Colour Creations - Week #14 - Coastal Cabana

The participants in Colour Creations are all Stampin' Up! demonstrators and members of Art With Heart. We love to Blog Hop sharing all the Stampin' Up! Colours. This is week 14 of this round of Colour Creations Blog Hop, and we are sharing Coastal Cabana.

Coastal Cabana was an In Color early in my time with Stampin' Up! and I was very sad when it's two year run came to an end. What I didn't know was the colours would have a refresh at a later date, and Coastal Cabana would make a return. How good is that!!!

My husband is not at all keen on caravanning, but if he were, I would love to own a Coastal Cabana caravan. It's probably a bit too retro, I notice they seem to come in fairly bland colours these days (I do hope I'm not offending anyone by saying this). During SALE-A-Bration you can add a die set, Tree Lot Dies,  free with your $180 order and that includes the caravan, plus other dies. 

They pair up with Trees For Sale, and who knows if we will see them again after SAB ends, I just had to have them now.
It seemed a fun idea to combine the vellum map, big trees, a caravan and dog to wish someone happy travels. I borrowed the sentiment from Paradise Palms. I think it suits this card well.

  1. Rachel, I'd love a retro Coastal Cabana caravan too! Perhaps we should leave our husbands and do a "Thelma and Louise", ha ha?!!! I'd totally forgotten about this printed vellum but I just love it with the caravan – what an awesome card!

  2. Such a great card, Rachel. I love the stamps and vellum background that you teamed with the caravan. Fabulous result!

  3. I agree - we all need colourful retro caravans in our lives! Your card is fabulous, I love the map vellum behind the cute scene you've created.

    Great card Rachel, the map vellum in the background is perfect and Coastal Cabana is the perfect colour for a caravan.

  5. Great card, It makes me want to get away today in our van. But I have to wait another week. The Map vellum really sets it off beautifully.

  6. Sorry to say, we own one of those "bland" coloured caravans lol! I'm not offended haha. Rachel what a fabulous choice that vellum is to pair with the retro caravan.

  7. Oh I like your Coastal Cabana Caravan, I have seen one of these done up as a tiny house, maybe that would get your Hubby caravanning! Love the vellum and sentiment for your card it is a fantastic card!

  8. Such a great card Rachel. I love it. I love the CC colour for the van and the map vellum is perfect for the background, specially being stamped with trees. The sentiment is perfect. Beautiful xxx

  9. Rachel I too would love to own a brightly coloured retro caravan. There is one just round the corner from us and it is Merry Merlo in colour. The couple who own it sell coffee and cake from it. When I was a very small child some 60 years ago my parents owned a Petal Pink one. We took it on a road trip to the Blue Mountains and the VW wouldn't tow it up the hills. :) I love your card as it brings back some lovely memories.
