April 4, 2023 is the day! The DISCOUNTED Last Chance Sale, with savings up to 60% off, begins. Supplies are limited so my advice is to shop early! Once an items sells out, it will be gone forever.

60% Last Chance Products

There are 2 (TWO) Lists; one for each of the catalogs retiring: the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog AND the January-April Mini Catalog. You can view the lists here:

2022-23 ANNUAL CATALOG Retiring List

January – April Mini Catalog Retiring List

My tactic is to take the time to mark up my catalog with Retiring items (usually I put an “R” in red pen) next to the item that is Retiring.

PLEASE NOTE: With many of the stamp sets and dies that are carrying over to the new catalog, that are sold in a discounted bundle, the DISCOUNTED BUNDLE is retiring, but not the stamp set/dies.



With the announcement of a major “REFRESH” of the Stampin’ Up! color palatte, below are the 11 Core Colors Retiring. Please be sure to stock up on any Card Stock, Ink Pads, Ink Refills, Markers, etc.



I am excited that Fresh Freesia will be staying with us and will become one of the new core colors!

New Colors To Love

New Colors will be available when the catalog goes live May 4, 2023.


Thank you for your support of my small business. I appreciate you so much. If you purchased from me during the previous year, a new catalog will automatically be mailed to you.

Happy Shopping the Discounted Last Chance sale!


I Was So Silly!

I was so silly when choosing my free items from the Jan/Feb 2023 Sale-A-Bration catalog! Usually, I place a large supply order in January ( I stock up on my envelopes, adhesives, dimensionals, card stock and other consumables) to earn free Sale-A-Bration items on purchases I would normally make throughout the year. A 6 month Paper Pumpkin subscription always gets added to my order so I can earn a Free Sale-A-Bration item on that too! When choosing my free items, I really thought I could live without the Favored Flowers DSP. To be honest, I thought the paper was ‘too busy’ for me. I wound up selecting it anyway thinking I would only use the ‘other’ side with the subtle geometric patterns.

My first choice was the Dainty Flowers and I was waiting very impatiently for that to arrive! Well my order came today, and as I was unpacking it, the first thing I went to was the Favored Flowers DSP. Those flowers! They were so striking I just had to cut that gorgeous paper up to use those flowers! Those flowers I thought I didn’t like. They are just so gorgeous! Silly me! Turns out that I can’t live without that paper!

Favored Flowers DSP in Calypso Coral

The first card I made was using the Calypso Coral hues. I did balance the busy floral side with the more subtle geometric side to create the perfect blend to really make those gorgeous flowers stand out without overwhelming the whole card. The sentiment and label shape are from the Potted Geranium bundle. I hope you like this as much as I do!

Let me show you what I made:

I used the same layout for the 2nd card I made:

Favored Flowers DSP in Blackberry Bliss

This time I used the Blackberry Bliss colored flowers and a sentiment from the Beautifully Happy Stamp set which you can also get for FREE from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. I added a ribbon here so I could play along with the #TicTacToeChallenge, #TTTC194. I used the Diagonal line of Patterned Paper, Flowers & Ribbon/Bow for my entry.

You can check out all the TicTacToeChallenge entries at their website.

Lastly, I fussy cut a flower from this DSP and propped it against a black background textured with the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder.

Favored Flowers DSP meets the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder
After seeing both the ‘subtle’ side and the bold floral side, I think you’ll agree – You. Need. This. Paper.

The Favored Flower DSP (# 160833) is a 12×12 pack that is FREE with a qualifying purchase of $50 or more. You can shop my online store here to stock up on essentials, or treat yourself to something on your wish list, and get this paper just as quick as you can! I was so silly to think I could live without this paper, but you don’t have to be also!

Flowing Flowers meets Fresh Freesia

I’m calling today’s project Flowing Flowers meets Fresh Freesia and it is a take off the project I shared with you the other day but in a different color combination; you can see the original card here. All I did was to change up the colors and the sentiment Here is my card using the Flowing Flowers stamp set using Fresh Freesia and Highland Heather.

