Select Retiring Stamp Sets (A-L) & a Parade of 46 Cards

On Monday, Stampin’ Up! released a list of all the products that will no longer be offered after June 3 (or will be discontinued when products are sold out). The heart of Stampin’ Up! products is found in the stamp sets, so I’m sharing some of my favorites that are retiring – along with samples I’ve created with each. This parade of cards and stamp sets (you can click on the sets to see them in my online store) includes 24 stamp sets (or bundles) and 46 projects.

You can click on any of the projects to see the original post for each in my online store:

So, what do you think? Are there some stamp sets (or coordinating products) in this list that you need to grab up before they are gone? While I love so many of these sets and will be sad to see them retired, I’m thrilled for the new products that are being introduced in the 2019 Annual Catalog. Yippee!

If you have to have any of these products, then get them now. Stamp sets will be guaranteed through May 26 (Stampin’ Up! makes their stamp sets) but all the coordinating dies, punches and papers will be gone on June 3 or when they are sold out.

Thanks for stopping by today!

    • You are so sweet, Frenchie! Thanks so much! My goal is to inspire you to create, so it sounds like I did that. ♥ Hope your Easter is lovely, too!

  6. Well, I don’t know about anyone else but when I read your opening statement and knew a parade was coming I stopped reading and went and made a nice hot cup of tea. Then I sat down and enjoyed scrolling through your amazing cards 3 times – just relaxing and absorbing all the colors and artistry. Thank you Brian – that was more fun then an Easter basket. LOL

    • Thanks so much, Grace! Believe me – it’s just as fun for me to flip through and select projects with these sets as it is for those who get to review them here. I have to make new projects so I can create more parades. 🙂

  7. Brian, this is an amazing parade of cards, all beautifully done. You should be proud! Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful color stories and designs this year. I can’t wait to see what you create with the new catalog products!

  8. I love a parade and seeing so much of your creative genius is delightful!

  9. Wow! Your cards are AHmazing! I love your blog. It’s so beautiful and inspiring.

    • Thanks so much, Sheryl! I appreciate that! You can follow my blog – new posts each day – by adding your email to the side bar under “don’t miss a thing!”. ♥

  10. Loved this post. Beautiful, beautiful work. Thank you for sharing.

  11. The one shocker is that Lovely as a Tree is retiring. That must be the oldest stamp ever! Thanks for inspiring me. I guess it is time to revisit these stamp sets.

  12. Hi Brian – Love your blog. Which DSP has the frogs in it?

    • Thanks, Lisa! The frogs were featured in the Toil and Trouble DSP from the 2018 Holiday Catalog. I made this card during the crossover between the two. 🙂

  13. Happened upon this wonderful post while searching for something else. What a lovely parade!
    Speaking of retired sets…after 10 years of being an SU customer and 4 years as a demonstrator, I have reached my storage limit. What do you do with retired sets, keep them or sell them?
