Let’s look at each one and compare them with current and retired colors.
I think purple has been the most requested color as of late. Highland Heather is a great light purple and will work great with the new Gorgeous Grape. I’m sure purple fanatics will be pleased with these additions to the lineup.
Gorgeous Grape seems to be a true purple to me that should make all the purple lovers happy.
Merry Merlot is a new addition to the Neutrals Collection. It’s a bit darker than Cherry Cobbler, more like a burgundy, or maroon.
Mango is the perfect name for this new core color. It’s bright with a bit of red in it. It will be great in a fall color palette.
Petal Pink add a soft flesh tone to the color lineup with more yellow than Powder Pink or Pink Pirouette.
Shaded Spruce great dark green that has more blue to it than other Stampin Up greens. It’s slightly darker than the new Call Me Clover In Color.
Granny Apple Green
My only sad moment due to the color revamp happening this year, means that Lemon Lime Twist will definitely be leaving after 2019. I’m hoping that Granny Apple Green will earn a place in my heart. I feel my dislike for Yellow Greens changing with all of these fun new colors.
Soft Sea Form
Soft Sea Foam is the lights of all the Stampin Up Colors. It will make a great neutral baby color.
Granite Gray is a mid-tone gray between Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.
Balmy Blue will be the perfect Baby Blue.
On Friday I run down the same comparison on all the returning colors to the Stampin Up line up.
