New In Colors and New Ink Pad Design Video

I'm just starting to make videos, but I thought I'd make this Quick as a Bunny video to show the new In Colors for 2018-2020 and new Ink Pad Design.

My Inky Friends Stampin' Up! Retiring In Colors Blog Hop




Welcome to the Inky Friends' Stampin' Up! Retiring In Colors Blog Hop!  For a complete list of the participants, click here: Inky Friends Blog

You may have arrived from Yapha's blog where she highlighted my other favorite retiring In Color, Peekaboo Peach, in some gorgeous color combinations and fantastic cards.

I chose to use Sweet Sugarplum which is one of my favorite colors from the 2016-2018 In Colors.
I will really miss it in the coming year because it is so soft and soothing.  I went "Old School" and rolled the corner of this main image layer, and I think it added interest to a simple card.  I'll also miss this hostess set, Tranquil Tulips.  I've enjoyed using it with a variety of techniques and color combinations.


I also love the Petal Garden designer series paper stack, and Sweet Sugarplum figures prominently in this floral infusion.  For this Mother's Day card, I used the Apron of Love set with Basic Black accents for a sweet little card.

Next, we have Holly's cutie pie Bear card with Emerald Envy on her Rubber Redneck Blog.  It is so crisp,modern and fun.

Retirement Lists, In Colors, Color and Inkpad Revamp

There are some beautiful NEW colors, and some unusual choices in the Neutrals grouping (Merry Merlot, Night of Navy and Mossy Meadow???)

Some of the newly returning colors are old favorites, but I will definitely miss Soft Sky. We also lost Chocolate Chip which I loved.


I am eager to see the Soft Sea Foam and Granny Apple Green from the new colors, and from the new In Colors, I love Blueberry Bushel.

The shape of the inkpads should be helpful because they are easier to open (once one gets accustomed to it I bet!).

The Retiring Colors are:
All 2016-2018 In Colors except Flirty Flamingo
Always Artichoke
Chocolate Chip 
Elegant Eggplant
Island Indigo
Marina Mist
Perfect Plum
Pink Pirouette
Rose Red
Soft Sky
Tangerine Tango
Tempting Turquoise
Wild Wasabi
Wisteria Wonder 

Archival Gray and Archival Black Inkpads

Other colors are only retiring because of the ink pad change.
If you ~LOVE~ any of these colors, order refills quickly just in case.


Thanks to Lyssa Zwolanek for the graphics.

Peekaboo Peach Tulips


I'm really going to miss Peekaboo Peach! It is such a lovely, rich pale orange.  It also looks really fresh as a tulip color on this card made with the hostess set, Tranquil Tulips.

Bottle Cap Treat Bags

I made these Bottle Cap candy-filled Bottle Treats using the Bottles from the Designer Series Paper, but they would be just as fun if made using the Bubble Over Stamp Set with the Bottles and Bubbles Framelits Dies. The bottle caps are so quick to die cut from Silver Foil Paper because Stampin' Up! gave us two dies of each size! I stamped the Thank You from the set and punched using the matching die for a cute "Thank You" for my customers. Bottle Caps aren't everyone's favorite, but it was too cute not to make these!

Charming Cafe Fruit Basket note cards Thank you to my team!

It is the last day to earn the Sale-A-Bration, Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes with each $50 order ( before tax and shipping charges).  These cards are great with designer series paper to create quick yet cute cards!  The sentiment from the Charming Cafe Stamp Set was perfect for these cards, and for a variety of friend uses!

Because of my customers and my downline, I earned Silver Elite level with Stampin' Up! yesterday, and I am pretty happy. I made these cards for demonstrators who are signed up under me with Stampin' Up! as a Thank You. 

I really appreciate everyone who chooses to order with me or participate in stamping! Just call or email if there is something you need! Sale-A-Bration ends tonight/March 31, so don't delay!
