Yes!  This weekend I had my New Catalog Open House and I served food based on Stampin’ Up!s brand new In-Colors.  I thought it was a fun idea and I tried some new recipes too.  I think the food was a hit and the new colors too!

in-color-samplesHere are the five new In-Colors – these will be around for the next 2 years – Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana.  Patty Bennett shared a flyer that she created in My Digital Studio and I printed it out – 4 per sheet – put it together with a piece of each color in a clear envelope to make a sample for everyone to take home.

Now I didn’t come up with a “food” for Coastal Cabana so I used it for the accents and if I had the time to go back to the store I would have looked for napkins and plates in that color – but time ran short.  I did mix up some water with blueberry lemonade flavor – so it was slightly blue and some tropical flavored skittles.  And here is the rest…

baked-brown-sugarFirst up yummy BAKED BROWN SUGAR Brie cups.  These were quick to make – I made them right before everyone came and popped them in the oven – easy and yummy.

Crisp-CanteloupeCrisp Cantaloupe – yep the easy one – just cut it up – but I did actually find a recipe for Cantaloupe Popsicle’s – I didn’t have a chance to try it but they looked interesting.

Pistachio Pudding Cake

Pistachio Pudding Cake

I never even knew there was such a thing but I found a PISTACHIO PUDDING Cake recipe.  It was good.  Looks like something fun to make on St. Patrick’s day too.

Strawberry-SlushAnd yummy STRAWBERRY SLUSH cups – and this wasn’t from a recipe either – I ended up making something up since I couldn’t find anything.  These were super easy to make and I thought they turned out great.  And the potential to add a little something to them for an adults only beverage would work too :).

It was a fun afternoon at my open house.  And for everyone that placed an order the names were put in a random drawing for free Stampin’ Up! products.  Tyler picked the winner and drum roll please…….

The winner is……


Jeannette gets $50 in FREE Stampin’ Up! Products!  Yippee!

Thanks for stopping by.  Oh – I’ll post the recipes tomorrow.
