           It's Wacky Wednesday or so some say, lol! Around my house everyday is wacky ;) Today I wanted to share another super easy and quick card but before I do that I wanted to let all those who have Stampin' Up ink pads know that some more colors are being retired. The colors that I was told are retiring are the 2013/2015 In Colors: Coastal Cabana, Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, and Strawberry Slush. Also something I didn't know was that the In Colors only stay around for 2 years. I guess I should have realized that's what the 2013/2015 meant, lol. So for anyone who is considering buying new inks, you might want to keep that in mind when deciding what brand and colors you purchase, especially if there are certain colors you love. If you purchase inks be sure to keep tabs on the colors, that way if there are colors that you want to keep around for a bit longer even after they have retired, then you can make sure to get the re-inkers before they are all gone. If you have any Stampin' Up questions, and don't currently have a representative, just let me know, as I have an amazing representative that I would be glad to have get in touch with you. Now onto my card :)

Front: The base of the card was made using plain white card stock. For the front of the card I used the bubblegum4me and moregum4me stamp sets from The Stamps of Life. I also used the largest die from the My Favorite Things Die-namics Horizontal Stitched Strips die set. Using the largest die I cut 3 different patterned papers. These dies are perfect to help use up some scrap pieces of paper or card stock that you have lying around. To achieve the banner I used the edge of a bowl to make the curves and then just cut the points on the end with a paid of scissors. The ink I used was the Tsukineko Brilliance Pearlescence Orchid.

Inside: I used the My Creative Time Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More set to cut my 2 rectangle pieces. I then stamped the My Creative Time Grainy Wood Background Stamp with the Tsukineko Brilliance Pearlescence Orchid ink to make my main background image. I took the same orchid ink I used on the front of the card and tipped the edges of the smaller rectangle. Using the orchid ink again I stamped the sentiment and image from the The Stamps of Life bubblegum4me and moregum4me stamp sets. Don't forget if you like the watermarked image you can get that from Michele R Designs. She also has some beautiful digi papers you can purchase too!