Flowing Flowers meets Fresh Freesia

Which color combination do you like better? Leave me a comment and tell me your favorite. I love hearing from you so let’s carry on the conversation 🙂 (Leaving me a comment also helps my blog get better ranking so more people can find me!)

The Stamp Set

If you could only buy 1 stamp set (terrifying thought, isn’t it?) I would urge you to consider Flowing Flowers.

Flowing Flowers # 157880

With the beautiful floral images (3 of them) and 6 sentiments that fit so many occasions with a trendy script/block font combination, you really can’t go wrong with this stamp set. And it’s only $25! As I’ve demonstrated, you only need 2 colors of ink (2 shades of the same color family) and you can make some really pretty cards. So what are you waiting for? Order your Flowing Flowers Stamp Set today. You’ll be so happy you did!

I just couldn’t stop there!

While I had this stamp set out, I just had to ink up the stamp with the floral image with the leaves and the background. This time, however, I decided to step it up a notch! I colored the floral image with my Stampin’ Write markers to get the flower, leaves and background different colors. Then I created this fancy card stock layer using the Scalloped Contours dies. I popped up this layer on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Flowing Flowers with Scalloped Contours Dies

Now I have a few birthday, thank you and any occasion cards on hand to have at the ready when I need them! So simple So fun and so easy!

If you like my cards, please save them on Pinterest and share them on Facebook!

You can order the Flowing Flowers stamp set, and any card stock, ink, envelopes and embellishments here in my online store. Thanks for supporting my small business. I appreciate you!

Flowing Flowers

Sometimes, one simple stamp set can so much and Flowing Flowers is that stamp set! It is just a ‘stand alone’ stamp set; no coordinating dies or punch. No DSP or embellishments. Flowing Flowers has so much going for it, it doesn’t need anything else!

I chose to make today’s card using only the simplest of elements; Stamps Ink Paper. Just 2 colors of ink and 1 simple layer. Perhaps another day I will use this stamp to make more cards with more layers, and more colors and maybe fussy cut some of the flowers or sentiments out, but today, I chose a simple card.

Let’s take another look at my project:

Flowing Flowers Thank You card with Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink ink.

Simple is all you need sometimes. I started with a Basic White card base and used a Petal Pink card stock layer to frame the image layer. I inked up the large flower stamp with Petal Pink ink, then using a sponge dauber, I added some Flirty Flamingo ink directly to the rubber stamp in the flower center before stamping on the Basic White layer. I used Flirty Flamingo ink for the sentiment and finished it off by adding 3 Polished Dots. Easy, quick, and just enough! Don’t you just love the font combination in the sentiment? The script and block letter combination is so on-trend.

Flowing Flowers Stamp Set

Let’s take a closer look at the Flowing Flowers stamp set:

Flowing Flowers stamp set

Don’t you just love this stamp set? Beautiful, almost watercolor-like floral images and sentiments for all occasions. And don’t you just love those fonts? And sayings for so many different occasions. I really love that because I feel like you get so much mileage out of a stamp set that can be used for more than just one occasion. My favorite is ‘sending a card instead of a text’. It’s so easy to send a text when you want to tell a friend something, but how much more fun would it be to make and send a card instead? I’m already thinking of a few people I need to send that card too.

So if you like this Flowing Flowers stamp set, you can order it here. Please leave a comment and tell me what you think. Comments help my blog get better rankings, and better rankings help me reach more people, so please leave me a comment. Share my blog on social media too if you like what you see! Thanks for letting me share Flowing Flowers with you tonight!

I found my Inspiration from…Myself!

Seriously, I did! I usually look for inspiration all around me, but the other day a few photos came up in my memories and one of those photos was of a card I made. As soon as I saw it, I thought “I could re-create that!” And I did. Let’s take a look.

This is the card I made back in 2017. It used a stamp from a Sale-A-Bration set called Avant Garden. I used the Emboss Resist Technique to create the white image and colored background.

Now here is the card I just made. It uses the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set. The stamp has a reverse image meaning the butterfly image has no ink; just the area behind it.

Let’s take a look at the 2 cards side by side for a closer comparison.

There is inspiration all around us, but I like when I get inspiration from myself. Different images, different techniques but yet the same vibe. And by keeping the vertical ribbon with tag, it keeps the same feeling. I’m sure if you go through your stash of cards you’ve made, you’ll find a favorite that you can recreate with a current stamp set as well. If you try that, let me know and share a picture of the card you make, and the one that inspired it.

Watch me!

I had just used this same stamp set, Amazing Silhouettes, to make some quick and easy birthday cards to have on hand. In fact, I made a Facebook Live video to share how I used that stamp to make those birthday cards. You can watch that replay on Facebook here, or on YouTube here.

So after seeing this stamp set used several ways, if you want the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set, you can order it here. It is also part of bundle with a coordinating die set, and you can order that here and save 10% when you buy the bundle.


Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is going on through Feb 28th. With every $50 in product that you buy, you can earn a Free Sale-A-Bration item. There are several items that can be earned with a $100 purchase, and an exclusive Host only stamp set that you can get with a qualifying workshop or individual order of $300 or more. At this point, the Sale-A-Bration items are while supplies last, so if you have your heart set on something, get your order in as quickly as you can before an item sells out.

You can view the Sale-A-Bration catalog here. Or, you can watch a video walk through the catalog here;

And don’t forget about the limited time promotion All Together Collection. You can read all about that in yesterdays blog post which you can see here.

Thanks for stopping by My Stampin Space today. Come back tomorrow and I’ll share a project I made with my team of demonstrators yesterday during our monthly Team Meeting. In the meantime, if you’d like to order any Stampin’ Up! products, please order from my online store here.

Mad for Plaid

I just love plaid, especially buffalo check plaid, so it’s fair to say that I am Mad for Plaid! I was so excited when I saw this cute little 1/4″ Black & White Gingham ribbon in the Holiday Mini Catalog!


Even more exciting is that the one of the patterns of paper in the Peaceful Prints DSP (available for FREE during SaleABration with a qualifying $50 order) has these adorable tiny Christmas Trees in a green and Black Buffalo Check. I just knew I had to combine this paper and ribbon!

Don’t you just love this? Doesn’t it make you Mad for Plaid also? So quick and easy, but oh so cute!

How it’s made

I started with a piece of Basic Black card stock cut to 5-1/2″ x 6 and folded it in half to make a 5-1/2″ x 3″ card base. Then I added a piece of this cute DSP from the Peaceful Prints which was mounted onto a Garden Green layer. I wrapped a piece of the B&W 1/4″ Gingham ribbon around that panel and tied it in a bow, before adhering it to the card base. I stamped the sentiment in Momento Black ink onto a scrap of Basic White cardstock and fussy cut with my Paper Snips before popping it up on mini Dimensionals.

Here’s another card I made with 2 little variations:

Looks almost the same, but this time I kept the whole sentiment rather than just cropping out part of it. And I tied the ribbon in a knot, rather than a bow. Then I tied on another scrap of ribbon to give more of a rustic look.

Which card do you like best? Leave me a comment below.

The Products

The Peaceful Prints DSP has so many pretty patterns: let’s take a look:

2 each of 6 double-sied 12″x12″ designer series paper in Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Real Red & Sahara Sand.

You can easily recreate this card yourself – and earning the Free Peaceful Prints DSP is easy! Here’s how:

  • Christmas to Remember Stamp Set #156300 – $22.00
  • Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon # 156485 2@ $7.00 – $14.00
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad # 132708 – $6.00
  • Basic Black 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock # 121045 – $8.75
    • Total $50.75 – you just earned 1 Free Sale-A-Bration item!

You can shop my online store, safely & securely 24-7, when you click on this link. And thanks for shopping with me!

Last Christmas, I made a really cute Gift Card Holder using the Buffalo Check and a Moose! You can check out that post here. I guess I really have been Mad for Plaid for quite some time!
