Tribute to In Colors: Tangelo Twist

This week I've been creating and posting cards that highlight the 2014 - 2016 In Colors.  As you know, their life with Stampin' Up! is about to end (May 31), and I thought it would be fun to send them off with a little tribute to each.  I've shown Lost Lagoon (see it here), Hello Honey (see it here), and Mossy Meadow (see it here).

Today, I tackled Tangelo Twist. It was a bit of a challenge for me!  It's a great orange, but when I look at it I think of Halloween.  Probably because there was a fun pack of Designer Series Paper in the fall called Happy Haunting that had Tangelo Twist and Black.

Then today, my daughter sent me this beautiful photo from the tulip fields she was visiting up in Washington ~

~ and that was all the inspiration I needed!  Thanks, Olivia!

OK, now I'm looking all through my catalog to find this stamp as I was sure it carried over from a previous catalog, but it isn't there.  It was a single stamp called Love is Kindness, and I'll bet many of you still have it.  If not, I apologize for using a retired stamp!  There are several other flower stamps that would be beautiful on this card, but alas - no tulips!  I digress... The colors I used to color this image were Tangelo Twist, Daffodil Delight, and Pear Pizzazz.  I stamped the newspaper portion onto Daffodil Delight, cut it out, and glued it to the image.

Skinny black layers and the Daffodil polka-dot from the Brights DSP Stack bring a pop of color.

All things Tangelo Twist will be posted at the bottom so you can stock up before they are gone!  Pssst, the Satin Stitched Ribbon is on sale in the Clearance Rack for $3.59!

One more thing, today is the last day of 2016 Sale-A-Bration!  Did you get all the free goodies that you wanted from the SAB Catalog?  If not, you have till the end of today.  It was my favorite SAB so far.  I loved all that was offered.  They get better and better each year, don't they?

One more color to go ~ my all-time favorite:  Blackberry Bliss.  Until then,

Happy Stamping!
