Introducing the New In Colors!

Crisp Cantaloupe

I am so excited to share the new 2013/2014 In Colors! I LOVE every one of these colors, they are just so fresh and cheery! They are as delectable as their names suggest and they complete our upcoming Color Refresh perfectly. Stampin’ Up did a fabulous job with this color update! The colors that I have labeled as Refresh are past In Colors that are making a comeback to freshen up color groupings.

Of course, the pictures never do them justice. I think Crisp Cantaloupe is one of my favorites, it is brighter and deeper than this picture. It really looks like the flesh of a cantaloupe! It is lovely with Calypso Coral.

Baked Brown Sugar

Baked Brown Sugar is a rich caramel brown. It looks wonderful with all of the colors shown here and is much richer in person.

Pistachio Pudding

Pistachio Pudding is a lovely but subdued minty green. It has a hint of sage to it, so it will be very versatile. Love having this green alternative!

Strawberry Slush

Strawberry slush is a a yummy deep pink. It really does remind me of a strawberry slush. Not nearly as bright as Melon Mambo, but a lovely pop of color when paired with some of our Subtles. LOVE!!!!

Coastal Cabana

I did two comparisons for you with the new Coastal Cabana. This is a gorgeous light teal that just screams… come to the islands! I paired it here with current colors so that you would have a better idea of what it looks like in person.

Coastal Cabana

Here I compared it to some of the refreshed colors so that you can see what a wonderful new color palette we will have to work with. I adore these colors, they make me want to slip on some sandals and head to the beach!

Available for purchase on May 31st or now if you sign up to be a demonstrator during the current preorder period. I guess that makes this a great time to mention that new demonstrators currently choose $155 worth of product for only $99 in their demonstrator kit (plus an additional $50 in free business supplies).
