Thank You So Very Much “In Colors”


The 2015-2017 In-Colors are set to retire on May 31, 2017.  We KNOW from past experience that they sell out quickly once the retiring list is posted in April.  Do yourself a favor and stock up on your favorite colors NOW, before there is a chance they are gone!!

2015-2017 In Colors

  • Do you have the stamp pads?  Make sure to purchase refills!!
  • Do you like the color? Make sure to stock up on cardstock and Designer Series Papers!
  • And, don’t forget the Marker Set if that’s something you like to have on hand.
  • Remember, there are also In-Color ribbon and embellishment choices that also sell out quickly.

The best part of stocking up NOW is that you earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration product with every $50 you spend. The sentiment I used on today’s cards is from the So Very Much stamp set which you can get for FREE during Sale-A-Bration through March 31st (or while supplies last). I needed some thank you cards to send to the families that sponsored my Family Bingo fundraiser at school. I love the big bold Thank You in this set!  I used the different retiring In Colors for these cards. Do you have a favorite color?


Watermelon Wonder


Mint Macaron


Tip Top Taupe


Cucumber Crush


Delightful Dijon

These clean and simple cards are quick to assemble! I love the ribbon in this collection and a simple knot is all it takes to add texture without a lot of bulk.  The Designer Series Paper is from the In Color Paper Stack…you get 40 12 x 12 sheets: 4 each of 2 double-sided designs in all 5 colors! I really like the versatility with the different patterns.

Happy Birthday Jamie!

Tonight is Girls Night Out to celebrate my friend Jamie’s birthday! WooHoo! November is just one big long birthday celebration ( 4 down, 3 to go)!  Here is the card I made for Jamie!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blossoms stamp set

I received the new Stitched Shapes Framelits last week and couldn’t wait to play with them! I used the largest stitched square shape to highlight the sentiment box. I love how this looks and I really love how easy it is to achieve perfect stitched detail!

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Squares Framelits

My card base is Mint Macaron with a 4 x 5 1/2″ layer of DSP from the 2015 – 2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Pack  I added a 2 1/2 x 5 1/2″ strip of Whisper White in the center.  I used the Big Shot to cut out the stitched square framelit and then stamped the flowers in Pink Pirouette and the leaves and sentiment in Mint Macaron. I like the tone on tone on the pansy and leaves.  I used the Pansy Punch to punch out the flower and fussy cut the leaves with my paper snips. I layered the flowers on top of each other with a Stampin’ Dimensional and added the leaves behind with a glue dot.  The silver ribbon in the corner adds some texture. I cut a metallic foil doily in half and adhered each piece behind the layered squares. I like that it’s a simple card with a little sparkle. I stamped the envelope and the inside of the card to match using the Birthday Blossoms stamp set.


Stampin’ Up! Stitiched Shapes Framelits and Birthday Blossoms stamp set

The New Stitched Shapes Framelits were released early (ahead of the annual catalog). They are only available the month of November for ordering…after that you will have to wait until the scheduled release date in June. Trust me, you don’t want to wait! If you missed my previous post with this product video you can watch it by clicking below and see all 12 stitched dies as well as some cool ideas!

Buy yourself an early Christmas gift or give your loved ones a not so subtle hint. I would be happy to help in the hint department…just email me your wish list (j.stark@myactv.net) along with contact information. I love being Santa’s Helper (and I gift wrap too)!
