2015-17 In Color Pairings

IC tip top taupe

Do you remember the previous post with the cool layout I posted HERE?  I decided to use that same layout and explore some interesting color combinations using the new 2015-17 In Colors along with existing colors.  I’ve really enjoyed seeing different results in using all of the In Colors together, and now it’s time to pair the new In Colors with some of our other favorites.  Here are a couple of cards using just the new 2015-17 In Colors –  click HERE, HERE and HERE for some samples of how well they work together.  For now, let’s look at some other combos!


This card begins with Tip Top Taupe, our brand new neutral in the 2015-17 In Color Collection.  I love this paired with Basic Black, but then it needed a pop of color – and Bermuda Bay was just the color to do that!

IC Cucumber Crush

Next up is Cucumber Crush.  It looks fantastic with Basic Black again, and an equally bright and cheerful color Melon Mambo.  It’s also going to be a great color for a traditional Christmas green color.

IC Delightful Dijon

Delightful Dijon is going to be my “go to” color of autumn!  I just love the rich gold color.  It pairs nicely with a lot of the Regals Collection colors, and here I chose Cherry Cobbler.

IC Mint Macaron

Mint Macaron looks wonderful with a lot of colors!  I chose Calypso Coral and Blackberry Bliss for this card for a bit of an unusual combination but one I think works well.

IC Watermelon Wonder

If I had to choose one favorite color among the new In Colors, it would be Watermelon Wonder.  I love that it’s an unusual pink with a touch of coral to it.  It also combines well with a variety of colors.  Here I chose Island Indigo and Smoky Slate.


With all the cards, I used the 2015-17 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack, a White Perfect Accent and a Rhinestone for accessories.  Some have ribbons; others have a strip of cardstock in the background.  I used three different Circle Punches and ran the two colored circles through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.  And don’t forget to pop a couple of the circles up with Dimensionals – it makes such a difference!


You’ll notice that I stamped all of my cards with a welcome stamp – that’s because we added seven new members to the From the Heart Stampers Team last month!  Each brand new member received one of the color combos above.  I’d love for you to give the Stampin’ Up! experience a test drive – why not check it out further HERE and let me know if you’re interested!
