Sandi MacIver – Stampin With Sandi – Lovely Wishes CAS Card and Retiring In Colours.
Lovely Wishes is another stamp set from the Occasions Caddy that I have not played with and because it’s the beginning of the week, I thought a nice simple CAS (clean and simple) card was in order so here you go!
- I stamped the images in Archival Basic Black ink onto a 4 inch square of Whisper White. The set is a two-step stamping set so I used the filler stamps to colour in the leaves and flowers.
- The sentiment is heat embossed on gold to tie in with the mat in Gold Foil Sheet and is 4-1/8″ square
- I added a few Enamel Shapes for added embellishment.
- The card bases are 5 x 10, scored and folded at 5 in Dapper Denim, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo, 3 of the 5 in-colours that will be retiring soon.
Each New Catalogue year Stampin Up gives us 5 NEW – On Trend In Colours. They stay for 2 years and then retire. So each year one set of colours retires as in the 2016 – 2018 Collection for this year.
In a couple of weeks the retired list will be released and the retiring ink colour products – especially the ink pads, refills, markers and paper are always the first to sell out. In 10 years as a Demonstrator I have never seen them last until the final day.
So – Today’s cards are created in the retiring colours to remind you, if you Love Em – and you have not ordered extra supplies yet – might want to add it to your list.
That said – We do have a colour refresh occasionally and that would be the only time that one or more of these colours may be reintroduced, and we haven’t had one for a bit – just saying – And no, I don’t have any insider info, haha….I’m just putting it out there
I hope you enjoyed today’s project and thanks so much for stopping in to visit.
Wishing you Happy Stamping.
