Old SU In-Colors and Vases in Terracotta

I have been trying to decide whether to add to my cardstock stash and add refills for the Stampin' Up 2019-2021 In Colors before they retire. I haven't used them much and I'm not sure why.  So I pulled them out to play before making a decision.

03.05.21 Varied Vases

I got Varied Vases when it was retiring.  I don't why I do that. I'm scared I'll regret not having a product - but then there's wonderful new stuff and I never use the old stuff.  So with that very long story - that's how my card came about!!  I used Terracotta for the pots and Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray for the flowers - then I couldn't decide on the center flowers so I decided to make them leaves!  I used Pretty Peacock as a table.

This started out as my card for Freshly Made Sketches but I decided the three rectangles on the sketch just weren't obvious enough - and I had a different idea which I posted yesterday. But a shout out to the sketch for the inspiration.

Sadly, still no decision on whether I'm getting more cardstock or ink refills. 


Stamps: Stampin' Up Varied Vases

Dies: Stampin' Up Rectangle Stitched Framelits, Vase Builder Punch

Ink: Stampin' Up Terracotta Tile, Rococo Rose, Pear Pizzazz, Seaside Spray, Pretty Peacok

Other: Stampin' Up Painted Texture Embossing Folder, 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots, Natural Chevron Ribbon (very old)


  1. Great use of the colors, Kim, this is wonderful!

  2. Very pretty card, Kim. It's a nice color combination. Enjoy your day!

  3. I am the same way, Kim. I never go back and use the old stuff. In fact I am selling most of the retired SU I have on ebay now. I was demonstrator and collected so much. It all sells quite well on ebay and now I can buy more. It's an addiction!


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my card! I do get spam comments so your comment will be held until I read it and release it!
