It’s coming soon… the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog debuts on June 1st. And in order to make room for the new stamp sets (yay!!) they’ll have to retire a good number of the current ones (boo hoo!). Who knows what will retire? Anyone can guess, but the list will come out on April 15th, so watch for it here on my blog.
Have any guesses about what will be going? I’m wondering about Upsy Daisy (see it online). It’s one of my favorite all-time sets, but it’s been around awhile… here’s a Clean & Simple card idea that makes the most of this gorgeous stamp set.
The card is Very Vanilla card stock with a Very Vanilla layer… gotta love Stampin’ Dimensionals to make it stand up! The greeting is from the very versatile Sincere Salutations stamp set (see it online). It’s like a magic stamp set… with two type faces on each greeting, it matches a wide variety of styled stamp sets.
And the technique on the silhouette is a simple Rock N Roll, simple as 1-2-3:
- Just ink the whole stamp in More Mustard first
- Then rock just the edges of the stamp on a Cajun Craze ink pad
- Stamp on your card stock, and voila!
Here are some other cards with the Upsy Daisy stamp set on my blog.
Know what else will be retiring? The whole Decor Element product line, including the Upsy Daisy Decor Elements (my favorites!). Click here to browse the Decor Elements online now.
Got a guess for a retiring stamp set? Leave me your guesses in a comment! Can’t wait to see if we’re right, or if we get to hang onto this fun stamp set for another year.
