In Color Stamp-Off

In Color Stamp-Off

Happy Friday! It’s time for another Friday Stamp Off. This week, we’re saying good-bye to the 2017-2019 Stampin’ Up!® In Colors – Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist, and Tranquil Tide. While I love the 2018-2020 In Colors (Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, and Blueberry Bushel), and am really enjoying the new 2019-2021 In Colors (Pretty Peacock, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray, Purple Posy, and Terracotta Tile), I’m going to miss the retiring colors – especially Lemon Lime Twist. It’s such a gorgeous mix of yellow and green.

Here’s my card for the challenge.

Stampin' Up!, Vibrant Vases, Country HomeI used all five of the retiring In Colors, plus the beautiful (and also retiring) Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) for my card.

First, I stamped the watering can from the Country Home Stamp Set on Watercolor Paper with Jet Back StazOn Ink. Then I stamped the flowers from Vibrant Vases, also in StazOn, masking the top of the can so the stems would be a bit shorter.

I colored the can with Tranquil Tide Classic Ink and an Aqua Painter, and the flowers with Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, and Powder Pink Classic Inks. I added a little Fresh Fig for the shadow. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Classic Ink on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock.

I die-cut the stamped image and the Tranquil Tide layer using the Layering Ovals Dies. Before I added the DSP and ovals to the Very Vanilla layer, I ran the Very Vanilla card stock through the die-cutting machine with the Subtle Embossing Folder. The card base is Fresh Fig.

So bye-bye, Berry Burst. Toodles, Tranquil Tide. Love you, Lemon Lime Twist. Farewell, Fresh Fig. And, parting is such sweet sorrow, Powder Pink. (Yes, I used a thesaurus for Powder Pink.) And lest I forget – So long, Share What You Love DSP. I’ll miss you all. (On the plus side, the Abstract Impressions, Country Home, and Vibrant Vases Stamp Sets are all returning to the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.)

Now – head over to Jackie’s and Susan’s blogs to see how they’ve said goodbye to our retiring In Colors.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

      Thanks, Susan. Yes, I’m going to miss the In Colors, but the new products – So. Much. Love. (I always think of Gidget when I say, “Toodles!” And I just dated myself.)
