A Fond Farewell Hop!...(with Candy!)...

Welcome to the Pals June Blog Hop! This month, we're bidding a "Fond Farewell" to some of our old friends, the 30 retiring colors of Stampin' Up's Color Renovation.
If you've hopped over from the very cool Mike Funke's Stampin' Style, I'm stop #10 and I'm glad you hopped by. If you should "hop" off course, simply click on any of the links on the hop line-up below and you'll be back on track.
To give our colors a real send-off, we're offering BLOG CANDY at each and every stop. Visit all 17 blogs and leave a comment answering a specific question, and you'll have 17 chances to win some Stampin' Up goodies!


To view an image up-close, please click on the photo.

To bid proper goodbye to the Retiring Colors, I decided to see if I could make a card that used ALL of them. I didn't think I could do it, but I did manage to make this fun, bright card to pay homage to all the wonderful colors that have become almost like friends.
For this card, I used two punches, one from the new Punch Pack and the other a 1/2" Circle Punch. I simply punched every color twice and then assembled them onto a piece of white card stock. I used a 1-3/4" Circle Punch to cut a window through my colorful panel as well as my white card base and glued a piece of Basic Black to the inside of the card. For the sentiment, I brought out an old hostess stamp -- I thought the message a perfect fit to say not only au revoir, but also to look forward to some exciting new additions!

lisa808 said...

What a fun card!

My favorite retiring color is Almost Amethyst. I am sad to see it retire and sadder that there is not a replacement shade. Come July, all of the purple colors will be dark. I wish there was a new lighter shade for layering.

Thanks for the chance to win your amazing blog candy package.

Stacy said...

Wow, how did you get all those circles to line up so perfectly! Great job! My favorite color that is retiring is Apricot Appeal. I'm also going to miss Sage Shadow!

And for your question...sadly I just made the acquaintance of some fo these colors and barely got to know them before their departure...my two faves of the retiring bunch are definitely Summer Sun and Brilliant Blue!

Barbara B. said...

What a great blog, you have some amazing projects here! The color I will miss the most is probably pixie pink. I love the brights family, and will miss a lot of those colors. Awesome blog giveaway.

Melanie said...

I love this card!! And I am totally with you--I can't believe that SU is retiring Sage Shadow. Luckily, I have a little paper in my stash, and I hope that will ease the pain.

Dorene said...

Oh my there are so many that I will miss, but probably Lovely Lilac the most. I just love my purples and greens together - can you say Cottage Wall nut?

Lillian Child said...

I love your idea - what a great way to use up bits and pieces of card stock! Dots and circles - love it! I'm going to miss Old Olive for sure!

Carol said...

I can't choose just one! Brilliant blue is one of our school colors. I love taken with teal. Ruby red was my favorite red for Christmas. Also green galore and close to cocoa! Sorry I couldn't give you just one.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Traci Davis said...

Your card is AMAZING. What a great way to use up little scraps of paper. Okay, what is your trick for lining up your dots? I have to give this a try. Brilliant Blue and Only Orange are my favorite retiring colors. They are my college team colors and boy will I miss them. I stocked up but that will only go so far...

Lisa said...

Cameo Coral is my pick. I find myself going to this color and using it on most of my cards. Such a great idea for your card and yet so simple. Love your candy blog.

My favorite retiring color is Mellow Moss (...heavy sigh...) I'll miss it, but am looking forward to some fun new colors! What a great polka dot card idea. Lots of glueing!

Glad I discovered this blog when I was on my "hop". I really like it :)

CJ said...

Cameo coral. I'll miss it.

I am going to miss Cameo Coral - it is outside my "colour zone" but I always liked it.

mmwilken said...

That card would be a good scraps card. Simply, but oh so pretty!! Going to miss Sage Shadow! Some times your favorites are the first to go!!

Sabriena Satchwell An Independent Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator said...

First I have to say I LOVE your card!! What an awesome idea to showcase a bunch of fun colours all at once.
I am the most sad about losing Taken with Teal and Bermuda Bay :-( They were both such bright and cheery blue/greens!

Peanut's Mom said...

What an uplifting card with all these colors! Great job! I'm sad to see Brocade Blue go.

Queen Mary said...

Regina, your card is SO CUTE! I'm going to miss Creamy Caramel -- as a friend noted, what are we going to use for ethnic skin tones? Needless to say I'm keeping the marker and a re-inker!

kellygrl27 said...

What wonderful blog candy! I will miss lovely lilac becaus it coordinates with my cottage wall dsp that is also retiring!

Julie Mirous said...

Heidi G said...

Regina! I love polka dots and I love your card! How did you get them lined up so beautifully? I totally agree with you, Sage Shadow is my absolute favorite retiring color. I ordered it in 12X12 paper as soon as the retirements were announced and was delighted when my 8-1/2 by 11 order was filled with textured sage shadow paper. I can't get enough textured paper from SU!

Melissa Ilagan said...

What a beautiful card! Who would have thought all of those different colors would mesh together so beautifully!

I am so sad to see Taken with Teal go! I love the color and use it in at least every other card. Oh well.

Thanks for the chance to win.

David said...

Great blog and love to look at your cards. I will miss many of the retiring colors, but mostly Close to Cocoa.

catherinedewaal said...

I will miss close to cocoa. Love your blog. Thanks for a chance to win!

Margaret said...

Green Galore is my favorite--known in my family as "wedding invitation green". Yes, I really did have my wedding invitations in that bright green! Hey, it was 1972, and I wanted a happy-looking wedding, and was rebelling against everything white and boring!
Also adore Bermuda Bay and Taken with Teal. Many colors might not be our favorite, but so good for coloring and layering.
Your card is amazingly wonderful--never though you could use hem all and look so wonderful!

Joyce Miller said...

What a darling dot card. Very creative. The soft colors of brown and green will be most missed by me.

Charity said...

I love green and my favorite retiring color is Green Galore.

Sandy G said...

That's a hard question. I probably will say Sage Shadow also. Some many ways to use it.

Tracy said...

I am so new to Stampin Up! But I love Pixie Pink, even love the name!

I'm partial to Close to Cocoa.It's a good cocoa color for lots of matts and mixing with other colors. I don't think I've found a color it didn't mix well.
