Happy Friday, friends! It’s take two for project inspiration using the retiring 2018-2020 In Colors Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel. Enjoy not just this card, but a few favorites from years past, along with a link to all the projects I created with these colors.
If you missed the vibrant bouquet of flowers on Wednesday’s Mother’s Day card project, see it HERE. While that card focused on using Stampin’ Blends Markers with matching cardstock and ink for a polished project, today’s project shows you a fun way to use the coordinating ribbons.
Find the 2018-2020 In Colors now on the LAST CHANCE PRODUCTS list – along with all retiring products from this year’s lineup. The new 2020-2021 Catalog is coming June 3rd, so we’re making room for the new. Please, do your part to bring some retiring favorites to live with YOU!?
Retiring 2018-2020 In Colors- SAVVY TIP
Grab the INK REFILL for your Classic Stampin’ Pad NOW! No one- not even a single person- has ever told me they regretted spending the few dollars. MANY though, have told me they regretted not getting the refill while they could! It’ll keep your ink pad juicy for many, many years and can be used to re-ink Stampin’ Write Markers as well- not to mention lots of other fun techniques. Well worth the few dollars, but hurry- they tend to sell out quickly!
Today’s card is so quick and easy and can be used with your favorite sentiment to fit most any occasion. This sentiment is from COUNTRY HOME (which will continue to be available for the next year- wooHOO!)
- Start with an A2 card base made with Thick Whisper White Cardstock
- (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored & folded @ 4-1/4″)
- Stamp sentiment of choice.
- Adhere strips of 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon in each of the 2018-2020 In Colors onto card front with SNAIL Adhesive.
- Tie a separate bow for each color; adhere with a Mini Glue Dot

This set of cards is SOOO FUN to make using the ACCENTED BLOOMS Stamp set. It’s also on the retiring list, so grab it when you add the In Colors to your cart.
Click HERE or on the photo above for project details, including a video tutorial of my easy-peasy, stress-relieving way to watercolor stamped images.
This set of 3″ x 3″ mini-cards can be made in 30 minutes or less and are perfect attached to wedding, birthday, or graduation gifts. I am really sad to see the STITCHED ALL AROUND Stamps and STITCHED LABELS Dies retiring. I used them a LOT and highly recommend adding them to your craft stash before they retire… very versatile!
Click the photo above or HERE for project details and tips on what I call quick and easy ‘batch processing’.
Note: The 2018-2020 In Colors Designer Series Paper sold out already, so simply substitute Cardstock instead.
Last One! Create multi-colored sentiments like this with the 2018-20 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers, then add an easy accent with the scallop die from SEASONAL LAYERS (retiring also), and top it with a matching bow using Lovely Lipstick 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.
This sentiment was from Picture Perfect Birthday, which retired last year; use your current favorite, along with the 2018-20 Cardstock Pack for the scallops in lieu of the sold out DSP.
Find project details, along with how-to tips on adapting dies to other sizes HERE.
