Welcome to week 46 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is a very light neutral colour: Smokey Slate.

Because these neutrals go with every colour I thought it would be a perfect colour to showcase our retiring In-Colours in a series of cards that use other retiring products too.

I like to call this set my typing pool!

I decided to use the delightful “P.S. You’re the Best stamp set” as it was just perfect for my friend Bruce. I’m going to his 50th birthday party this weekend and he is an author and currently writing his next book.

I think I’ll give Bruce the Lemon-lime twist card with the festive balloon paper from the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper.

What I really like about this stamp set is that you can use it with any colour to make either male or female cards. The Powder Pink card is very feminine.

The Fresh Fig card is also very feminine, using the Petal Promenade DSP

The Berry Burst card and the Tranquil tide card could work for men or women and both use the Tranquil Textures DSP.

My favourite thing about my typing pool cards is the way they open…it is a type of fancy fold but I’m not sure what it’s called!

Another fantastic retiring product I used was the Envelope punch board to make a matching envelope for each card.
