Inking up the Retiring In Colors Blog Hop

Posted by on April 13, 2018

Welcome to the Inky Friends Inking up the Retiring In Colors Blog Hop! You may have just arrived from Betty’s Blog, or if you are going backwards from Rhonda’s Blog. No worries, even if you are starting here. All of the blogs link in a circle, so you won’t miss a single amazing project. If you get stuck, you can always click this link to take you to the master list.

I am a little bit sad to be showing you the lovely Peekaboo Peach that we are saying good-bye to. It is featured in the supper cute Tutti Frutti Designer Series Paper. This card also uses the soon to be retired Archival Basic Gray ink as well.

Ink: Basic Gray,Peekaboo Peach
Paper: Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White, Tutti Frutti Designer Series Paper

My next card is the birthday card I made for my daughter who just turned 15. It uses the retiring Number the Years stamps, which I highly recommend getting if you don’t have already! The glimmer paper came out really dark in the photo. It is much sparklier in real life.
