Retiring In Colors and Blends Coordination

As I’m preparing for our 207-2019 In Colors to retire this year, I’m enjoying all the Tranquil Tide color I can!  I hope they bring this one back, it truly is the perfect blue green!

The 5 In colors going away are Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist.  They work together so nicely but that Tranquil Tide will be hard to replace for me.

The Retiring stamps/accessories list should be out around April 15th so be SURE to get those ink refills if you have the pads
BEFORE then as they tend to sell out quickly!
They are all 3.75 each.

Berry Burst ink refill #144089
Powder Pink ink refill #144090
Lemon Lime Twist ink refill #144092
Tranquil Tide ink refill #144091
Fresh Fig ink refill #144088

I’ll post the other retiring In Colors at the
bottom of this post along with a bundle deal for you!

I was making several of these cards using just those In Colors
together.  Adding the 6×6 In Color paper stack is easy coordination and makes quick and easy cards.  I used a flower set called All That You Are, in the Stampin’ Up Occasions catalog. I colored the flowers with our Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  Even though we don’t have those exact named colors in the alcohol markers, here is how I coordinated them:

This light pink was the hardest to match but once I blended them together, it was pretty good!  I love that our alcohol markers have the 2 shades so they are more than just their given name.

So back to the Retiring Colors…..
I have a bundle going while all these are still available.  If you own these 5 In Colors, you may need the ink refills and some of the coordinating accessories before they go.
They MAY go on sale for the retiring list, I’m not sure so I’m adding a bundle now of my staples to have:
