Pretty Polished Pink

Today’s cards have one thing in common the In Color, Polished Pink. They are also monochromatic, which is a fun way to stamp as you can focus on the images.

So let’s start with this first card using the Color & Contour stamp Bundle (158356).

You’ll love this bundle with it’s great images and wonderful dies that are so versatile. I’m actually holding a class using this stamp set in August. You can CLICK HERE to see that class and my others for more details and to sign up.

This next card uses the In Symmetry (155140) stamp set.

And these final two cards use the Brilliant Wings Dies (155523). The dies can be teamed up with any sentiment set of your choice, like this one using Colors & Contours (154994).

And this set of dies has a detailed set like this first card in addition to a bold set that can be used independently or together to create layers of color giving you lots of options and color combinations too.

I love the fact that our In Colors have coordinating accessories like the Designer Series Paper (155641) and ribbon (155714) used for these projects. The In Color Jewels (155571) have been so popular they are currently on back order. But no worries, while you can’t order them currently they will be back soon.

Did you know if there is something that you can’t order due to backorders and want to be notified when they arrive back in stock you can contact me and I’ll be happy to let you know when they are available again.

Sweet Soft Succulent

If you love greens with a vintage feel then Soft Succulent is right up your alley. This years In Colors are fantastic together or as a stand alone color. Check out these monochromatic cards using this great new In Color, Soft Succulent. This first card uses the Hand Penned Petals Bundle (155070).

The image was stamped with Soft Succulent and then cut out with the coordinating Penned Flower Dies (155557). It was then layered onto the same shape cut out of Soft Succulent Card stock to create a shadow effect. And if you don’t recognize the scalloped rectangle, you’ll want to make sure to check out this wonderful set of dies. The very popular Scalloped Contour Dies (155560) are a great staple to have in your collection since the shapes are so versatile. And if you love paper you’ll want to take a look at this next card.

The In Color Shimmer Vellum (155616) and In Color Designer Series Paper (155641) has been cut into strips and layered onto this card to create a lovely back drop for the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (151595). A bit of texture was added to the card using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder (152718).

And how about this card using the Dragonfly Garden Bundle(156224)?

I really love this sentiment found in the set. And this next card uses the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set (158309) and Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (154317) along with a simple shadow technique in which the image is first stamped in Soft Succulent and then stamped again using VersaMark (102283) and heat embossed with our White Embossing Powder (155554).

It’s simple and striking. The Very Versailles stamp set (149275) stamp set was used to create this lovely card.

And if you don’t recognize the butterflies, they are from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies (153586) found on page 164 of the Annual Catalog. Last but not least here is a beautiful card stamped with the Host set, Better Places (155858) that you can earn for free with a private party or qualifying order.

It uses once again those popular Scallop Contour Dies that I mentioned earlier along with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder (155431) for lots of texture. The Genial Gems (155500) add a bit of shimmer to the project.

So what do you think of the new Soft Succulent? I find it a wonderfully calming color that is perfect for almost everything as you can see. lol. Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think of the NEW Soft Succulent?

Sweet Ice Cream Thank You Card

Today’s card is one I created to share during our OnTour event. I wanted to show case the NEW 2021 In Colors that I had just received during PreOrder. Here is what I came up with.

I like the way the card turned out. I used the Basic Borders Die to create a “table cloth” since I thought the Soft Succulent gave off a vintage vibe. I’m really loving the Evening Evergreen since it can be used as a neutral color like I did here.

I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial for you. This is a two step stamp set and so you’ve got all kinds of options.

Game On & New In Color Comparison

Are you big on games? I can’t remember a time when I didn’t play cards or board games. As a child my sister and I played Chinese Checkers for hours, as a teenager Gin Rummy and Sheepshead became a way to keep busy while we waiting for the meets to begin and later on the weekends when visiting friends in college as we watched the newest fad MTV, something everyone could agree on in the common room. As an adult I loved to play games with my own children, our daughter has been come quite a shark at Gin and was the only one who could best my Mother-in-law. How about you? Do you have have fond memories of playing games too?

Today’s cards all highlight games and were stamped with our retiring stamp set Game On (152646).

This first card is a fun easel fold using a classic color combination of Basic Black and Reeal Red.

And this next card is done in Rich Razzleberry with a pop of gold coming from the Metallic Pearls (146282) used on the sentiment that has been punched out using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (152883).

And finally this classic Basic Gray and Very Vanilla chess card

using the Stitched Nested Label Dies (Retiring 149638). I really hate to see these dies go I reach for them a lot.

The Game On set is only available until May 3rd or while supplies last since it is part of the Retirement List and then it will be gone forever. So why not check it out today?

And as promised here is another sneak peak at the

2021 In Colors Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen

Let’s take a look at these 2 new greens that are part of our 2021-2023 In Colors. I really like them by themselves, and love them teamed up together! The colors this year I think have a subtle grey undertone which gives them a more vintage feel. Check out the Soft Succulent here with some of our other greens.

This next group shows you our 2020 In Color Just Jade for a comparison of the 2 together

Totally different, right? Which is why I’m excited about this addition of green. And now for the Evening Evergreen. I’ve given you a grouping with our darker greens for comparison.

I think you are really going to like the Evening Evergreen and think it will make a nice addition to our more neutral colors for basic stamping too.

So what do you think? Like the new colors? If you missed yesterday’s post you’ll want to check it out since I gave you a look at first two In Colors Fresh Freesia and Polished Pink. And don’t forget and make sure to stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing the last of the 2021-2023 In Colors Pale Papaya with you and some more comparisons too.

2021 Annual Catalog Sneak Peek

The NEW Annual Catalogs are in the mail and are starting to arrive. If you are a current customer of mine you’ll be getting yours soon. So today I thought I’d share my unboxing for some of the great items I was able to PreOrder from the Annual Catalog.

2021 Annual Catalog PreOrder Sneak Peek Video

Of course, the In Colors are always my favorite place to start looking when I get the catalog – nothing like new colors! And this is the first year I think I’ve LOVE them all, typically there is one color that takes me a bit to fall in love with, but not this year. Here is a preview.

Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen, and Pale Papaya!!!

There is nothing like them in our color families – so over the next few days I thought I’d share some color comparisons with you. Today I’ll be highlighting Fresh Freesia and Polished Pink for you.

Fresh Freesia is a lovely shade of purple that will bring a smile to your face – I just love purple and am so happy we have this option. I’ve included the retiring Purple Posy for you in this first comparison so you can see its nothing like the Purple Posy that is retiring.

And Polished Pink is cheerful and a perfect shade of pink! A bit softer feeling than our Magenta Madness and Melon Mambo, but bolder and more of a true pink feeling than our Flirty Flamingo

So what do you think? Like the new colors?

Don’t forget and make sure to stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing the 2021-2023 In Colors Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent with you and some more comparisons too.
