With all that’s been going on this Spring, I have almost completely forgotten that May is just around the corner. And for those of us who love crafting with Stampin’ Up! products, that means that it’s not long at all before we will have to say, “Goodbye,” to the bright and cheery 2018?2020 Stampin’ Up! In Colors.
The 2018 In Colors Are So Bright!
I remember in June of 2018 when I was so excited that we were finally going to have a group of bright colors. Those brights include three beautiful primary colors – Blueberry Bushel, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch. Those, along with two gorgeous secondary colors – Call Me Clover and Grapefruit Grove – helped me create vibrant projects throughout the next two years. Now, before I know it, the colors will be gone! I’ll miss them.
And the In Colors Are Not Just Paper and Ink Colors
Sometimes I think of the In Colors – actually any Stampin’ Up! colors – in terms of paper and ink. But Stampin’ Up! does so much more with its colors. In this set of cards, I’ve used not only all five inks and cardstock in all five color. But I’ve also used the 6” square Designer Series Paper stack for the 2018?2020 In Colors, and the matching 1/8” Grosgrain ribbons for Grapefruit Grove, Call Me Clover, and Lovely Lipstick.
Oh, and then there’s a bit of embellishments on the stamped element – the beautiful Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots. While the colors aren’t all the same (the blue is Navy and the orange is Coral), they’re pretty close! I could have used the 2018?2020 In Color Buttons, which are just as bright and cheerful as everything else related to this group of colors. But my cards started screaming, “Enough!”
These Are Popular Colors and Will Sell Out Fast!
Now here’s the thing: these are VERY popular colors, as you’d expect. But once Stampin’ Up! retires them as of June 3rd of this year, they’re most likely gone from the collection forever. That’s not 100% sure as Stampin’ Up! has brought some colors back after a couple of years in recent memory. But that’s rare. And what’s going to happen as the month of May progresses, is that a lot of products related to these In Colors are going to run out. So, if you’re interested in keeping these colors around for a while longer, now would be a good time to start stocking up.
