Due to our grand move and my classes being on hold, I started working on ideas for the Spring, and that involved a project using our beautiful In-Color Purple Posy. However, Stampin Up announced on Tuesday that they will be discontinuing the Purple Posy ink pad that was launched this year, effective immediately. Now, while it seems shocking and definitely sad, I have to commend them for the reasons. The ink pad continuously kept failing their quality check systems. They thought they had it fixed but then issues were brought to their attention again. Due to it just not working for this particular color formula, they immediately made the ink pad and refill unoradable. Again, this is kind of shocking but I’m glad they didn’t even try to make a buck off of the known defective ink pads just to deplete inventory.
I was going to save this card for that series but with the news of Purple Posy I figured I’d post it now, and then also make it again with a different color scheme. This card is CASE’ing page 123 of the Annual Catalog, using the “Beautiful Friendship” stamp set.
