Hello everyone! Today’s Stamp Off Challenge is to use some or all of the retiring InColors. These include Fresh Fig, Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist. If you know me at all, you know I love Lemon Lime Twist. Of everything that retired, this color retiring makes me the saddest. I am hoping if and when Stampin’ Up!® does a color refresh, they bring it back because it is one of my all time favorite colors!
Another favorite product that will be retiring on June 3rd is the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper that is in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. I love this DSP. Plaids are back in style (at least with paper and stamps they are) and this DSP was really popular.
To make this card, I first adhered a piece of the Gingham Gala DSP onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. I cut out a Coastal Cabana hexagon and a smaller one out of Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the sentiments from the stamp set called Sorry For Everything using Memento Black Ink. This is a great stamp set for sympathy cards for people or pets as well as get well cards, belated birthday cards and farewell cards. The smaller sentiments cover all those occasions. Lastly, I stamped the butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Stazon Ink and colored with my Lemon Lime Twist and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Markers. When using markers you need to use Stazon Ink so it doesn’t smear. When using Blends, you would use Tuxedo Black ink for the same reason.
If you like Lemon Lime Twist cardstock or ink you will need to order before June 4th because if it has not sold out yet, it will be gone forever.
