This week team members are creating for Colour Creations Showcase with Purple Posy. Poor old Purple Posy had some issues with the ink colour not holding true, so that part of the range was deleted, but happily we have enjoyed card, Stampin' Write Markers, stampin' Blends and Designer Series paper featuring this sweet, soft shade of mauve for almost 2 years. It is an In Color, and will retire on May 3rd, so if you love it - it's time to check whether you have enough in your stash!
For another feminine touch, a few Pretty Perennials die cuts, along with the larger flower from Sweet Strawberry, dressed it up.
Now that I know you can punch it with the Small Bloom Punch, it makes it so much quicker to use! (It tells you in small print under the stamp information, what it co-ordinates with).
You Are Amazing is on page 7 of the January to June Mini Catalogue, which means you'll be able to purchase this up until June 30, if stocks last. It can be paired with a kit, which is a great way to venture into card-making if you aren't feeling confident about cutting correctly, or don't own a paper trimmer yet. You'll need to have your own acrylic blocks to mount the stamps on, and an ink pad. If you want to keep your purchases to a limit, I suggest a D Block, and a Pretty Peacock ink pad to complete the kit. Other colours Stampin' Up! sugest are Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, and Melon Mango.
