We Create Blog Hop--In Color Farewell

It's hard to believe that a new Stampin' Up! Catalog is just a couple months away...which means new In Colors coming! YAY! It also means old In Colors are leaving us--BOO!  I decided to use our soon-to-be-retiring 2015-2017 In Colors on my card today. I think my favorite is Mint Macaron followed by Delightful Dijon. Which ones were your favorites?

I got my card idea from a very talented demonstrator, Jackie Bolhuis. I loved how she used the bar stamp from Thoughtful Banners to make a simple pattern and then added the words in Basic Black for contrast.  My basic card uses just the '15-'17 In Colors (I decorated the envelope as well) and one of the many versitile phrases in this stamp set.  The stepped-up version added Basic Black metallic thread and black sequin hearts from the Metallics sequin assortment.

My stamping has been very, very limited of late. There are 5 weeks until my youngest child gets married! Life seems to be on fast forward, so please forgive me if I am MIA for the next few months--lots to do! I promise I will post pictures of the wedding!!
Enjoy the rest of the blog hop!!
