As I sit here on my porch swing writing today's post, the sun is shining and the birds are singing their sweet songs and all is right in the world. Speaking of Birds, Stampin' Up! announced this week that my beloved chubby birds from the Color Me Happy Stamp set will be retired as of May 31, 2018 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. So here's my final salute to this adorable stamp set.
Note: The Color Me Happy stamp set never made it to a catalog. It was introduced with the launch of the wildly popular Stampin' Blends last fall.
You may have noticed that I have paired the Color Me Happy Last-Chance stamp set with the incoming Stitched Labels Framelits dies. And yes, I readily admit that I am currently enamored with these dies, but not to worry, true to my nature, I will soon move on to the next shiny thing. But, can you blame me for loving the Stitched Labels Dies? They are just so lovely and so versatile and they will be available with the launch of the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog starting June 1, 2018 at noon Mountain Time!
I inked my thank you stamp (Color Me Happy) with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder onto Vellum Card Stack. Then, I added a Adirondack Chair (Seasonal Layers Dies) and a piece of lovely Wood Textures Designer paper to complete my light and airy relaxing outdoor look. And for a final finishing touch, I watercolored my adorable birds with Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party Inks and brushed them with a light layer of Wink of Stella to look like the sun is shining on them.
When I saw this week's Color Throwdown Challenge, I knew that it was the perfect opportunity to say Good-Bye to my cute chubby birds from the Color Me Happy stamp set.
Have a fabulous day,
