Happy Tuesday!

I want to take a minute to thank you for your patience with my blog post notifications.  I know there were a couple of duplicate notifications that went live. My apologies for that.  I’m working on a new email platform and, like anything new, it had to be tweaked.  Along with the new platform, I’ve had to be tweaked, as well!  Change is good!  So, thank you again for your patience.

I’m so glad to be back to my patterned paper, stamps and ink.  Today I have a bright and happy Stitched Bloom card for you… Just for you!  There’s lots of circles and stitching in today’s design, but those who read my blog regularly know that any “pattern repeat” in a card design will always work well.

Our new 2021-2023 In Colors are out and I want to share them with you.    I thought I would start with our current 2020-2022 In Colors because every current In Color is in today’s card.  Below are all of our current In Colors and they’ll be with us for another year.

Stampin’ Up! actually coordinates the group of new In Colors each year.  They are always on trend and complement each other beautifully.  The same goes for each of Stampin’ Up!’s color collections.  For example, you can pick a color from the Subtles Collection and match it with another color from the Subtles Collection without giving much thought to the colors working together. Stampin’ Up! did all of the thinking for you. That’s one of the perks of their noteworthy color coordination.

Here are the new 2021 –  2023 In Colors!  The muted tones of the colors are so on trend for this coming year. They will coordinate beautifully with many of our current colors.

  • Fresh Freesia is a cool, muted soft pink leaning toward lilac.  I can see this working with each of the other new In Colors, but how about pairing it with Night of Navy or Pool Party?
  • Polished Pink is a warmer tone. Polished Pink would be beautiful with Shaded Spruce or Just Jade.
  • Evening Evergreen is a dark deep green with a grayish taupe undertone.  I can see Evening Evergreen with Cinnamon Cider and gorgeous with Sahara Sand or Gray Granite.  This one is going to be a beautiful new neutral for me.
  • Soft Succulent is a muted lighter green with gray undertones.  It’s subtle and has a richer hue than Mint Macaron.  I would pair it with Highland Heather, Cherry Cobbler or how about Bumblebee?
  • Pale Papaya is a muted orange-pink tone. It’s lighter than most of our oranges, and not as bright as Mango Melody.   I think it would be beautiful with Just Jade and Pear Pizzazz and stunning with Calypso Coral.

I know you will all agree that it’s exciting to have fresh, contemporary colors to add to our collection.  I’m looking forward to sharing more of the “new” with you.

So, take another look at the current In Colors, pair two, three or all of them together and create something fun and happy!

…the only limitation is your imagination!
