So TODAY is the very last day for you to order from this years current catalogue and the Spring/Summer catalogue too! The link for all the remaining retiring goodies is HERE, directly through my shop :-) 
Please, please, if there is anything you want on that list order it tonight as they will NOT be available after tonight!
So, I have one last hoorah with the lovely Secret Garden today to share with you today. Well, actually it's 2 cards with slightly different layouts but both the same stamps and colours ;-)
So, to start today I made this card with Naturals Composition DSP background layer topped with a Doily and Secret Garden flowers and Vellum Leaves...
Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana flowers with some SaB twine, this is coming back in different colours tomorrow :-)
Opps, this banner got dipped in an open ink pad!
and a slightly different version to finish...
OK, so tomorrows the BIG DAY! The fab new Catalogue launches here at midnight so remember to stop by and have a look :-)))))

Retirement Lists from Stampin' Up!

Hi there,
So today we say goodbye to some of the stamp sets from the current annual catalogue and of course some of the accessories too! Some items have up to 50% off as well, bonus! 
But please remember- once they are gone, they are gone! Every year we get people desperate for something from the list and unfortunately after the 30th June (or before if they sell out) then you will not be able to get hold of them so if there is something you "need" then please order ASAP.
So, the quickest and easiest way to order is via my ONLINE SHOP
or of course you can EMAIL ME with your order too :-)
Wanna see what's going??
My favourite bargain from the stamps is Just Married (just £10.17 in wood) and the one I'm going to miss the most? has to be... OK a couple really, You're my Hero, Rev up the Fun, and all the wheel stamps are going, I'm so going to miss these too!
Bargain of the list IMO: Perfect Pennant Bigz XL die, just £20.27- 30%off and the things I'll miss the most? Tons but especially...ALL the retiring ribbon- I adore ribbon and love plenty to choose from so I'll be sad to see any of that going (retiring in colour stitched satin especially) and I'll miss Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit and Midnight Muse. I'm sad to see all these colours going and I personally hope they bring these back in the next colour shake up. And finally Dress Up Framelits, love these for quick and elegant cards.
The following stamp sets will NOT be carried through to new catalogue...
Happy Watercolour, Peaceful Petals, My Mother, Blessed Easter, Peachy Keen, Hello Sailor, Language of Love, Perfect Couple, Celebrate with Us, Spiral Spins, Simple Stems, So Very Grateful, Eggstra Spectacular, Pomp and Circumstance and Cool Kid 
please order your favourites today!
But, in the mean time if you need anything remember to order soon to be sure you get the goodies before they sell out and do get in touch if you need any help.
Thanks for looking today

Seeing Double with Mr and Mrs stamp and the Expressions Thinlits teamed with Hearts a Flutter from Stampin' Up!

Hello there,
As I have been enjoying the weather and completing a few magazine projects this week I have been a touch absent from my blog :-s I have been popping up on Facebook as I often do when I don't get on here so if you are a Facebooker then please feel free to follow my page and keep up to date with the goings on at chez Rae ;-) 
So, this evening I am going to share two cards with you to double up in apologies for my absence here.
The first card uses the stamp set 'Mr and Mrs' which unfortunately seems to be sold out. I teamed it with the also retiring with Raspberry Ripple cardstock and ink, I am really going to miss this colour :-( The white card layer was embossed using the Lacy Brocade folder which is a bargain at just £4.49 at the moment,
 Ribbon flowers are also retired but I have a couple of free tutorials on how to make ribbon flowers HERE and HERE, the leaves are punched using the Bird Punch
 the Mr&Mrs stamped panel was die cut using the Apothecary Accents die 
 Now, second card for tonight...
I love the Expressions thinlits dies that contain this Love word as well as Merry and Thankful. I teamed it with another set I love which is Hearts a Flutter, (click on the Label at the end of this post marked Hearts a Flutter to see more cards using this fab set!)
This card uses a colour combo of Strawberry Slush (ink: staying, ruffled ribbon: going), Midnight Muse (going) and Sahara Sand (also staying)
 we die cut the love word from Midnight Muse card and also Silver Glimmer Paper (Gold Glimmer is on offer this week FYI ;-)) layered over but slightly off set so it 'popped' off the card
 and the ruffled ribbon in Strawberry Slush
OK, that's all for tonight, I'll be back soon with more cards to share with you and please remember that BOTH the current catalogues finish at the end of JUNE! That's just 4 days!! So if there is anything you want/need please order asap to be sure you get what you want before it goes for good.
Thanks for visiting today and for your patience with me ;-)

Blossom Party Flower Die with Dictionary stamp by Stampin' Up!

I have a super quick card today for you, you could easily knock a a whole bunch of these up in a flash and use all your scraps of card too! It's extra quick as I have used the Bigz Blossom flower die (which is retiring at the end of the month) and as it's a bigz die you can cut loads of layers together making these a snap ;-)
So, I went with a pretty colour combo of Smoky Slate, Very Vanilla and Coastal Cabana, (this seems to be a favourite of mine right now!) to make this card...
 I used the (also retiring) ruffled ribbon and XL rhinestones in the centre of the flower too
 and the Thank You is from Simply Celebrate in Basic Grey with the background using the Dictionary stamp in Smoky Slate
OK, I have to dash off as Zack is in the school assembly today so I need to get ready for that!
Have a fab rest of your day and 
Happy Stampin'!

Rev Up The Fun stamp set and Gorgeous Grunge by Stampin' Up!

Hello there,
Today's and all of this weeks cards are going to be a last hoorah with some retiring stamps, I will be sad to see all the ones I'm sharing with you so took the opportunity to have a play with them in my last stamp-a- stack class before they go for good. remember to place your order asap if you want your own sets :-)
So, today's card uses the Rev Up the Fun! Stamp set, I love this one, well I must say I always love a versatile set that can be used for a man tbh as they are generally soooo hard to make cards for! So when I find a useful set I do cling to it ;-) Anyway I made this card by first stamping on the Watercolour Wonder DSP using Gorgeous Grunge, (this paper is also going in 2 weeks too btw) and adding a car from Rev Up the Fun onto a banner cut from a framelit
 We also added a know of stitched grosgrain ribbon with a cute little vintage trinket safety pin through it 
 just glueing the left hand side down for a bit of movement with the banner
 Now, this week I joined in the class and made the card to send some to my friend for her son who is raising money for a charity to visit Kenya, you can read about it HERE, so I made this card in a landscape version too ;-)
 and finally some stamped off decoration inside to finish today
OK, that's me for today,
I hope you like today's card and please do let me know if you would like any help with ordering or using SU! products :-)))
Stampin' Hugs,
