Stampin’ Up!’s 2018-2020 In Colors retire soon!

2018-2020 In Colors Set to Retire

This card achieves three of today’s objectives:

  • Call attention to Stampin’ Up!’s retiring In Colors: Call Me Clover, Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch. Grapefruit Grove, and Blueberry Bushel
  • Use Stampin’ Up!’s Stampartus
  • Create with my newest stamp set: Positive Thoughts.

Retiring In Colors: Call Me Clover, Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch. Grapefruit Grove, and Blueberry Bushel

We’ve been able to work with these colors for almost two years. I’m always sad to see the In Colors retire, but I look forward to the new ones. Stampin’ Up! announces its list of retiring products soon, and we know it includes these colors and all of the associated products.

If you love these colors, be sure to stock up now on the ink pads, ink refills, card stock, Stampin’ Write Markers, Stampin’ Blends, ribbon, embellishments, and 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stack. These offerings are available while supplies last and are often some of the first to sell when the retirement list comes out.


Stampin’ Up!’s stamp positioning tool, the Stamparatus, allows you to do some fun techniques (in additional to being able to stamp straight!). The unique hinge system facilitates this fun stamping of the butterflies. I call it Hinge-Step Stamping. Position the first stamp on the paper, ink the image, and stamp the paper. Then, remove the plate and move it down one slot. (Look for a video later this week demonstrating this technique.) Keep stamping until you have the desired design. Be sure to clean the stamp if you’re using several colors.

Positive Thoughts

The Positive Thoughts stamp set works perfectly for the times we are experiencing. Each day, I focus on sending cards to offer happy mail and let people know someone is thinking of them. The sentiments and images in this set are perfect for that. I’m just starting to play with the images.
