Be Inspired: 2019-2021 In Colors

It’s time for another Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop – what fun! The Be Inspired Design Team is a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the world who are excited to share our themed projects with you. I’m so honored to be a part of this group of talented stampers!

For today’s Be Inspired Blog Hop, we are sharing fun ideas with Stampin’ Up!’s 2019-2020 In Colors. While it might be a challenge to combine all five of the new colors, they are individually spectacular. Still, I challenged myself to blend them into one project. We’re sharing a huge variety of projects on today’s hop – and you’re going to want to see all of it. If you aren’t starting the hop here, then you probably just popped over from the amazing project shared by my talented Canadian friend Carolynn Sander.

Let’s see if you can find all five of the 2019-2020 In Colors in my project. Here’s my card:

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • 2019-2020 In Colors. Let’s start with the heart of this blog hop – the 2019-2020 In Colors. It’s always exciting when Stampin’ Up! releases the five new colors that will be part of our creative lives for (at least) the next two years. Here’s a look at the beauties that will be around from 2019 until 2021: Purple Posy, Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose, Terracotta Tile and Pretty Peacock:Stampin' Up!'s 2019-2021 In Colors - Purple Posy, Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose, Terracotta Tile, Pretty PeacockAll five of these colors are showcased in the gorgeous patterns of the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper, new in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog.

  • Colors, Colors, Colors. Since this project is all about the 2019-2020 In Colors, they must all be featured here, right? Let’s take a closer look:
    • The background panel of Woven Threads Designer Series Paper includes four of the five – if you look closely, you can see bits of Purple, Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose and Terracotta Tile. I don’t normally cover the base of the card, but I really like the look here and will likely try this again soon.
    • The smaller panel is a mix of Rococo Rose and Terracotta Tile. Even though the panel below it showcases the the purples and blues a bit more, this panel allows the pinks to shine.
    • The flower is stamped with Gray Granite and Rococo Rose. The leaf…wait for it…is stamped with Gray Granite and Pretty Peacock (after it was stamped off three times).
  • To a Wild Rose Bundle. While the papers and colors are super-important to this card, it’s the To a Wild Rose Bundle that pulled it all together for me. I love the beautiful texture of this flower – you COULD color it in, but you don’t have to when the stamps make it so easy for us.

Love it!
