Green & Growing...Summer Smooches

I haven't been feeling well the last couple months, and I was so excited to get the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper...then just wasn't up to playing with it. By the way, tonight (April 30, 2012 at 11:50pm Mountain Time) is the deadline to order not only the Summer Smooches Sneak Peek products, but also products from the Occasions Mini catalog. Anyway, my one goal today was to get this card posted for you, and for me--as an entry in the SoShellicom Creative Challenge, themed Green & Growing.  As soon as I read the theme, this card was Green & Growing in my mind :-)  I started it early in the month but just finished it today. {Click photo for full-size image!}


All the printed paper is from the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper pack, and the Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon is from the Summer Smooches promotion also. I love how the green colored paper has lines on it--I just snipped right down those lines, then cut the tops at angles, and scrunched, to make the "grass" on the card! See those little tiny flowers at the top left and bottom right of the greeting? They are punched out of another piece of Summer Smooches DSP, using the little 4-petal flower from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. The flower punch fits perfectly over each of the little circles on that patterned piece of paper, for the perfect accent.

The greeting itself is actually a stamp available only to demonstrators to purchase. I got it at Convention last summer. Don't you wish you were a demonstrator, too? Guess what...Stampin' Up! has just come up with a NEW $99 Starter Kit, where you order ANY product you want, up to a retail value of $125. Stay tuned, I'll give you full details tomorrow.

EXCEL Retiring Accessories List 

UPDATE: Craft Scissors and Paper Snips were listed on the original Retiring Lists by mistake--they will be remaining. My files have been updated.
You will see many ink pads and lot of card stock on the retiring list...let me explain a little about what's going on.  Some of it is being "repackaged" or "redesigned".

First, 12x12 TEXTURED CARD STOCK WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERED.  If you want 12x12 Textured Card Stock in Stampin' Up! colors, please ORDER NOW while the colors you want are still available. The 12x12 Smooth Card Stock will still be offered, but only in select individual colors and collections (which I will not be able to list for you until May 8th at the earliest).

Also, SIMPLY ADORNED and DEFINITELY DECORATIVE PRODUCTS WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERED.  If you want any of these products, I once again urge you to ORDER IMMEDIATELY for the best selection.

In addition, you will notice that ALL our ink pads are on the Retiring List. Here is some clarification on that: CRAFT INK PADS, CRAFT INK SPOTS, AND CRAFT INK REFILLS WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERED...with the exception of BLACK and WHITE Craft Ink Pads and Refills.

CLASSIC INK PADS WILL RETURN---REDESIGNED---WITH A FIRM FOAM PAD...with the exception of all 2010-2012 In Colors (Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Concord Crush and Blushing Bride). Classic Ink Spots (1"x1" pads) will not be redesigned, they will still have the current linen pad. [Stay tuned...I will explain more about the upcoming NEW Firm Foam Classic Ink Pads in a separate post.]

And one more bit of information, INDIVIDUAL STAMPIN' WRITE MARKERS WILL BE OFFERED ONLY IN SELECT COLORS...though they will still be available in color collections packages (i.e., Neutrals, Regals, Brights, Subtles, In Colors).

If you have any questions on these retiring products, please feel free to EMAIL ME or call me at 719-205-5957.
It is IMPERATIVE that you ACT IMMEDIATELY to ORDER YOUR RETIRING ACCESSORIES NOW before they are SOLD OUT!

You don't even have to put gifts or treats in the purses, think of the fun you could have putting a basket of these out on a table, with fortunes or fun quotes in them! Remember, the Petite Purse Bigz XL Die will not be available again for purchase until June 1st, so BUY IT NOW to use for Mother's Day and your graduation celebrations.
NOTE: Stampin' Up! dies are intended for use in the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine...and if you purchase your Stampin' Up! dies from me, you are welcome to come over and use my Big Shot if you are not yet ready to make the investment in your own :-)
