Last week, Stampin' Up revealed that we will be going through a Color Renevation with the new catalog that comes out July 1st...so some of our favorites will be retiring. I was sad to see some go (Sage Shadow, ALL the purples, Brocade Blue), but I know that it's a good thing. Just wait until you see the new colors that will be available, and they're bringing back some of our favorite retired In-Colors!!!
So, I decided that I would try to deplete my stock pile of retiring colors by using them for these birthday cards. I found it was a great way to use the card stock that I have and will not be able to demonstrate come July (and make a few extra dollars doing it). Hope you enjoy and are having a great week!!!
For this card, I decided to use the color combination of Pretty In Pink and Sage Shadow. I stamped the image on Water Color Paper and used the AquaPainters to blend in Pretty In Pink, Lovely Lilac, and Sage Shadow. I then stamped the greeting in Pretty In Pink. Let me know what you think!

For this last card, I decided to get detailed. I used an old layout from my upline Stacey Schaffer and made it my own with this adorable new stamp set. I paired it with Very Vanilla, Old Olive, and Pink Pirouette (YES...it's one of the returning In-Colors!!!). I even brought out the retired Bella Rose DSP that I've been dying to use the rest of. I love how it turned out...so fun and adorable. Tell me what you think!!
