Creative Inking Blog Hop — Goodbye Forever Delightfully Detailed Suite

Hello stampers and crafty friends! Welcome to my blog; and to the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of May!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Colleen Vassos' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop.


The month of May is a mix of emotions when it comes to changing out the current Annual Stampin' Up! catalog with a new one.  Yes, it is sad to see our favorite products retiring and never available to purchase and play with, buuut, all those feelings can fade away when new goodies are seen in the new beautiful catalog.


One of the many products I'm going to miss rests all within the Delightfully Detailed Suite of products found on pages 38-39 in the current 2018-2019 Annual catalog.  I absolutely fell in love with the color combination of Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron...three beautiful colors that make up all the detail in the variety of goodies available in this suite.  The main product is the Detailed With Love stamp set, but the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More Card Pack is filled with 56 fun cards and accessories to help create easy and elegant greeting cards.  Yes, these are the same cards that help a beginning crafter create quick and easy memory books (even novice scrapbookers can enjoy inserting the fun patterns to any full layout).


Pair up the Memories & More card pack with the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards & Envelopes and you've got the easiest part of crafting greeting cards all within your inky fingers.  Although, if you wanted, you wouldn't need ink!  GASP!  But, it is very true!  All you would need is a variety of adhesives (Snail, Stampin' Dimensionals, and Multipurpose Liquid Glue), a trimmer and Paper Snips, and you'll a fun-filled day of stocking up your stash of greeting cards that hit the Birthday, Thank You, and Thinking of You categories.


I do love my ink, though.  The ink pads and Stampin' Write markers are my main inks because nothing is more exciting than to get a handmade card in the mail than to first feel the excitement of a hand stamped envelope to deliver it in.  Even the postal carrier will have a smile on their face...I guarantee it!


The Delightfully Detailed Note Cards are already set up with a background watercolor wash in a variety of colors.  All you have to do is find one of the 56 cards that you like to adorn with stickers, ribbons/bakers twine, and Faceted Dots.  Now, with this card, I did toss in a little extra for this Thank You by die cutting some ovals that layer each other and coordinate with the Blackberry Bliss card base.


This card is using a regular Whisper White Thick cardstock base cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" that I color washed Blackberry Bliss ink onto the front using my Aqua Painter.  The detailed pattern paper is one of the pieces that came with the Memories & More card pack and I couldn't bear to cut it up.  The fun punched corners was done using the Detailed Trio Punch...happy thing because it is NOT on the retiring list of products!  YAY!!  Buuut, it is bundled with the Detailed With Love stamp set.  If you love the variety of images in that set...and, you love the punch...why not save 10% and get them together?!!  See how fun it is to stamp the envelope?!!  I bet that if you received this fun package in your mailbox that you would start opening it while walking back to the house.  Am I right?


The Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog retirement list and Occasions Catalog retirement list is released.  I'm really going to miss this fun card of the favorite color combos to create with These items are while supplies last and will not be coming back to the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.
