Freshly Brewed Projects: Retiring In Colours

The inspiration for this Freshly Brewed Project is ….

Retiring In Colours

With the new 2020-2021 annual catalogue about to go live we need to say goodbye to the 2018-2020 In Colours before we introduce 5 new on trend colours. We are saying goodbye to Lovely Lipstick, Call me Clover, Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove and Blueberry Bushel.

I have to admit it took me a while to warm up to this group of colours as I do not go straight for the bright and bold colour pallets. I know that there are going to be a few people that will miss them. But I love a challenge and have had fun coming up with some ideas and inspiration using these colours. My favourite colour of them all is Blueberry Bushel.

My first set of cards I made to send out to my siblings during this time of social isolation. So I wanted them to be bright and cheerful. I also used the Share Sunshine PDF Download by Stampin’ Up! that I purchased.

  • Starting with a piece of card stock in each of the colours emboss each with a different embossing folder than cut into 1/2inch strips.
  • Taking a piece of black card stock 10cm x 14.4cm start to create a pattern before adhering it down, when happy adher permanently.
  • Next cut off any over hanging pieces and adhere to the card base, I chose a black card base.
  • Now all you need to do is stamp your sentiment and embellish as you wish.

For the next two cards I again used all of the 5 colours to create simple stamped cards.

The first one I used the Morning Star and Stargazing Stamp Sets as well as the Stitched Stars Dies.

The second ones uses the Layered with Kindness and Morning Star Stamp sets plus the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.

I’m not sure about you but I have been doing a little extra cooking and baking over this time, as well as sending out a few care packages. So I am needing a few gift tags. This last project uses a range of coordinating products in each of the colours to create these gift tags. I also used the So Sentimental Bundle plus the Delightful Tags Topper and the Banner Triple Punch.

I hope you have found some inspiration with these project. Remember these In Colours are retiring and you will need to purchase them now before they run out.


Now let’s go hopping …
