New Stampin’ Up! 2021-2023 In Color Comparison

New Stampin' Up! In Colors 2021 - 2023 Laura Milligan

Today I wanted to do a little comparison of our brand new In Colors!  I think the vote is in that these new colors are a big YES!  Everyone seems to love them!

First up – Fresh Freesia – it’s a beautiful soft purple and if you love purple, you will love this fresh new color!  Much lighter than Highland Heather, and not as pink as Blushing Bride.

Polished Pink is such a pretty pink – not as vibrant as Magenta Madness.  It’s a pink that stands alone when compared with Magenta Madness and Melon Mambo.  I am a pink girl – I have four girls after all, and I am loving this pretty, bright and unique pink!

Next is Evening Evergreen.  Again, this green stands alone –  and introduces a new, rich dark green color- different than all of our other greens.  So pretty! Looking forward to using this color!

Soft Succulent –  when I first saw this soft green color, I wondered how it would compare with Mint Macaron – but when I pulled out a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock to compare, I realized it was very different.   As it’s name implies, it is a pretty soft green.

And last, Pale Papaya.  A yummy color – just like a papaya.  It’s not pink, yellow or orange – it’s papaya!   It stands alone and is one of my favorite new colors.

The other point I wanted to mention about these new In Colors is how beautifully they coordinate with each other! You can mix and match any of them together for a beautiful combo!

Bee Creative Tutorial – Friendly Flamingo You’re Outstanding Card

Friendly Flamingo Card Laura Milligan Id Rather Bee Stampin

I’ll be sharing projects this week featuring the Friendly Flamingo Bundle from page 43 of the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog!



  • Card Base: Basic Black Cardstock- 8 1/2” x 5 1/2” 2 .” x 2 .” layer

  • Card Stock 2: Basic White- 4 .” x 3 .” for stamping

  • DSP: True Love Designer Series Paper- 2 .” x 2 .”

  • DSP: Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper- 5 .” x 4”


  1. Fold the Basic Black card base in half and attach the Love You Always DSP to the card front using Stampin’ SEAL.
  2. Attach the True Love DSP (black and white paper) and the Basic Black cardstock layer together using Stampin’ SEAL. Then, add it to the card front like shown in the photo using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Stamp the floral image on the Basic White piece and die-cut with the Flamingo Dies. Then, punch a tag using the Label Me Lovely Punch with the same Basic White piece.
  4. Color the floral image using your Stampin’ Blends.
  5. Stamp the sentiment using Memento Black Ink on the tag shape. Adhere the sentiment piece behind the floral piece using Stampin’ SEAL. You may need to trim the bottom of the punched shape, so it does not hang out towards the bottom of the floral image.
  6. Then, pop that piece onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Add a bow with mini glue dots using the twine from Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack.
  8. Add 2 Matte Black Dots to the center of the larger flowers. Also, add Wink of Stella to the pink flowers, and you are done!
