Color Renovation #2

Today's card are using the five new core colors in the new Idea Book & Catalog available in July. The colors are: Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, and Early Espresso. I love them and can't wait to get my hands on the ink, markers and accessories! Enjoy!

As a bonus I've added different color combinations of the birthday card. This card is really simple, but showcases a lot of Stampin' Ups! beautiful colors and demonstrates how well they coordinate with each other.

Color Renovation

Stampin' Up! announced to demonstrators yesterday that they are making a renovation to their color families. I am so excited for this change - not only is Stampin' Up! updating their color palate, but they are also bringing back some of my favorite retired In Colors (Riding Hood Red, Wild Wasabi and Pink Pirouette to name a few). I can't wait to start using the new color combinations that we will have access to in July with the coming of the new Idea Book & Catalog.

I decided tonight to make a card using some colors that will be leaving at the end of June and a stamp set that will be in the new catalog.

During the month of April, Stampin' Up! is running a Two-Step Into Spring Promotion. You can purchase this beautiful two-step stamping set - Awash With Flowers - for $39.95 (wood mount) or $27.95 (clear mount). It will be a nice stamp set to use throughout spring and summer. You can go to my website ( for more details. Just click on the promotions tab.

Another offer that Stampin' Up has is from April 1-May 31, join Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator and receive two FREE technique DVDs. You may also find details on this offer on my website under Promotions. Please let me know if you have any questions about being a demonstrator or if you would like to join.

Thanks for stopping by!
