Third Thursdays Blog Hop - Make New Friends but Keep the Old

Welcome once again to our Third Thursdays Blog Hop! This month our theme for the hop is Make New Friends but Keep the Old! Posts may feature products that will be RETIRING from our catalogs on June 3, 2019...or products debuting in our NEW Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog on June 4th...or a little of both, which is what I'm doing!!!

For the Old part, the project I am featuring below uses the Foxy Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set again. There is a Fox Builder Punch that coordinates with this set, although I didn't use it on this card. The greetings are from another set that will be leaving, called Jar of Love, and the shapes/layers were cut out with the coordinating Everyday Jars Framelits.
{you'll find Product Purchase Links for current items I've used, below the Blog Roll}

Stampin' Supplies for OLD Card: Foxy Friends stamp set (RETIRING), coordinating Fox Builder Punch (not used on this card but also RETIRING), Jar of Love stamp set (RETIRING), Everyday Jars Framelits (RETIRING), Cajun Craze ink pad, StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad, Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock (for card base), Very Vanilla Cardstock (for stamped fox and greetings), Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder (RETIRING), Big Shot (RETIRING), Cajun Craze Cardstock, Very Vanilla Medium Twine (RETIRING), Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Snips, Stampin' Trimmer (for cutting & scoring), Simply Shammy (to clean photopolymer stamps).

Stampin' Supplies for NEW Card: Wildly Happy stamp set*, Terracotta Tile Cardstock and ink pad*, Smoky Slate ink pad, StazOn Jet Black ink pad, Blender Pens, Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock (for card base), Very Vanilla Cardstock (for stamped fox and greetings), Button Button Embossing Folder*, Stitched Nested Labels Dies*, Big Shot (RETIRING), Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim*, Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Snips, Stampin' Trimmer (for cutting & scoring), Stampin' Scrub & Stampin' Mist (to clean red rubber stamps). {*Note: upcoming products will not be listed in the Product Purchase Links below}

You will find several files just above the Next button on my post today, which will provide you with lists of the RETIRING product in both PDF and Excel formats. You can also find the RETIRING products in the Last-Chance Products section of My Online Store...however, just a word of warning, the product(s) will not show up online if they are SOLD OUT.

Another tip on the RETIRING products, is that the stamp sets are guaranteed to be available for order through May 24th, since Stampin' Up! manufactures those themselves. However, all other products are while supplies last!!! I am urging you to SHOP NOW to make sure you get the stamp sets you want before they are gone.

As I said, the Foxy Friends Stamp Set, the Fox Builder Punch, the Jar of Love stamp set, and the coordinating Everyday Jars Framelits are RETIRING. Another small note on RETIRING stamp sets...we will no longer be carrying wood-mount stamps starting June 4th, 2019. So, you may see some stamp sets listed as RETIRING on the lists, but check for an asterisk (*) to see if only the wood-mount version of the set is RETIRING. If you have any questions, feel free to email me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!

  1. Oh wow! Love the foxes... such an amazing farewell to some awesome products, but new products are just as fabulous!

  2. Love it Kimberley! It makes it so much easier to let the retiring products go when there is something to replace it with!!!

  3. I love how you showcased both of those adorable little foxes, Kimberley! It's always sad to see product retire but there are so many awesome stamp sets in the new catalog, there are so many new creative options to explore. Love it!
