Out with Old, In with New

The end of a Stampin’ Up! catalog is bittersweet as I hate seeing things I have loved retire, and I’m also excited about what’s coming! Today I used a retiring stamp set and a coming-soon ribbon to create a card of enCOURAGEment on my weekly FB Lunchtime Crafting LIVE broadcast (which happens every Monday at 12:30 Mountain Time, by the way).

It started with the Global Design Sketch #190

When a friend just needs a little encouragement, a card is a tangible piece of your support and this one almost made itself:

The colors are Petal Pink and Gray Granite and Whisper White and the stamp set is Ribbon of Courage (retiring June 3). The ribbon is NEW Petal Pink Organdy Stripe (coming in the new catalog on June 4th) with a few silver metallic pearls sprinkled on to give it some bling.

Mark your calendars for my New 2019-2020 Catalog Reception on June 8th in Utah County where you can snag both old AND new products with my once-yearly BOGO sale, and pick up a new catalog!

Support a Fighter

Don’t stop with PINK…you can make this card in any color you want to show your awareness, love and concern for those in any battle! This is one of my favorite charts showing ribbon colors for causes. I made these versions of the card with colors for Type 1 Diabetes (blue and gray with a drop of blood), Alzheimers (purple) and Heart Disease (red) :
