Just Add Color

It's not too late to order some Just Add Color Designer Series Paper before it retires at the end of the month.  As an added bonus it is on sale!  You can see this paper and all of the last chance products by going to my Online Store here.

I colored my tea pot and cup using coordinating markers and layered the paper onto a piece of Pool Party Card Stock and Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  For my May class I was able to cut the paper into several different images, each piece having at least one pot and cup. making it possible to make many cards using just that one sheet of paper.  This paper is really fun to use, and I think I will be stocking up on more before it is gone.  I plan on cutting each piece into a 6 x 6 section and making adult coloring books for family and friends.

Cool Treats

It's not too late to still get the Cool Treats Stamp Set and coordinating Frozen Treat Framelit Dies, but they will be retiring in two weeks.

They are really perfect for those summer birthdays!


My card base is Bermuda Bay Card Stock that I layered with a piece of Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock, as well as a piece of Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper.  My popsicles were stamped with Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay Ink and placed onto my card using dimensionals.  I also added some mini pearls to my popsicles, and a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Finely Woven Ribbon for a bit more embellishment.

I finished the card by stamping my sentiment, cutting it out with an Layering Oval Framelit and adding some Tutti-futti Adhesive Baked Sequins.

New Colors Coming Soon!

Some more information on the upcoming color revamp:



When the new Annual Catalog goes live on June 1st you will see not only new products but so many new colors.   With the addition of these new colors they had to retire some that have been around for awhile.  The retiring colors are listed below:


Retiring Colors

On May 31, 2018, thirteen colors are retiring.
  • Always Artichoke
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Elegant Eggplant
  • Island Indigo
  • Marina Mist
  • Perfect Plum
  • Pink Pirouette
  • Rose Red
  • Soft Sky
  • Tangerine Tango
  • Tempting Turquoise
  • Wild Wasabi
  • Wisteria Wonder
  

A few more details about the colors:


There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.

In order to keep the color collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, they moved Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White out of the Neutrals collection. They also moved a few colors into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful!

Some additional colors have changed collections as well—you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections below.



There are no changes to the In Color program. Every two years Stampin' Up! will continue to introduce five new In Colors that will be available for the ensuing two years.

They also have previous In Colors that are returning and joining their core colors:
  • Mossy Meadow
  • Poppy Parade
  • Flirty Flamingo
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Mint Macaron
  • Blackberry Bliss

Stampin' Up! demonstrator Mary Fish made these great color comparison charts you see below and I wanted to share them with you so you could see the difference in colors.  Sometimes when we look at just the new color we think it looks like another color we already have.  These comparison charts really help see how they are similar, and also how they are different.  Thank you Mary!




In addition to new colors, Stampin' Up! also redesigned their ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and they improved the formula of the ink, as well! You will still be able to use your current ink pads and if you do order any new ones you will get the new design.  Any ink refills you have can be used on either style of pad.

With all of this new information, and with the arrival of my preorder of new products I haven't been on my blog posting as much as I would like.  I am busy finishing up preparations for my last stamp class using the retiring products, and busy preparing for my June Open House.  I hope in the meantime this information is useful to you and if you have any questions about any of these exciting changes comment below or send me an e-mail.

Birthday Blossoms

Another card I made for my May Stamp Class uses the retiring Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set and retiring Pansy Punch.  The retiring products will only be available while supplies last, and unfortunately the Pansy Punch and Delightful Daisy DSP I used in this card are already sold out. So, don't wait too long if there are any other retiring products you still want.  Many great products still available and you can see them all at my Online Store. 


I used Tranquil Tide Card card stock for my card base and layered it with a piece of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and Whisper White Card Stock.  My flowers, stamped in Tranquil Tide ink were then punched out with the Pansy Punch and embellished with White Perfect Accents, also retiring.  My leaves and sentiment were stamped with Emerald Envy ink to finish the card.

Blooms & Wishes



Another pretty stamp set that will be retiring is the blooms & Wishes
 set.  It can be use to create beautiful backgrounds on your cards or projects.  I paired this up with the also retiring Just Add Text stamp set to make this card for my May stamp class.

I used coordinating colors of Peekaboo Peach, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi (all 3 are retiring colors) and Crushed Curry.  The sentiment was cut out using my Big Shot and a Lots of Labels Framelits die which will also be retiring.  

For a bit more dimension and color I used a Sponge Dauber and added some Peekaboo Peach ink to my cut label, tied on a piece of retired Wild Wasabi ribbon and placed my sentiment on with Dimensionals. 

If you want to order any of these retiring products don't wait too long because some products are already sold out.  You can go to my Online Store by clicking the shopping cart in the left hand column of my blog or e-mail me or leave a comment below and I will be happy to help.
