ICS Blog Hop... 2021-23 In Colors

ICS header

Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop.   This month we are hopping with the focus on the 2021-23 In Colors.   I think this group of In Colors are the best ones yet.  

I couldn't decide what color to use so I pulled the stamps I wanted to use, Kangaroo & Company.  I was happy to find in the stamp case the kangaroo all colored and even more surprisingly colored using Pale Papaya.  


The Kangaroo & Co bundle from the 2021 January-June Mini Catalog will be retiring.  I will miss this adorable bundle.   In addition to the Kangaroo & Co bundle I  used the cake and hat from the Party Puffins stamp set, the sentiment from the Artistically Inked set,  and the scallop edge was cut using the Scalloped Contours die (part of the Color & Contour bundle).  I cut the scallop from the front of the card positioning the die about 3/4" up from the edge.  


The cute little butterflies are also from the Kangaroo & Company stamp set.  I did have to use the Stamparatus to stamp a mirror image of the butterfly and fussy cut it out.  The ribbon is the Pale Papaya & White 1/2" Ribbon.   The DSP is from  the 2021-23  In Color  6" x 6" Assortments.

The Kangaroo & Company card did not take very long to create so I made another card using the In Color Polished Pink and the same layout.


This color just makes me smile!  It is a bright pop of color.  I am  sad that the Snailed It bundle is retiring.  I have used this bundle a lot.  These are snails I love seeing and playing with.  The hello is from the Biggest Wish stamp set.   I am a little obsessed with it.  I send a lot of cards and often it is just to check in with someone so the hello is the perfect sentiment.  


Don't you love those little envelopes?  I covered up the hearts on the envelope with the 2021-23 In Color Jewels (they are back in stock!). The ribbon is the Polished Pink 3/8" Open Weave that comes in all the 2021-23 In Colors.  

Now it is time for you to check out what the talented Joni Metras has created for you.
