Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop - Bon Voyage Retiring In Colors


Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for April 2018. This month our theme is Bon Voyage Retiring In-Colors!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Christy Fulk @ Create With Christy, or you may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.


I chose to feature the retiring 2016-2018 In Color, Sweet Sugarplum. This color, and Dapper Denim, will be the In Colors that I miss the most. I paired it with a past In Color that is coming back...Mint Macaron! I'm so glad this color is coming back! I love it!

I decided to pair the retiring Sweet Sugarplum color with some BRAND NEW products. I used items from the Love What You Do Suite from the upcoming 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catlaog. I used the Love What You Do Stamp Set, Pearlized Doilies, Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Velvet Ribbon, Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit. I just got these items, and I can already tell that I'm going to love them all! I had so much fun making this card.

I have great news! You can get the gorgeous products in this suite early, too! Stampin' Up! will be offering three different bundles consisting of products in the suite May 1 - 31, 2018. Each bundle will include one to three FREE item, too! These bundles will not be offered in the annual catalog that starts on June 1, so if you want to get the best bang for your buck, you'll want to purchase one of these great bundles! I'll post more information on this special soon.

I also added another product that is retiring, the beautiful Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack. I think it looks great with the new products. This paper is still available to purchase, but you'll need to hurry. It's only available while supplies last, or May 31, 2018...whichever comes first.


Dimensions:
  • Sweet Sugarplum:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Mint Macaron:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer)
  • Whisper White:  2" x 3" (flowers)
  • Petal Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP):  4" x 1-1/2"
  • Pearlized Doilies:  1
  • Share What You Love Embellishment Kit:  1 narrow label and 1 flower
  • Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Velvet Ribbon:  6"

Instructions:
  1. Emboss the Mint Macaron piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Put SNAIL Adhesive along the top edge of the back of the DSP piece. Attach the bottom part of the doily to it (the edge of the DSP should be just below the open circle center of the doily). Then, attach the DSP across the bottom part of the Mint Macaraon piece (see picture). Wrap the ribbon across the center of the DSP, and attach the ends to the back of the Mint Macaron piece.
  2. Fold the Sweet Sugarplum piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Attach the embossed/DSP piece to the center of the card front.
  3. Stamp the "thank you" stamp from  the Love What You Do Stamp Set onto the center of a narrow label from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit using the Rich Razzleberry Classic Stampin' Pad. Attach the label to the right side of the card, over the ribbon, using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. Stamp the larger flowers stamp onto the Whisper White piece using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Stamp the medium-sized brushstroke stamp on top of each flower using the Sweet Sugarplum Classic Stampin' Pad. Fussy cut the flowers out.
  5. Attach the flowers to the left side of the label (see picture) using Stampin' Dimensionals. Attach a flower embellishment from the embellishment kit (it's self-adhesive) onto the flower/label (see picture).

When attaching, use SNAIL Adhesive, unless stated otherwise.

The supplies list does include the Love What You Love Suite products, but they won't be available until May 1-31, 2018 in bundles. You can buy them separately beginning June 1. The Mint Macaron Cardstock won't be available until June 1, and I couldn't add it to the list when it was written in April.
