Stampin' Up! Color Combo Ideas & Video

I wanted to figure out a way to REALLY get to know ALL of the new Stampin' UP! colors.. so I started by looking at each color group in the rainbow and making the cards below! 

I used all of the colors minus the neutral grays, tans, browns and black. 

I hope you find this look at the Stampin' Up! "color rainbow" helpful!

Stampin' UP! 2018 Color Family revamp: a study in Stampin' Up! color combos in rainbow order by Patty Bennett  www.PattyStamps.com

Step 1: Buy the assortment packs of cardstock from each color family (available 6/1/18 to customers)

Step 2:  Cut all packs in 1/2 for card bases, and cut the other halves into 1/4 sheets. 

Step 3:  Check out which colors seem to be in the same "rainbow" color groups. Make piles.

Step 4:  Create cards with all of the Stampin' UP! colors in "rainbow order" using the Painted Glass stamp set (rainbow), Love What You Do set (greeting), Rooted in Nature set (leaf and branch), White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon, and the stitched shape framelits and Layering Oval Framelits.

For this exercise, I wanted to see how each of the color groups worked together within their own color group.

Below:  Stampin' Up! shades of red: Lovely Lipstick, Poppy Parade, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler and Merry Merlot.  I found that Merry Merlot could either go with the reds or with the deeper purples or the vibrant pinks like Berry Burst.

Can you Guess what I am really excited about??  In the new 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! catalog, we will be able to purchase large note cards with envelopes, sized perfectly for the 4x6 Memories & More cards!!!  yay!

Large 4x6 Petal Garden note card with detailed die cut image from the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack. by Patty Bennett

So why might this be so exciting?  I have been wanting to use the beautiful detailed die cut image (below, from the  Petal Passion Memories & More card pack), but there is just no way to cut it down and keep the entire image on a regular size card! But since I was able to preorder these 4x6 cards as part of my demonstrator preorder earlier this month, I am excited to be able to create a card with this die cut!

 

Large 4x6 Petal Garden note card with detailed die cut image from the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack. by Patty Bennett

 

Above:  I cut a piece of the Petal Garden 6x6 designer paper down to 4x6 with my Stampin' Trimmer, and then just used my fine tip glue pen and my silicone craft sheet, to add glue to the detailed die cut and put it right on top of the 4x6 designer paper!  Isn't it so pretty!?  Then, it fits perfectly onto the new large note card!!

 

Tip! Use Stampin' UP! Fine-Tip glue and your silicone craft sheet to add adhesive to a fine / detailed die cut!

How simple! How beautiful!  How quick and easy!  yay!

As you can see, the Large cards are sized to provide a border around the 4x6 card, and then they fit right into the envelopes in the pack!!
