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!

Stampin' Blends are Here!!

10.17.17_STAMPINBLENDS_SHAREABLE1_DEMO_NA

Hooray!!  Stampin' Up! has just released brand new awesome alcohol based markers - Stampin' Blends!  Demonstrators were able to preorder theirs in early October, so I've had mine for a few weeks and have loved playing with them!  Now they're available for everyone to order!  And, there's a new stamp set called Color Me Happy that's available to order as well.

Here's a card I made using the new stamp set along with the Stampin' Blends.

Color Me Happy

I love these adorable balloons!  I colored them in with the Pool Party duo and the Old Olive duo along with the Color Lifter to make some white highlights.  They are super easy and fun to use!

Here are some videos to tell you more about Stampin' Blends, the features and benefits and how to use them.

Daisy Delight Thank You Card

I just can't seem to get enough of this Daisy Delight stamp set and matching punch!  AND... it's finally back in stock!  Yay!! 

Daisy Delight
Daisy Delight

For this card, I did a different kind of fold, with a belly band.   The card base is still a half sheet of card stock (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"), but it's scored at 2-1/8" from each end.  Then I just wrapped a 9-1/2" x 3/4" piece of Night of Navy card stock around it and secured it in the front with Fast Fuse, then added the punched daisies on top!   Super easy!  Just be sure and only adhere your front focal piece to one side of the card.

 


I'm in Love with Embossing Paste!

Happy Monday! 

I have an upcoming class featuring the new Embossing Paste, so I've been busy playing with it and I AM IN LOVE!  It's so fun and easy to use!  Here is one of my favorite cards that I've created using it. 

Oh So Eclectic

On this card, I just used it the traditional way - just the plain white paste on Soft Sky card stock.  I love the way the brick wall background looks!  The stamp set I used is Oh So Eclectic.  I won this stamp set as a door prize at On Stage back in April, and I have to admit, it's just been sitting on my shelf unused because I wasn't really all that excited about it.  But, boy was I wrong!  It's a beautiful and fun set and with the coordinating set of thinlits, there's so much you can do with it! 

Now, back to my Embossing Paste Class... I'm having it locally in two different locations, with 3 time choices.  If you live in the Dallas/Ft Worth area - click HERE for all of the info and to register!

 


Last Chance for Occasions Catalog and Retiring Products!

Well, it's really hard to believe, but today is the last day of May!  What does that mean?  It means it's the final day that you can order from the awesome Occasions Catalog and it's the final day to order retiring products before they're gone for good! 

Here's a few ideas using some of the products that are retiring.

IMG_4054

This one uses the Fresh Fruit stamp set and the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.  LOVE!
IMG_4054This one uses the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and 2 retiring punches- the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches.
IMG_4054So sad to see this cute stamp set go - it's the You're Sublime set with the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper.

These are just a sampling of the 100's of retiring products!  Order today before it's too late!

ALSO... it's the last day to order the two exclusive bundles of new products in the Eastern Palace Suite!  These will all be in the brand new catalog that starts tomorrow, but you won't be able to order them all together in these bundles with the free items after today.  AND... if you order either of them from me, I'll send you this Class to Go for FREE!
