I knew it was coming…. the 2012-2014 In Colors were destined to be retired at the end of May this year, but it always takes seeing the retirement list come out for me to suddenly have this burst of new found love for the colors! So, as I was trying to decide what card to share with you today, I saw this swap from last year and knew it was a perfect way to send off the In Colors and the stamp I’m going to miss – Oh Hello!
I was one of those people who didn’t love Summer Starfruit as a color at first. But doesn’t it look nice when you pair it with other colors? From the designer series paper (which I need to use more of in general!) to the ribbon…. they are nice touches without it being too overwhelming.
So that is a tip for you! If you have a color that you don’t love as a big piece of cardstock or ink… mix it up with some other strong colors and add it to your project in pieces, especially pieces that are patterned! It helps break it up and make it a great accent piece!
Yes, pretty much everything about this card is retiring – from the In Color Dahlias (that cute resin flower in the corner!), to the cardstock, markers to color the stamps, designer paper, ribbon, and the stamp! While the In Color cardstock is sold out, everything else is still available for now!
