Each year around this time I begin to say farewell to the soon to be retired set of 5 colors from the Stampin’ Up! color family. Today I want to say Farewell 2018-2020 InColors. This color family will be going away in order to make room for an incoming set of 5 colors – the 2020-2022 InColors.
I made this set of mini cards when this color collection was introduced back in 2018. You can see that original post here.
Each of these colors are available in Card Stock, Ink Pads, Ink Refills, Markers, as well as Designer Series Paper, Stampin’ Blends, and embellishments such as ribbon. When these colors retire, all of the above will be gone! Now is the time to grab these colors and stock up.
SHOP QUICKLY:When these colors sell out, they will be gone for good. From now until June 1st, these are available only while supplies last. Inventory will NOT be replenished during this time so please stock up now while you still can.
I want you to say Farewell 2018-2020 InColors, but I don’t want you to lose out.
In the Stampin’ UP! world, CASE means to Copy And Share Everything and it’s really just another way of saying we can find inspiration all around us. Sometimes, we just see a project that someone else made and we just love something about it so much it calls us to grab our supplies and make a project too. Maybe it’s the layout, or the colors, or the stamp set, or the way the sentiment is placed, or anything at all.
Well, today I CASE’d myself! Yes, my most popular PIN on Pinterest is a card I made at the beginning of the year for my downline meeting. I needed to make a number of Thank You cards and I wanted to use the Peaceful Moments stamp set which has a nice Thank You. When I grabbed that set, I thought back to that card I made and decided to remake that card, but in a different color.
It has also become my most popular Pin on Pinterest!
And here is the card I made today:
Do you see what I did? Same card, different color. I basically kept the card layout the same, except I used Bermuda Bay ink instead of Poppy Parade, and swapped out the sentiment. A couple of Black Rhinestones were added for some bling.
And just like that, I CASE’d myself! Have you ever made a card you liked so much that you CASE’d yourself? I’ve made several cards that I’ve like so much, I made them in several colors. Actually, my last class was a Facebook Live and I made a card in all 5 of the retiring 2018-2020 In Colors. You can watch that class recording on my Facebook page by clicking here.
Let’s Compare Side by Side
So which do you like better? Please leave me a comment with your choice of favorite color. I love to hear from you.
If you want to CASE this card from me, I’d be honored! And to help you, you can shop my online store here to grab any or all of the Peaceful Poppies Suite of products. These bundles are just back in stock!

I’d like to introduce you to the Ornate Garden Product Suite that will be featured in the new 2020-2021 Catalog which will be released on June 3rd. Part of the excitement of a new catalog is, well, seeing the new catalog! And part is the excitement of new products, and a new line-up of In Colors – the 5 trendy colors that are introduced every year.
The Ornate Garden Product Suite is a sneak peek from that new catalog that is available for you, right now! You don’t have to wait for the new catalog to be released. Isn’t that exciting?
Can you Spy with your little Eye?
The Ornate Garden Product Suite does contain 1 new In Color in the Designer Series Paper. Let me introduce you to the Suite and tell me if you can spy the new In Color.
That’s beautiful, isn’t it? I’ll share a few sample made with this product suite for you too
Speaking of the new 2020-2021 In Colors, let me show you Another Sneak Peek!
May Paper Pumpkin Craft Subscription Kit
Ok, that was really a tease, wasn’t it? But I can explain! All I know is the May 2020 Paper Pumpkin is going to feature 4 NEW In Colors plus Purple Posy from the 2019–2021 In Color collection. (The new In Colors will be introduced on April 24.) So, for now, we can’t see them, but I do know the kit will make 12 cards; 8 full size cards & 4 note cards. And on April 24th, this graphic should magically appear in color, In Color that is! You can subscribe to Paper Pumpkin here, right now to get the May Paper Pumpkin craft kit and be the first to get your hands on the New InColors before the catalog release. And on April 24th, check back and I’ll show you the new In Colors that will be in the May Paper Pumpkin.
So if you want to get your hands on some new catalog excitement now, you’ve got 2 different options. But why choose? I recommend getting both! And if you know someone who is at home, sheltering in place, and could use some excitement, consider a Paper Pumpkin Prepaid kit that you can gift to someone.
