Retired

Farewell Lovely As A Tree

What can I say...I'll definitely be missing the Lovely as a Tree when it officially retires June 3rd. 

Did you know...it is 18 years old?  The longest running stamp set.  It's timeless tree images will fill any landscape and keep you in tune with nature.  They're great for watercoloring, stamping techniques and more.

Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set

 

As I take a stroll down memory lane, I'm reminded of how I developed as a stamper, card maker, photographer, as well as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  We all start at the beginning, but we don't always realized how far we've come.

Lovely as a Tree - Clear Block Shadow Background Technique

Lovely as a Tree Embossed Resist Glitter: 

TIPS before starting: 

  1. Mix Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder and Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter together to get a glittery embossing powder.
  2.  Create "masking template": 
    • Temporarily adhere a 2-3/8"  x 4" piece of scrap cardstock in the very center of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of scrap cardstock (I used crumb cake). 
    • Trace around it, then remove it.  Use the tracing lines to cut out the center of the cardstock. 
    • Now the crumb cake piece will have a "window" for you to use for stamping and sponging.

Lovely as a Tree - Versamark Resist 

Tips for best results:

  1. Use Glossy Paper (retiring)
  2. Stamp images with Versamark Ink.
  3. Brayer or sponge ink over entire piece of stamped glossy paper.  Versamark stamped images will resist the ink.
  4. Optional:  add additional stamped images with another color.

Last, but not least, here's a Lovely as a Tree blast from the past (2005).   Not only does this card remind me of my earlier days, but reminds of where I  started with my stamping, as I had only been stamping for a couple of years by then. 

This card was created prior to starting my blog.  At the time, I was sharing my creations on the Splitcoaststampers online community.  I actually used a scanner to "capture" my cards and then uploaded them to the community.  I've come a long way since then.  To a camera, then added a photo tent, then upgraded my camera and now use my phone.  

Lovely as a Tree - Multicolored Heat Embossing

  1. Stamp tree with Versamark ink.
  2. Then sprinkle various colors of embossing powders in specific areas.  Just take a pinch for each area.
  3. When removing the excess - don't put it back in the embossing powder jars, as all of the colors will be mixed together. 
  4. Melt with heat tool and watch your creation come to life!

If you do own the Lovely as a Tree stamp set, I hope you enjoy this retirement showcase.  

If you don't have the Lovely as a Tree stamp set, you'll want to get it now, before it's gone.  As you can see from above, there is so much you can do with it!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Let's Talk Cutting Tools: Stampin' Trimmer & Big Shot

I know for some of you, you may have been alarmed to discover that the Big Shot and Stampin' Trimmer is being discontinued.  And, I've been receiving questions of why and more.

In today's post, I'd like to share more information regarding these decisions by Stampin' Up! and what the plan is for transitioning to replacement products.  Hopefully this will help you understand their decisions.

Retiring Big Shot Products 

If you've seen the retired list, you may have noticed that the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and Accessories are being discontinued (though, not dies and folder)

Stampin' Up! is making some big changes to our die-cutting and embossing product line.   After extensive research, demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, they've decided to move in a new direction and are  optimistic about this new course.

Unfortunately, innovation requires risk, and in our pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line, we’re experiencing more significant challenges than we originally planned for, including some transition issues.  These will take more time to resolve.  We know this may create some challenges for some of you, and for that, we apologize.  

Below are the Big Shot "basic" products that will be discontinued:

 

Retiring Stampin' Trimmer Products & Transition

We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer.

There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe.  

Stampin' Trimmer Cutting Blades
currently unorderable,
will be available
on/off until September
 

Replacement cutting blades

Stampin' Up! has ordered Stampin' Trimmer Cutting Blades, what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help Stampin' Trimmer owners during this transition.  We have increased the order limit for the blades from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). 

From now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier.  Throughout these months, we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again.  (I recommend doing this, so you don't miss out.  See graphic below)

Get on the email list for Stampin' Trimmer Cutting Blades #dostamping #stampinup

I hope you found this information helpful. 

For me, I'm planning to continue to use my Stampin' Trimmer and Big Shot, both personally and at classes, with current and new dies/folders coming in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, I'm also very excited to see what is coming...I LOVE new stuff!

If you have additional questions regarding these products, let me know and I'll do my best to answer them for you.

In the meantime...Get Your Last Chance Products!

Tips for shopping the Retires List:

If you've never gone through a Stampin' Up! retired list before, let me give you some pointers:

  1. If you have any bundles from the Occasions or Annual Catalog on your shopping list, get them NOW.  Even if the individual products carry over, the bundle price will not.  (Bundle pricing is only good for the catalog they appear in first)
  2. Retiring 2017-2019 In Color products tend to sell out fast.  So stock up on paper, ink refills, ribbon and more - sooner than later!!
  3. Products only available while they last.  

Be sure to shop the RETIRE LIST early so you don't miss out on your favorites!

Enjoy~Dawn O
