Good News, Bad News ...
Bad news ... Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper (173) will no longer be available after June 30th, 2011. I will miss this paper as it coordinates so well with the Friends Never Fade Stamp Set and the Ornate Blossom Stamp (pg. 99). If you have these stamp(s), you may want to consider stocking up on this paper!
Good (GREAT) news is that Friends Never Fade and Ornate Blossom Stamps WILL BE BACK! In addition, so will all the In-Color 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbons on page 190 of current catalog.
Wait until you see the new ribbon collection for the new in-colors -- 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon (pg. 194 in new catalog). I got a sneak preview and they are beautiful. I will be buying a supply of these new ribbons on July 1st to do a ribbon share for July Divas. If you know you want to be included, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will get 2 yards of each color for $10.
Remember, the current In-Colors (Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Concord Crush and Pear Pizzaz will be good until June 30, 2012 -- one more year! The new in-colors will be good for two years (through 2013). I'm really happy Stampin' Up! has changed this .. great change! In-colors used to be good for only one year.
The flower on this card was colored in with markers. The colors used here were Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzaz, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White. The framed Tulips Embossing Folder (121809 - $7.95) was also used and WILL BE BACK ... YEAH!
Had a super (and long) day yesterday on our Shop Hop. Lots of ideas and fun had by all. I spent most of the today playing with my new toys! Thanks to all of you who participated!!!
