See you Later, Lovely Lipstick!

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators get a peek at the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog today – and I’m most excited to get a look at the new 2020-2022 In Colors. Stampin’ Up!’s color families (Brights, Subtles, Regals and Neutrals) are great, but the trendy, here-for-only-two-years In Colors are always a treat.

Unless there’s a color refresh this year (we won’t know until tomorrow), we’ll be saying goodbye to all five of Stampin’ Up!’s 2018-2020 In Colors: Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch.

Stampin' Up!'s 2018-2020 In Colors Sad to see them go but excited for what’s to come! Once it is confirmed that these colors are retiring, the related products (inks, papers, ribbons) will go fast, so don’t miss out on the ones you love! Over the next week, I’ll be sharing new projects and inspiration that feature these five colors. Today, I’m saying [a potential] goodbye to Lovely Lipstick.

Lovely Lipstick, Stampin' Up! 2018-2020 In ColorLovely Lipstick is a versatile pink – it’s sassy and fun but can also show rich depth in the right combinations. I’ve used this color a lot over the past two years and created a new project to share with you today:

Beautiful You, Last a Lifetime, Stampin Up!, Brian KingMy card features two stamp sets – one from the 2019 Annual Catalog and one from the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog – and a Designer Series Paper from the Mini Catalog. They stylish woman is from Beautiful You, an old favorite. I colored her dress and hat with Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends – so chic! I cropped her with an oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies and added a fun layer of Vellum Cardstock that peeks out from behind.Beautiful You, Last a Lifetime, Stampin Up!, Brian KingThe sentiment is built from two separate stamp sets – “IN STYLE” is part of the Beautiful You set. I found “ALWAYS” in Last a Lifetime, a new stamp set in the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog. The fonts are VERY similar. Yay for a fun find!

Here are the products I used in this project:
