Let It Ride Retires

Stampin’ Up!’s Let It Ride stamp set retires, as does the Crackle Paint background stamp, and the Copper Trim. See details below.

Stampin’ Up! recently released its Last-Chance List. What does this mean? It means a host of Stampin’ Up! stamp sets, coordinating dies and framelits, Designer Series Paper, ribbon, and more won’t be available after June 2 (or while supplies last. A number of products have already sold out.) Some of the items are discounted.

Why? Because a brand-new catalog releases June 3, It’s filled with a ton of brand-new product to help you in your paper crafting endeavors. Stampin’ Up! must make room in its warehouse for the new offerings.

Let It Ride Card

The card above I created for a friend’s birthday actually uses three products retiring from Stampin’ Up!’s offerings:

Let It Ride Retires

Oftentimes, I sell all of my retiring stamp sets, but I’m going to keep this one. I just love all of the sentiments and feel they can be used in a variety of situations and a variety of events. “Take Life by the Reins” offers a perfect greeting for graduates, as well as the “Go for It” phrase.

Here are a few pointers for how this card came together:

  • Stamped the Crackle Paint background in Crumb Cake onto Very Vanilla card stock
  • Used Black Memento Ink for the horse and colored him with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends
  • Gently pulled apart the Copper Trim and afixed it to the card. (Don’t you think the little knot looks like a horse’s tail?)

Live as if someone left the gate open!

Stampin' Up! Let It Ride

Stampin’ Up! Let It Ride

Hello Stampers!

“Live as if someone left the gate open.”

I just love that sentiment, and it could be used for a variety of things. It’s so inspirational! It’s a part of the Let it Ride stamp set offered in Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Catalog (page 45). This set features some horse images and other awesome sayings such as : Take Life By the Reins and Let it Ride.

The card today was created by my team member Ginger Borneman for a team swap in January. We featured stamps and products from the Occasions Catalog. She also used the brand-new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. These are a great bargain with 13 dies included in the set for $35.
