Thanks for visiting my blog today! This post is all about the five beautiful new In Colors that were introduced in our 2020 annual catalogue (also featured in my recent video). As you know, Stampin’ Up! introduces a collection of five fabulous on-trend colours each year, and those colours will be with us for two years. Want to know how on-trend this year’s colours are? Well, here’s a pair of running shoes I ordered online a couple of months ago, with three of the new In Colour inkpads next to them:
So we have one collection of In Colors that were introduced last June, and those will be with us for another year; and this new collection of colours that will be with us for the next two years. As shown in the photo below, the five new colours are (left-right): Misty Moonlight, Magenta Madness, Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider, and in the front row, Bumblebee.
You can find these colours and the assorted product collections on page 143-144 of your annual catalogue.
The above notecards are the first project I made with the new colours and I learned some things along the way. These cards feature the In Color cardstock and the In Color 6×6 DSP stack. I always buy that stack of paper because it’s a great way to show off the new colours; you get 4 each of 2 double-sided designs for a total of 40 sheets. But I noticed right away that when you layer the DSP on top of the cardstock, it disappears completely; there’s not enough white on the DSP to create contrast. So I recommend putting a layer of white in between your DSP and cardstock when you are making these monochromatic cards.
Did you notice that The Flowers for Every Season suite features all the new In Colors? What a terrific product – now, you can enjoy all the gorgeous new colours in paper that features beautiful floral designs, not only with monochromatic papers as with the In Color DSP stack. In addition to the Flowers for Every Season DSP, you can also get the co-ordinating Memories and More card pack. This includes a terrific collection of double-sided cards in two sizes and some sticker sheets for embellishing, and all of it can be used for either scrapbooking or cardmaking. These cards come together so quickly, and you don’t even need ink for some of them! I’ve used some of the included sticker embellishments to add dimension, and the Forever Gold specialty paper as well.
The below set of cards shows off all the different patterns on the 6×6 In Color DSP stack for a quick and easy collection of cards. These large words here are stickers from the Memories and More card pack, and I used my Triple Banner punch to create these banners. The only ink on these cards is where I’ve stamped one word on each of them, in black ink.
Another great way to show off the colours even if you don’t have the inkpads is with white embossing on coloured cardstock. I used the large flower stamp from Ornate Style to create these cards, and as a bonus – now you don’t have to colour in this image! Look at how striking these cards are. The DSP on the side is from the Flowers for Every Season DSP stack.
So, collections of monochromatic cards are great for showing off the new colours… but you can also show all the colours in one card.
And of course, you can use these colours for products other than cards! Samplers, chocolate sleeves, bookmarks, even calendar/post-it holders … I love getting super creative with these products!
Z-fold cards are a great way to show off our DSP and they are so simple to make, so I whipped up a set of these using a stamp from So Sentimental and the Layering Squares dies. Notice again I’ve got the white cardstock in behind the DSP so that it will pop, and I also used my sponge dauber on both the white layer and the scalloped layer here.
And finally my last project is this cute collection of 3×3” cards. Perfect hostess gift!
Our gorgeous new colours can be used with our existing colours, too. Here are some hints on how to do that:
