CQC #44 - Vintage Wallpaper Thinking of You

Happy Tuesday! We have another gorgeous color challenge for you at the Colour Q! This week we're challenging you to bust out that new Poppy Parade In Color, as well as, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Basic Black, and Whisper White! Side note - I'm actually really in love with the dress in the inspiration photo! So cute and perfect for summer!
Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • I chose to really show off the NEW Poppy Parade color and used it as my back drop for my card! Poppy Parade is featured on page 165 of the NEW IBC and is a 2010 In Color. With the huge color renovation Stampin' Up! did this year the In Colors will now be around for TWO years! This means that the 2010 set of {5} In Colors won't retire until 2012!
  • The Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder (item # 120175) adds a beautiful texture to my card! This one is probably my favorite of the {8} Folders Stampin' Up! offers on page 214 of the IBC. Each folder measures 4-1/2" x 5-3/4" and is perfectly sized for a standard card front. They sell for $7.95 and are worth the investment!!
  • Love buttons? Stampin' Up! has renovated their collection of Designer Buttons and they are better than ever! Check them out on page 186 of the IBC. Each Color Collection contains 72 buttons; 4 each of 3 designs in 6 colors! I prefer the 'shiny' look of buttons and now each design is shiny and the extra colors are incredible! Each package sells for $8.95 and yes, I bought all {4} containers available! LOL!!!
