Let’s start with Neutrals! To make room for some new neutrals, SU! created a new group, called Basics. That group has Whisper White, Very Vanilla, and Basic Black. That leaves seven in the group.
One neutral, Chocolate Chip, is retiring. Six colors remain (and I’m starting to talk like an Agatha Christie murder mystery).
Now, to complete the set of 10 colors in the Neutrals group, Stampin’ Up! added Merry Merlot, Gray Granite, Mossy Meadow, and Night of Navy (not a new color, but moved from the Regals group).
Does it surprise you to see — how do I say this? — non-neutrals in the Neutrals group? At OnStage last month, a speaker explained that Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy act like neutrals. Can I be honest and tell you that this doesn’t make any sense to me? I do not know what that means, because it seems a little like saying 2 + 2 = 5 because 5 acts like the correct total, but maybe it’s just me! If someone has an easily understood explanation, please share it!
Anyway, on to the creations! Using three different stamp sets, the concept artists at Stampin’ Up! have created three unique cards that showcase the versatility of Neutrals and prove that neutral does not equal boring! Here they are:
