Stamp Off Retiring In Colors

Today our challenge is retiring In Colors (Lovely Lipstick,
Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call me Clover and
Blueberry Bushel).  I think that Susan, Buffy and I should
have taken a survey as to our feelings about these colors,
as SU tends to alternate Subtles and Brights for In Colors.
 It's ok with me if these colors retire.
I worked in the schools for over 30 years and they
remind me of school construction paper colors.

I decided to use the First Frost set, because it is also
retiring.   I combined Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove and
Old Olive.  I added a little Silver Foil sprig,
because the foils always lifts the other colors. 
I used the Big Shot to cut out the images with
the First Frost dies, layering them on to an Ornate Layers
frame.  This sentiment comes from Butterfly Gala and
I use it ALL the time!

I'm glad that you could stop by for a nod to Stampin'
Up!'s retiring In Colors.  Please enjoy Buffy and 
Susan's offerings.

I am not too sad about the retiring InColors because I know there are more coming! Your card is beautiful. I will miss that stamp set! said...

This is beautiful, Jackie! I love that Lovely Lipstick card base with the floral image. The silver foil adds just the right amount of "pop." And I agree with you - the retiring In Colors remind me of elementary school. I'll miss them (until the new ones get here...)

I like how this stamp set 'tones down' the strong colours - making them almost vintage! Another beautiful card, Jackie! :)
