We are 5 days away from being able to order new catalog goodies! Are you excited? I sure am! Over the next 5 days, I’ll be showing you a whole bunch of projects that we got to see during OnStage this past April. Prepare yourself! Did you miss yesterday’s post? Check it out here.
Also, do you need a catalog? Request your copy here.
Today we’ll be looking at the brand new 2017-2019 In Colors! They are Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist. Need some color combination inspiration? Check out the free PDF below!
Powder Pink lays somewhere between Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette.
Berry Burst, one of my favorites, is bright and flirty. It’s not as bright as Melon Mambo but not as dark as Rich Razzleberry.
Tranquil Tide is really interesting. Depending upon what colors you pair it with, it will look more green or more blue.
Fresh Fig is deep and fruity. A very deep purple but a little more desaturated than Elegant Eggplant, it reminds me of a nice wine color.
Lemon Lime Twist which is a sort of neon green that’s loud and vibrant. This is my favorite new In Color.
How do the 2017-2019 In Colors Compare to other colors in our color library?
I’ve made a little video showing you exactly how these new colors compare with some of our existing and some of our past in colors.
Monochrome Cards with 2017-2019 In Colors
Here’s a thank you card in Fresh Fig:
And the same thank you card in the rest of the In Colors:
Did you notice the beautiful paper on these cards? This is the new Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.
It’s a 12×12 paper stack and if the patterns look familiar, it’s because you’ve seen them in the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper that will be retiring in the next few days.
We took 4 of our favorite patterns from that paper and recolored them with the new In Colors to bring you this wonderful stack of paper.

And here’s a box made from the Gift Bag Punchboard using the above color combination:
Did you notice the wooden elements?
How about the delicious new ribbon? This is the new Finely Woven Ribbon, which comes in all 5 of the new In Colors. It’s a soft ribbon thats pliable and easy to tie. But it’s just sturdy enough that it stays where you put it and it’s not so thick that it bulks up a card.
And the super cute stamp set that the gift bag was made with, You Deserve This, features 6 stamps including a mini-background stamp that was used to create the front of the gift bag:
- Powder Pink
- Calypso Coral
- Bermuda Bay
- Wild Wasabi
And here’s a card featuring the Powder Pink color combination along with the new Daisy Delight stamp set, gold faceted gems and embossing paste!
Yes! Embossing paste!
That you can use with the new Pattern Party Decorative Masks.
You just put the mask over your cardstock and spread the embossing paste over the mask with a palette knife:
- Berry Burst
- Pear Pizzaz
- Pool Party
- Night of Navy
Here’s the card that was made with the Berry Burst color combination:
Do you recognize the pattern on the background of the card? It’s the hexagon from the Window Box Thinlits Dies!
And, we’re not quite done with the embossing paste yet! Did you know that you can color it? Simply take a drop or two of whatever color ink you like and mix it into the paste like you would if you were coloring frosting. You can do this on top of the Silicone Mat for easy mixing and cleanup.
Once the paste is mixed, put your Window Box pattern over the card base and brush the colored embossing paste onto the template.
Then lift the template off of the card base and let it dry.
What a wonderful way to create a tone-on-tone card with lots of texture! Jazz it up further with a custom envelope made from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack!
