Four New In Colors for FabFri137

The FabFriday Challenge launches a new challenge today – a simple sketch with a simple band across the card. My card also features four of the 2018-2020 In Colors – what fun! My card also pairs some brand new products with some long-time favorites. Here’s my card:

Lift Me Up, Detailed with Love, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, FabFri137And here’s the banner for the FabFriday Challenge sketch that inspired my card:

FabFri137Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Lift Me Up. The bright colors and fun patterned papers on this card are bright and cheery and fun, but the balloons from the Lift Me Up stamp set really deliver loads of joy to this project. They offer a little movement to this simple layout. I’ve always loved this set (the balloons are great, and the sentiments are really versatile), but these new colors really give the images new life. Here’s a Look at the Lift Me Up stamp set: Lift Me Up, Stampin' Up!, 142896I’ve included a link to the coordinating Up & Away Thinlits Dies in the product listing at the base of this post. If you don’t have them, please take another look. Both are perfect for Spring and Summer.
  • 6″ x 6″ Color Stacks. I’ve really missed having my Designer Series Paper Color Stacks – packs of printed papers in the colors of each color family. Well, they’ve been redesigned and have returned, and I’m over-the-moon about them. The newly designed pages come in a 6″ x 6″ pack – YAY! The packs for each of the four color families contain 40 sheets (2 each of 2 double-sided designs in 10 colors), which the packs for each of the In Color collections contain 40 sheets (4 each of 2 double-sided designs in 5 colors). Here’s a look at the versatile patterns:2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! 146963
