Stampin' Up! Spotlight Technique ATC's

Each month I am joining fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators in our greater team and we are making ATC's based on a technique. The theme for February was spotlight technique. I had fun colouring in the "Just Add Color" speciality designer series paper with my stampin' blends.
Just a note, the Just Add Color DSP is on the last chance products list if you want to get your hands on some.

Usually, when I make ATC's they are all the same but because the DSP had different patterns on the sheet, I made the same "version" but slightly different.
Here they are all photographed together before I sent them off.

Stampin' Up! Male Card Class featuring True Gentleman Designer Series Paper

The true gentlemen suite certainly makes masculine cards pretty quick and simple. I love the mix of the blue (night of navy) and green (tranquil tide) together. It certainly throws the old saying of "blue and green should never been seen except with a colour in between" out the window!
I made these 2 cards quickly and so did my ladies who attended the class.

Card 1
Stampin' Up!, five for all, birthday card, male card, true gentlemen designer series paper, glasses, silhouette
Card 2

Stampin' Up! Last Chance Products List & Colour Revamp

Last-chance
It's that time of year again when the annual Stampin' Up! retirement list is released.

Retiring Products List – Occasions Catalogue
Retiring Products List – Annual Catalogue

These last chance products will only be available till May 31st 2018 or while supplies last so check out my online store now and see what you ‘must have’!

Colour-revamp
Stampin’ Up! makes a point of regularly reviewing their colour spectrum to ensure that they remain consistently on top of the trends. So, after 5 years of our current core colours, it is time for a Colour Revamp! In order to keep bringing us the most current and on trend colours, they decided it was time to give our colour collections a makeover.

How does it work?
There are still 4 colour collections, each with 10 colours. There is also a new colour group called Basics. In order to keep our colour collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White have been moved out of the Neutrals collection. A few other colours have been moved into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colourful! 

Some additional colours have changed collections as well. These changes were based on needing to maintain colour balance in our updated collections. For example, Poppy Parade is now the brightest red so it is part of the Brights collection, and Real Red has moved into the Regals collection.

In Colors 
There are no changes to the In Color programme. Every two years we will continue to introduce five new In Colors that will be available for the ensuing two years. We also have previous In Colors that are returning and joining our core colours. Welcome back: Mossy Meadow, Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana, Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss!

So, the all important question - which colours are leaving?

Retiring-colours
Note that Flirty Flamingo is leaving as an In Color, but returning as a core colour in the Brights Collection.

If any of these are your favourites, stock up on cardstock, accessories and ink refills now, before they are gone!

In addition, the inkpad case style has been updated with a fresh new look. It is now easier to open, more air-tight and stackable! All inkpads ordered after June 1 will be in the new style, and will increase in price by $1.50.

Click here to shop now and remember to use the hostess code if you order over $75 (for a thank you gift from me). April
