Stampin' Up! Retirement List 2013

It's that time of year again friends! Retiring Stamp Sets are available until June 3, and as usual Retiring Accessories are First Come-First Served, so I'm afraid if we wait until our next classes on May 2nd and 3rd, you might miss out on those. BE SURE AND CHECK THE ACCESSORIES--SOME ARE ON SALE. If you only want Stamp Sets, you should be fine to wait until our next club meeting, but the accessories may sell out.

And if you place an order through my online store before Sunday at 6 p.m. CDT, and use Hostess Code WYGC3TMH you will be entered to win one of the retiring stamp sets: Button Buddies and an assortment of buttons from all the retiring color families.  (Orders over $150 should not use the hostess code as they are eligible for their own hostess benefits).  (If you already have Button Buddies, I'll find another nice set I'm not keeping for you.)
To shop the retired lists, visit my Demonstrator Web Site and click shop now.  Don't forget to check out the Clearance Rack and other limited times offers in the promotions section while you are there.

MOJO287 Some retiring colors and the Best of Flowers bouquet

I didn't finish in time to enter this card in last week's contest, but I think some of you will enjoy making this card at class next month.  It highlights four Stampin' Up! colors that have been retired. Sadly, you can't get reinkers for many of the colors already.  Instead of River Rock on the flowers I didn't use a So Saffron marker (to color the roses) which is not retiring, but the Lucky Limeade (2011-2013 In Color), Not Quite Navy, River Rock and Baja Breeze are retiring.  I've really enjoyed these colors over the years.

Masculine Stamp A Stack Cards

I hope you like some of these designs....they will be great for any upcoming male birthdays, or you can change the sentiment if you'd like.

I was inspired by this card on Pinterest by Nancy Ferb for the cards above and the feminine card below.

The Everything Eleanor flourish looks perfect with the oval...I had to offer this for Stamp A Stack when I saw her design.

Patterned Occasions for Stamp A Stack

The Sale-A-Bration set Patterned Occasions is so nice for a Stamp A Stack, so I decided to go ahead and use it even after SAB.  I enjoy the polka dot and chevron folders for added texture and interest to this card.

 As you can see, the card is exactly the same no matter which focal image you choose, so you just need to say Patterned Occasions to choose any of these four cards or the "whole latte love" sentiment.

Stamp A Stack Floral Monochrome Cards

These cards using March's 25th Anniversary set, Best of Flowers will be quick to make yet soft and pretty should you choose to make them at April Stamp A Stack.  I used the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder and the Labels Collection Framelits. Of course the sentiment can be changed to any other.
