Meet the new kids on the block . . . the stamping block that is.  Stampin' Up! will be adding 5 new In Colors when they launch the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog on July 1.  How do you like the sound of Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder?

These fresh and hip colors will be available in addition to current In Colors Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Concord Crush, for a total of 10 In Colors.  I have created simple cards below to illustrate how the new colors compare to existing Stampin' Up! colors. I promise you will see much more of these colors along with plenty of sneak peeks of new stamps and accessories to get you as excited as I am about the new products!

  1. This is a fabulous idea….I think I’ll “borrow” this for my club girls!

  2. pretty pretty….I like the new ones. Thanks for sharing, Becky

  3. Drooling over Pool Party!~!! Love Wisteria Wonder too!

  4. Hi Loni: It was fun to put together. Thanks. I only have some of the retired colors to compare directly to. Roughly (and from memory)here are some similar colors “from the past.” Lucky Limeade (Kiwi Kiss), Calypso Coral (Cameo Coral), Island Indigo (Taken by Teal), Pool Party (Cool Carribean or Soft Sky), Wisteria Wonder (Almost Amethyst). Hugs, M

  5. This is fabulous…shared with my downline and customers! I appreciate that you took the time to share with us. Are any of the new in-colors close to past year’s colors?

  6. Thank you for sharing!

  7. Thank you for sharing!

  8. Thanks for presenting the new colors in a comparison format. It really helps. And also for the assurance about the 12×12 paper. I really love their 12×12 smooth for scrapbooking backgrounds.

  9. Holly AKA KopyKat

    Thanks for the peek at the new colors with their family colors, I love how you showed these off and some of those colors are so timely in popularity! whooo hooo.

  10. Awesome Mary! Just what I needed to see. Nobody does color better than SU!

  11. Just had to leave a comment to say that I LOVE these little cards as a way to present the new In Colors! You’ve inspired me to create something similar! Thanks for the inspiration and your fresh designs!

  12. what a fabulous and creative way to showcase the new colors and how they compliment our existing colors!!! TFS…

  13. Thanks so much Mary! I was a little disappointed with the new colors except for the Wisteria. Now after seeing the shade differences here, I am excited to see them in person. You are such an asset to Stampin’ Up. I love all that you do!

  14. Chris R. from Iowa

    Love how you made the cards for us! So fun! All the colors seem like good names except for Lucky Limeade – this just does not fit with any limeades I have ever had! Oh well, that is just my thinking! Love the comparisons though! Thanks Mary!

  15. Such a pretty way of showing the new colors Mary. Guess it’s kind of enabling too. LOL Thank you, looks like I will be visiting my SU demo sooner than expected. :)Peggy

    Mary, you are absolutely amazing! Thanks for such a creative intro to the new In Colors! I’ve made my list and am nearly ready for placing my preview order, but to see how you have matched up the new colors has really boosted my enthusiasm so I can’t wait to play with them! You are such a gift to us out here! We love ya!

  17. Thank you for this post. We have to wait another few months in the UK – but it is great to see what is coming. This is a great way of showing the new colors. Thanks again. X

  18. Fingers crossed that Stampin’ Up! will offer a “complete Color Coach” with the new In Colors.

  19. I am so excited about these new in-colours. I wasn’t fond of the last group. Your reveal is beautifully done. Not only the design of your cards, but the photoshoped word. TFS.

  20. Do you know if we’ll be able to buy colour coach cards with the new in colours?

    Thanks! LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog!

  21. What a great display to introduce the new colors! Looking forward to wonderful ways of using them ;o)

  22. Mary
    Very nice display of the beautiful new colors, thanks for sharing, can’t wait to see what lovely cards you will create with these “cool” names.

  23. Thanks for your comments, gang! Everyone’s computer is going to show these colors a little differently. I think the colors are even more spectacular in “real life.” They coordinate incredibly well with the existing In Colors (Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, etc.), too. Certain combinations have a modern (almost retro)feel but can quickly adapt for holiday (think Lucky Limeade with Poppy Parade for Christmas)!

    I’m working on a birthday card for tomorrow to show them mixed together! Stay Tuned!

  24. Love Pool Party and Wisteria wonder!!

  25. What a great way to show the new colors. Your style is always so clean and neat.

    Thanks for sharing.


  26. Love how you show off the new colors!
