2013-15 In Colour Comparisons

by Joanne James20. August 2013 20:30

This year's 'in colours' have been around for a couple of months now and I find myself using them more and more. I prepared some colour comparison cards with my Mosaic Madness stamp set and punch to show how the new colours compare tonally with other SU colours in the same colour ranges some time ago, but I haven't shared them until now as I was waiting on a back order of two of the blue colours, then when they finally arrived I was so busy playing I totally forgot about finishing and blogging the card set! I tidied my desk this week and rediscovered them, so thought I would share them as I still get asked questions about how these colours blend. So one by one, here they are:

The blue collection:

Coastal Cabana is a lovely turquoise blue, darker than Pool Party but not as intense as the returning Bermuda Bay.

The orange collection:

Crisp Cantaloupe is a fresh pink-peach colour, very like the melon that inspired its name. It's the lightest in the orange colour range.

The green collection:

Pistachio Pudding is a pale green, again lighter than its nearest green neighbours.

The brown collection:

Baked Brown Sugar is a lovely rich shade of brown, more intense than Crumb Cake but not as dark as Soft Suede.

The pink collection:

Strawberry Slush is a lovely vibrant pink, brighter than Primrose Petals but again not as intense as Melon Mambo. the other great thing about this year's in-colours is they all co-ordinate beautifully together, as well as complimenting many of the existing colours. Here is the complete card set including each of the card colour sets:

So what do you think: which in-colour is your favourite and what's your favourite in-colour combination? Post me a comment below, or better still, pop over to my Facebook page and share a picture of something you've made in your favourite in-colour combination. Back soon with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Coastal Cabana is my favourite of the new colours but I do like them all.  Only problem is I keep singing copa cobana in my head!

I know what you mean Candace! I love them all too, even Baked Brown Sugar, even though I'm not a big brown fan - it looks so good with the other colours. You've got me singing copa cabana too now - it will be my new in-colour signature tune Smile
