Good morning everyone! Today is Friday which means it is time for another Stamp Off Challenge. If you remember last time our challenge was “Out With The Old…”. That is why this week’s challenge is called “In With The New”!
As much as I love some of the retiring products, I really love the new products that are in the Annual Catalog that started today! On a side note, I love Porsches! My Dad had a white 1963 SC with a red interior. It was an awesome car. He only let me drive it once and he spent the entire time yelling at me. Of course, looking back on it now, I am sure it was because he didn’t want me to drive it so he made it a miserable experience. It worked because I never wanted to drive it with him again and he would not let me drive it alone. Someday I am going to own a Porsche (maybe after I win the lottery!).
Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled program!
I decided to use the new stamp set called Lilypad Lake. This stamp set has matching Framelits called Lakeside and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. The dies are great because not only do they cut out the shapes of the stamps but they also have the wavy die that I used behind the Egret and two label dies. The sentiment is cut out using one of the label dies.
I also used brand new colors on this card. I think they may be my favorite colors but if you read this blog at all, you know I say that a lot! The colors I used are Coastal Cabana (my all time favorite returning InColor), Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green (both brand new colors). I colored the lilypads using the Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Markers. You can buy all the new color Markers in a pack!
