Color Coach? Yes, Please!
Raise your hand if you remember the Stampin’ Up! Color Coach. Ok, put your hand down if your family is looking at you like you’re a little crazy.
For years, Stampin’ Up! has offered a Color Coach. At first, it was a color wheel, but then it morphed into a really cool tool with exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors. It was so amazing. I could say, “Hmmmm, what color do I feel like using today? Real Red?” No problem. I’d go to the Real Red page and see three different color combos.
Sadly, a lot of stampers didn’t see the amazing value in this tool, so it retired several years ago. Even though I could find inspiration in other places, I missed my Color Coach so much.
When I was able to purchase all the cardstock in new Stampin’ Up! colors after the Color Revamp, I cut them all in 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ pieces to make swatches in all the new and returning colors. I loved seeing all the colors together. It made me so happy, because I’m a color junkie.
With the Color Revamp, there’s an Online Color Coach on the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator page. Am I going to go online every time I need a color inspiration? No, I am not. Even though I’m a “boomer,” I”m still a tech junkie/addict. But my laptop is on my dining room table, three doors down from my craft room. I have an iPhone and a tablet – both of which are often being used by my 3 year-old granddaughter. I need tactile tools. So I printed the Online Color Coach. Did I use RGB or hex codes? Are you kidding? Did I mention I babysit my three year-old grand most days? I just printed – and the print version was vastly different from the “real life” colors.
Wait! Why couldn’t I combine the two? I cut the printed Color Coach sheets apart, then, adhered them to the corresponding colors of my swatch pack. Using the 1/2″ Circle Punch, I added cardstock swatches to the colors on the printed Color Coach. And I got this.
So amazing! I love this tool – and you can have and love it as well. I’m offering this Color Coach to the first 100 customers for $10. If you want to reserve yours, simply reply “yes” to this post before June 11. You can pay by paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org). (Edited: Ordering has reached capacity!
