It's also retiring. 

Here's this week's project sheets so you can see everything I used to create these three projects along with the measurements.  Download Stamping with Amy. April 18 docx

Don't forget!  All orders of at least $30 by this Sunday, April 22, will receive all three of these fun make & takes in the mail for FREE!  You must use the  host code:DF3KSBKZ if your order is under $150

 


Retiring Bundles- Get them while you can!

Hello Stamping Friends!  I hope you were able to join me live over on my Stamped with Joy Facebook page for today's episode of Stamping with Amy.  If not, no worries, you can watch it right here. 

I featured 4 different bundles in my 3 projects today.  1 of them, the Charming Cafe bundle from the Occasions Catalog, is retiring for good on May 31, or while supplies last.  2 of the other 3, Beautiful Bouquet and Apron of Love, will continue to be available in the new Annual Catalog, however, not as bundles- so you can only get the bundle (stamp set & framelits set) at a discounted price through May 31.  I love ALL of these awesome stamp sets and framelits sets!!  So fun to play with!

Here's a look at this week's projects:

Apron of Love nugget holder

This little adorable Hershey's Nuggets holder is made using the Apron of Love bundle.  You can find the measurements for this on the Project Sheets below.

Beautiful Bouquet

This card features the Beautiful Bouquet bundle along with the Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Jars Framelits set.

Charming Cafe

And this card features the Charming Cafe bundle, which will be gone for good after May 31- so snatch it up quickly!

Here are this week's project sheets.  You can find a complete supply list for each project along with measurements.  Download Stamping with Amy. April 11 docx

Remember- all online orders of at least $30 will receive this week's make & takes in the mail for free!  You must use this host code:  DF3KSBKZ. (unless your order is $150 or more)

There's tons of awesome products that will soon be gone for good!  Be aware that products on these lists are available only while supplies last and many of the items do sell out quickly - especially retiring color products such as ink pads, ink refills and card stock.  So, if you see things on here that you want, don't delay!

The Colors are Evolving!

The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When they see changes happening, they review their color spectrum to ensure that they remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp!

In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colors, Stampin' Up!  decided it was time to give our color collections a makeover. 

All I can say is... Woo hoo!!  I love new colors!!  And, along with the color changes, you'll find a beautifully redesigned ink pad!  I got to try the new ink pads out last weekend and they are awesome! 

Typically, retiring color products are the first to sell out, so I highly recommend grabbing those quickly if you see some of your favorite colors retiring.  Get those ink refills and coordinating card stock before they're gone for good!

There are 13 Core Colors retiring:

  • Always Artichoke
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Elegant Eggplant
  • Island Indigo
  • Marina Mist
  • Perfect Plum
  • Pink Pirouette
  • Rose Red
  • Soft Sky
  • Tangerine Tango
  • Tempting Turquoise
  • Wild Wasabi
  • Wisteria Wonder

Along with the 2016-2018 In Colors:

  • Dapper Denim
  • Emerald Envy
  • Flirty Flamingo (while retiring as an In Color, will continue to be available as a new core color)
  • Peekaboo Peach
  • Sweet Sugarplum

Don't miss out on getting your hands on all of these products that will soon be gone for good!
