Don't wait to order these RETIRING ITEMS

The 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! Catalog will shortly be a fond memory, and today we found out which stamps sets will not be continuing on with us to the new catalog... Oh, and there were many!!
2015-2016 Stampin' Up! Retiring Items List

I highly recommend ordering your favorites before they sell out - they WILL sell out. You know the inventory control that Stampin' Up! has been working so hard on will not allow for these supplies and stamps to just hang around!

Top of your list should be any Re-Inkers (Ink refills) for the 2014-16 In Colors, as well as any coordinating paper for these colors. I can not stress how quickly these items will go - GO ORDER NOW!! #dontsayididntwarnyou

Lots of stuff at discounts of up to 50% off 
(psst!! get those ones first - sell out risk is HIGH) 
SHOP HERE: www.StampinUp.com 

Also be sure to add any of the sweet stamp sets you've had an eye on, and take a long look through the other items that are retiring. The retiring punch list is LONG, and Yes! We will have punches in the new catalog, but get the retiring punches before they sell for buck$ on eBay - order now!

Happy Crafting!

Something Blue... Love Story Project Life Bermuda Bay Cards

Project Life Love Story Bermuda Bay Stampin Up MidnightCrafting
Shades of softly bright, beautiful blue, Bermuda Bay. It sure is hot here in the Central Valley this week!! I added blue with wistful thoughts of cooler temps, cooler locations, basically anything that is cooler than the 95+degree weather we are enjoying here in CA!

Mixed in some stamps from the Stampin' Up! sets Big News, Cottage Greetings, and the Hostess Set Happy Birthday, Everyone. Candy Dots, Basic Jewels Rhinestones, and some bakers twine add a little extra interest. Some washes of color with the Blender Pen and my Bermuda Bay ink pad, and Dimensionals to add some leveraged layers... Pretty fun playing with these cards!!

Love Story Project Life Greeting Cards

 Project Life Love Story Stampin Up MidnightCrafting Cardmaking
Working with Project Life cards is pretty fun, so many options! Besides memory keeping, I mean. Today I just used a few of the 4x6 cards and trimmed them to fit a standard A2 card. I think they came out pretty fun, I especially like the great hand lettering fonts! These are just a few of the 100 card collection. Kind of nice to just futz with the layout and embellishments... ;-) LoL #easy

Masculine Friendly Wishes Layered Letters Fathers Day

Layered Letters Fathers Day Friendly Wishes Masculine Card Idea
Have you wondered what guys favorite colors are? I kind of wondered, because almost alllllll the cards for men are made in shades of brown. Brown, it turns out, is one of EVERYONES least favorite colors... Go Figure. Google it. :-) Interesting stuff.

This is a simple card for my dad. He put up this cool shelf for me in my laundry, so I thought I'd send him a little thank you. You could use this for Fathers Day, if your dad is a sweet and simple dad like mine! ;-)

What I really wanted to share though, was how AWESOME these Layered Letter Alphabet Stamps are!! You can customize that Fathers Day card for your Papa, Daddy, Dada, Opa, Papi, Pop, Pops, Granpa, Dadda, GrandPa, StepDude, etc.... These will come in handy for birthdays and special days too, I'm so excited and glad I got this set!!


Happy Crafting!

How To : Note Card Set Endless Birthday Wishes with Cherry On Top


Cherry on Top Endless Birthday Wishes MidnightCrafting
Its fun to mix and match stamp sets, and luckily so many of Stampin' Up! stamp sets 'play well with others'! LoL But sometimes, keeping it simple has its advantages! This note card set, for example, uses one stamp set and one Designer Paper Series Stack with minimal embellishment - but has optimal impact!

Note cards are a great economical alternative to full cards for a few reasons. They are slightly smaller, at 3.5" x 5" folded, so you use less resources like adhesive and paper, embellishments and ribbon. They come in a package of 20 cards AND envelopes, for a nice savings in overall paper and envelope costs. And they are pre-scored, ready to fold, stamp, and send, which saves you time and energy in preparing to craft. (really? yes, I'm that lazy busy! Preparing to craft is half the craft session, sometimes! LoL)

These are the supplies I used:

 Its pretty easy to guess the theme of this Designer Series Paper Stack, what with all the cake and ice cream and candles and balloons: It's A Birthday or Party type stack. So I thought I would get good use out of it by pairing it with the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set. And yes. Endless Options! Wheeeee!!!

I started with a card that would show off a bunch of those party prints, this panel card with strips of different paper. On the back of some of the bolder prints are the subtler and more "background" type prints, perfect to use as the panel base.

HOW TO Cherry on Top Endless Birthday Wishes MidnightCrafting Notecard Set
3/4" Strip onto 3" x 4.5" panel
I picked several patterns I liked - they all go together, that's the beauty of the Designer Series Paper Stack: It coordinates with itself wonderfully! I cut pieces of the 4.5 x 6" sheets into 0.75" x 6". For this card I couldn't quite get 2 cards out of it, because it uses slightly more than half when I placed the strips at an angle. But I liked the look, and I have lots of paper! I stacked the strips at an angle up the card, using Snail to stick the strips down. 


HOW TO Cherry on Top Endless Birthday Wishes MidnightCrafting Notecard Set

Once they were stacked I stamped my greeting across the top. I turned the panel over and trimmed off the excess parts of the strips.


I used about 5 different layouts, but alternated the paper patterns to create 20 different cards. You can see more of them in this post HERE. I also used the Cherry On Top Paper Stack to embellish the envelopes. This is a really simple but adorable way to add a little excitement to the outside of your envelope. Cut a 2" x 6" strip of paper that goes with the papers used on the card. You could totally use whichever paper you liked, they DO all go together, but it adds a nice bit of matchy-matchy when you use the exact print that is somewhere on the card. If you want to be super coordinated. ;-)

2" x 6" strip of paper will cover the envelope flap easily.
Add rows of Snail Adhesive for a secure stick.
Add your strip and smooth it out. Trim the excess off with scissors.

Voila! Matchy-matchy Magnificence!
Hope you are inspired to try your own, these are an easy way to get a bunch of cards done in a short amount of time. Perfect for all those summer events! What Paper and Stamp Set duo are you going to try?
