It's Time to Celebrate-Retiring In Colors

The time is arriving quickly when 5 In Colors are retiring and gone forever. I always find these transitions hard. Some years more than others. This year I'm really going to miss Blackberry Bliss. It is such a gorgeous deep purple. 

You might notice that the card front doesn't appear super crisp. That is because once I finished stamping, I did a vellum overlay to soften the appearance and give it a dreamy feel. I simply attached the vellum with glue dots. With or without the vellum, this card is quick, easy and has fun pops of color. Fun Fact: Changing the color could quickly take this card to feminine, super masculine or perfect for a child.

What I Love Card

Oh how I LOVE this FREE set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. It's so simple, yet provides stunning results. 

Do you ever feel like you just want to create, but don't want to do it from scratch? Me too-a lot. This is why I love CAS'ing cards. You don't ALWAYS have to be original. Sometimes re-creating a card gets your brain jump started. 

This pretty little card is on page 7 of the 2016 Sale-A-Bration catalog. 




Remember how I had to make adjustments on my Happy Day card? Well, I had to do the same thing here. Instead of using the Everyday Chic Designer Washi Tape featured on the original card, I cut a strip of patterned paper from the It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack. I really like how the yellow adds a pop of color. I also didn't have the Banner Punch to create the fishtail (don't worry, I bought it after making this card) and hand-cut it instead.

While the original card used two different inks for the flowers, I only used one and chose to stamp off to create depth. I also chose not to shade in the leaves so the flowers had a crisper feel.

You don't have to have it all to create something you love♥

Happy Day Card

Each quarter Stampin' Up Demonstrators receive a wonderful publication called Stampin' Success. When I saw one of the cards on page 6, I knew I had to recreate it! It's simple with pops of color and contrast-right up my alley.



There were a few things on the original card I had to modify being that I didn't have the exact supplies. For example: the original used the It's My Party Designer Washi Tape. I substituted a pattern from the It's My Party Designer Series Paper Pack. Instead of using the Enjoy the Little Things stamp set, I used the FREE Perfect Pairings set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Instead of using an Aqua Painter to make the splatters, I used my Stampin' Spritzer. 

It just goes to show you that with some creativity and a bit of thinking out of the box, you too can create something fabulous.
