This is it! Last day to order from the current Stampin' Up! Catalog! Click the image above to take one more look through! You have until 11:50 pm Mountain Time (Stampin' Up! Time) tonight to place your last order! Go here to place your order! Don't wait until the last minute!!
While I am in Austin packing up stuff in one son's apartment to move to the other son's apartment (on the third floor no less!!) and figuring out how to get a futon and desk and who knows what else moved to the apartment or put in storage….there should be a way to shrink big things down in size so they fit in your car and then restore them to proper size when you arrive at the destination!…I thought perhaps you would like to take another look at all the retiring Stampin' Up! products. Tomorrow, May 31, will be the last day to order.
The easiest way is to go to my website here at the Online Store and click on whichever (or all) or the retiring categories you want to see. Click Show: ALL to save having to click to the next page if you want. Don't forget to check the Clearance Rack (left sidebar at the store) because you can only order Clearance doing an Online Order.
Let me know if you have questions!

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance and appreciation for those who have died in the service of our country.
Please remember to fly your flag today.
It's hard to believe that our beloved current Stampin' Up! catalog is just about over…..although we all are certainly excited for the brand new Stampin' Up! catalog to make it's debut on Friday, June 1st!
But now is the time to take action, if you have been waiting! This is the last few days of being able to purchase any of the retiring stamps or accessories. This retired list will come to an end on Thursday, May 31st. You can place your own order online HERE or you can call or email me (Karen@KarenStamps.com) with your order and I can do it for you.
Here are some items to take note of in case they interest you. Remember, anything other than stamps (which Stampin' Up! manufactures themselves) are only available while supplies last.
- All of the Definitely Decorative line is retiring. (click the Show: ALL option to easily view all the items). This is mainly the vinyl decor elements to put on walls and many other places BUT it also includes products like the Decor Blocks #116829, the Simply Adorned jewelry (but not just for jewelry!) line, some trinkets, and stencils. Be sure to check the whole listing.
- My Digital Studio Content Discs: These are priced at 60% off so they are a great deal. If you are considering getting My Digital Studio any time in the future, you should get these now because nothing on My Digital Studio really retires! You will have tons of extra artwork to play with! Even at full price, the collection was priced at 10% less than purchasing the downloads separately. Note: Purchase My Digital Studio NOW and when the new version comes out, you will get it FREE!
- The Build a Bear line is retiring! Be sure to get it while you can. Some items are even discounted!
- There are many things at the beginning of the Retired Accessories List that are discounted 25% or more! Be sure to check those out.
Here are the lists! Be sure you make them a part of your weekend reading!

And here's another cascade birthday card like yesterday, this time with cake and ice cream! The cascade design is made the same way….I used Pool Party card stock as the base and added the Sweet Shop Specialty Designer Series Paper (if you have some in your stash!)
The ice cream cones were fun to make. I punched the cone with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch #122361 and made the ice cream topper with the Cupcake Builder Punch #121807. The "sprinkles" on the vanilla ice cream cones come from the Cupcake Punch. The "strawberry" ice cream cones have dots of glitter plus a Red Glimmer Paper cherry punched with the Cupcake Punch (I think that Cupcake Punch is mighty handy!) The greeting is from the stamp set Bring on the Cake. I used markers to color in the stamp and added my own little squiggles and dots around the border with the thin end of the marker.

These cascade cards are really fun to make and hopefully make a great impression with the recipient! Aren't cupcakes great for a birthday card?! They fold flat for mailing but then they can be unfolded and placed on display if the person wants to. I saw a card similar to this one online somewhere and thought it would be so cute to make. I used Pool Party card stock but added the cute Sweet Shop Specialty Designer Series Paper (which I don't think is available any longer since it was in the Occasions Mini Catalog).
The greeting is from Bring on the Cake and the cupcakes are punched with the Cupcake Builder Punch #121807. Doesn't the Silver and Red Glimmer Paper add so much to this card?!
Come back tomorrow to see another birthday cascade card I made!
Don't forget…..lots of Stampin' Up! stamps and accessories are retiring on May 31st….which is next Thursday! Don't miss out on something you want! Stamps will be available since Stampin' Up! manufactures them; however, accessories are only available while supplies last and some are gone already! Check your list today before the last minute rush hits! Order Online HERE!
It is graduation time and certainly the new graduates are going to need to write some thank you notes for the gifts they receive. Did you know Stampin' Up! sells Note Cards #107311 that are just the right size and even come with envelopes? All you have to do is fold them on the scored line and decorate how you wish. The card size is 5" x 3 1/2".
For this thank you card, I used a scrap of the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper #125406 on the inside and cut the border with the Adorning Accents Edgelits Die #125595 and stamped with the Bordering on Romance stamp set.
Here is the inside:
Plenty of room on the inside to write a nice note to the gift-giver! Or if you don't want to do the fancy edge, you could paste the paper on the front flap of the card. Then stamp a "thank you" on the front….or a monogram with one of the Stampin' Up! alphabet sets!

When your son is graduating from college and you make cards, you want to make an extra-special graduation card for him! After thinking about many different designs, I decided on this tri-shutter card. I love how it opens up yet is simple to make. This card is a combination of current and retired stamps, wheel, paper, and embellishments…even paper from the school bookstore scrapbook package. Oh, and let's not forget using My Digital Studio to print some images for the card!
For the basic card, cut a piece of card stock 5 1/2" x 12". With your Simply Scored Scoring Tool, score the card stock at 2", 4", 8" and 10"with the card stock horizontal (12") in your scoring tool.
Using your Stampin' Up! Paper Cutter (retiring) or a hobby blade, with your card stock long ways (vertical), measure in 1 1/2" and cut a slit between the 2" and 10" score marks. Do this also on the other side.
Fold as you see in the photo (a little tricky to get it going but it will work!) and then decorate with designer paper, stamping and embellishments to your heart's content!
