|New Stampin' Up! 2012-2014 In Color Collection: (l-r) Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, |
Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals.
With the release of the new Stampin' Up! 2012-2013 Annual Catalog last Friday, a new palette of colors were introduced as the 2012-2014 In Color Collection. Each year, Stampin' Up! reveals a new collection of five trendy, fresh colors in conjunction with their four core color collections. The In Color Collections have a lifespan of two years, with a new collection being introduced each year allowing for a continuous infusion of fresh color inspiration.
The five new 2012-2014 In Colors are: Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, and Primrose Petals. Coordinating products in this new color collection include Classic Stampin' Pads & Ink Refills, card stock, Stampin' Write Markers, Designer Series Paper Stacks, Dahlia Flower Adornments, and Stitched Satin Ribbon.
In addition, many of the new patterned paper collections and Simply Scrappin' Kits feature one or more of the new In Colors as well. The new palette of colors fall right in line with the continued vintage trend in paper crafting.
Speaking of vintage . . . notice the frame behind the flower image? It's one of the new die-cut accent shapes included in the Apothecary Accents Framelits Collection. While these Framelits do coordinate with the new Layered Labels Stamp Set, they can, of course, be used on their own in a variety of ways. The piece I used for today's card was cut in half and spread out before being layered behind the flower.
My favorite new In Color?
So far it's Midnight Muse - a gorgeous deep indigo blue - which happens to be one of the trendiest fashion colors right now too! Of course as I start creating and experimenting with each of the new In Colors, I usually find that one of the other colors winds up on my craft table more and more often. To be continued . . .
