I'm making sweet treats! This one is made with Rich Razzleberry textured cardstock, Basic Black and Whisper White. The fun fill is actually granola with craisins. The punches for the greeting (stamped with Teeny Tiny Wishes) is the word window and the designer label punch. The ribbon is black gingham (RET) and the brad is Old Olive as is the feature art which is stamped with the Sweet Centers stamp set. What fun!
The next one uses Only Orange (Tangerine Tango would probably work), Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock. The fill is Halloween M&Ms. I matched the Lovely Lilac grosgrain ribbon to the candy color, IRL it matches perfectly. Kiwi Kiss would've matched the green candy better but I used Old Olive ink to stamp the main image. I was on a roll with it. All that was topped off with a little black organza (RET).
Once again, friends. You can substitute color, ribbon and cardstock. I'm just not wealthy enough to trash all my retired supplies and move on to all the new color. I did purchase all the new color but will keep using the old until all my cardstock and DSP is used up. I'm sure you understand.
I'm kind of torn between using it up and moving on ... and being save-y with it because I'll never see it again. I know some of you are matching your cardstock to other papers. You can certainly ring in on it here. I did write to Stampin' Up! and mentioned your wishes for a new family with the older colors. I also gave them your wish list for stamps. I bet I'm their favorite flavor right now. ;-) but I wanted them to know how their customers feel.
I will not be using retired colors and the like for classes and clubs. I want you to be able to duplicate projects but for my blog, my board and cards I send I will use up my old supplies. BAD demo, right? It is, what it is.
Have a great day!
Much love and joy,
