I finally got my Stampin' Up order with all of the new colors!! What an amazing rainbow of fun. I am a color fanatic and I love every year when they give us five new in-colors. But this year, Stampin' Up released 5 in-colors, 10 new core colors and 6 colors returned to the line-up!
Before I continue, let me be sure to say that I am in no way affiliated with Stampin' Up. Every thing in this post is for my personal use that I also choose to share with you. Please read the footnotes on the chart for further disclaimers.
Click on the photo above or the link on my sidebar to download a complete list of all current and retired Stampin' Up colors with my choice for the matching Copic markers.
NOTE: Besides the new additions, I changed my Copic choices for two colors from previous years. It's not that the old choices were bad, but sometimes when new colors come out, they change my perspective on other colors. These colors are Sahara Sand and Calypso Coral.
I was asked recently if the charts were necessary. Personally, I like quick and easy charts. Let's say I pull out some Granny Apple Green cardstock and a leaf to color - I can glance at my Copic Color Match charts and reach right for Copic Marker YG03 and I'm ready to go!! I do admire an artist who can simply visual a color and grab the right one - but that's not me. I go to my reference.
