Introducing You to Stampin’ Up!’s 2015-2017 In Colors

Stampin’ Up!’s 2015-2017 In Colors arrived at my house yesterday morning, and they are INCREDIBLE!  Please let me say that again – they are INCREDIBLE!

I rushed home at 10:00 am (took an early lunch hour) when I received my alert that the boxes were delivered.

Today’s post is all about these gorgeous In Colors.  You already know how much I love colors, right?  I love how each and every color has a personality of its own.  These five beauties are no different – I love each of them for very different reasons.  If I were to describe them to you over the phone, I might say, “It’s close to [this color]” or “It’s somewhere between [this color] and [that color].”  Rather than TELL you, I’d love to SHOW YOU.

2015-2017 In Colors, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingBelow are some note cards I made with each of the five 2015-2017 In Colors.  I used the new colors as the base for each card and indicated that color in the panels with a little, white accent.  I’ve compared each color with other colors in the current Stampin’ Up! family of colors.

Without any further ado, I’d like to introduce you to your new favorite colors:

My photos aren’t going to fully capture the glory of each of these colors, but they will give you a great idea of how they compare to other colors you know.

  1. You never cease to amaze me! Awesome!

  2. Your color capture is absolutely brilliant! Thank you!

  3. Oh, wow! Great way to show the new colors! Love them all, but I can see myself using a lot of delightful Dijon.

  4. Beautiful way to show the colors. Love, Love, Love the star!!! Thanks for sharing.

  5. I like them too!!!

  6. Love it ! ….I love to play with colors ! I want to see how the new arrivals (Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macron ) compare to my beloved just retired P.Pudding and Strawberry Slush …because I NEVER do away with my colors ! Especially Coastal Cabana ! Love these cards with the Star of the show indicated !
    My box of fun was shipped yesterday !…..YAY !

  7. I love, love, love how you showcased the new In Colors along with their counterparts. You do have an eye for color. As a Stamping’ Up! demonstrator, I am sure I’ll be visiting your site often for color inspiration. And, I like the way you use mats that “pop”. Thank you so much.

  8. Brian, this is such a fantastic way to showcase the new InColors. You’ve created an ombré effect and I think it’s pretty special.

  9. Thanks so much for sharing, Brian!!!! Love YOUR picture and the cards for the comparisons.
    How does the new Mint compare to Lost Lagoon? Hmmmm… I can’t wait to get these beautiful colors!!

    • I LOVE the mint – I expected it to be more green than blue, but I think it’s a blue. It’s a light, light, light shade of Lost Lagoon – I actually have a post prepared to show them together later this week or early next week. Yippee!

  10. Thanks for the side by side comparison. It really shows the differences.

  11. I’m soooo cucumber green with envy
    Brian !!!!
    Lucky !!!!
    Happy stamping my friend !!!!!

  12. I have to agree with everyone Brian. This was a terrific way to introduce these new colors. I especially like the ability to compare them without having to wait until I get them and then do a lot of side by side stamping. You have done all that for me and I thank you. Aloha my friend!

    Oh – loved the photo of you with the new catty! Can’t wait to get one.

  13. wow Brian! Thanks for your creative talents! Love the color comparisons!

  14. Thanks for the comparison cards. Very helpful. Now, if you just had something for patience. I’m gettingpretty excited. ⌛️

  15. LOVE the way you’ve introduced the new colors! Brilliant, as always!

  16. I heart you.

  17. Diane Cavaness

    Brian, what an awesome way to showcase the colors. Thanks!! It seems that they are a lot like the in colors just retired, but I can’t wait to see for myself. Mine come tomorrow.

  18. Mary Ann Huntington

    Beautiful examples. I love how you showed them off. Hope you didn’t get a speeding ticket zooming home to tear into those boxes!

  19. I love the way you presented all of the new colors, my favorite is Cucumber Crush, I just think this shade of green is so vibrant and fresh.

  20. Brian, you always think of the best ways for us to do comparisons. Without yet seeing these in person (my order arrives tomorrow), I was beginning to think that Watermelon Wonder might be close to Strawberry Slush; and Tip Top Taupe might be close to Crumb Cake, etc etc. But NONE of thee new colors are close to their neighbors at all. Great job putting it in perspective!

  21. Oh, you big tease! Showing us those boxes and the hint of what’s in the open box! I cannot wait to see the new catalog. Those colors are REALLY nice and I LOVE (double underline) the way you showcased them. I am so in love with Hello Honey and the new colors will work so nice with it. Thank you!

  22. Great comparisons on the cards. Thanks for sharing! Love your photo with the new catalog! Just a bit of a ham, huh?

  24. Hey Brian – great mono tones to use together – you have a great eye for color combination – loved them.

  25. I’m excited about the new colors . Can’t wait to see the book. It is like the old Christmas cat. as a child we used to look sooo forward to. I’ve become a real follower pretty regular. Will always keep you in mind if I can’t get to supplies. Thank you for the enthusiastic way you present the new colors
