Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop! Stampin’ Up! announced it’s retired list yesterday – while we are sad to see some of our favorite products leave the catalog, we are certain that some amazing new products are on their way. As we introduce the 2016-2018 In Colors to you, we know we have to say goodbye to the 2014-2016 In Colors. Today’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that share some great ideas – featuring Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
My card for today uses some retiring Designer Series Paper, as well as the retiring In-Colors. The Farmer’s Market DSP contains three of the retiring colors: Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, and Hello Honey. I took the liberty of using Tangelo Twist on this card as well, even though the DSP contains Tangerine Tango. (I didn’t figure out a way to work in Lost Lagoon.) I used 5 different patterns from the DSP – actually six, if you count the background.
The layers, from bottom to top, are: Hello Honey card base, Mossy Meadow card stock, DSP, Tangelo Twist CS, DSP, Blackberry Bliss CS, and DSP. The vegetables are fussy cut from the DSP and attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment from the Wild About Flowers stamp set, is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink directly onto the DSP. I thought it was appropriate, since these In-Colors will definitely be missed.
However, I’m pleased to share with you the brand new 2016-2018 In-Colors, which will be available June 1 when the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog goes live! I’m very excited about the new colors. Aren’t you?
