Lovely You 2020 2022 In Color Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card featuring one of my favorite stamp sets from the new catalog and the 2020-2022 In Colors.  I mentioned Monday that I would be highlighting the new In Colors from Stampin’ Up! All week.  So, with that said:  here is my card.

What Are In Colors:

Some of you may not know what I am talking about when I say In Colors.  We get five new colors that are not currently in one of the Stampin’ Up! Color Families.  These colors are colors that you see every day in magazines, cloths, home d├ęcor, and so many other places.  They are also colors that are very on trend.  In Colors change out every two years, and then five new colors replace the ones leaving.  So, you can see how important they are in your crafting.  They help keep your crafting stash trendy and up to date and they help add a little spice to your life.

This is an easy card that you can reproduce quickly.  You can even use scraps of cardstock to recreate it.  Because that was exactly what I did. Using up your scraps makes for a fun way to get more bang for your buck.  And, not to mention less clutter in your craft room.  I used post-it-tape to hold my cardstock in place while I lined them all up and stamped each image.  But you can use whatever you want to hold the cardstock in place.  Or just go freestyle and let the stamped images land where they land.

You only will use one ink pad for all the delicate florals, fronds, and flourishes from the Lovely You Stamp Set.  Yes, only one to get all the colors you see.  I used Versamark to achieve the look of all the In Colors.  I had to use Versamark because it is a nice watermark ink, and we were not able to order the In-Color ink pads yet.  But Versamark worked fine for the look I wanted.  Once you have all the images stamped on each piece of cardstock:  It is time to get everything glued in to place.  Now you can use your favorite adhesive to do this, but I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue, or Snail Adhesive to attach each layer.  You will want a base to attach the layers to, so a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock is an excellent choice. 

Once you have all the 2020-2022 In Color stamped cardstock strips arranged you will add them to the Whisper White layer, you are going to need to trim this layer down to 3 ¾ x 5.  Next you will pop it up on the 4 ¼ x 11 (scored at 5 ½) Thick Whisper White Card base with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Once I had my colorful background all in place it was time to create a little sentiment and focal image.  For my sentiment strip I used the new Lovely Labels Pick A Punch.  And I am going to go ahead and say I predict that this punch sales out quickly.  Because it is going to be such a versatile tool in your craft room.  What is unique about this new punch is you get two designs in three different widths.  As you can see on my card example.  The sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink onto a strop of ¾” Whisper White Cardstock.  The decorate edges where one of the sides from the Lovely Label Pick A Punch, I actually punched the other design in the Basic Black Cardstock but you really  can not see the end.

To finish off the card you are going to add some linen thread that you will make into a little string nest.  You will secure the little nest with a little Tear & Tape and place the sentiment strip over it.  Add a few rhinestones to dress it up and you are good to go.
