Old Meets New – Botanical Blooms Meets In-Colors Berry Burst and Fresh Fig

I love blending old and new together.  In my house, we often keep things that others would consider trash…old boxes, toilet paper rolls, tin cans, etc…to make a brand new project with!  And, the kiddos are always along for this ride.  Old boxes become spaceships or houses, toilet paper rolls become little animal puppets or a Nativity set, and the lids of tin cans become beautiful punched tin ornaments!  The possibilities are endless!

And, that was my inspiration behind this card.  A blending of old, retiring products, and brand NEW In-Colors that will be available to customers in June.




This is an easel style card that, once opened, can stand on its own as a display piece.  And, I think this piece of work needs to be displayed. 😉  What do you think?

I was a little disappointed to see that the Botanical Blooms framelits were retiring, as I think they have many uses and fun ways to arrange the flowers with the greenery.  But, I was excited to see at what a huge discount these items are available as well!


The stamp set is guaranteed available until May 22.  But the framelits are only while supplies last!  So, if you don’t have a set of these, I recommend picking them up today!  You can do so here: Retiring Products  If you order online, please use my open hostess code: ZYBFH7PJ at checkout!

Here’s some of the other products I used on this card that are retiring and at a GREAT price right now until available:

Balloon Pop-Up Die Fun – Retiring and Discounted

Today I want to show you another Retiring and Deeply Discounted item!  The Balloon Pop-Up Dies!  You can be so creative with these from making a card front, a pop-up inside of a card, or even a candy wrapper.

Here’s the product I’m referring to:

Balloon Pop-Up Dies

This is a version of a card we made at OnStage last November.  The inside is made using this amazing Balloon Pop-Up Die.


And here’s the candy wrapper I’m referring to.  This one was given to me by my upline Kay.  Isn’t it adorable?!?!  It would make the perfect gift at a baby shower for a baby girl or boy by altering the color of the wrapper!


Stampin’ Up also updated their Clearance Rack with many great options recently discounted up to 60% off!  Check those options out here: Clearance Rack  If you choose to order anything online, please use hostess code: ZYBFH7PJ at checkout!  Thanks a bunch!

T-Shirt Builder Manly Card – Discounted and Retiring


Sometimes it takes me until the products are on the Retired List to pull them from their packaging and give them a test run.  And, that’s exactly what happened with the T-Shirt Builder Framelits Dies and the Custom Tee Stamp Set.  And, when I did, I fell in love with this manly design using both of these products.

They just so happen to be deeply discounted at prices that are invidually bought less expensive than the bundle itself!

Check it out here: Retiring Products List

tshirtAnd, each individual card can be seen below!

Perfect for a Father’s Day, Birthday, Good Luck, Congrats, or Thank You Card for your favorite Guy!  And, remember, that any item on the retiring list is only available until supplies last, so don’t delay!

If you do choose to order, please use hostess code: ZYBFH7PJ at checkout!  Thanks a bunch!

Joyfully Yours,

Retiring In Colors Blog Hop

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-Hop-300x237Welcome to the Blog Hop for April 2017. This month our theme is Retiring In-Colors 2015-2017.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog –Joyful Stampin’ or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Megan Herst at Joyful Stampin’.

I have grown to love all the in-colors from the 2015-2017 family, even though I swore I would never like Cucumber Crush.  But, even Cucumber Crush has found a place in my crafting heart and it will be so tough to say good-bye to them come May 31!

My absolute favorite in-color from this bunch is Watermelon Wonder.  It pairs with so many different color combinations and I just love its bright and cheery nature.  Puts me in a fantastic mood!  And, this brings me to our card for today.  I paired it with Crumb Cake and the Whisper White Craft pad in this card to create the “ghosted” look.


And, THIS RIBBON!  I will absolutely, positively miss this fantastic thick ribbon that all the 2015-2017 in-colors came in.

The good news is that there is still plenty of time to stock up on these fabulous set of in-color products, but likely once they run out, they are gone for good!  So be sure to stock up soon!

Thanks and enjoy the rest of the hop! See who’s next here:
