New At SU May Blog Hop New In Colors With Core Colors

Welcome to the New At SU May Blog Hop as we explore the amazing new colors in the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. We will be focusing on the beautiful new 2023-2025 In Colors and how they look with the wonderful Color Collections Stampin' Up! has to offer. You may notice some new colors as well as some returning favorites that have been added during the recent Color Refresh. Our talented Design Team members will be sharing their ideas and projects to help spark your creativity and inspire you to explore these wonderful new colors. 
My favorite color is blue, so I had to choose the beautiful Boho Blue from the 2023-2025 In Colors to showcase with my card design. I chose to use the Zany Zoo Bundle to create a sweet celebration card that would work well as a birthday card or even as a Graduation card. I paired Boho Blue with Misty Moonlight and Lemon Lime Twist, two returning colors, and Lemon Lolly, a new color that has been added to our color collections. For the raccoon, I used a combination of Smoky Slate with Pebbled Path, another of the new 2023-2025 In Colors.

This fun clean and simple card design shows how beautifully Boho Blue plays with other Stampin' Up! colors. I love how it looks with Misty Moonlight to create a frame around the designer series card front and the focal layers. The pops of color from the balloons helps bring the card design to life. The striped Boho Blue card front creates a wonderful background for this design and I used the Countryside Corners Dies to create the layers for the focal image and the sentiment. I heat embossed the sentiment with White embossing powder onto the Misty Moonlight sentiment label to coordinate with the background. To create the raccoon image, I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black ink onto Basic White cardstock and colored it with a variety of Stampin' Blends Markers. The Pebbled Path Stampin' Blends are a wonderful alternative to using Basic Black and work well with Smoky Slate to color the raccoon. For embellishments, I used a piece of Lemon Lime Twist 1/8" Ribbon around the card front, beneath the sentiment label and I colored several Iridescent Pearls with the Light Lemon Lime Twist Stampin' Blends Marker to add a touch of bling. Boho Blue is a beautiful medium blue and is fast becoming a favorite new In Color. I hope you will give it a try with your new projects.
