2016 In Color Sneak Peek

This is one of the cards we made yesterday in our stamp club. It was inspired by this card on Pinterest, posted by my stamping sister, Lyssa Zwolanek. I wanted to showcase the new Dapper Denim, so I changed it up a little bit. I'm very happy that the two stamp sets used on this card are carrying over to the annual catalog!

I've been playing around with the new In Colors, and I've found some really lovely coordinating colors! The first thing I noticed is how well Dapper Denim pairs with Marina Mist. Oh, it's a match made in heaven, for sure!

That got me to thinking about what else pairs with the new In Colors. I already knew Flirty Flamingo and Watermelon Wonder go together like peas and carrots, but what about the other colors? So I grabbed some cardstock and started comparing, and this is what I came up with:
  • Dapper Denim and Marina Mist
  • Flirty Flamingo and Watermelon Wonder
  • Peekaboo Peach and Pumpkin Pie
  • Sweet Suagrplum and Rich Razzleberry
  • Emerald Envy and Mint Macaron

I'm sure there will be others that are discovered as time goes on, but these ones are a sure hit in my craft room right now!
