I love fancy fold cards but I also love simplicity. So this is a card I created for one of my OnStage swaps using the Just Because Host stamp set in the Occasions Catalog. It’s a double front fold card that’s really quite simple to create. You will notice that the stamps in this set actually come with the sentiments attached. To give me more flexibility since I really wanted this to be a thank you card I just cut the rubber stamp making it 2 separate stamps. Then I used the thank you stamp that comes in the set. I can always but the stamp back together on a clear block…so don’t fear…give it a try! And to make it really easy since I was making 20 of these cards I used the Stamparatus to making positioning the stamps easy.
Get Them Before They’re Gone! All the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog and Occasions Catalog Host stamp sets will retire as of June 4! You need to earn these stamp sets with Stampin’ Rewards. There are two way to earn them.
Have a private class or party (either online or in person) and earn them with a qualifying order. I still have dates open on my calendar through the end of May.
Or place a qualifying order of $150 or more.
See these stamps sets and details up close and personal HERE.
Now let me show you the inside of the card and why this is called a double front card.
When you open the card you find the sentiment on what appears to be another card but smaller. Love this cute sentiment. It’s from the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Sets that’s fa collection of wonderful sentiments.
And once you open the second front you have a place to write your own thoughts to the person you are thanking. Of course if you aren’t one to write long lengthy thoughts you could always stamps some surprise 😉
I love to hear from you! Please leave me any questions you may have or comments about today’s project.

This birthday card was created using just one of the many cute bundles that are now on the retiring list. The Birthday Cheer Bundle has fun images, great sentiments and a couple of awesome dies. Here it is done in Blueberry Bushel. Layer this fun die over a white background like I did or add color behind each package for a fun look. Check out all the stamps on the retiring list and make sure you order any that are on your wish list especially if it’s a must have. Do it ASAP! And don’t forget to order refills and other products you may want in the retiring In Colors. These will go quickly!
Some bundles will be retiring but you will still see the stamp set. Know that this just means that they will be unbundling the items as far as pricing but you will still be able to get the stamp set and dies or punch in the new catalog. If you would like to take advantage of the 10% discount make sure you purchase the bundle before the new catalog goes live.
With the exception of background stamps, Stampin’ Up! will no longer have wood or clear mount stamps. In the new catalog all stamps will be cling or photopolymer. These wood and clear mount stamps are showing as retired stamps when in reality they will be carried over to the new catalog but as cling stamps. Since they are not marked on the list you can find them on this Carry Over Stamps PDF.
