I wanted to figure out a way to REALLY get to know ALL of the new Stampin' UP! colors.. so I started by looking at each color group in the rainbow and making the cards below! 

I used all of the colors minus the neutral grays, tans, browns and black. 

I hope you find this look at the Stampin' Up! "color rainbow" helpful!

Step 1: Buy the assortment packs of cardstock from each color family (available 6/1/18 to customers)

Step 2:  Cut all packs in 1/2 for card bases, and cut the other halves into 1/4 sheets. 

Step 3:  Check out which colors seem to be in the same "rainbow" color groups. Make piles.

Step 4:  Create cards with all of the Stampin' UP! colors in "rainbow order" using the Painted Glass stamp set (rainbow), Love What You Do set (greeting), Rooted in Nature set (leaf and branch), White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon, and the stitched shape framelits and Layering Oval Framelits.

For this exercise, I wanted to see how each of the color groups worked together within their own color group.

Below:  Stampin' Up! shades of red: Lovely Lipstick, Poppy Parade, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler and Merry Merlot.  I found that Merry Merlot could either go with the reds or with the deeper purples or the vibrant pinks like Berry Burst.
