ICS Blog Hop Hello New Colors

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! I’m so excited to share the brand new In-Colors with you today! Every two years, Stampin’ Up! does a mini color refresh with the In-Color collections. This year the new set debuted, and I’m so anxious to share them with you!

We are hopping with the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop today! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and click that Next button when you’re done here to hop along to the next amazing project!

There are five brand new, beautiful colors that we will play with today! I wanted to make a card layout that would work well for all the colors. I decided to stick with a solid white background, and add the pops of color to make each one really stand out. I also was excited to play with a brand new bundle from the Forever Greenery Suite Collection.

Although the new In-Color ink pads are not quite available, I was still able to make this fun card using my Versamark stamp pad and some White Stampin’ Emboss powder. Heat embossing sentiments is a GREAT way to get color and words on your card without the words blending into the background.

I also really love how the Stazon in Jet Black can help to accentuate the colors. I stamped one of the greenery images on Whisper White card stock, then cut it out with the coordinating dies. I placed it on top of the designer series paper, but behind all of my other elements to really help them stand out.

Making multiple cards of the same layout in different colors is one of my all time favorite ways to craft! Not only do I get a bunch of cards at the end, but I get to see how each color works with my design. If you haven’t tried “assembly line” crafting yet, you might want to consider giving it a try!

I love assembly line cards! I made 9 cards in just about 30 minutes. I used Thoughtful Branches to create this card. Check out my video below to see the process! Don’t worry, I condensed the video down to under 10 minutes. 🙂
