It's almost time for the debut of the new Stampin' Up! 2014-2015 Annual Catalog. Yippee! Does anyone remember the tv commercial (Mervyn's, I think) with the lady standing outside the store doors chanting "open, open, open"?
That is how I feel every time the new catalog comes around. Okay, actually, that is how I feel before our demonstrator sneak peeks, preorders, and every seasonal catalog too! I'm pretty much in a constant state of excited anticipation. Don't ask about the greeting my UPS guy gets. It's a tad embarrassing.
Today's card is a fun sampler of the new 2014-2016 In Colors. Stampin' Up! introduces five trendy "in" colors each year that you'll notice are popular in fashion, home decor and, well, pretty much everywhere else. A full line of coordinating In Color products will be available on June 2, including ink, cardstock, markers, patterned paper, ribbon, and embellishments.
Using the Vivid Vases stamp, I stamped (and fussy cut) a vase from each of the five new colors of cardstock. From left to right are: Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Bliss. The flowers were colored using the new In Color Stampin' Write Markers.
A little subtle paper-piercing in the upper corners adds texture to this clean and simple design, along with the Blackberry Bliss scallop border (punch).
For a colorful finishing touch, I added Tangelo Twist Stitched Satin Ribbon. Swoon! This soft satin ribbon is gorgeous and hopefully you can see the tone-on-tone stitched lines. This ribbon will be available in all the new In Colors.
The new In Color products, along with lots of other new products, will be available on June 2. Please note that online ordering will not be available on June 2 from midnight to noon (Mountain), while Stampin' Up! updates the system with all the new products.
Favorite new In Color? It was love at first sight for Blackberry Bliss! I also like Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey, but I really believe that all the colors will get lots of use from me. Your turn - what is your favorite new In Color or are you still on the fence?
