Yes, FREE SHIPPING on any order this weekend- how great is that! April 6-8 no minimum order gets you free shipping. Have you been wanting that Epic This & That bundle, I know I have, and now, I get it shipped free! Hmmm, I guess sometimes waiting is a good thing! And having free shipping is a perfect time to get some of these retiring colours- yes, we are having a mini colour refresh.
I will say I am happy to see Pool Party & Island Indigo staying, and Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz & Blushing Bride returning and I am going to miss Pretty in Pink, Baja Breeze. And also announced yesterday, Watercolour Crayons and Watercolour Pencils are being discontinued, due to a supplier issue. They will only be available while quantities last, so get your order in quick.
And now, how about today's card? Lots of layers, lots of colour, and it all started with the Designer Paper. It is from Birds of a Feather ( I am really liking this pack) and it has Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit and the blue looks to me like Marina Mist but it is a light shade of Island Indigo. Well, with that many colours, one has lots of choices or just use alot of colours!
I have used Whisper White, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals and added Pink Pirouette for a bit of contrast.
I stamped the cupcake onto Whisper White using my freshly inked Stazon pad and started colouring only to finish the cupcake and realize that my baby finger and the cake stand have lovely black smudges on them. Note to self: A freshly inked ink pad means- lots of ink- longer to dry so I cut the cupcake out as I really liked the colouring job I did. Stamped it again on another piece of Whisper White and used my heat tool to "set" the ink, not taking chances this time! The cake stand was coloured in with our Silver Smooch which was on the clearance rack and then the cupcake glued on and I think it is better, no Smooch on the cupcake. Other than that, this card was super easy to make.
