I am having such a great time playing with all of my pre-order items. Today, I want to introduce you to the new 2014-2016 In Colors: Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon, and Blackberry Bliss. Aren’t they just yummy! At first when I saw them I noticed how similar some of them are to existing colors from Stampin’ Up!, but as I work with them more, I realize that each has its own unique characteristics. Although some of the differences are subtle, they are important and lead to a more complete palette of color choices. So, without further ado, here are your new In Colors!
For each card in this set, I paired the In Color with two other existing colors for my ombre background. I stamped the In Color with the chevron design from the Work of Art stamp set (available in June) so it would be easy to identify which one is the new color. I also used the In Colors for the card base and tag design. To finish things off, I added the beautiful new 3/8″ stitched satin ribbon to the top of the tag. I love this ribbon! It is so pretty, with a little bit of texture for a special added detail.
Background Colors (bottom to top): Tangerine Tango, Tangelo Twist (In Color), Pumpkin Pie
Crushed Curry, Hello Honey, Daffodil Delight
Mossy Meadow, Always Artichoke, Garden Green
Lost Lagoon, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party
Blackberry Bliss, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum
To add a little bling to my cards, I finished off each tag with some rhinestones that I colored with the new Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. Then I stamped the chevron design on the inside of the card to tie everything together.
I know that when you are able to get your hands on these great new In Colors you will fall in love with them too. I adore the deep, rich purple of Blackberry Bliss and the calming effects of Lost Lagoon. Mossy Meadow adds a nice new shade to the green color family offered by Stampin’ Up! It has a little more lushness than Always Artichoke, but isn’t as vibrant as Garden Green. Tangelo Twist provides a bit of a rusty undertone to the orange color family, while hello honey has some greenish undertones that remind me of dijon mustard.
I hope you have enjoyed getting to know each of these new In Colors today.
