Retire In Color – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop!  Today’s hop is filled with projects inspired by the Stampin’ Up!’s retiring 2015-2017 In Color Collection – our tributes to Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder.  What fun!  We’ve really enjoyed playing with these amazing colors over the past two years – and we are excited to share our creations with you today.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Today’s project is a set of mini thank you cards featuring all of the 2015-2017 In Colors! I couldn’t just pick one and I’m grateful for all of them, so why not make a whole set? Each mini card measures 3″ x 3″. Just take a 6″ x 3″ piece of card stock and fold it in half along the 6″ side (or score and fold it at the 3″ mark). The Whisper White piece measures 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ and the tiny cardstock strip measures 1/4″ x 2-3/4″. I had some fun with the Suite Sentiments stamp set and my Stamp-a-ma-Jig – LOL! Here’s a closer look at each of the mini thank you cards:

I’m going to miss Mint Macaron the most (sad face). Which color will you miss the most?
