Monday Memories! 2018-2020 In Colours & Varied Vases

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well. I am doing a throwback today. I am sharing the first project I did with the 2018-2020 In Colours. I have been busy making 2019-2021 In Colour swatches to go out with the new catalogue to all my customers and it got me thinking about when I was using last years In Colours for the first time.

Measurements and Materials

  • Each card has a standard card base made from Extra Thick Whisper White
  • Half a sheet of A4 cut in half and scored in half
  • Mat in the in colour card stock
  • I then gutted this but cutting out some vases, a round tab for my sponges and a Every Day label
  • Mat in Whisper White 
  • I stamped the Scallop edge on the Whisper White Mat in Memento Ink
  • Filled in in with the In Colour I was using
  • Stamped 3 of the flower stems in Memento above this 'shelf'
  • Filled in in with the In Colour I was using
  • I stamped the vases in the in colour onto Whisper White and punched out
  • I then varied the vases on the card 
  • Some were tone on tone, some colour on Whisper White and some just an outline which I water coloured to look like water
  • I added a sentiment under the 'shelf'


Template for punching vases


  • To help with stamping and punching out the vases I created a template
  • I punched the vases out of cradstock
  • I trimmed this down to make a template
  • I lined this up with the stamps so I could position them on my acrylic block
  • I was then able to stamp all 3 vases and punch out easily with little cardstock wastage
  • I now keep the template in the stamp box
