Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua, TX.
Today, I’d like to share with you information regarding Stampin’ Up’s new 2021-2023 In Color Collection.
William Shakespeare once wrote “parting is such sweet sorrow” for Romeo and Juliet and in Stampin’ Up world, that is so true. This year we will say our farewells to Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray, Purple Posy and Rococo Rose.
In that sorrow, we’re excited to proudly say *HELLO* to our new 2021-2023 In Colors:
Now that we officially know what the new In Colors are, I’d like to just say a few words about each color.
With the sadness comes excitement to see that Stampin’ Up has brought in a new purple!! Fresh Freesia is a shade in between Purple Posy and Highland Heather. Stampin’ Up did not disappoint me with this decision!!
I’m not huge on pinks because of course I have no girls however; I actually REALLY like the new Polished Pink. The other part of that is that we already have SO many different pinks in the palette. I agree none like this one. It’s a lovely color and I’m looking forward to using it over the next couple of years.
I’m also excited to see Pale Papaya – a beautiful, soft, stunning shade of orange! Unlike our pink department, our orange palette was definitely lacking and it’s a breath of fresh air to see a orange shade!!
Speaking of loving – Soft Succulent indeed – This one is going to go perfectly with our Succulents Bundle. Sneaky little Sara put a new In Color right under our noses since January and we didn’t even know it. Just kidding Sara – you know we all loves you!!
Evening Evergreen – WOW!! This is an incredible color and not just for Christmas!! I’m REALLY looking forward to all of the combinations that I’ve seen so far and I look forward to sharing with my readers and family and friends soon.
For those who may not be familiar with Stampin’ Up’s In Color Collections, each year Stampin’ Up introduces us to five brand new colors separate from our Core Color Collection. These colors are designed to not only to be used together but to also be combined with other colors within our Core Color Collection. Each new set of In Colors stays with us for two years and retire when the two year period is up.
There are two sets of In Colors. In 2020, we were introduced to Magenta Madness, Just Jade, Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider. These colors will not retire until 2022. When they retire, Stampin’ Up will bring in five new In Colors to replace them.
I did say farewell and not “goodbye.” There’s ALWAYS a chance that Stampin’ Up could bring back any of our retired colors in the future so it’s always a good idea to hang onto those Retired In Colors because you never can tell when they could make a comeback!!
Of the colors that are retiring this year, I think that both Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray both have very good chances of returning one day. If Stampin’ Up gave me a choice between Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray though – I’m sorry – my bias house full of men says that #stampinup should #bringbackseasidespray.
Along with new Stamp Pads and of course refill bottles, Stampin’ Up releases a complete collection of Cardstock, Designer Series Papers, Ribbons, Embellishments, Stampin’ Write Markers and Stampin’ Blend Markers to coordinate with each In Color.
The full line of the In Color Collection is available right now to Demonstrators and will be available to Customers on May 4th. The full line of the In Color Collection is available to get in a Starter Kit if you’d like to sign up to be a Demonstrator. Kits are $126.00 worth of product of your choice for $99.00, free shipping and 20% savings on all future orders.
In coming weeks, I will begin to share projects using these new In Colors and showing them in different color combinations. For those who follow me on Facebook, I went live yesterday and showed several combinations of color that I think are fabulous. If you’re not part of my Facebook yet and missed it but would like to watch the replay, the link to my video is:
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope that you’ve enjoyed seeing the new 2021-2023 In Colors, are as excited as we are about them and will join me again for another edition.
Until next time – Happy Stampin’ Everyone!
