One of the things I love about attending Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage events is getting together with my stamping friends and swapping cards. Here are some of the cards I received. *Each of these cards are made with items that are retiring. If you see something you like, order now before it’s too late!
Susan used the Tutti-frutti Designer Series Paper and Layering Love Stamp set. I love the large sentiments in this stamp set. It will be retiring in May so grab it now while you still can! You can check out the other sentiments in this set in the product list below.
Nancy used Butterflies Thinlits and Garden in Bloom Stamp Set to create this fun card. The thinlits, stamp set, and Fluttering Embossing Folder used on the envelope are retiring. Get them before they “fly” away! Here’s a peek at the inside of this card.
I love the way Nancy cut out the circle on the front of the card and had the butterfly wings peeking through! So creative!
Karen used the Watercolor Wings Stamp Set and Bold Butterfly Framelits Die to create this beautiful card. This butterfly stamp set and Framelits are also retiring! I love all the layers and texture on this card!
This thank you card created by Mary Anne is sure to brighten anyone’s day! I absolutely love the Flower Shop Stamp Set and matching Pansy Punch and I may shed a few tears over these retiring. I have used them for all different occasions! I love the way Mary Anne heated embossed the flowers with white embossing powder then watercolored such bright and cheery colors. She used my favorite paper too, Shimmery White. Thank goodness the paper is sticking around!!!
Anne-Marie made matching red tags for all the PALS attending the event. She is just the sweetest and is from my home state of Massachusetts! She used the Country Livin’, Guy Greetings, and Hardwood Stamp sets to create this masculine birthday card using the masking technique. For some reason I want to sing “These boots were made for walking..” The Guy Greetings stamp set used on this card is retiring but Hardwood and Country Livin’ will be in the new annual catalog.
I hope this showcase of cards has inspired you today! Check back tomorrow to see more beautiful cards I received. Be sure to check out the retiring items below so you don’t have any regrets later!

Thanks for showing off some of the beautiful creativity you received at On Stage. What a treasure trove! Can’t wait to see more~
Thank you Jeanie!
Love the tip, Nancy! Thank you for sharing. The cards are beautiful….so creative and fun.
Love the swaps! Each one is so special in it’s own way! Such great ideas for color combinations and different uses for the stamps and papers etc. I have been using the Flower Shop stamp set a lot lately after letting it sit for eons on the shelf.
I really enjoyed your parade of swaps. Each one is a beauty and so much inspiration. TFS!
