Betsy’s Blossom

Today is my In-Color Class – we are making 5 projects featuring the new Stampin’ Up! In-Colors – Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple.   The morning class was lots of fun and I’m looking forward to my second class later this evening.  I haven’t had a chance to photograph any of the projects yet.  But I am showing you another In-Color themed card that I made earlier this week for a different class.

This card uses the Raspberry Ripple card stock base and then a layer of Whisper White.  The main stamp set is Betsy’s Blossom and the words are from Petite Pairs.  I used Gumball Green for the branch; Midnight Muse for the bird – which is cut out and popped up on a dimensional; Raspberry Ripple for the words; and Primrose Petals for the little flowers.  I finished the card with a piece of the new stitched ribbon.  Over all it was a quick card.

I’ll share the actual projects from my class next week.  I’m having fun playing with the new In-Colors – and right now my favorite is still the Summer Starfruit and second the Midnight Muse.  What are you favorites?

I’ll probably offer the class as a To-Go class option – I’ll write up instructions and get the projects photographed.  I’ll decide before the weekend ends if it makes sense to do that.  And post the details if it does.

I also wanted to let you know that Stampin’ Up! has announced the Artisan Design Team finalists on their Facebook page.  And while I did submit and entry I was not selected as a finalist.  I do know some of the finalists or know their work and they are talented ladies so I’m sure the entries must have been amazing!!  I can’t wait to see them.  I’m hoping they show all the entries at convention but we’ll have to see if they do.  When I entered a couple of years ago they did have all but one of my projects on display – so I’ll be on the look out for them.

Thank you to Sue and Denean for their orders.  Every order helps me get closer no matter what size it is.  Thank you guys! Since the race for the Artisan Contest is over now I have to keep pushing to earn this incentive trip – I need about 20 more people to place $55 orders and I have about 8 days left – yikes!  Read more here.  Thank you to everyone that is helping – this will be an amazing accomplishment for me.  I love you guys!

Yeah the weekend is here!  And tomorrow we’ll be playing with MDS again for our MDS club – I can’t wait.