I’ve always said that Stampin’ UP! is on the cutting edge and always on trend. I wonder if many months ago, when the designers at Stampin’ UP! were designing stamp sets for the 2020 Sale-A-Bration promotion, if anyone was thinking about Social Distancing and Shelter in Place. Yet, this sentiment, I Miss Your Face, is perfect for the times we are in right now!
Because of Social Distancing and the orders in my state to shelter in place, I couldn’t have my regular monthly Wine Down Wednesday class. But I didn’t have to cancel my class! Thanks to Facebook Live, I was able to still have my class, and to invite all of you! You can watch that Wine Down Wednesday – Social Distance Style! Class right on my Facebook page. (You may need to scroll down to find the Wine Down Wednesday – Social Distancing Style Live video from March 25th)
Here’s my project:
The project I designed used the stamp set, Tags in Bloom, free with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration, and the sentiment “I Miss Your Face” from this stamp set. But, because I wanted everyone who was watching from home, to be able to stamp along with me, I also designed the card so that it can be made with the supplies you already have at home.
I love that Stampin’ Up’s color coordination, and product coordination make it so easy to create projects that come together so easily! This project uses Pineapple Punch cardstock, ink and ribbon and just some Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock and Black Memento Ink. As a matter of fact, you can make this with any color of cardstock with coordinating ink and ribbon. I made several cards using all of the colors from the 2018-2020 In Color Collection.
Doesn’t that look so pretty? A rainbow of colors using the 2018-2020 In Color collection. From left to right, I used Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick. All of these colors are set to retire when the annual catalog ends May 31st. If you want any of these colors cardstock, ink or accessories, I suggest you get them now! Historically, the retiring In Colors sell out. So stock up while you still can. And if you order them before March 31st, your purchases will help you qualify for Free Sale-A-Bration rewards! (Like the Tags in Bloom stamp set!). Click here to shop my online store now.
In my Facebook Live Class, I’ll show you how to make the patterned background using any small flower or geometric stamp you already have. And by using any big, bold sentiment and a coordinating punch of any shape, you can recreate this card. It uses just one color of cardstock, ink and ribbon, plus Black and White.
I hope that you will watch my video class (and while you’re there, make sure to LIKE my Facebook page) and use that pattern to make a card of your own. I made almost 2 dozen cards to mail out this weekend, to all the folks I miss right now! If you make a card using this pattern, please let me know! I love when you get inspiration from my blog posts. Leave a comment, or share a photo on my Facebook page.
Here’s another look at my card before you leave:
And here’s another link to my Online Store so you can shop before saying goodbye. SHOP NOW! Remember you’ll earn a Free Sale-A-Bration reward for every qualifying order, $50 or $100 before tax and shipping when you shop by March 31st.
Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay 6′ away from others. And be thankful that we have a hobby to keep us busy at home as we shelter in place. And get those cards in the mail to the folks who could use some cheer!
The Designer Series Paper by Stampin UP! is so pretty, it’s easy to want to hoard it rather than cut it, but…it’s so much better to cut this beautiful paper, make a card and mail it than it is to keep it in a package on the shelf. So, that’s exactly what I did! #LoveItChopIt I’ve actually challenged myself to stop being a DSP Hoarder, so I’ve come up with a brilliant compromise: I buy 2 packages of DSP and I keep one on the shelf and cut and use the other one. Then I don’t feel bad about cutting it and using. I actually feel better because I love the cards I make more than the package sitting on a shelf. And I’m pretty sure the people who receive the cards I make like that too!
The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper has such beautiful designs – florals, stripes and yes shoes, purses, lipstick and parfum bottles! Each sheet is as pretty as the next. When I saw the challenge from the Paper Players “Spring Flowers” I knew I had to break out my Best Dressed DSP and play along! I also just received the new “Label Me Lovely” punch and “Label Me Fancy” punch that were just yearning to be played with! So put them all together and this is what I made:
So, what do you think? Better than leaving this beautiful DSP in the package on a shelf, right? I’m glad that the Paper Players Challenge got me cutting my paper and making a pretty birthday card. Be sure to head over to the Paper Players page to see the Design Team cards that inspired me.
