The more I use these new In Colors, the more I just LOVE THEM!!
I was asked by my BFF Susie (my Honolulu buddy from single days…) to make a special card for her friend who was retiring from teaching. Special card makes me think: Card in a Box!
Aren’t those colors gorgeous?!! And I thought the chair & drink were the quintessential “retirement”! The beautiful Designer Series Paper is called Naturally Eclectic. I paired it with the In Color Designer Series Paper called Fresh Florals.
The sentiments from Wild About Flowers mainly focus on retirement. Notice how the word retirement is 2-toned. That was simple to do because the word retirement is a separate stamp. I stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist, then just dipped the bottom in Fresh Fig.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Hope you’re inspired to play around with some of the great new In Colors! Be sure & continue the HOP for more 2017-2019 In Color Ideas!
Next be sure & continue on the blog hop to see more In Color ideas!
Today’s theme for the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop is “It’s a Guy Thing”. Last week when I was sorting through my retired stamps, I was happy to see that Hardwood is still current! That set has just been sitting there for some reason & I’m determined to get a lot of use out of it!
I just love these 2 colors together: Soft Suede & Soft Sky! The large Happy Birthday needed something in the background. Gorgeous Grunge may be retired, but we still have Timeless Textures! There are some beautiful patterns in there!
Is the torn edge out of style? I don’t see it much, but I think it fits with this card.

Today I’ll be showing you a nice GET WELL GIFT! A tissue box cover with matching Get Well Card. I’ve made 2 different sets using the same Designer Series Paper, Falling In Love.
Isn’t that pretty? It just sets on top of a tissue box.
Recognize that glimmer paper from Sale-A-Bration? Love that!
Made a Get Well Card to match. Watch what happens when the card is opened…
Isn’t that cute?!! Simple, too!

It’s the last month of Sale-A-Bration, so there’s still time to place an order of $50 & receive a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog!
Today I’ll show you some Sale-A-Bration items that I’m playing around with for the first time, Hey, Chick and Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper. It’s true. Actually using the stamp set or paper makes me really fall in love with it- a lot more than just seeing it in a catalog.
Can you spot all the Sale-A-Bration items on this card?
3/8″ Metallic Ribbon
The splatters in the background are just done by flicking my Gold Wink of Stella Pen at the paper.
Card #2. A different look using Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper
I used Watercolor Pencils to color the flower. And there’s Delicate Details embossed in gold down the side! Love that!
Here’s a close up to show you the sparkle from the Gold Wink of Stella. Can you see it?
Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Next be sure to check out Megan’s blog where you’re sure to get lots of inspiration & ideas!
Today is the first Wednesday of the month, which means it’s time for the Inspire, Create Share Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be part of this talented team!
We wanted to share some love with you this month so our theme is Happy Valentine’s Day! We’ve just had our kitchen remodeled and I wanted to make a banner to hang up there…here it is:
Isn’t that fun?!! I used the Banner Thinlits and the Carried Away Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration (FREE with any $50 order!). If you look closely you’ll see some goodies from Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit (tassles, bow, ribbon).
My Big Shot finally kicked the bucket while I was making this project! It has served me well for many years & been used & abused! It has been groaning & making noises for a few weeks & actually spit some things across the room! May it Rest In Peace! I can’t get myself to throw it out yet. I have to admit though, Sale-A-Bration is the best time for this to happen! 2 more FREE SALE-A-BRATION items!
Thanks for joining us this month and feel free to leave us some love in the form of comments!
Now hop on over to Terry’s blogand see what she has to share this month.
