Once per year, Stampin' Up! discontinues stamps and accessories from their annual catalog. The list of retiring products was announced on Wednesday and demonstrators got their first peek at the 2020-21 Annual Catalog that will be released in June. There are many stamps and accessories that I will be sad to see go, but there is so much good stuff coming!
Please note, the Stampin' Blends are not retiring, but they will no longer be offered as single markers. They will now be offered only in combo packs of the light and the dark for each color.
Retiring stamp sets are guaranteed to be available through May 22. However, paper, dies, punch, ribbons, and all accessories are only available while supplies last. Many things are already beginning to sell out!
Since I can't share any of the upcoming goodies with you yet, I'm going to be sharing projects using some of my favorite retiring stamps and accessories over the next few weeks. Today, I have two cards using the Varied Vases stamp set. For both of these cards, I created a pattern using one of the solid vase stamps. Both cards also use Granny Apple Green, Crushed Curry, and Gorgeous Grape.
The Varied Vases and its sister set, Vibrant Vases, are beautiful stamp sets that are fun to work with to create a variety of simple cards. They also have a matching punch that will punch out the vases. The punch is not retiring, but if you want the matching stamp set, be sure to get it before it's gone!
