Welcome to the Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop, where this month we pay tribute to the 2013-2015 Retiring In Colours. You may have joined me from the lovely Emily Thompson’s Blog, but if not you can click on the link below to go back and see what she has created.
Each year we welcome in five new In Colours that are current and on trend colours to freshen up the spectrum on offer.To make way for them, it sadly means that we have to bid farewell to five departing colours.
Just Sayin’ is a fun stamp set that will also sadly be retiring and with a sentiment of “miss you already… ” it seemed most fitting to be used for this project. I coupled it up with the ever so popular Painted Petals, which I absolutely adore. You can now purchase Just Sayin’ for £14.21 and the coordinating Word Bubbles Framelits for just £10.48, which is a bargain.
I’ve used my most favourite flower sprig from the Painted Petals set, that I’ve chosen to ink up in Coastal Cabana and Pistachio Pudding. I chose to stamp over the raised sentiment bubble to continue the image with dimension. The base and sentiment are in Baked Brown Sugar.
I’ve aged up each card base by doing a spot of sponging and used some speckles from the ever so popular Gorgeous Grunge. That’s a staple stamp set for your collection.
