I've returned from our wonderful 7 week holiday in Europe, to the very chilly weather of Melbourne in Winter. The cold has been such a shock after the warm weather of the northern hemisphere spring/summer. We try to celebrate our anniversary every 5 years with a nice holiday overseas and this year was our 35th anniversary. Not sure where all the years have gone, lol.
I hope to have some cards for you shortly as I reboot my crafting mojo with the fabulous 2018 Annual Catalogue. Sooooo many lovely products available and a fabulous updated range of colours. I have spent a couple of days cleaning and tidying my craft room and organising my new supplies in preparation. However, today I have a couple of updated resources for you.
Sponge Dauber Box Insert
If you use one of these boxes for your sponge daubers, then I have an updated insert with the new colours, for you.
I use a labelling machine to add a robust label to each dauber and then store them in their colour collections in this box. I have a second box for In Colours and retired colours. If you want to update your dauber box with the new insert, then use the link below to download it. I print it on Whisper White card stock, then laminate it (or cover with clear adhesive film) and trim right on the edge of the border and it fits snugly in the lid of the box. If you want more details about the box and where to buy it, then you can see it here.
Colour Chart - HEX/RGB & Copic Matches
I have an updated chart for you with the colour codes to use for printing text with your computer and printer as well as matches with Copic markers. For the first time, Stampin' Up! have provided the actual HEX colour codes for the 50 colours, which are fabulous for use online. However, if you want to print Stampin' Up! colours using your computer, then you need the RGB colour codes. My updated chart has the Stampin' Up! Hex codes and the RGB codes so you can print colour matched text for the re-vamped colour collections and In Colours. You can use the link below to download it. I print this on Whisper White, laminate it and keep it handy to my craft desk.
Stampin' Up! now have the fabulous Stampin' Blends alcohol markers available in 22 of the 50 available colours. Using these markers for your colouring will provide you with an exact match with other Stampin' Up! products. These are definitely my preference as you have a light and dark shade for each colour, making it so easy to add depth to your colouring.
However, if you have a stash of Copic alcohol markers or want to use a matching colour for the other 28 Stampin' Up! colours, then I have provided my best match for the Copic colour. Additional Copic colours are released each year, so better matches may become available over time.
I hope you find these resources useful.
See you soon.
