On Wednesday’s blog post, I highlighted a departing In Color Blueberry Bushel, which you can see HERE! Today’s card says goodbye to another In Color leaving us, Grapefruit Grove. If you love a soft, peachy color now might be a god time to grab some ink, paper and embellishments in this lovely color. Stampin’ Up’s! retirement list came out yesterday and features many wonderful and loved products making a final bow between now and June 2nd, or while supplies last. Click on the icon below see some of the fabulous items retiring. And for some, there are great discounts! Retiring products is always a fun time.
In addition to the retiring Grapefruit Grove In Color, this card features a gorgeous retiring stamp, Beautiful Day. I have been focusing on cards that can be sent now and send some cheer to friends and families staying at home. So, this stamp set had a perfect sentiment as well as a big, bold stamp that would show off the color perfectly. So, this card showcases a retiring color and a retiring stamp set!
Yesterday, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators got a sneak peek at the upcoming catalog. And I noticed a lot of simply stamped projects. I love the look and the fact you can create a card quickly. So, I went for a simply stamped look with a monochromatic color story. The bold image shows off the color well and the In Color Designer Series paper is perfect for creating monochromatic in different patterns.
If you want DSP that is on sale, the 2019-2021 In Color Paper is discounted 30%! I have included a link for it in the product list below. I have never seen such great discounts on so many retiring products. This is the year to shop the retiring list! But don’t wait too long! Discounted items tend to sell out fast!
You will see some things on the retiring list such as the Stampin’ Blends, that are NOT retiring. They are simply being reconfigured to sell as combos only. The retiring In Color Blends and single pack Stampin’ Blends are retiring. Some of the dies are also being reconfigured and will have a new style number. So, the dies in old packaging are being discontinued. Happy shopping!
