Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop | Colour Revamp

Paper Adventures - Blog Hop Header

Thanks for joining us for the monthly Paper Adventures blog hop.

Tonight’s theme is the Color Revamp.  As part of the new catalogue, Stampin’ Up! did a complete shake up of the colour range.  We saw favourite colours retired, retired favourites return and got new colours to love.  You can read more about the details here – click here.

There’s 53 colours in the range – 10 In Colors, 10 Neutrals, 10 Brights, 10 Subtles, 10 Regals & 3 Basics

Although I love the variety within and between each of the colour collections, my long-time favourite collection has been Brights.

I think the revamp has given it a fun shake up.  4 colours remain in the collection, 4 colours moved to the Regals collection 2 colours retired and we saw 6 new colours join the Brights family.

3 of these were returning In Colors (Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana) and 3 are new (Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape).

I have two projects to share with you tonight.

The first uses all 10 colours in the rainbow order they appear in the catalogue.  Previously Stampin’ Up! has used alphabetical order to arrange the colours.  The Color Revamp brings us a beautiful rainbow effect for each collection!

I’ve paired the colours from the Brights Collection with an elephant silhouette.  This oh-so-cute punch & coordinating Little Elephant stamp set is a new addition to my collection from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.

How beautiful is that rainbow???

Do you have a favourite colour???  It’s hard to choose, and probably depends on my mood.  At this moment in time, my favourite new colour is Granny Apple Green, my favourite returning colour is Coastal Cabana and my favourite carry over colour is Bermuda Bay!!!


The second project I am sharing today is a set of thank you cards I made to send out with my DSP & Ribbon Product Shares this week.  Curious about how to get all the paper & ribbon without spending $$$???  Click here to see the post on my 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue Product Shares.

Inspired by the pretty colours of the Brights collection, and other new things I was itching to play with, I created this set of cards using the 6 ‘new/returning’ Brights.

When making cards to go with orders, I like to show them what products they might have admired in the catalogue actually look like.

This card features the stars pattern from the Bokeh Dots stamp set, the dreamcatcher from the Follow Your Dreams stamp set and the thank you stamp from Love What You Do stamp set.

The panel on the left is embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  It’s a little tricky to see what it looks like in the catalogue, so I wanted to share how beautiful it looks in person.

These cards were so easy to make using my Stamparatus.  I was able to set the position and ink each layer several times to get some great depth of colour – and ensure an even inking.on the background stamp.

There’s so many amazing new products a part of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.  I look forward to sharing more with you over the coming months.  Click here to browse the online store.

Next up on the hop is our guest designer – Sara Levin.  Thanks to Sara for joining us.  You’re going to love what she’s made!!!

  1. These are all so incredible Kelly! I love the stripes with the little elephant but those dreamcatchers are amazing and you may have just convinced me to get that bundle 🙂

  2. STUNNING Kelly……loved the simplicity of the baby elephant and the rainbow of new colours, ansyTHEN the Bokeh stamp…. was very interested to see that and it looks fabulous the way you have used it! Beautiful work Kelly.

  3. Absolutely love them all! You’ve showcased the colours so beautifully. I particularly love the simple but striking design of the elephant card. And I can’t wait to see what colour I get with my paper & ribbon share because I couldn’t possibly pick a favourite!

  4. Stunning cards! That little elephant punch is just the cutest and your dream catcher cards are divine! All the sets you have used are products on my first order list for July. I can’t wait to get my hands on them. Love your work as always x

  5. Very colourful cards and that elephant is so cute.

    The Bokeh set is beautiful and the follow your dreams stamp set work well together.
    I appreciate the versatility of the stamparatus even though I’m still getting used to it.
