Saying bye to our 2013-15 in colours

The Stampin Up! Retirement List is due to be released on April 21...that's this Tuesday tomorrow
It is a complete surprise what stamps, tools and accessories Stampin' Up! will be retiring each year, what we do know is that one set of the gorgeous In Colours will be going. This year, we say goodbye to Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush. 
Which one will you miss most? For me, it's Coastal Cabana, for sure !
I've been using quite a bit of it lately...
With Bermuda Bay and patterned paper packs in spots and stripes.
Just loving the happy Framelit that shows the cardstock underneath.
I'd recommend stocking up on your favourites nowbefore the list is released. These always sell out quickly, especially the ink refills and cardstock.  You can email me your order to or order through the online shop if you wish.

Bloom with Hope and a work of art.

Bloom with hope is a hostess stampset. I love it stamped in black on crumb cake cardstock.
The background is the brushstroke from a Work of Art stampset.
I have stamped the incolours Coastal cabana, Pistacio Pudding, crisp Canteloupe and strawberry slush behind and touched up the front flower with whisper white ink on an aquapainter. I think this makes the flower pop.
