2020 2021 In Color Comparison - Facebook Live Replay

Today I am going to share with you the new 2020-2022 Stampin’ Up! In Colors and we are going to take a deep dive into them.  

So, what are In Colors:  Well I am glad you asked.  In Colors are a group of colors that Stampin’ Up! Comes out with every two years.  We get five new ones when they come out.  These are colors that are not in any of the current color families, and they complement and support the core colors.  They are also colors that are very on trend at the time.  So, you can count on your projects being on trend when you use them.  

This year’s colors are Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Bumblebee, Magenta Madness, and Misty Moonlight.  Let's look at each color with colors from the current Stampin' Up! Color Families and see how they compare.  

Cinnamon Cider – a rich warm golden hue that reminds me of the crisp cool air of fall and the changing leaves.  This is quickly becoming one of my favorite colors.  Compared with similar colors you can see that there's no comparison color for Cinnamon Cider.  It will look great with Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, and Cajun Craze.  

Bumblebee – Bumblebee is close in hue to its name sake.  It is a fun warmer yellow tone that will a great summer and fall color.  Compared with Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, and Mango Melody you can see that Bumblebee really doesn't look like any of them.  It's kind of close to Crushed Curry but not really.  In the video I also compare it with hello honey and Delightful Dijon two retired In Colors from past years.  Bumblebee looks great with Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, Poppy Parade, Shaded Spruce, Merry Merlot, and Flirty Flamingo. 

Magenta Madness - Is a very bright magenta color.  If you want to liven a project up with a bold bright color this is the one for you.  Has a very 70’s color feel.  Compared with Melon Mambo, Berry Burst (retired), Flirty Flamingo, Rococo Rose.   Looks great with coastal cabana, so saffron, pool party, granny apple green, mango melody, and calypso coral

Misty Moonlight – very warm denim tone great color for any time of the year and to add to your masculine projects.  I compared it with night of navy, dapper denim(retired), pacific point, other blues
Misty Moonlight looks good with balmy blue, petal pink, night of navy, daffodil delight, crumb cake, & mossy meadow

Just Jade – fun green shade that will be a great all year long green.  Has a hint of a subtle but the brightness of a bright.  I compared Just Jade to all green shades that we currently have (pictured above is just a few), and I also pulled Emerald Envy that retired and looked at it against it.  Just Jade looks great with petal pink, gray granite, crushed curry, rich Razzleberry, shaded spruce, calypso coral

Thanks for dropping by today I hope you find this comparison of the new 2020-2022 In Colors helpful.  They will be here in just over a week.  Can you believe it.

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.
