Catching up is hard to do! Here are the projects we did for club in April:
I wanted to focus on using some of the colors that are retiring and also a few new (to me) things.
This card uses Baha Breeze(retiring color) and the Oh, Hello stamp set, ovals framelits, 1 1/4 scalloped circle punch, vintage faceted buttons, and paper doilies.
A close up of the button - LOVE THESE!!!
This card featured a new technique - faux patina. Colors used - Certainly Celery, Bravo Burgandy, Pretty in Pink, River Rock. The stamp sets are Artistic Etchings (retiring) and Itty Bitty Banners (with coordinating framelits). I thought the pearls added a nice touch. The celery ribbon has been retired since last year but figured we could still use it up! A little gold embossing powder gives it the aged look.
Hope you've enjoyed these samples. More to come soon!
Stampin' Up is doing a color renovation and I have to say that I'm liking the changes. Of course, I just bought several paper packs of colors that are now retiring so guess what colors I'm going to be using a lot of in my classes :) Here's a chart to let you know what is staying and what is going. There are many former In Colors returning to be part of the "main family".
Let me know your thoughts on this! I'll be posting some new card samples soon!

I've had a difficult time getting back in the groove lately so I decided to look for some inspiration with some new blog challenges dealing with color and layout. Here are some of my creations this weekend.
