Expressions In Color by Paper Pumpkin

Dream and discover In Color!  With the Expressions In Color Paper Pumpkin Kit, you’ll be introduced to Stampin' Up!'s intriguing collection of In Colors for 2021–2023, and you’ll find a familiar shade from our 2020–2022 In Color selection.  This month’s ink-credible kit contains enough elements to create nine cards, with coordinating envelopes, including ink-stained paper pieces, an exclusive stamp set, and not one, but two Classic Stampin’ Spots! And, it all comes in a cute, colorful box.

What are In Colors, anyway?  In Colors consist of a limited-edition collection of colors. Stampin' Up! comes up with a new collection every year with the release of the annual.  Each In Color collection consists of ink, paper, markers, and more.  The catch?  They’re only available to purchase for a period of two years, so stock up on your favorite In Color supplies while you can!

Fresh Freesia Blossom in Bloom

I used everything Fresh Freesia (new In Color) for this get well card.  The Blossom in Bloom stamp was inked in Fresh Freesia and stamped on a piece of Basic White cardstock.  So Saffron ink was used for the center of the flowers and a sweet bow was added with the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon.  This was a quick and easy card to create and pop in the mail to someone feeling under the weather.

We BEE Stamping Team Blog Hop - Everything Masculine

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon (5)

Welcome to the We BEE Stamping Team Blog Hop - Everything Masculine

Do you get "stuck" creating masculine cards?  It seems we have plenty of ideas for feminine cards, but hit a brick wall when it comes to creating masculine cards.    Don't reinvent the wheel when creating "dude" cards.  You can easily take a layout you like and "man it up" for the guys in you life.  Keep the following in mind to create easy masculine cards-

  • Use a more masculine stamp set.
  • Choose less feminine colors.  Think stronger/deeper colors.
  • Designer Series Paper with a plaid or strip pattern will add a pop of interest.
  • Go ahead and add embellishments. Just use a different type like enamel dots and twine.

For this masculine card I used Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.  Yep, very feminine Designer Series Paper, but this collection has a very bold and deep color stripe - Designer Series Papers has TWO sides.

 The Handsomely Suited stamp set was my number one choice to create a masculine card.  I also used the new Basic Borders dies to create a unique card front.  I used the die on the front of the cardstock and then added a piece of DSP on the inside.


I really like the greeting in this set and changed it up to make a birthday card.


I used the same design/layout to create a feminine card.  Again, I picked a feminine stamp set.  The Dressed to Impress stamp set, All Dressed Up Dies, Hand Penned Designer Series Paper and the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.