So if you are like me, I challenge YOU to use your beautiful Designer Series Paper; don’t just hoard it! But if you must hoard it, buy 2 packages. One to use and one to keep! Now is great time to stock up too because you can earn FREE Sale-A-Bration items with every $50 you purchase in product. Click here to shop my online store. SaleABration ends on March 31st.
And if you really love DSP and want to get some for free, and a mini paper cutter to help you #LoveItChopIt, then you’ll want to check out the $99 Starter Kit Special. You’ll get to choose $125 worth of products, AND get a Free Mini Paper Cutter, a 6×6 DSP paper stack, and a Stamp Set of your choice, along with $50 of business supplies and free shipping! Sweet right? Buy the $99 Starter Kit here. Sale-A-Bration ends March 31st and so does this offer so buy the starter kit today.
I know the struggle is real, but I challenge you to stop being a DSP Hoarder! Maybe my “buy 2 compromise” will help you to #LoveItChopIt . To your continued success! – Nancy

Yesterday I showed you a Simple Birthday Card using the Happy Birthday to You stamp set that you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration. You can see that card here. Today, I want to share a stepped up version of this birthday card with you. Ready? Here is is:
So, now that you’ve seen both, which do you prefer? The simple birthday card or the stepped up birthday card? Leave a comment here and let me know. Let’s take another look:
I hope that you enjoy both cards actually! I can’t say that I like one card better than the other – I like them both. Just different. Both were fun to make. Sometimes I want simple (because I don’t have a lot of time or because I know the recipient prefers clean and simple) and sometimes I want to spend more time fussing on a card because that’s what I like to do and I want my recipient to feel like I went the extra mile in making their card.
If you want any supplies to make either of these cards yourself, just click here to shop my online store. Make sure you are ordering in $50 increments so you can earn free Sale-A-Bration items!
Thanks for stopping by My Stampin’ Space today. Come back soon.
I love the classic look of pale pink and gold – it’s so rich looking. Todays Simple Birthday card was inspired by this gorgeous 1/4″ Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon. This ribbon is so satiny and just flows so nicely. So I designed a simple card just to show off the petal pink and gold.
My card base is Whisper White with a Petal Pink layer. I stamped the layer cake from Happy Birthday to You (free during SaleABration with a $50 order) in Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The outline image of this stamp set is so pretty it works well on its own (although the outline image also works well with all sorts of coloring techniques. I’ll be featuring the same image colored with the Stampin’ Blends tomorrow so stop back then.) A quick little sentiment from the Timeless Tulip stamp set was added and it was topped with the bow.
Quick and easy! Elegant and rich looking.
Tomorrow, I’ll be featuring the same image but stepped up for a totally different look. Please tell me what you think of this card, but then stop back tomorrow and let me know what you think of the stepped up card and then let me know if you prefer Simple or Stepped Up. Either way, you should make an effort to grab this Happy Birthday To You stamp set during Sale-A-Bration. It is FREE with a level 1 qualifying order.
I love Sale-A-Bration! Did you know that you can earn free products with every qualifying purchase, you can earn more when you Host during Sale-A-Bration, and you really score big when you Join during Sale-A-Bration!

My class schedule has just been updated too. Click here to see upcoming classes and register for a class today.
The beautiful flowers in the Painted Poppies stamp set lend themselves to all kinds of artistic expression. Yesterday I shared a quick and easy card made with this stamp set; you can see that card here. And I’m calling today’s card Painted Poppies for all occasions and you’ll see why in just a bit
Just like the card I featured yesterday, you can simply swap out the sentiment to make a card for any occasion. The Peaceful Moments stamp set is perfect for so many different occasions it just a ‘must have’ stamp set.
On this card I also used the coordinating Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper against a Pool Party cardstock layer. The flowers are colored with Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends and the leaves with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. The “With Deepest Sympathy” sentiment was stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink, then fussy cut with paper snips.
Sale-A-Bration is in full swing! With every $50 of product that you order, you earn 1 FREE SAB item. There is no limit on the amount of items you can earn. When you host, or place a qualifying online order of $150 or more (before tax & shipping) you earn Host Rewards too! A $300 workshop or online order gets a FREE exclusive Little Ladybug stamp set too! Consider adding a prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscription to your order to increase your SAB earnings!
The best deal, though is the $99 Starter Kit. You choose $125 worth of products, score Free Shipping and Biz Supplies, and during SAB you’ll also get an exclusive mini paper cutter, a 6×6 DSP stack, and an additional stamp set of your choice (any value). You can order the $99 Starter Kit here.
Please leave me a comment and let me know which card you like better: yesterdays card that you can see here, or today’s card Painted Poppies for all occasions.
I held my monthly team meeting yesterday and about 1/2 hour before the meeting began, I decided I wanted to provide a quick make & take card for everyone to make using the Peaceful Poppies Suite from the 2020 Mini Catalog. I sat down and made this card and it only took me 10 minutes to make from start to finish!
This is truly the kind of card that you can whip up just 1 or 2, or mass produce a large quantity. Furthermore, you can easily swap out the sentiment for any occasion; birthday, get well, thank you, thinking of you, etc. Heck, you could even make the card and not add a sentiment panel until you need a card to send and then just stamp a sentiment.
You could always stamp the inside too, as I did here:
Want to know how to make this card? Of course you do! So I will tell you. This card features products from the new Peaceful Poppies product suite (pages 24-27 of the 2020 Mini Catalog). I started with a piece Whisper White Cardstock cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored and folded in half for the card base.
Then I cropped the flowers and leaves out using the coordinating Painted Labels dies. The swirly circle was cut from Basic Black cardstock. The Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock using the companion stamp set Peaceful Moments. A 1″ x 5″ strip of B&W DSP adds some visual interest and a few Rhinestone Jewels add some bling.
And did I mention that it only took me 10 minutes to make this card from start to finish! Pretty sweet, right? With all the layers and elements, it looks like this card would have taken a pretty long to create, but the coordinating stamps and dies make it so easy. When you combine the use of black & white with just 1 color it makes a pretty dramatic statement.
You can purchase all the supplies to make this card right here from my online store, or just click the product name above. And when you purchase the stamp set and dies as a bundle you save 10%. Both the Painted Poppies Bundle and the Peaceful Moments bundle are $52 which qualify for a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! Buy both bundles and get 2 FREE Sale-A-Bration items.
So which card do you like better? The Happy Birthday card on the left or the “If Loving Thoughts could heal…” card on the right? Please leave me a comment and let me know. (Shh, don’t tell anyone but the card on the right is slightly different. Can you tell that the smaller flower on top is popped up on stampin’ dimensionals? At my team meeting, one of my members asked where the dimensionals were because I always add them. She lifted up the little flowers and the leaves, and when I got home, I made 2 get well cards for the 2 gals who weren’t there because they were sick, and I popped them up on dimensionals too! Thanks Brienne!)

I have played along with the Paper Players challenge for the past 3 weeks and although I had a full schedule this week with classes and getting ready for my World Card Making Event, I just had to carve out a few minutes to create a card to play along with the Paper Players TicTacToe challenge this week.
Thanks to the beautiful patterns in the Come to Gather DSP, I was able to crank out a card in just a few minutes! A few coordinating die cut leaves from the Gathered Leaves dies and I was almost finished! Easy – peasy!
A TicTacToe challenge is fun because you pick any three elements from a grid of nine in any winning Bingo pattern. I actually scored Bingo in a X pattern, using 5 elements, thanks to this lovely paper!
You can click on the image to go to the Paper Players site to see what others are doing with this challenge.
And here is my card:
So my card includes Fall, Die Cut, Pumpkins, Patterned Paper and Leaves! Sounds like a lot of elements but yet it is still a simple, uncluttered card. The leaves were cropped in Mint Macaron and Pear Pizzaz card stock using the Gathered Leaves dies and a simple sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set.
If you want to order any of these products, click here to be magically transported to my online store where you can order these, and many more, products.
