We’ll be friends forever because . . .

Stampin' Up! Friends Who Know Card. . . you already know too much! I love stuff like this. Sucks you in with the pretty and sweet sentiment only to be delightfully thrown by the punch line. The second you read that, someone immediately came to mind that you know would be perfect to receive a card using the Stampin’ Up! Friends Who Know Stamp. If you have more than one good friend like that, you are truly blessed.

Like many single stamps, Friends Who Know was only made available to order for one year. The Friends You Know Stamp is available only through the end of the 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! Catalog which is June 2. Starting May 27, it will be available only while supplies last. You may or may not have until June 2 to order it in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com.

The Flashback Designer Series Paper used to make this card is also retiring. Both are available only while supplies last.

Unfortunately, the Labels Collection Framelits Dies used to perfectly die-cut the large stamp have sold out. As, too, is the Soft Sky 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon. Every day I find more and more Stampin’ Up! accessories have sold out.

I always feel awful when I can’t help those looking for Stampin’ Up! stamps and accessories because they waited too long. I’m the queen of procrastinating, but this is not the occasion to wait. Please order the retiring Stampin’ Up! products you want now in my online store.

Throwback Flip Card Thursday

Stampin' Up! Label Card Thinlits DieRemember when the flip card Thinlits Dies were introduced? Decisions, decisions, which to choose first? The Label Card Thinlits Die or the Circle Card Thinlits Die? My first choice was the Label Card Thinlits. Stampin’ Up! had me at the ease of making flip cards. I made my decision on the other dies included in the set. In particular, I liked the die that coordinated with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies (sold out). It’s a different size and provided another layer.

Soon there will be only one choice. Sadly, the Label Card Thinlits Dies are being retired. But, there is great news for those who act quickly. It’s 50% off in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com! But only while supplies last.

For Throwback Thursday, I found a flip card I made with the retiring Label Card Thinlits Dies AND the retiring Mosaic Madness Stamp Set.

As I look to link you to retiring accessories, more and more are disappearing. If you have your eye on something, order it right away. It might not be there the next time. Time is also running out on the guarantee of retiring stamp sets being available. Any retiring Stampin’ Up! stamp set is available only through May 26. After that it will be June 2, 2015 unless supplies run out first.

Where to start?!

Stampin' Up! Bright & Beautiful stampingsmilescomLooking at the products added for this week’s Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals, I’m not sure which one to point out first. The first to catch my eye was the Stampin’ Up! Bright & Beautiful Stamp Set. I made a Christmas card with embossed Smoky Slate stars that has been repinned many times.

Next that caught my eye were the product pairs: Rose Coral Chalk Ink Pad / Chalkboard Paper and Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack / Stacked with Love Designer Washi Tape.

The Spring Flowers Embossing Folder is a beauty from the Occasions Catalog that is not getting carried over into the 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalog.

If you like Designer Series Paper to coordinate with your stamp sets, don’t let the Maritime Designer Series Paper (Sea Street Stamp Set) and Birthday Bash (Balloon Bash Stamp Set) get away at the 25% off price. Save now on all the products pictured below in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com! Hurry, you only have through Monday, May 25!

 

Did you know the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Emboss Powder is being retired too? It’s available through June 2 or while supplies last. Grab it up now in my online store at 50% off before it gets gone too.

Stampin' Up! A Happy Hooray card www.stampingsmiles.comThere’s just something classy about black and white. My precious downline, Dixie Pechachek, used black quite often in her handmade card designs. She laughed when I told her that her cards were always looked so elegant with the accent of black she used. She laughed because for her it was an easy out from trying to choose another color to use.
