April Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for April 2018. APRIL THEME: Bon Voyage Retiring In-Colors!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity.
These five colors are retiring as the 2016-2018 In Colors, but Flirty Flamingo is moving into the Brights Collection in June.  So it is Bon Voyage to Sweet Sugarplum, Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy and Peekabo Peach.
I made 10 note cards in two each of the colors using the Small Whisper White Memories & More Cards and Envelope Set that will be available in the upcoming annual catalog from Stampin' Up!  The small set come in 3 x 4 inches size and then the large set measures 4 x 6 inches.
I showcase these colors by using the word Friend from the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies, also a retiring item, cut out in Whisper White.  The sentiment is popped up using dimensionals and layered over the background ds paper.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog – Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.

Painted Glass for GDP134

Today I played along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP134.  This week it's time for a fabulous sketch challenge!  Here is the sketch so you can play along too:
I used the Painted Glass Stamp Set and coordinating Stained Glass Thinlits Dies that are brand new items available in the upcoming Stampin' Up! annual catalog in June.  The colors are Lovely Lipstick (New 18-20 In Color), Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White.  
I also used the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum and my Stampin' Blend markers for added color to give it the stained glass look.  The sentiment is stamped in Lovely Lipstick and punched out using the Pretty Label Punch.  Thanks for stopping by and letting me share the joy of stamping with you.

Make sure to shop the Stampin' Up! Clearance items, many of your favorites from last year's Holiday catalog are listed.
