In Colors Soon to Retire!

I wanted to share this card I made for a swap. The Designer Series Paper is adhered onto the card flat and all the other layers are adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals. Adhering with Dimensionals made a big difference to the appearance of the card. I'm going to be sad to see Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango retire!

Card ingredients are: Dreams du Jour Stamp Set; Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, and Soft Suede cardstock; Razzleberry Designer Paper; Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry Classic Ink; Scallop Border and Scallop Corner punches; 1 3/4" Circle Punch; Big Shot Machine and Pennant XL Die and Circles #2 Die; Vintage Brads; Dusty Durango Polka Dot Ribbon; Blender Pen; Paper Piercer; and Stampin' Dimensionals.

Please email me if you have any questions and thanks for looking!

Clear Mount Block Templates

I wanted to share these Clear Mount Block templates I got from a fellow demonstrator. If your printout measuresments don't match the actual ones listed on the page, let me know and I can email you the original file. Don't you just love those clear mount stamps!

It's almost over!

Hi everyone! Well my "tax season" is almost over - thank goodness! I haven't been able to post the way I'd like to because I've been busy working on a couple of year end financials and a couple of tax returns. Since my cornea transplants, I'm only able to prepare a couple versus the many, many I used to be able to prepare! So, now that I'm soon to finish, I'll be able to start stamping again and am I happy! So, be sure to check back after April 15th and I'll have more projects posted. Thanks for visiting!

WOW! What an exciting time for Stampin' Up!, its customers, and its demonstrators! Stampin' Up! just announced that it has decided to make a Color Renovation that results in 30 colors being retired, 5 new colors being added, and 10 "In Colors" returning permanently. For example, SU has brought back River Rock, Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, and more! Above is the New Color Collections chart showing the new color "families" with the new colors and returning "in colors". The Color Renovation/changes will begin with the new catalog release - July 1, 2010. Also above is a list of the colors that will be retiring, so make sure you stock up on your favorite colors before they're gone! These retiring colors will only be available until June 30, 2010. I'll be posting more information soon!
UPDATE: Don't forget that with the release of the new Idea Book and Catalog on July 1, 2010, there will be a new group of "In Colors". Stampin' Up will offer 5 new in colors that will be available for 2 years (rather than the 1 year now). Yippee! I can't wait to see these other new colors too!