BTW, what’s the single most important foundation to any paper crafting project? Okay, besides paper! Yes, you’re right, a paper cutter! And if you have been lamenting the loss of the Stampin’ Up! paper trimmer and replacement blades, you’ll be glad to know that Stampin’ Up! has announced a new re-designed Paper Trimmer that is now available! I ordered mine on October 1st, first thing in the morning. I even ordered mine BEFORE I made coffee – and I don’t do anything before coffee, except to stumble out of bed and stagger to the kitchen! My Kuerig is set on a timer so it is on and ready to brew when my feet hit the floor.
Anyway the new Paper Trimmer, and replacement blades, are available to demonstrators only from October 1-31st. And this includes ordering the Paper Trimmer as part of a Starter Kit for new demonstrators. So, my question to you is: Have you ever thought about joining Stampin’ UP! and becoming a demonstrator?

What is your reason? What would you like to get out of a relationship with Stampin’ UP? Think about that, and then let me know if you are interested in pursuing what joining Stampin’ UP! can do for YOU!

Today’s project is for the Paper Players Challenge – a tall and skinny card. It’s the perfect layout as I need to make a card for a co-worker who got a promotion. Actually, it is my boss who just got promoted and she’ll soon be leaving us and moving on to bigger and better places. I quickly added the “Welcome to the Team” stamp set to my order as I knew it would get a workout with my boss leaving, and a new person coming in to take her place. Plus it has several sentiments perfect for co-workers in many situations. You can see the Welcome to the Team stamp set here.
Now let’s take a look at my card:
The tall and skinny layout is perfect for stacking the chairs up. I thought the stacked chairs represented moving up in the world, which is what happens when you get a promotion, right?
The Paper Players Challenge # PP460
Click on the challenge picture to head over the Paper Players blog and play along.
Stampin’ Blends were called in to create an ombre effect of office chairs. I love coloring with the Stampin’ Blends. I’ve been teaching a Stampin’ Blends Color Club Class, once a month for the past 8 months and the more I use them, and work with them, the more I love them! (Spoiler Alert – I’m going to start offering the Stampin’ Blends Color Club Class as an online class! If this interests you, let me know). Take a closer look at the shading and blending:
I used a different color of Stampin’ Blends markers on each chair, from the top I used Mint Macaron, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Pretty Peacock. Using the darkest color on the bottom visually ‘grounds’ your elements. I stamped the chairs in Momento ink (perfect when using the Stampin’ Blends), and the sentiment on a scrap of cardstock. I used my paper snips to fussy cut the sentiment- this made it fit better and gave the visual interest of overhanging the layer as well. A few Glimmer Enamel Dots add some bling.
This card was so fun to make! I hope that you enjoy it, and even more so, I hope that I inspired you to make a card like this yourself if you need to make a card for a co-worker who got a promotion. To order any of the supplies I used to make this card, visit my online store here.
If you are placing an order, don’t forget to visit the Clearance Rack, it was just recently re-loaded with lots of items which are available at deep discounts while supplies last.
Metallic accents add so much class and bling to any project – I say “Let it Shine!” One of favorites from the new 2019 Stampin’ UP! catalog is the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper. What makes it special is the gold foil accents in the paper. And nothing says Christmas to me like plaid – win/win! Let’s take a look”
Between the plaid paper and the plaid Christmas Tree stamp from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set, I’m in Christmas plaid Heaven! And the metallic gold foil accents of the DSP repeat the gold in the Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped Ribbon. The main focal point is a Christmas tree cropped from a sheet of gold foil and the sentiment is embossed with Gold Embossing powder.
The Paper Players Challenge
I’m not the only one who is liking all these metallic accents – the Paper Players like them too as is evident by this weeks challenge which is all about Marvelous Metallics.
You call see all the submissions for the Paper Players Challenge here.
I love that I could use 3 different metallics (Gold Foil, gold foil accents in the DSP and gold embossing powder) on 1 project and have perfect coordination! The product coordination is what hooked me on Stampin’ Up! many years ago and I’m still hooked! The stamps and punches are perfectly coordinated to crop out those trees. The plaids coordinate and so do the colors.
My trusty paper snips made easy work of cropping out Christmas Cheer from the sentiment after heat embossing it with gold embossing powder.
