A Tribute to the Retiring 2014-2016 In Colors

Hi Stampers!

Today's blog post is a tribute to Stampin' Up!'s 2014-2016 In Colors that soon will be retiring. It will soon be time to say goodbye (sniff...sniff) to Lost Lagoon (my favorite), Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Hello Honey. 

These were a set of cards made at our recent monthly card class. There was no way that we were going to say goodbye to these colors without a "last  horrah". 

The Rose Wonder Bundle made it a perfect match to showcase the In-Color and accenting it with the beautiful Rose die cut. To add a little touch, the In-Color card stock was run through the Big Shot using the Decorative Dots embossing folder. 

Now's the best time to stock up on your favorite retiring products before they are all gone. You can check out the retiring list by clicking HERE.

Here is the complete list of supplies needed to make these set of cards.

In the month of January, one of the things that I love to give my customers are calendars. Here are 5 little Post It Note/Claendars that I have created using the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper.  The flower accent is called Blossom Bunch Punch and it is in the New Occasion Catalog.

Now, be sure to read through to the bottom of this post because there is a "GIVEAWAY" that you don't wan't to miss out on!

This month we have three very special guest bloggers:

Be sure to visit their blogs and check out their awesome creations!!!

I love's my favorite holiday and being able to give gifts and hopefully see the smiles on peoples faces. Today is my boy's last day of school before winter break. Today's share is a project I worked on as a gift that my boys could take to school and give their teacher for Christmas. A Santa Candy Sleigh and a coordination Christmas Card.

For Santa's Sleigh, I took a Kit Kat Bar and wrapped Gold Trim around the bar. Glued the Kit Kat bar to the candy canes using Tear and Stick Adhesive Tape. I adhered the Hershey Nuggets onto the Kit Kat Bar and stacked them on each other using Glue Dots (I was tempted to use a Hot Glue Gun, but I decided not to in fear that the heat would melt the chocolate). For the ribbon, I grabbed the only red ribbon that I had --- Red Cotton Ribbon and I made the bow using Stampin' Up!'s Bow Builder Punch.

For the card, I used a very simple layout featuring the red stripped Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!'s Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper. I decided to jazz up the background and simply embossed it with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder. The presents are from the Your Presents Stamp Set. I will have the complete list of supplies on the bottom of my post.

Now.......It's Give Away Time!!! How would you like to win something fresh off the press from Stampin' Up!s newly released Occassions Catalog???......Play along and follow the instructions below. I love giving things away and you could be a winner!!!
