Introducing the 2013-15 In Colors



Can I have a round of applause please for a bunch of relative newcomers to the stamping world… the 2013-15 In Colors® (yes, I know we spell it "Colours" and it does grate with me, too, but it's a trade name). They’re a pretty subtle bunch on the whole but already they are making their presence felt on blogs, Pinterest and on mantelpieces across the land.

So let’s hear it for …


Baked Brown Sugar: a no-nonsense fellow with a sweet side, who enjoys gracing vintage projects and hanging out with oh so sophisticated Basic Black but really will rub along happily with just about everyone.




Coastal Cabana: outgoing and perhaps a little camp, this chap perhaps feels most at home in a retro situation and simply can’t wait for Christmas to come along when he’ll really shine alongside some of our festive reds.




Crisp Canteloupe: the quieter cousin of Calypso Coral, this little lady doesn’t seek attention but certainly gets it! She loves to hang out with her cousin, as well as her In Color Pals, but especially likes to get together with Mr Confident, Early Espresso. Opposites do attract, after all.




Pistachio Pudding: So reserved as to make Crisp Canteloupe look like a party animal but this fellow is definitely no wallflower. Most comfortable with his In Color pals, but also gets on well with other quiet types, such as Crumb Cake. Secretly yearns to get out and meet stronger personalities such as Midnight Muse and Early Espresso. Because let’s face it, everyone gets on well with Early Espresso!



Strawberry Slush: She’s sweet, she’s attractive, she’s pretty in pink… and, frankly, she knows it. She can carry off a retro theme, she can do girlie, she can turn her hand to pretty much anything. She’s so versatile you just can’t help loving her!

And finally can we hear it for me please, who spent AGES die-cutting and assembling all these flowers!?

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
