Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop Retirement List

Welcome to the May edition of the Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop!

Today we are blogging about anything related to the Retirement List. Every year, some of our favourites (and maybe some not so favourite) products retire. There are quite a few stamp sets and other products that I will miss when they retire after 31 May. If you would like to view the retirement list for the Occasions Catalogue please click here and for the Annual Catalogue click here and for the retiring list with discounts click here. Get in quick to purchase those last minute retiring products.

One set I will miss is the Magical Day stamp set.

Why is this set retiring??!! I will miss this set for girls and boys birthday cards and other projects. I recently used this set to make keyrings using shrinky dink plastic for my onstage swaps for April 2018 Onstage in Perth and everyone I swapped with loved them! If you want to read about these just click here.

The first card is made using the Magical Day Stamp Set teamed up with the Rainbow thinlit dies. Unicorns and rainbows make the perfect combination! The Rainbow thinlit dies are also on the retirement list (sniff sniff). I used the Large Number Dies on this card. Guess what? They are retiring too! Why? I have no idea why but there is no way I am parting with any of these sets, I am not done creating with them yet.

Do you see another of my favourites on this card that is retiring? The Teeny Tiny Stamp Set is retiring too (insert sad face). This set I have used numerous times for many different occasions, tiny sentiments perfect to punch out with the Classic Label Punch. Thankfully this punch is sticking around!

For the next card I couldn’t go past the wizard in the Magical Day Stamp Set mounted on a Night of Navy card base with a Prussian Blue Brusho background. To achieve this effect I sprayed a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock using a spritzer spray with water. Tap some on some brusho crystal colour onto the card and then spray with water again. Keep adding colour until you are happy with the look. Let it dry completely. Once dry, add this to your card. How cool does it look? Super magical if you ask me.

I just had to add some of the Myths and Magic Specialty Washi Tape. I love how it sparkles. This card is completed once again with the Large Number Dies (I am so glad that I own these). I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink then heat embossed the White Embossing Powder over the top. I think this really “pops” against the Night of Navy card stock.

If many of your favourites are retiring don’t despair! I love the new Annual Catalogue, its jam packed with lots of fun new products. If you want to get your hands on a new 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue get in touch with me and I will get one to you. If you want to order any of our retiring products I’ll do my best to order this for you. Only available until 31 May or while stocks last!

  1. Oooo I just love that brusho background! Both cards are fabulous, I’m totally with you – why isn’t this set carrying over?! I ordered the rainbow builder dies after using yours, and I also use teeny tiny sentiments and the number framelits all the time. Sniff sniff. Sounds like we are all hoarding those!


  2. Ah-may-zing cards Mandy!!! I’m keeping pretty much everything you used to make these – they are sad losses!! The only exception is Teeny Tiny Sentiments. I’m ready for some new greetings to play with. That was one of the first sets I ever bought – it’s wood mounted in an old-style clam shell case! Kelly x
