Amazing Life with Retiring In-Colors

Each year, Stampin’ Up brings out new In-Colors.  They are on-trend and exciting, and oooohhh, how we love them so.  We even get to keep them around for two years, but then they retire… so sad.  BUT, at the same time we get NEW colors in their place to love so our color line is unique and always on-trend!
Amazing Life - In Colors

For this card, I wanted to highlight our retiring In-Colors, Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, and Lemon Lime Twist.  I chose to showcase how these colors coordinate together, and how simple it is to put a wow into a card just by combining our exclusive colors!

I stamped the largest sentiment in the stamp set in Black Stazon and then just colored the letters and the banner in with my In-Color markers.  Such a simple process… add some ribbon and a few sequins for some sparkle, and VOILA’.  These colors are still available, but only until June 3rd, so get them now before they are gone for good!

Oh, and you see those black smudges, welllll… that’s not gunk on your screen, that is on my card.  That is what happens when its late at night and you’re so focused on your coloring that you neglect to check your fingers for ink…. sigh…. Some people may be embarrassed about that, and refuse to show it off or showcase it, BUT NOT ME!  As I always say: “If you want perfect, you go to Hallmark, if you want awesome, you go handmade”!  That is why I call my blog Stampin Awesome… because the cards and projects arent always perfect, but they are AWESOME because they are HANDMADE!  And guess what?  Nobody I’ve ever given a card to has EVER returned it or smirked that it had a smudge on it… they immediately recognize that it is handmade and because of that, they know it’s awesome and love it even more!

Scroll down below to see all the items I used in making this card.  You can click any of the items and they will link you to my online store where you can purchase them and make your very own awesome handmade cards!

Saturday Organization Tips!

I didnt get to post last week, so Im giving you a bonus this week of THREE tips for organizing your craft space!

I like to have my tools and most commonly used items within my reach. I also find that having things like my Designer Paper and ribbons within my reach help to encourage me to use them more. To achieve this, I have a bookshelf on my desk that all of these items are kept on. I also spray painted it white so it would better match my room!

Tip 1:

Pre-cut your Designer Paper and store it in either clear stamp cases or these cello envelopes. I can show you how to do that if you need some guidance. I cut the information on the backing of the package out and keep it with my papers. This way all of the coordinating colors and the item number are available when I grab the paper. I got my clear envelopes from Amazon, and they are sized 6×6.

TIP 2:

Ribbons! I love using ribbon on projects. But I found if they are in a drawer or on a separate shelf from my workspace then I don’t use them. So I found this spice rack at Ikea. I painted it white, and voila! It has the little bar in front so the ribbon doesn’t roll off and the opening I can use to pull an end through. I considered getting a paper towel holder, but then removing the roll to replace or take to events would be more difficult… that would mean I wouldn’t use my ribbon, and we want to use our ribbon!! (I normally have more ribbon than this, but I cleared out my retiring ones into a box so I could focus on using them for classes)

TIP 3:

To keep my Designer Paper and other tools in reach and organized, I bought a wooden plate rack from Ikea! I also keep my Stamparatus plates on it. 3 plates will fit in each divided section. Depending on how many sheets of Designer Paper you have in a packet will determine how many packs can fit in each section. I fit at least 2.

This is the Ikea information for the plate rack and spice rack:

Hope you enjoyed these organization tips! I would live to hear some of yours, so please leave a comment below with what works for your space!
