Hooray for the Red, White and Blue!! Okay, in this case we have Red, Blue and Blue (with a little Naturals Ivory) but you get the point. The ColorLab Challenge is timely, as usual…ready for the Independence Day holiday here in the U.S. The stampers over at Stampin’ Royalty are celebrating their patriotism and this color selection fit right in for me.
You may have noticed that pinwheels are showing up everywhere so I decided to give it a try. I took some Not Quite Navy card stock and sponged on Night of Navy ink to make it pop. The DSP is from the retiring Jolly Holiday paper – one last showing! You’ll notice that I threaded a thin strip through the buttons too. Today is the LAST DAY to order any retiring items so don’t put it off any longer!! The layout comes from the Fall-to Layout Challenge.
I hope you are ready for the new catalog to launch…my order is standing by (and getting longer). With any luck, you’ll start seeing cards with some new products in week or so! Off for some summer fun with the kids today! Have a great rest of your week!
Stamp: Inviting; Paper: Jolly Holiday (retiring), Not Quite Navy, Naturals Ivory; Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy; Accessories: Neutrals Designer Buttons, Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Piercing Tool, Mat Pack
All products are Stampin’ Up!
