This is a great time to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator! Not only were many of us able to see the 2019 Annual Catalog this weekend at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage events, but we were also able to order some great, new products from the incredible, new book – including the 2019-2021 In Colors. 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!
I always love to see the new colors and start to play around with them – and I’m excited to share them with you today. Here are Stampin’ Up!’s 2019-2021 In Colors:
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. It might also help to show how they work with other colors you know and love. Here are my thoughts on each of these amazing, new colors and some comparisons to colors already in our color families:
Rococo Rose overflows with the elegance and sophistication you’d expect from a mature mauve. It’s a dusty pink with rich, soothing tones that’s sure to be a great addition to the pinks and reds we already have. As you can see below, Rococo Rose is richer than Blushing Bride (and has some of the same dusty qualities) but isn’t quite as bright as Flirty Flamingo:
At first sight, you are going to say that Pretty Peacock is “just” the reincarnation of Tranquil Tide (I did the same), but it’s not exactly the same and has SO much to offer. We are going to LOVE working with this rich, aqua color. Here’s how Pretty Peacock compares with Bermuda Bay and Tranquil Tide:
It’s even darker than Island Indigo, making it a regal color that’s sure to be the adult in the room. Because Pretty Peacock makes such a rich statement, I thought it would be fun to combine it with the softness of Grapefruit Grove and brightness of Coastal Cabana:
If you love purples (and I know you do), then you are certainly going to want to stock up on some Purple Posy inks and papers. It’s such a soft, sweet shade of purple. We thought Highland Heather was THAT color when it was released in 2018, but Purple Posy is even softer. Here’s how Purple Posy looks next to Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape:
With a tone that light, you know it’s going to pair wonderfully with bright or neutral tones. So…why not see how it looks with both? Here’s how Purple Posy looks with Flirty Flamingo and Night of Navy:
Maybe I’m still hesitant to initially believe the uniqueness of new In Colors, but they are all so special. When I first saw Seaside Spray, I was convinced that it was a knockoff of Balmy Blue, but it’s not really that close at all. It has more blue than Pool Party and more purple than Balmy Blue. It’s a lovely, soft tone that will be perfect for watercolored skies or cards for a baby boy.
This year’s Pantone Color of the Year is Living Coral, a vibrant and gorgeous rusty orange. Although Terracotta Tile was likely selected by Stampin’ Up! sometime last year, it’s right in that ballpark for today’s trends. Here’s a look at Terracotta Tile and how it compares with Calypso Coral and Cajun Craze:
Isn’t that a stunning color? It’s so soft with such gorgeous, neutral tones. Playing with the softness of the color, I combined Terracotta Tile with Mint Macaron and So Saffron for an over-the-top combination of sweet colors:
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!
