Today’s card is a cute card that emphasizes Stampin’ Up!s amazing Designer Series Paper. One of the great thing about the paper is that it all coordinates without you having to worry about it.  And here it is:

 

All Things Thanks, 143089

I made this card for a sweet friend, and fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Julie DiMatteo.  She has helped me with so many things!  Plus she has a great blog with many 3-D items.  Her blog is http://thepaperpixie.com/ .

This bright and cheerful Thank You is also a super simple card to make.  The Fruit Stand DSP has so many colors to pull from.  I chose the Watermelon Wonder for the base and then both sides of the same sheet of DSP.  I felt like it needed a border to break all the color though, so I added very thin layers of black to frame each of the DSP layers.

The 2015-2017 In Colors will be retiring with the new catalog.  Watermelon Wonder is one of those. So basically you have until the end of May to order the five colors.  I am so going to especially miss Mint Macaron!  If you have been a SU customer, you know that the retiring In Colors tend to sell out before the new catalog arrives.  So if you do have a favorite and need the re-inker or some extra card stock, you really should order now to insure that you are not left out.

Please do not forget that Sale-A-Bration will end in a couple of weeks (March 31) and you never want to pass up FREE stuff!  So if you order the retiring colors now it might help you reach the magic $50.00 for FREE SAB items.  A win/win……

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I very much appreciate your comments. And if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
