All Occasion Cards

Dream and discover In Color! With the all occasion cards, Expressions In Color Paper Pumpkin Kit, you’ll be introduced to Stampin’ Up!’s intriguing collection of In Colors for 2021–2023—and, you’ll find a familiar shade from our 2020–2022 In Color selection.

What are In Colors, anyway? In Colors consist of a limited-edition collection of colors. We come up with a new collection every year, and that collection is only available to purchase for a period of two years! Stampin’ Up!’s In Color collections are truly one-of-a-kind, and this month’s kit provides an approachable—and affordable—way to explore and experiment with our 2020–2022 and 2021–2023 In Color collections.

In this kit’s cute, colorful, and collectible box, you’ll find ink-stained paper pieces, an all-occasion card stamp set, that includes homemade thank you cards and not one, but two Classic Stampin’ Spots! Plus, after you’ve crafted In Color with June’s kit, you can innovate even more ink-credible creations with the Expressions in Ink Suite (item 155459)! Pair the kit’s stamp set and leftover pieces with this collection of coordinating products for continued creative expression.

Gorgeous Gratitude

Put together a gorgeous gratitude project using components exclusively from the Expressions In Color Paper Pumpkin Kit! On the center of a Bumblebee card base, stamp the set’s floral stamp multiple times in Bumblebee ink. Use adhesive dots to adhere an ink-stained die-cut piece in Evening Evergreen onto the center of the card, then surround with sequins.

Cut an Evening Evergreen ink-stained piece down to a small rectangle that’s a little larger than one of the kit’s hexagon-shaped sentiment labels. Add both Bumblebee and Evening Evergreen ink to the set’s ink blot stamp, then stamp onto the back of the Evening Evergreen ink-stained piece. Repeat to create ink-stained imagery. Wrap a piece of Evening Evergreen thread around the rectangle, tie a bow, then adhere to the card front with dimensionals.

To complete the all occasion card, stamp the set’s floral stamp onto a hexagon-shaped sentiment label in Bumblebee ink. Stamp the “thanks” sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink, then use dimensionals to adhere to the center of the ribbon-wrapped rectangle. Stamp the set’s ink blot stamp onto one of the smallest sentiment labels in Bumblebee ink, stamp the “many” sentiment twice in Evening Evergreen ink, cut off the right banner edge to create a straight edge, then adhere to the card front with dimensionals.

Whimsical Birthday Wishes

Wish a whimsical, handmade “happy birthday” with this pretty pastel project! Cut a card base from Pale Papaya Cardstock, then a slightly smaller card front from cardstock in the same shade. Using your choice of rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles Dies, pair your pick with Basic White Cardstock. On that piece, stamp the included set’s ink blot stamp multiple times in Pale Papaya ink, then stamp the set’s floral stamp in Calypso Coral ink onto each ink blot. Adhere off-center to the card front with liquid glue, leaving the top left corner unglued. Slip the unglued corner through two hexagon-shaped hoops from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack, then lock them—and the corner—in place with liquid glue.

On one of the kit’s sentiment labels, stamp the “happy birthday” sentiment from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set with the kit’s Evening Evergreen Classic Stampin’ Spot. Cut a piece of Pool Party Sheer Ribbon a little longer than the sentiment label, then use Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends to change the sheer ribbon’s shade. Adhere to the card front with liquid glue, then adhere the sentiment label with dimensionals. Finish off the card front with some of the kit’s sequins, then adhere the full card front to the card base with dimensionals!

Supplies: Artistically Inked Cling Stamp Set, Expressions In Color Photopolymer Stamp Set (included); Basic White and Pale Papaya Cardstock; Calypso Coral and Pale Papaya Classic Stampin’ Pads; Evening Evergreen Classic Stampin’ Spot (included); Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack; Pool Party 3/8" Sheer Ribbon; Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack; sequins (included); dimensionals (included); Stitched Rectangles Dies

Blooming Ombre Bag

Fill a beautiful, flowering bag with trinkets and treats! On a Fresh Freesia Ombre Gift Bag, stamp the ink blot image from the kit’s stamp set on the bottom right corner in Fresh Freesia ink. Set aside. Then, use the detailed floral die from the Artistic Dies to cut the design from Basic White Cardstock. Once cut, use liquid glue to adhere the design to one of the kit’s Fresh Freesia and Polished Pink ink-stained card bases. Use Paper Snips to cut around the design, then adhere the element to the bottom right corner of the gift bag.

Apply Evening Evergreen ink to a Blending Brush, then blend the ink onto one of the kit’s vellum die-cut sentiments. Adhere to the gift bag with dimensionals. On one of the kit’s small die-cut sentiment labels, stamp the kit’s “you are” sentiment in Fresh Freesia ink. (To do this, add ink only to the “you” on the stamp.) Cut the sentiment label down to a smaller size, then adhere to the bag with liquid glue. Complete your creation with sequins from the kit for a fabulous finish!
