You’re So Awesome – Stampin’ Up!’s 2019-2021 In Colors

Today’s card doesn’t showcase an amazing technique. It doesn’t share incredible tools for designing and creating your own cards. The card doesn’t even display a huge variety of products. Still…the simple card I’m sharing today is super-inspiring because it puts all five of our new In Colors on exhibit. Here’s my card:

Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 In Colors, Flowering Desert, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingIn order (from top-to-bottom), the new In Colors are Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray, Terracotta Tile and Pretty Peacock. How gorgeous are they!?

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • 2019-2021 In Colors. Every year Stampin’ Up! introduces us to a set of five on-trend colors that will stick around for two years. As we say goodbye to the 2017-2019 In Colors (Lemon Lime Twist, Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide, Powder Pink and Berry Burst), it’s time to start warming up to our new friends: Stampin' Up!'s 2019-2021 In Colors - Purple Posy, Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose, Terracotta Tile, Pretty PeacockI will admit that it sometimes takes me a couple of months to warm up to some colors – I’m deeply, madly in love with them just as they are retiring. Not this time. I love each of these colors and know just how I will work with them – until Stampin’ Up! gives me more reasons to love them. I introduced all five of these colors two weeks ago.

  • Retiring Flowering Desert. I think you’ll agree that the “you’re so awesome” is particularly wonderful when directed to these five In Colors. Not only do I love the feeling that’s emoted with the words, but I love the style with which they are scripted. I simply stamped the sentiment with Basic Gray on Thick Whisper White cardstock.

  • Simple Layering. The focal panel of this card is created with 1″ strips of each of the five In Colors. While I initially set out to add the stripes across the entire span of the card base, I really, really, really wanted to create a panel (so I did). Since the five strips add to 5″ (1/2″ shorter than the 5-1/2″ height of the card base), I cut the sides to 3-3/4″ (1/2″ shorter than the width of the card base). The Thick Whisper White border is 1/8″ longer and wider than the striped panel.

  1. What a great way to showcase the pretty new colors. Love the sentiment. Enjoy your day!

  2. I too love all the new colors. Seems there is something for every season.

  3. Great display of the new colors…laid out here they look darker. Thanks for sharing!

  4. What a great line-up of crisp and modern colors. Can’t wait to get my hands on these new colors. Thanks for sharing Brian.

  5. I’m always a fan of color blocking and what a cool way to show off the new colors! I’m jealous that I have to wait to order them!

  6. So soft and pretty! Have a great weekend Brian!

  7. Great idea on showcasing the new colors. The look is simple, clean, and classic. I love the white base under your panels. Is the card base black?

  8. Brian you’re awesome! I usually make a bookmark for the new incolors, what an awesome way to show them off with a card, a paper blocking card. . . So perfect! Adding the sentiment in the corner makes the focal point, both the sentiment and the 5 colors.
