This week I am part of a Facebook Live Hop called Live & Inkin’. We are featuring retiring products…giving them some “last minute” love before they are gone for good.
My Live was yesterday. I showed how to make this fun masculine celebratory jean pockets card using the Pocket Full of Sunshine Stamp Set, Night of Navy Cardstock, Cajun Craze Cardstock and Ink, sandpaper, some Metallic Brads, and sponged on Whisper White Craft Ink.
Isn’t it fun!? I love how the pockets are on the INSIDE of the card so that both the left and the right “cheek” of the pants can be viewed at once. This would be an awesome card for a graduation or a birthday. Most of the cards I’ve seen made with this stamp set are either cutesy or feminine. So I wanted to share how versatile this set really is. PLUS if you get this retiring stamp AND the coordinating dies, there is a new “pocket” stamp set that will be available on June 4th in the new catalog that will also work with the dies. And then holy moly!…Just think of all the fun cards and projects you’ll be able to make.
I uploaded the recorded version of my Live & Inkin’ Facebook Live video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), check out the products list below, scroll through the close-up photos, and then let me know if you have any questions.
Products I used… See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.
- Night of Navy Cardstock
- 8” x 5-1/4” scored at 4” and folded in half

I hope you enjoyed what I had to share today! Remember this stamp set (and the Brushstroke Alphabet set) is guaranteed through May 24th and then only available through June 3, 2019 or while supplies last. The dies are carrying over to coordinate with a new pocket set. The stamp sets are different so you will want to have them both!

ANNUAL CATALOG NEWS
Due to recent supplier issues (and other factors), Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current die-cutting machine and trimmer: The Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer are retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the opportunity to research and explore replacement options. But there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available. You will not see these items in the upcoming 2019-20 Annual Catalog that debuts June 4, 2019. Click here for more information.
