The Stampin’ Up! Colour Coach …… and why you need one!

So I had a parcel last week from my upline, a lovely welcome to my team card, one of her fabulous notebooks and a colour coach. Now, I’d seen the Colour Coach in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue, I’d looked at it, and thought “don’t need one of those, I understand colour, I know which colour work and which don’t!” I have always made my own colour swatches in the past, I have a tag for each Ink pad I own (including my Stampin’ Up! ones) so if I want to a can compare different colours, and I have used them previously to match inks to patterned papers or to choose an ink  colour for a particular stamp or image, so I really wasn’t planning on getting the Stampin’ Up! colour coach.


I was so very wrong! The colour coach is awesome! Each colour gets its own card; the front it a solid colour with it name and colour family along the side and bottom, while the back shows you 2 three colour combinations including the colour of the card, along with its ‘sister’ colour for creating a monochromatic look, two step stamping or choosing coordinating ink and cardstock.

The front of the guide explains how the coach works, while the back card gives you space to create your own colour combinations. The coach also include two cards giving the colours in each colour collection: subtles, brights, regals, neutrals. The current In Colours are available as two separate packs, one for the newest colours and one for the returning colours.


Stampin’ Up! also provide a great PDF (available here) which give you further tips and colour principles to get you started in your colour journey.
