Weekly Deals: July 28 - August 3

Hello!  I am so sorry I have been MIA lately, but I have been busy helping my mom.  She was recently diagnosed with lung cancer, so we are getting lots of tests done to see what the best treatment plan will be.  In fact, I am writing this post courtesy of the hospital wifi! LOL

I did have 2 sessions of my Christmas In July class this past weekend, so I will be sharing the photos of these cards with you throughout this week.  But, first I want to let you know about this week's Weekly Deals from Stampin' Up!  I am placing an order later this week, so let me know if you would like to add anything to it. You can shop online here or send me an email with your order (stampinnancy@gmail.com). Be sure to enter Hostess Code RWMQAYN9 and receive a special thank you from me. Also, be sure to allow me to contact you. I need to be able to access your address to send you something.  :-)

So, without further ado.....here are the Weekly Deals for July 28 - August 3!

RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour: In-Color Bundle!

Hello, and welcome to another RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour! It is hard to believe another month has gone by -- the summer always seems to fly, doesn't it?  Our theme this month is the new In Color Bundle, so I have created projects with some of the 2015-2017 In Colors for you.  I love how the new In Colors coordinate with other colors in the Stampin' Up! color palette.  Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron, and Delightful Dijon are simply beautiful!

This card showcases Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe, and Whisper White.

Lining the envelope in a coordinating color is easy with our envelope liner framelits.

Here is a close-up of the detail of the butterfly and greeting.

I love the saying that is included with the Watercolor Wings stamp set.

My Stamp Club ladies made a fun little wiper card, and I pulled the colors for the rainbow from the Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack.  This card showcases Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush paired with Crushed Curry, Tangelo Twist, and Pool Party.

I was inspired by the project found on page 21 of the catalog.
The little "wiper" with the sunshine tucks into the card when it is closed, and pops up when you open the card.  How fun!  I found the idea in the Autumn Issue of CardMaker magazine and changed the dimensions so it will fit in one of our Medium Envelopes.  

My final project is a fun card featuring the new Circle Of Spring stamp set.  This stamp set coordinates with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits so cutting out the wreath is easy-peasy!  This little wreath on the garden gate reminds me of Summer.

The gate was made with Tip Top Taupe, and the card base was Mint Macaron with a Watermelon Wonder layer.  The 2015-2017 In Color Markers were used to color the wreath, and the cute little bow was made with strands from our Burlap Ribbon.  Here is the inside of the card:

I hope you liked these projects featuring the new 2015-2017 In Colors.  You can purchase the 2015-2017 In Color Bundle for $32.50 and get 4 sheets of each color card stock and all 5 Stampin' Pads.  

Now, it's time to see what Missy Bolinger has for us this month.

Happy Stamping,
