ICS Blog Hop Introducing the NEW 2019-2021 In Colors

New colors! Colors are such a fun thing. And Stampin' Up knows color. Each year they do a two year release of five super trendy fun colors to complement our core color families. And each year I am excited to be inspired by the SU designers. Although I will admit, I am sometimes sad to see some of the previous ones go. But let's explore our new colors! The ICS team is sharing projects using the new 2019-2021 In-Colors.

I just hosted my in studio Open House event and of course I had to show off our new In-Colors. I had lots of crafty friends come over and they loved the new colors. 

I feel it's a nice variety of colors. I designed a cute card using the new Above the Clouds Bundle and they could choose which color they wanted to create with.

Do you have a favorite? I can't decide! Here's a close up of one of the cards.

The balloon was stamped on Watercolor Paper with Stazon ink and then colored with re-inker and our Aquapainter. 

At my Open House events, I like to give lots of little gifts and samples. While the super cute box doesn't show off the new In-Colors on the outside, it does on the inside!

Each guest received a mini covered post it note pad, some covered chocolates, and a "spool" sample of our new In-Color ribbon.

These notepads feature the new In-Color card stock as well as the new In-Color DSP. 
I used the DSP on the hot air balloon cards too. Here's a close up of the new ribbon.

And lastly, I always make everyone an In-Color bookmark. They're great to tuck into your catalog.

I punched out the butterflies using the carry over Butterfly Duet Punch. Just a warning, the butterflies and bits will go flying if you are punching lots of them!

I had to clean them up pretty quick as my sweet dog Lissa has a fondness for SU paper.

You should definitely check our the SU website and take a look at the new In-Colors. If you don't have a demo already, feel free to look here:

It's so fun crafting with friends, here's a pic of lots of the crafty friends who came to join me this past Sunday for the Open House.

And here's a pic of Lissa and I snuggling for a bit after everyone left.

Have such a great time with your crafting and I'll see you next time!
Stay Crafty!
