Stampin' Up! Number of Years is Retiring!

Number-of-years-anniversary-card

Stampin' Up! Number of Years is retiring and it is great for making anniversary cards.  The companion to this set, Large Number Framelits,  is also retiring!

BIG occasions need BIG numbers. Choose an event—birthday, anniversary, new school year—and add a number for instant personalization. Buy it once, use it often. Great on its own or combined with images from other sets for different looks.

This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set. Combine individual stamps to build the final image you want in the colors you want.

Quantity: 29 photopolymer stamps

The bigger, the better when it comes to numbers. Create large die-cut numbers in seconds with Framelits dies and the Big Shot. Framelits’ open design allows you to place them where you want for precise cutting. Layer several die cuts or use them individually.

* 11 dies
* Largest image: 3/4" x 3-1/8"

Here is one of the anniversary cards that I made recently with these retiring Stampin' Up! products.  Let's take a look at the video.

Tips-cardmaking-choosing-colors-layers

Lisa's Inklings:

  • If you are using designer paper on your creation, let the colors in your selection lead your choices for embellishments, inks, card stock, etc.
  • When in doubt, limit your color choices to 2-3 colors.
  • Remember that contrast is important to make your layers/elements stand out unless you want a monochromatic look.

Easy Stampin' Up! Birthday Cards

Easy-stampin-up-birthday-card-birthday-memoriesOne of my favorite retiring group of products from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog is this Birthday Delivery stamp set and coordinating framelits bundle and the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper.

The base of this card is one of our colors that is leaving during the new COLOR REVAMP.  If you love "Soft Sky", be sure to get your ink refill and card stock now!

Some crafty folks see fussy cutting as tedious work but I love to do it when chatting on the phone or watching TV.  This paper is awesome with these fun and colorful animal images for birthdays especially for the young folk!   You'll see in today's video tutorial my process of putting this card together.  (Excuse my headset cord!  I'll work on controlling that in future videos!)

Let's take a look at the video...

I'll be sharing some more birthday cards with these products on my Facebook Live tomorrow evening. Be sure to tune in at 7:30 PM, Central Time.

Do You Have A Stamparatus?

Stamparatus146276GDo you have a Stamparatus?   It's a must-have tool for all stampers, the Stamparatus helps you perfectly align stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and precisely, and get complete ink coverage.

It was created by stampers for stampers, so it has all the features you want:

* Compatible with red rubber and photopolymer stamps
* 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
* Rulers on 2 sides for quick measuring
* 2 open sides so you can use larger paper
* Multiple hinges for more placement options
* 2 reversible plates for 4 sides to work with
* 1 foam mat for use with photopolymer
* 1 base with grid
* Magnet storage areas

If you have a Stamparatus, you know what an awesome tool it is for stamp placement!  If you don't have one yet...not to worry! This tool will be available in the new Stampin' Up! catalog in June.

Stampin' Up! has been awesome in providing training videos.  Here's a new one that was released last week.  The trainer gives some advice on using pressure when using the Stamparatus.

If you were not able to get a Stamparatus during the early reserve period, put it on your wish list for June 2018 when it will be available in the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.
