Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Rainbow

Welcome to the APRIL 2021 Edition of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! You'll see projects in our hop from Stampin' Up! demonstrators around the world--I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Note: I can only sell to customers in the US, so prices are in USD)

We generally hop the first Friday of each month, and our theme for today is Rainbow. I am honoring our RETIRING 2019-2021 In Colors with my project. {you'll find all Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll near the bottom of the post}

I'm still having trouble finding consistency in my days with my fibromyalgia, so I'm going to try to keep my project simple again. Our Notecards & Envelopes make that super easy, as you get 20 precut and prescored foldover 3-1/2"x5" cards, with 20 envelopes to fit them!

I considered doing a card in watercolor, using ink refills, but as you may or may not know - the Purple Posy ink pad and ink refill did not meet Stampin' Up!'s color stability quality standards. So, we have cardstock, patterned paper, a Stampin' Write Marker (in the 2019-2021 In Color Marker Assortment), and even Stampin' Blends in Purple Posy...but there's no ink pad or ink refill available.

I'm also using the RETIRING Stitched Shapes Dies. Don't ask me why these are retiring, I have no idea! Maybe everyone bought them when they first came out so they aren't selling well anymore?? Whatever the case, these are some dies you'll want to get your hands on before they are gone. They are such a great set of versatile basic shapes.

Stampin' Supplies: Pretty Perennials Stamp Set, 2019-2021 In Color Cardstock Assortment, Basic White Notecards & Envelopes, StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad, Stitched Shapes Dies, Champagne Rhinestones, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Snips, Grid Paper, Paper Trimmer (if you need to cut down your cardstock sheets), Simply Shammy (to clean photopolymer stamps). (NOTE: you will want either the standard size Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, or the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine for the dies) {see Product Purchase Links near the bottom of the post}

  1. Fantastic card and what a way to honour our retiring products. I'm so sad to see these all leaving us (well, maybe not Terracotta Tile!). Clever take on a rainbow too. Thanks for sharing x

  2. Great idea to use the note cards with a pop of colour! I'll miss these In Colors

  3. Wonderful notecard design. Love the way you have combined these beautiful colors.

  4. Very clever card, Kimberley! Love the rainbow of retired colors. Thanks for sharing!
