Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


I shared a card last post with the new Incolors.  Today I wanted to look a little closer at them.

I put together a comparisons chart to show you how the 2019-2021 InColors compare with other current colours.  I like to do this each year and everyone who comes along to my studio like to look at it closely.  It gives you a good idea.

On the chart below the new Incolors are marked with an asterix (*).

Rococo Rose – It’s like a dusky pink. It’s very popular at the moment in fashion and even decor.  Have you seen this colour around? It’s not as bright as Flirty Flamingo but darker then Blushing Bride.

Purple Posy – I will be honest, sometimes I am not sure of this colour.  At times it can appear a bit washed out while other times it gives a subtle purple shade.  It is certainly much lighter than the popular Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape.

Pretty Peacock – Another popular shade in fashion at the moment.  I was out shopping today and saw so many clothes in this colour.  I did tell my daughter it was Pretty Peacock.  She just rolled her eyes.  I don’t understand. 😉  I didn’t compare this to the Shaded Spruce or Garden Green here but when I looked at them earlier I find this is not as bright a green which is nice.

Terracotta Tile – When I pulled all the colours out I was amazed how close in colour it is to Calpso Coral.  I do use this colour a lot so maybe this will be a good alternative sometimes.  I will see about it.  It has a more pinkier tones perhaps?? And too it is another popular colour in the clothing range.

Seaside Spray – I quite like this shade of blue.  I have to say it was very popular at my Catalogue Kick off events over the weekend.  It is not as bright a blue as the Balmy Blue.  I think it is a nice blue for sea and sky stamping.

So I am not sure of what colour is my favourite as yet.  I am warming more to them each time I use them so stayed tuned for further projects and how I use them.

What is your favourite? Can you take the quick poll please.  It will be interesting to see what everyone thinks.



cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


You have possibly had a chance by now to see the 2017 Incolors.  Stampin’ Up! releases 5 exclusive new colours each year usually to freshen up the Colour Collections and be on trend.

What do you think of this year’s colours??  I thought we would get to know them a little better.

We have Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder  Pink and Tranquil Tide.


A deeper shade of Pink to Melon Mambo and a little richer.  I think this colour complements the other pinks so well and really brightens most other colours when they are used together.


This rich purple colour is darker than Rich Razzleberry which so many people love. It is slightly lighter than Blackberry Bliss which was an Incolor a few years ago.


OK.  Hands up.  Who didn’t like this colour when it first came out?? I have to say I nearly lept out of my chair when I first saw it.  I LOVED IT!  If you have seen my craft room and my studio you would know that I have a lot of the Lime Green colour around.  I was so excited. 🙂

I think this colour is so bright and fresh and happy.  It brings life to all the other colours.  I am in Looove. ❤


This pink is a darker shade to Pink Pirouette which I am glad.  And it is a more true pink than Blushing Bride.  I do use that colour a lot for pink but I am glad that this shade of pink has joined the team.


I do love this shade of Green.  It is darker shade than Emerald Envy and certainly Bermuda Bay. Quite a rich calming green I think.

Here are all the cards together for you.

I have used the Detailed Floral Thinlits for these and used the 2 Thinlits together.  The ribbon, which is the Incolor Fine Woven Ribbon covers the small line that you get when you emboss them.  The sentiment and stamped banner are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set and punched out with the Classic Label Punch. I discovered that one of the Banners from the Bunch of Banners Framelits dies will fit with the Classic Label Punch when it is punched out.   I was excited about that.

I put together a Colour comparison Chart which is what I usually do each year.  It is good to compare the Incolors to other current colours.  I thought I would share that with you.  The lighting is hard to capture each colour accurately.

I would love to know what your favourite Incolor is??  Drop me a comment.

Thanks for stopping by,
