FRIDAY FAVOURITES – GOOD-BYE TO THE 2016-2018 INCOLORS!

Each year we say Good-Bye to the 5 Incolors that have been with us for the past 2 years.  Some of these colours become favourites.  It’s hard to let go of them.  This year we are saying Farewell to colours like Sweet Sugarplum and Dapper Denim!!  So for our final Friday Favourites for this current catalogue let’s look at these colours.

These little mini cards I made back in June 2016 to show the colours but I don’t know if I shared them on my blog as I can’t find the post now.  Here you are though.  They were using my favourite set at the time Swirly Birds.  (Note to self: I really must use that set again soon).

While these colours are nice I have really loved the Dapper Denim and Sweet Sugarplum colours.  I have used them a bit.

Dapper Denim is a great colour for “boys” cards.  I couldn’t find the original post for this z-fold card below but it worked well for a special 40th card.

Another “boys” card using the Happy Birthday Thinlits with the Color Theory paper stack.

I cut 2 of the Thinlits for this one in black and one in white and when adhering them together I offset them slightly.  The white makes the Black ‘POP’.

Dapper Denim even for a wedding card.  So elegant!  This one uses the Floral Themes set.

Sweet Sugarplum – what a lovely shade of colour.  Using a short lived bundle back a couple of years ago, Thoughtful Branches.  

One with the Sale-A-Bration 2017 set Avant Garden.

Sweet Sugarplum worked well with Peekaboo Peach. 

Another Swirly Bird card.  I heat embossed the swirls with White Embossing Powder before sponging over the colours.

We won’t miss Flirty Flamingo as that is now coming back as a core colour.  That’s pretty exciting!

Have you got these colours?  What is your favourite?  Now have you stocked up on your cardstock, ink refills, inks etc.  If you haven’t you better get on to it.  Some of these items have sold out already but you might be lucky.  Please don’t go looking for them after the 31st as you might not get them.

You can order them in my online store -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code: XQZEJREH  Thank you.  I do appreciate your order and be sure not to mark it anonymous or I can’t send you a little card and gift to say Thanks. 🙂

This is the last of Friday Favourites for this outgoing catalogue.  Don’t worry I think I will be back with Friday Favourites for the new 2018 Catalogue.  Not long now to wait!!!  I’m getting excited that you will be able to see it soon.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Jenny

FRIDAY FAVOURITES – FOR THE BOYS!

As we say Good-Bye to lots of favourites from this current catalogue we can’t forget the boys can we!  I think a lot of people have trouble creating cards for the men-folk.  Below are a few of my favourite sets that are great for them.

NB: The quality of these photos aren’t great.  I do apologise.  These were a few years ago and I hadn’t watermarked most of them either so do be kind.  But I hope it gives you some inspiration for your own projects.  And looking past the cards you might realise that you DO need these stamps in your collection. 🙂

GUY GREETINGS!

I can’t believe this one is going.  It has been around for a couple of years but it is a great manly set.  Here are some of the cards I have made with this set.  You can click on the link for more details.

This one was I made for swaps for a Stampin’ Up! event.  You can see the original post -> HERE.

Just after I made these cards I made a box which I realised matched perfectly.

You can see the details of the box -> HERE.  This would be a great set for the man in your life.

I loved how these cards turned out.  Simply adding the fun paper but you don’t need the fuss for boys.

You can see the post -> HERE.  This post has a few other cards for boys too.

Lots of fun images and sentiments in this set.  You can find this in my store HERE now. (Clear $61 AUS)

BADGES AND BANNERS

I think this set is overlooked.  It’s a great one for the boys.  It adds a fun sentiment to any cards and you can have the matching Badge punch to punch the shape out. (Edited: I see that the punch has already sold out!).

See the full post ->HERE.  I know the Nailed It set went last year and both these cards use this set but you could use any other set.

Details for this card below are -> HERE. 

See the Badges and Banner set in store HERE  (Clear $33).

Below are just a couple more stamp sets that would be great for the boys – big and small.

SEASIDE SHORE

What a cool set this one is.  (projects courtesy Stampin’ Up!)

See this in store HERE (Clear $37 AUS)

SUPER DUPER

Go retro for the boys (projects courtesy Stampin’ Up!)

See it in store HERE (Clear $33 AUS)

FRIDAY FAVOURITES – BUTTERFLY AND HEART DIES!

Each Friday for the last few weeks I have been sharing my favourite retiring products.  We have looked at my favourite stamps, flowers, butterflies and dragonflies.  Today for Friday Favourites is my favourite Big Shot Dies particularly the Butterfly Thinlits and the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits.

FIRSTLY THE BUTTERFLY THINLITS

I have used the Butterfly Thinlits and the Bold Butterfly Thinlits so much over the years.  Just some of the cards are below.

Create a funky watercoloured background and diecut the large Butterfly Thinlits.  See the details in this post -> HERE.

This one below was a special card I made for my daughter. You can see the full post -> HERE.

It was a simple card and I really loved  how it turned out. Sometimes you don’t need too much. 🙂

This card below was a CASE of a card in the catalogue.  I made it a couple of years ago now.  I can’t seem to find the original post. If I did post it at all??? 🙂

This card below I created for a Bloghop 3 years ago.  I coloured the Silver Foil with the Blendabilities at the time.  You could use the Stampin’ Blends now.  This card has been repinned from Pinterest and viewed so many times over the years since I shared it.  You can see the original post -> HERE.

BLOOMIN’ HEART THINLITS

The Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits are so detailed and delicate.  You don’t need to add too much to a card when you use this Thinlit.

I cut this heart from Designer Series Paper. You can diecut flowers with this Thinlits set too. The background is stamped with the Timeless Textures.  See the card -> HERE. 

Another one cutting the Thinlits again with Designer Series Paper. I used the Timeless Textures set.  See this card -> HERE. 

Do you have these Thinlits yet?  They are delicate and detailed.  They are lovely to add to a card making any card extra “gorgeous”.  Really! You will want them in your stash.

They won’t be available in a couple of weeks though.

The Butterfly Thinlits and the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits are available in my store -> HERE now.

             

Thanks for visiting me again.  Why not share what you have made with these Thinlits.  I would love to see them.

See you again soon,

Jenny
