Welcome to this months Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #7.
This month our challenge was to use 3 of the new In Colors that have only just been released. These are gorgeous colours to play with especially the deep rich Pretty Peacock. I also decided to showcase one of our new Stamp sets with matching punch in the Above the Clouds Bundle.
It was hard at first knowing how I was going to use these colours but then I picked up the Above the Clouds stamp set and the card came together. I used a layer of Seaside spray to break up the vanilla and added some black birds in the sky and the sentiment.
This is a two step stamp set so I used the outline of the balloons in full strength and then stamped off for the Hot air balloon.

This month we wanted to share the retiring products from the current Annual Catalogue. I chose to use the retiring In Colors of Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink & Berry Burst. I have really loved using these colours over the last two years and will miss them when they’re gone but I’m equally excited for the In colors that are coming next month to replace them.
The stamp set I’ve chosen is Florentine Filigree which is such an elegant stamp set and is so simple to use. I have simply stamped the images and let them stand on their own. I stamped the sentiment “Thank You” on both cards and just used my papersnips to create two different types of banners but you can also use the triple banner punch to create one of the banners.

This month’s Blog Hop is a layout challenge. I chose to use some products that I am fairly confident that will be retiring in May. I have used the Share What you Love Designer Series Paper which is absolutely a gorgeous pack of card stock. Normally our DSP is paper weight, however this pack is a thicker weight than our normal DSP. In this pack you get 4 sheets of each patterned paper so you get a lot of card in this pack which is great as you want to just keep using it. Some sheets have some shimmer on them as well.
I have paired the dsp with the coordinating stamp set “Love what you do” in Berry Burst Ink. The card came together quite easily as I already had the layout provided so just needed to add the elements to it. Sometimes the layout can be the hardest part to card making. The colours can be the easy part especially with Stampin’ Up! as all their colours coordinate so well together.

I decided to add an envelope to my project and so I covered the back flap with some of the DSP. I really like how my whole project turned out. I added a whisper white insert into the card as the Berry Burst is just a bit dark to write on. I stamped the same flower that’s on the front to the insert as well. You can see that on the photo above.
Welcome to our February Team Blog Hop. This month we were challenged to use the colours from the Sale-a-bration Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack, Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather & Lemon Lime Twist. This ribbon is found on page 7 of the Sale-a-bration catalogue. Unfortunately, this ribbon is now unavailable due to the high demand. If you don’t want to miss out on any of the other products in the Sale-a-bration offerings, then don’t delay and put in your order today!
I chose to use the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper Stack. I found inspiration from Create with Lynn. I changed up the butterflies as I just used the Botanical Butterfly DSP for the butterflies and punched them with the duo butterfly punch. I used Highland Heather ink for the sentiment from the Birthday Cheer Stamp Set.
From tomorrow there will be a few additional items that can be earned during Sale-a-bration.

The challenge has been set by Nikki Stalker and here is the sketch we are to work with. The inspiration for this sketch is from page 97 of the Annual Catalogue.
Here is the card that I made for the blog hop. I used the Snow is Glistening Stamp Set which is only available till the end of November or while supplies last. I used the colours in the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper as my inspiration. If you love this paper I would suggest you purchase it as soon as possible as its been very popular and has sold out overseas and will sell out here too and once its sold out its gone.
