Pals Blog Hop: The New 2020-22 In-Colors!


Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our theme is the “new 2020-2022 In Colors.” The Design Team is showcasing the new family of in colors from the new catalog. We know you will love them as much as we do! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I am loving ALL the new In Colors found in the 2020-21 Annual catalog, along with everything else, of course.  Yes, my wish list is long!  I decided to focus on one of my favorite new colors: Magenta Madness!

Celebrate Sunflowers - Lovely You Bundle - Magenta Madness - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'I combined elements from the Lovely You bundle and the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle to create a card with the very dynamic Magenta Madness.  These two bundles were my first two ordered during the Demonstrator Pre-Order, and will be very popular for customers!  If I were you, I’d get these bundles NOW if you haven’t already!

The card is built on a card base of Magenta Madness.  On the front, I cut a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series paper at 3″ by 4 1/2″.  Honestly, the paper looks like 3D pieces of wood, very realistic. Around the top of that DSP panel, I adhered a strip of Faux Suede 1/4″ ribbon — it does feel like suede! I cut a panel of Magenta Madness, stamped a few background images in Versamark on it, and then embossed it with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered both panels to the card base.

From there, I created a Magenta Sunflower by stamping one onto cardstock with Versamark Ink, and cutting it out.  I then cut out a detailed sunflower die in Magenta Madness as well. I cut out a Center in Early Espresso, adhered the whole thing together, and popped it up onto the card with Dimensionals.  I punched two sprigs from the sprig punch in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper to add some lightness and sparkle to the card.

I heat embossed a sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set with Versamark ink and then White Embossing Powder onto a scrap of Early Espresso.  I punched it out with the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.  I will be reaching for this a ton! I finished with a ribbon bow and some In-Color Enamel Dots.

Below is a similar card using the Tasteful Touches bundle with a more subtle color – Petal Pink.  As you can see, the design works with any combination. A list of all the products I used for this project can be found at the bottom of this post.

  1. OMG Mary this is so fun! And that magenta is STUNNING in your photos – I didn’t realize it was so vibrant! Maybe this is my favorite of the new In Colors after all!
