Welcome to the Stampers Dozen monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you joined us. This month, we feature handmade cards and projects featuring items that will be retiring from Stampin’ Up!’s 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. If you see something you want, get it sooner rather than later. Retiring products won’t be available after Monday, May 1. Some of the items are reduced in price up to 60 percent. Click here to visit the online store.
Be sure to visit all of the participating blogs to gain paper crafting inspiration. Look for the list near the end of this post.
Peaceful Moments Envelope Fun Fold
I combined a host of retiring products with the Envelope Fun Fold. See this post for other examples of this unique fold.
Tea Boutique 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (retiring), 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″, scored on the diagonal
Basic White card stock measuring 8 x 51/4, scored at 4
One half of the white embossed with the Gingham Embossing Folder (retiring)
Garden Green card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Basic White circle die cut with Layering Circles Dies (retiring)
Birthday sentiment from Peaceful Moments Stamp Set (retiring), stamped in Crushed Curry
Garden Green scallop circle from Layering Circles Dies (retiring)
Here’s a look at the inside:

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and for following along on the hop. Enjoy
Each new Stampin’ Up! catalog presents opportunities to play with new stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, embellishments, and more. The Uniquely Artistic stamp set is one of those new products. Find it on page 114 of the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. I received it with my recent registration for a Stampin’ Up! virtual event. It’s one of my favorite things about being a demonstrator: receiving sneak peeks of new products.
When I received the set, I wasn’t quite sure where to start with a card design. So, I turned to the Annual Catalog and used the the samples within for inspiration.
I CASEd the above card from the catalog sample on page 115. It features the colors of Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron. I embossed the background piece with the Gingham Embossing folder.
Uniquely Artistic Card Samples
The two cards below use heat embossing as the main technique.
The card above uses a sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set punched with the Double Oval Punch. I grabbed the gorgeous piece of Designer Series Paper from the Abstract Beauty 6 x 6 package. (If you love this Designer Series Paper, order it now. It’s going to retire!)
This beautiful card uses products from the Love & Happiness Bundle from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. Hint: This, too, is retiring, so grab it before it’s gone.
See this blog post for more card samples using this brand-new set
