Saying “Bravo!” to the New In Colors

Stampin up stamp it stamping pretty demonstrator blog card ideas catalog free bravo set

I arrived back home last evening from my cruise and was welcomed by a box of Stampin’ Up! “sneak peek” products that I get to dazzle you with until the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog begins on June 2.


Today’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO345) couldn’t be a more fitting way to show off a sneak peek of the five new 2014-2016 In Colors.  TOMORROW I’ll expand the discussion with a comparison of the new In Colors to other members of the Stampin’ Up! color collection.


  • The new In Colors represented as circles from top to bottom are Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey Mossy Meadow and Lost Lagoon.

  • The final In Color is represented by the 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon in Tangelo Twist (very cool tone on tone effect).  The ribbon will be available in all the new In Colors on June 2.
  • “Bravo!” in that sumptuous font is from a new Photopolymer stamp set, loaded with a bold variety of sentiments, aptly called “Bravo!”  It’s inked and stamped in Blackberry Bliss.

    What a wonderful way to display the new In Colors…..!!!! Blackberry Bliss is my new most favorite…but also loving the Lost Lagoon blue!

  2. Mary Beth Krakowski

    I think that I am really going off base with my choice this year. I think that Hello Honey is my favorite starting out this year. It will be interesting to see how my thoughts change over the year.

  3. I like greens and blues, so Mossy Meadow and Lost Lagoon are my favorites.

  4. Like you Blackberry Bliss and Lost Lagoon. I think Lost Lagoon might be my ultimate favourite, above and beyond the 15 packages of Cool Carribean from years gone by.

  5. Hello, Honey is much more golden and less green than Summer Starfruit. I’m going to do a comparison with other SU colors on tomorrow’s post. Hoping that will be helpful! M

  6. I love your new card. It will be great as a masculine card. I really liked the look of Tangelo Twist. I am looking forward to receiving the new colors.

  7. I think it’s a no-brainer that everyone will like Lost Lagoon and Blackberry Bliss, but I’m finding I LOVE Hello Honey. Can’t wait to play with the others, too.

  8. I love all of them! How does the hello honey compare to last years summer star fruit? And I love the lost lagoon- it reminds me of the old in color blue bayou.

  9. I am in ‘LIKE’ with Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow! Just placed my order and can’t wait to play with these and all the other toys!

  10. Yep, you picked my two faves….Blackberry Bliss and Lost Lagoon. Looking forward to actually seeing them in person. June 2 can’t get here soon enough!

  11. Loving Mossy Meadow, maybe combined with Bashful Bride. What about adding Blackberry Bliss? Haven’t actually seen the colors in person, but that might be a combination I’d like to try.

    Welcome Back!

  12. I’m thinking Lost Lagoon…because I seem to be using blues allot lately…or maybe…Blackberry Bliss…that just sounds yummy!

  13. I love the mossy meadow. I miss hunter green and I think this may be the replacement for me.

  14. I LOVE the Tangelo Twist and will definitely be buying a pack of that color paper.

  15. I’m happy about Mossy Meadow. And I’m due for a restock on paper, etc.

  16. I love the color combination of your card. Enjoy your box of goodies!

  17. I instantly fell in love with blackberry bliss. I put in my order yesterday and can’t wait for it to arrive.

    Welcome home!!

  18. It’s great to be home and playing with my paper, stamps and ink again!

  19. Welcome Home Mary! Bet you loved coming home to a box of new goodies….Time to play. I’m totally in LOVE with the Hello Honey. Can’t wait to get together and hear all about your trip.

  20. This card is great for showcasing the new colors. I am liking “Lost Lagoon.” How fun to come home to a box of new products! So glad you had a wonderful cruise. Sure looked like a lot of fun! : )

  21. Love the Lost Lagoon! Cannot wait to get the new colors.

  22. Blackberry Bliss is the one! Love it and cannot wait to start using it.

  23. Kitty Collier

    Mary, The colors are great. I love your card. My favorites of the new colors are Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey. I can’t wait for my own order of new products to arrive so I can play with them as well.

  24. Hello Mary, as always I look forward to your posts. So glad you had a wonderful cruise! The color that I think I would do the most with is Lost Lagoon. Blue is my favorite color and I love to play with different shades of blue. Have a wonderful day 🙂

    Good Morning Mary, Love the punch of this card. The colors are great. I love how you use the layout, like it was just made for this showcase of colors. How nice to come home to a box of goodies. Have a great day! 🙂
