Introducing Three New 2017-2019 In Colors

This is a great time to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator!  Not only will many of us see the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog this weekend at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage events, but we’ll also go home with some great, new product.  All demonstrators will be able to order select products from the new catalog in May before the catalog goes live to customer in June.  What fun!

As part of a new product special release that is now live for demonstrators and will be available to customers in May, demonstrators have been able to order from a new suite – Eastern Palace – and you’ll soon see great projects with this product.  As part of this launch, we’re able to order three of the new 2017-2019 In Colors. You know how much I adore working with color, so you can imagine how excited I was to receive these yesterday (in my overnighted order) and how thrilled I am to share these with you today.

Here are three of Stampin’ Up!’s new colors:

Fresh Fig, Stampin' Up! 2017-2019 In Color,

Lemon Lime Twist, Stampin' Up! 2017-2019 In Color,

Tranquil Tide, Stampin' Up! 2017-2019 In Color,

The best way to show you how these colors fit into our current color families is to show you how they look right next to colors we already know.  Here are my thoughts on each of these amazing, new colors and a comparison to color already in our color families:


Fresh Fig is such a refreshing shade of purple.  It’s brighter than Perfect Plum and a bit more muted than Rich Razzleberry.  I have a feeling Fresh Fig is going to be very popular – it’s a beautifully sophisticated color that will fit perfectly in a variety of projects.  Here’s a look at Fresh Fig with Perfect Plum and Rich Razzleberry:

Lemon Lime Twist is the most out-of-the-ordinary color of the three new In Colors we’ve already seen.  I love the bright, vibrant shade that falls somewhere between yellow and green (as the name indicates).  We have NOTHING like it.  You might try to compare it to Lucky Limeade, which was a yellower Old Olive, but this is much brighter and is back with even more yellow.  Daffodil Delight is perfect for a lemon, and Pear Pizzazz is perfect for a lime.  Lemon Lime Twist is a wonderful mix of the two.  Here’s a look at Lemon Lime Twist with Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz:

I love the aqua blues in Stampin’ Up!’s color families – beautiful balances between blue and green.  Bermuda Bay is the brightest aqua, and Island Indigo is the richest.  Tranquil Tide is the perfect in-between aqua with a little more green than Island Indigo and a little less blue than Bermuda Bay.  I am certain I’ll be using this color A LOT over the next two years.  🙂  Here’s a look at Tranquil Tide with Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo:

If you are a demonstrator, you can order the Classic Stampin’ Pads for these new colors today (if you haven’t already ordered them).  If you are a customer, these new ink pads will be available on May 1.  🙂  They are all included in the new Eastern Palace suite of products that will also be available on May 1.

What do you think of the new colors?  I hope you love them as much as I do.  I can’t wait to roll my sleeves up and start creating with these new, amazing colors!

Thanks for stopping by today!

    Thanks Brian for your color comparison charts. They are the best! When I thought of fig I thought it would have a touch of brown to it but that’s ok it looks prettier than I imagined it. I will be looking forward to seeing what you masterpieces you make with the new colors! Hope all those storms and tornadoes didn’t come close to you.

  7. Thanks for the visual of the new colors. I can’t wait to see the remaining new In-Colors and to see what creations you will bring us.

  9. Brian I appreciate the comparison charts, so far lemon-Lime Twist is my favorite.

  10. Oh WOW!! love this new shades, right away the Lemon Lime Twist jumped at me!!!
    Thank you for the comparisons Brian, they help a lot to see the subtle differences.

  11. Hi Brian:

    First of all thank you for the preview. The second I saw Lemon Lime Twist I was in love. It will be fun to play with it to find a blue that compliments it. Also, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz are often my “go to” colors so now they will have a friend they can play with. Your color combo charts are THE best and oh so helpful to me. Thank you again.

  12. I like the comparisons. My ink should be in today. Can’t wait to have some fun! Thanks for the inspiration.

  13. I AM IN LOVE!!!!!!!! I really like how you paired them with the current colors!

  14. Love the new colors ?

  15. You just never know how much you will like the new colors until you actually use them . I think seeing them in comparison is fun .
    Thank you !

  16. Brian, I am always so impressed by your willingness to share with all of us, even if we are not on your team. Good insight on the new INColors. I am a demonstrator under Laura Barto. Thanks again!!!

  17. Wow! I really didn’t think I would like these colours when I saw them on their own. But when I saw them how well they blended with our existing colours I just love them. Thank you so much for posting this. Much appreciated. ( Now I’m going to sign up for your newsletter)

  18. Yay, I am so glad I got to see these and how they compare to the other colors! Thanks for the post Brian!

  19. I am in love with all 3 new colors. My Eastern Bundle should arrive tomorrow or Monday. Can’t wait to play. Thanks for showing us your color comparisons. They’re always so “spot on” (get it?)?

  20. Ooooooh , I love it thanks my friend , I’m here in Savannah , gust got here at 6pm , wooohoooo, can’t wait to see my lovely friends
    Love and hugs

  21. Thanks Brian. This is great. How does Tranquil Tide compare with Emerald Envy? Are they close?

  22. Thank you for your color comparisons! I’m still trying to find my style/passion in papercrafting, but you’re wooing me over to the color-full side ;-).

  23. Thank you for the comparison. Is Tranquil Teal anything like Lost Lagoon?

  24. Thank you for showing us how the new colors blend with the old ones. It is so helpful.

  25. My first impression of tranquil tide was “meh”. BUT, when I saw it in person at San Diego on-stage, I immediately got excited. It is NOT like any previous color we have had. I love all the new colors!
