Yes! This weekend I had my New Catalog Open House and I served food based on Stampin’ Up!s brand new In-Colors. I thought it was a fun idea and I tried some new recipes too. I think the food was a hit and the new colors too!
Here are the five new In-Colors – these will be around for the next 2 years – Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana. Patty Bennett shared a flyer that she created in My Digital Studio and I printed it out – 4 per sheet – put it together with a piece of each color in a clear envelope to make a sample for everyone to take home.
Now I didn’t come up with a “food” for Coastal Cabana so I used it for the accents and if I had the time to go back to the store I would have looked for napkins and plates in that color – but time ran short. I did mix up some water with blueberry lemonade flavor – so it was slightly blue and some tropical flavored skittles. And here is the rest…
I never even knew there was such a thing but I found a PISTACHIO PUDDING Cake recipe. It was good. Looks like something fun to make on St. Patrick’s day too.
And yummy STRAWBERRY SLUSH cups – and this wasn’t from a recipe either – I ended up making something up since I couldn’t find anything. These were super easy to make and I thought they turned out great. And the potential to add a little something to them for an adults only beverage would work too :).
It was a fun afternoon at my open house. And for everyone that placed an order the names were put in a random drawing for free Stampin’ Up! products. Tyler picked the winner and drum roll please…….
The winner is……
Jeannette gets $50 in FREE Stampin’ Up! Products! Yippee!
Thanks for stopping by. Oh – I’ll post the recipes tomorrow.
