Stampin' Up In Color Copic Chart 2014-16

I got a chance to snag some small samples of the new Stampin' Up 2014-2016 In Colors so the first thing that I did was update the Copic charts on my sidebar!!!

I tried to make it easier for those of you who have taken the time to color in last year's color chart and I added a new document that is the same In Color page from last year with the new In Colors added.  You can download that one page and be up-to-date.  Here's a link - or get it through my sidebar at any time.


However, it might be a good year to download the entire document because I left spaces for you to add Stampin' Up Blendabilities as you get them.  (Have you heard? Stampin' Up is adding their own line of alcohol markers! They only started out with 12 Stampin' Up colors, but the great part is that each color set actually comes with a trio of colors so that you can blend just like Copics!  They also have a set of six skin tone colors.  I played with them briefly while visiting with a Stampin' Up demonstrator.  I only had a few minutes to play with one of the color sets - so I'm not making any judgments at this point - but I do love matchy-matchy things!)  Here's a link to the entire chart, or it's on my sidebar at any time.



The new In Colors are deep and rich - and I need to build up a stash of sympathy cards - so I have used some of my new Copic matches to create this card.  NOTE: The purple is misleading.  The In Color is a deep blackberry - the matching Copic is on the outside of the butterfly.  The next lighter Copic for blending is quite a bit lighter so the butterfly is not representative of the deep purple color.

So Sorry

My card uses the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.
