Hi Stamping Friends!

It's a busy stamping Sunday as we wind down the final days of the catalogs and get ready for the release of the brand new 2014 Annual Catalog!  Here's what you need to know…

  • Last Day To Order From The Spring Occasions CatalogTODAY at 11:59pm MT
  • NEW 2014 Annual Catalog Products AvailableTOMORROW, June 2, at noon MT
  • Last Day To Order From 2013 Annual CatalogJune 4, 11:59pm MT, or while supplies last

Blendabilities Ordering Tip!  The new Blendabilities will not be immediately available once the catalog goes LIVE tomorrow.  It is estimated that they will be available in late June to early July for customers.  However, demonstrators can currently pre-order Blendabilities in six of the colors, as well as the Skin Tone pack, right now until the Bleandabilities are released to customers.

Don't Wait!  Get Them Now!  If you'd like to try them out ASAP, consider taking advantage of the the $50 Starter Kit offer going on right now.  You can order up to $55 in your choice of items for your Starter Kit order, then you can make a separate pre-order for the Blendabilities before they are released to customers.  (6/1/2014 updated to fix availability error)

Paper Share Update—I've had an overwhelming response to my new Too Cool 2014 Paper Share!  Thank you so much for your enthusastic interest!  I'll be ordering the first filled groups tomorrow as soon as the catalog goes LIVE, and I'll continue to reserve spots for new groups, so contact me if you want to participate! 

Anything goes graphicAnything Goes Open Stamp Night!

Stamping is more fun with friends!  Join me for an informal night of stamping & chatting in my Too Cool Stamping Studio on Thursday, June 5, from 5:30pm to 9pm! If you're in the Fort Wayne, IN, area, bring your creative projects and we'll stamp together!  You're welcome to use my stamps & tools, too! 

RSVP by Wednesday, June 4, is appreciated.


It's time for another Sunday Showcase featuring inspiration from my stamping friends!  I've got a handful of cards from my Too Cool Demo Team that feature a little bit of retired stuff and a little bit of new catalog stuff that I thought would be perfect for this transition time! 

I've highlighted the retiring items in RED. Many of the items are already sold out, and the rest are available while supplies last through June 4 (or June 1 if they are from the Spring Occasions Catalog).  You can see what items are still available on the Retired Stamps List - PDF and Retired Accessories List – PDF.

Peggy - flower shop framed tulips copy           

Created by Peggy Tassler.  Color combo: Crisp Cantaloupe, Smoky Slate & Whisper White.

Flower Shop (wood) is one of those sets that's a must-have!  Today is the last day that you can purchase this set along with it's coordinating Pansy Punch in the discounted and retiring Flower Shop Bundle (wood).  Don't miss out on the 15% savings!  Peggy did a fabulous job combining the blooms with the smaller flowers from the Boho Blossoms Punch. Love the soft color combo!

Also features: Bring On The Cake (wood), Framed Tulips Texture Impressions Folder, Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffle Stretch Trim, Pearl Jewels, Rhinestone Jewels.

Kathe - better place ribbon two cool copy        

Created by Kathe Madsen.  Color combo: Basic Gray, Real Red, Pacific Point, Night of Navy & Whisper White.

Kathe enjoyed creating two cool masculine cards using the Starburst Sayings (wood) stamp set and coordinating Starburst Framelits.  Bundle the two and save 15% with the non-retiring Starburst Sayings Bundle (wood).   I love the ribbon tails, embossed with the retiring Stripes Texture Folder

Also features: 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.

Peggy - eastern blendabilities copy      

Created by Peggy Tassler.  Color combo: Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana & Whisper White.

Peggy tried out her new Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Markers on the new Blended Bloom single wood stamp.  This flower was created especially for use with Blendabilities—love all of that shaded detail you can achieve with these versatile markers!   

 Also features: Teeny Tiny Wishes (wood), Eastern Elegance DSP, Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Word Window Punch

Rita - 4 panel lullaby copy
