Creative Inking Blog Hop- Saying Goodbye

creative hop


Hi there stamping friends! Welcome to another month with the Creative Inking Blog Hop team! This month we are featuring stamps and products that are retiring from the Stampin’ Up! 2015-16 Annual Catalog and the 2016 Occasions Catalog. There are so many great stamps, inks, punches, dies, colors that are leaving us- I’m sure you’ll enjoy this “Last Chance” blog hop- to see things you might want to buy before they are gone forever! It’s hard to believe it’s time to say “good-bye” to them!

I decided to feature these three cards at my May Clubs this month and for this blog hop, don’t you love it when you can “kill two birds with one stone” (where did that saying come from, lol?)


This card is a case from a demonstrator from the Netherlands who made it in yellow. Thanks Anja!

This card is my own design featuring the retiring set Hey Girl…


Which one do you like better the blonde or the brunette?

I saved my favorite for last, I am so sad that By the Tide is retiring, I absolutely love this coral and all the stamps in the set actually.

Here are some close-ups of the elements on this card. I used our shimmery white card stock for the base and that was beautiful to watercolor, I used crumb cake for the sandy bottom, and then Bermuda bay with some pool party to make the ocean water.

Well what do you think of my retiring offerings? I love to read your comments! Thanks so much for visiting, if you’re ready to go to the next blog to see what Sandy has in store for you,  just click the button below:

Also- don’t forget that my team and I are having our next BOGO (Buy One Get One Free) Sale on Wednesday June 8th from 6-9 pm at the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church (816 Route 50 in Burnt Hills). We will have 7 demonstrators there selling their retired Stampin’ Up! stamps, ink, paper, punches, tools, ribbon, embellishments, dies and much more! The way our BOGO works is this- you go shop around the room, pick out all the things you want, you go to the check-out table and we total up your retired purchases. Then we give you your total to go sit at a New Catalog table and you get to pick out the equivalent in NEW catalog products!! WIN-WIN! (we just add tax/shipping on the new). This is our 5th time offering this sale, and it goes really well! We prefer cash for payment as it really helps us divide up the orders at the end of the night. We have a free gift for paying in cash- Hope you can make it!! 🙂
