Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop with the Latte Girls. This week we are creating with the gorgeous new Magnolia Lane Suite.

Retiring In Colors

If you dont know what the ‘In Colors’ are they are a set of 5 Colours that Stampin’ Up! bring into our range for a period of 2 years with a new set of 5 each year. Considering our artists develop these colours up to 2 years in advance they are pretty on target with the yearly Pantone colours.

These are the colours we will be farewelling at the end of May …

I know a lot of people, me included, will be sorry to see Lemon Lime Twist retire.

If you have some or all of these Retiring In Colours I’d suggest you check your supply of cardstock, ribbons, ink refills and embellishments and stock up now before the retiring list is released in a couple of weeks. These items tend to sell out quickly and sometimes even before the Retiring List is released.

Here’s card I’ve created for you today …

Dear Doily retiring In Colors by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I needed something quick and easy for today’s card and this one fit the bill. I’ve been a bit time challenged up to leaving for the New Zealand trip and I’d realised late Saturday I still needed to make a card for today. So some simple stamping was called for.

Now I will tell you I had a little giggle when looking for a sentiment to add. See I was flicking through the Catalogue and came across the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set. I thought I could use ‘I miss You’ and then I spied ‘enjoy your retirement’! However, I opted for this sweet sentiment from the Well Said Stamp Set. I cut one of the doilies from the Framelits pack to pop behind my sentiment. A punched Vellum circle popped behind my Doily cut out was the perfect addition so that it didnt get lost in the pattern behind.

To create my Panels on the front of my card I cut four strips 102mm x 35mm. I then laid them together and stamped my doilies in the Retiring In Colors. They are adhered to a Whisper White Card Base with dimensionals. Super quick and Super easy to do!

Let’s go hopping …

Now it’s time to hop around and see what the other Latte Girls have made for you today …

I do hope you enjoyed the projects included in today’s Blog Hop. Leave a comment for the girls and let them know you stopped by.

Thanks for stopping by and see you latte ..

    Love your card Leonie. Breaking up the card front like you did makes a huge difference. Adds that extra wow factor.

      oh thanks Narelle … it does make it pop doesnt it … so much more than a one layer card and it’s still ‘simple stamping’ 😀
