Coast to Coast Creators Blog Hop - Retiring In-Colours!

You guessed it, team blog hop time again! New name, same hop.  And if you are also on Instragram, we are hopping there as well with some extra participants so be sure to check out both!

This month we are featuring the 5 AMAZING In-Colours from 2020-2022 which will be leaving us May 2nd.

Magenta Madness           Bumblebee             Just Jade            Misty Moonlight        Cinnamon Cider

If you follow my blog, you may notice this card is similar to another slimline design I shared earlier but I couldn't help myself! It's just such a great way to show of amazing DSP (muted with vellum if it's really bold) paired with a big statement die-cut.  Even better, not only could I showcase 2 of the 5 retiring in-colours, I could also showcase this fabulous DSP which we know will also be gone when the current annual catalogue is replaced with the new one.

I also made a smaller version of the same design as a make-n-take for one of my promotions recently.  I may like it even more than the slimline version!

I focused on the Expressions in Ink Suite of products. Just Jade is featured in the DSP patterns and although Magenta Madness is not (it's actually Polished Pink), due to the shading on the DSP, it still works beautifully.

I sure hope this bundle doesn't retire! I focused on this large & intricate die cut as the focus of my design.  It is best die-cut onto Stampin' Up!®'s amazing Adhesive Sheets for ease. I then paired it up with this beautiful thanks die cut from the January-June mini. I featured Pale Papaya here (current in-colour and also in the DSP) and die-cut using our Foam Adhesive Sheets (another must have).

Although I didn't use the stamp set on the outside of the card, I did manage to add a few stamped images to the inside. Also another chance to showoff the in-colours! Never forget that both the inside of the card and/or the envelope are a great opportunity to add more stamping or layers of DSP.

Do not hesitate if you want to ensure you have these in-colour papers & inks in your collection before they are gone forever. Once Stampin' Up!® releases the retirement list in April, they will be sold out in record time. And if you already own the ink pads, don't forget to grab yourself the reinker!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Be sure to 'hop' to as many of the others as you can! 
You will be so inspired by all the amazing designs!
