Going to miss Green Galore...

I'm pretty excited about the Color Renovation at Stampin' Up and I can't wait to see the new colors. But one of the colors I'm really going to miss is Green Galore. It just goes with any bright color, but I especially like it with Real Red and Pink Passion (not at the same time though). And throw in just a touch of black and it really POPS!

So here is another "Bee" card using the Real Red/Green Galore Combo.

Thanks for looking,

Trying to get back on track...

I haven't posted any new cards lately because for one, I haven't been stamping lately and for two, I have been spending as much time outside as I can.

The weather here has been great. We have had some rain and a few cool days, but over all the last few weeks have been really nice. I have been working in my flower beds - weeding, mulching, pruning bushes, that kind of thing. I have also been trying to do a little spring cleaning around here. I have 3 rooms done so far.

So stamping hasn't been a big priority here lately. I know before long the hot summer days will set in and I will be ready to just stay inside in the A/C, so I want to take advantage of the nice weather while I can.

I have also started walking and we have had several events at church that I have helped with so that also has taken up some time. And we are coming to the close of our Seeker's Program so there is a lot of things to be done for the End-of-the-Year Cookout and Store that we have for the kids.

BUT, I did finally get around to taking some pictures of the cards we made at my last "playdate" with my friend Terri. This first one is a card that I created using the bee cased from Andrea Walford's blog. I did simplify my bee a bit. I didn't make a stinger for the bee or shape his head, I kept mine simple.

I hope you like it and check back this week for some more cards from the playdate.

Thanks for looking,

Sorry for the confusion

I had posted the new colors here last night, then was told we weren't allowed to do so by some other demos, but now we are told by Stampin' Up that we are allowed to post this. I guess it always pays to go straight to the source. So here goes again.

Presenting the New Color Collection - to download this document click HERE.
Enjoy the new colors and the return of some old favorites.

New Color Collections at Stampin' Up

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that Stampin' Up has just announced that they are revamping their color families. They are actually called the Color Collections now. There is the Brights Collections, Regals Collection, Subtle Collections and the Neutrals Collection.

There will now be 10 colors in each collection. These are made up of some of the old colors, some returning in colors, and some brand new colors. Some of the old colors have been moved to differenct color collections. This means Stampin' Up will now have 40 core colors. They will still have 5 new in colors that will debut with the new catalog. One of the exciting things about the in colors is that they will now be around for 2 years. Next year we will get another five colors, and the following year when we get our new colors, the ones from this year will retire.

Some of your favorite colors may be going so I wanted you to have plenty of time to stock up on these colors. This new Color Renovation will appear in the new catalog coming out in July. Another option to consider is purchasing the My Digital Studio software. It has all the current 48 colors and these will always be available.

I am sure some of you will be excited about these changes and others, well not so much. If there is anything I can do to make this transition easier, please let me know. Also, for those wondering about the markers, watercolor crayons and chalks, Stampin' Up will be offering the new colors in "kits". They will be available for purchase in July from the new catalog. So for instance, you won't have to buy a new set of chalks to get the new colors, you will just purchase the kit and replace the retiring colors.

I hope this all makes sense, but if you have any questions just let me know and I will try my best to answer them. While I am sad to see certain colors go, I am excited about the changes and hope you will be also.

Thanks for stopping by,
