Color Combinations with Stampin’ Up!’s 2019-2021 In Colors

I love how Stampin’ Up! staggers the In Color collections. Every year a new set of five trendy colors is introduced that will stick around for two years. That means that one collection is rolling off each year, and one collection is being added each year. Over the past several weeks, I’ve shared a look back at the retiring 2017-2019 In Colors (with projects and color combinations for each). If you missed those posts, you can see them here:

We’ve had a lot of fun with these colors, but I’m also excited to welcome a new batch of colors. Today I’m going to share some color combination suggestions for each of these colors.

I’m always thrilled with Stampin’ Up! releases a new set of In Colors. We often look at those five colors as a collection, so it’s hard to (initially) see the new colors with other colors in our color collections. To help you see these colors in a new light, I’ve created some fun color combinations for each. I hope these help you to see the beauty in these new colors and give you inspiration for how these colors can be showcased.

Here’s a look at all five of the 2019-2020 In Colors, together as a collection:

    They are much prettier in the actual products . The rose is a lovely color and that blue and lavender are delightful. Love the new In Color DSP. Thank you for creating some fun go togethers .

    Brian, as always, I love all the color combos you share! I read your blog on my phone in the early morning and take screenshots of them. That way I always have them close at hand!

  6. I know my new favorite in the Purples is Purple Posy, I also like the Terracotta Tile a lot.
    Thank you for the awesome color combinations, they are always so helpful for me, I have absolutely no eye for combining colors so these are always a fabulous help.
