The RemARKable In Colors for 2015


Each new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog brings a new In Color collection, and everyone anxiously awaits the reveal of those new colors.  One thing that is often lost in the excitement is the In Color Bundle – a selection of the 5 new ink pads plus an assortment of the new In Color card stock – for the price of the ink pads.

I have my favorites (and some not-so-favorites) this year.  Today’s projects confirmed some of my opinions, but there was a surprise too!

  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Lost Lagoon

Bermuda Bay complements Mint Macaron very well, but it was just too bright a look for this card and I switched to Lost Lagoon.

Can you see the tape?  Just a tiny bit held the word window punched piece to the end of the card stock, allowing me to feed it into the punch again and create that skinny little bit.

One last combination:

  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Soft Suede, So Saffron, Delightful Dijon, Crumb Cake

This combination surprised me – I didn’t expect to like it because I DON’T LIKE DELIGHTFUL DIJON.  I don’t wear that color, I don’t decorate with that color, although I do like Dijon mustard.  That’s as far as it goes.

I couldn’t make this design work with Cucumber Crush.  I’m waiting for Christmas before I try to make friends – that one has me stumped for now.  And as much as I love Tip Top Taupe, it didn’t want to stand alone in this concept either.  It would be a nice accent in place of Crumb Cake, but I chose Crumb Cake.  My projects, my rules.

However, I am SURE some of the other RemARKables have featured Cucumber Crush or Tip Top Taupe or maybe even BOTH of them!  You’ll have to make your way through the tour to find out…but there could be worse things to do, couldn’t there?

Next up is Heather Mathieson!

  2. Looks great! Thanks for the Pinspiration! I don’t like DD either and am learning to work with it, however I love, love, love Tip Top Taupe and it looks fabulous with red and with black even both together!
