Introducing Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2022 In Colors

This is a great time to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator! Not only were we able to download the 2020 Annual Catalog this week, but we have had the joy of hanging out with the new 2020-2022 In Colors. Demonstrators will be able to order select products from the new catalog in May before the catalog goes live to customers in June.  BUT…you have a chance to play with the new colors, too – more on that later.

I’m excited to share the new colors with you today – and I know you are going to LOVE them. Here are Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2022 In Colors:

Stampin Up! 2020-2022 In ColorsAnd here’s a closer look at each of these beauties:

Bumblebee, Stampin Up! 2020-2022 In Color Cinnamon Cider, Stampin Up! 2020-2022 In Color Just Jade, Stampin Up! 2020-2022 In Color Magenta Madness, Stampin Up! 2020-2022 In Color Misty Moonlight, Stampin Up! 2020-2022 In ColorAre you already in love with these colors?! I can’t wait to order my papers and inks and accessories and put these gorgeous colors to use. 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:


We got our first peek at Bumblebee in the recently early-released Ornate Garden Suite. It’s such an earthy yellow with soft, misty tones. As you can see below, Bumblebee is warmer, dustier yellow than Daffodil Delight but isn’t quite as rich as Crushed Curry:

Bumblebee Color Comparisons, Stampin Up!Playing with the warmth of this new yellow, I mixed Bumblebee with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso for a gorgeous combination – I could hug this combination of warm tones.

I love when Stampin’ Up! offers neutral tones in the In Colors – and Cinnamon Cider is a sweet, copper-toned colors that’s going to quickly become a favorite. Here’s how Cinnamon Cider compares with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede:

Cinnamon Cider Color Comparisons, Stampin Up!Gorgeous – right?! I wanted to see how Cinnamon Cider paired with soft colors – and I couldn’t be happier. Here’s how the new brown color pairs with So Saffron and Petal Pink:

While jade typically refers to a bright green, Just Jade has some aqua tones that make it similar to other colors that make it similar to some of our aqua blues – but this is definitely a green. Here’s how this new Just Jade compares with Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay:

Just Jade Color Comparisons, Stampin Up!While there’s a lovely brightness to Just Jade, I paired it with Blushing Bride and Seaside Spray, which softened the colors just a bit. I love a versatile color! Here’s how Just Jade looks with Blushing Bride and Seaside Spray: Stampin Up! Color Inspiration - Blushing Bride, Seaside Spray, Just Jade


If you love vibrant pinks, you are going to go mad for Magenta Madness (see what I did there?). Here’s how this new stunner compares with some other bright pinks – Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo:

Magenta Madness Color Comparisons, Stampin Up!I celebrated the brightness of Magenta Madness by pairing it with two other bright tones. Here’s how Magenta Madness pairs with Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana:

I don’t want to say I already have a favorite, but I’m already crushing on Misty Moonlight. This blue is a perfect mix of rich, bright and soft – Misty Moonlight has it all. Here’s how Misty Moonlight compares with two popular blues – Pacific Point and Night of Navy:

  3. Your color combinations are FANTASTIC. Looking forward to seeing some AMAZING projects with these new In Colors.

  4. Awesome color combos..can’t wait to try them..thanks for sharing!

  5. Agreed–with everything! I am madly in love with these colors this year!May 5th can’t get here soon enough for me!

  6. I like the new colors too. I think the Misty Moonlight is going to be a favorite . Who doesn`t love that name ?

  7. Thanks for the fabulous color pairings. This is always a treat for us to see your artistic mind at work. Every time, I come away with a new appreciation for a combination. It’s gonna be a great (colorful) year !

    • Awww…thanks so much, Linda! I’m so happy you like them. I really loved playing with them for this post. Can’t wait to REALLY play with them when I can order them. ♥

  8. Suzanne Patt Cullen

    I can honestly say that I LOVE all five of the new In Colors!

  9. Thank you for all the color combos! I love the new In Colors and you just showed how wonderful they are going to be to work with! I can’t wait!

    • When new colors are shared, I’m always itching to see how they work with other colors. Happy to share them and glad you like them, Susan! ♥

  10. Thanks for the new colors. Grapefruit Grove was my favorite of the five going out.

  11. Love your parade of colors Brian…they are stunning!

  12. Beth Ann Halvorson

    Loved the chance to see the color comparisons. Thank you!

  13. Good morning Brian, Thanks again for your wonderful color combinations. Have you ever thought of putting together a whole bunch of them and selling as a set. I love your combos, keep all your emails, but it would be wonderful to have a printed set to refer to. Just a thought, but for now – I make copies, copies, copies.

  14. Thanks, Brian, for all the pretty color combinations. I’m loving these new In-Colors. Can’t wait to see how you use them. Enjoy your day!

  15. I actually really like all of the colors and I think they are a wonderful complement to the 2019-2021 shades. I think my favorite would have to be Just Jade; it’s so lush! Thanks for sharing, Brian and thank you for the inspiring color matches.

    • I think they look great with last year’s colors, too, Noelle! So happy to share them (and my thoughts on them). Now I’m just waiting to get my hands on them. 🙂

  16. Jade is so 80s so I won’t be getting that. However, I already adore Bumblebee and Cinnamon.

  17. I have come to realize hobby’s are essential so I might have to “buy it all.” However I do have a clear favorite already – Misty Moonlight. I can’t wait to see the DSP that come out featuring these colors.

  18. HI Brian! Thanks for sharing your creativity and art with us everyday! You and your designs are awesome! My favorite new color would have to be Magenta Madness and I love it paired with Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mango.

  19. Good Morning!!! I love all the colors and very anxious to get creative with them. My favorite, right now, would be Just Jade although anxious to test the Cinnamon Cider since it appears to be a close match to Creamy Caramel.

  20. These are all such beautiful colors, love them all! But I think Magenta Madness is my fave!

  21. I can’t wait for Cinnamon Cider! It reminds me of Baked Brown Sugar we had awhile back and Creamy Caramel…I still have them both! All the colors are beautiful, I wouldn’t expect anything less with Stampin’Up!

  22. I love all of these colors! Do you have a download able of these color combinations?

  23. Wonderful website! ?I’m dying to know how you got the colors so perfect? Did you use a color picker or are there hex codes for Stampin up colors???

    • Thank you so much, Buffy! Stampin’ Up! shares the hex codes with demonstrators, so I was able to replicate the colors perfectly. Love these colors – and hope you do, too! ♥
