One of the reasons I love my friends over at Stampin’ Addicts is how quickly everyone jumps in to put together something really cool. Case in point, this blog hop! Stampin’ Up announced the retiring colors on Thursday, I had an idea for the blog hop Thursday night, and here we are Sunday with some great projects to show you why you should stock up on these colors before they go. They are only available while supplies last! And don’t forget Stampin’ Up has free shipping through the end of the day on Monday April, 8th, so no time like the present! You may have just come from Tanya’s blog, where she featured Regal Rose, or you may be starting here. Either way, all of the blogs link in a circle, so you won’t miss a single color.
I am very excited to be representing Pretty in Pink in today’s blog hop. This has been my go to color for so many projects for Eve and other baby girls throughout the years. In addition to baby cards, I’ve used it for Valentines, Mother’s Day, birthday cards, and so much more. I have three cards to show you with it today. The first card is a birthday card from our dogs to Eve. (Yes, from the dogs, don’t your pets give cards?) It uses one of my favorite color combos — Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip. It’s just so classic! The punch art paw print is from Mary Fish.

Paper: Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, Subtles Patterns Designer Series Paper Pack

My second project is a Mother’s Day card. It uses a color combo recommend by the Color Coach. (Love that, have to make sure to get the new one when it is available!) Can you believe that all three of these colors are retiring? It is a little hard to see, but I used Pretty in Pink Ink on the Pretty in Pink card stock before I die cut them with the framelits. It adds a bit more dimension to the flowers.

My final card is an homage to Pretty In Pink. It is one of the very first ink pads that I bought and I will never forget it!
