Introducing Pure Poppy & Some Shimmer!

By August 12, 2008Color Comparisons

I know everyone is anxiously awaiting the *official* announcement about the color release for this month’s release.  I am proud to announce "Pure Poppy", a beautiful rich red that will be perfect for holiday cards and more!  I named the color Pure Poppy to pay homage to Lisa’s latest set, Remember.  I think you will agree that it is the perfect color to compliment her set!

EDITED TO ADD:  I do not have full sheets of Real Red or Red Riding Hood cardstocks from SU to provide a compare & contrast photo this month.  I own the Real red grosgrain ribbon and have found it to be a close match to our Pure Poppy color, if that offers any help at all.  If a customer is willing to share results of their findings at a later date regarding the cardstocks, I would be more than happy to share them here.  Thanks for your understanding!

Our neutral this month is 107# shimmery white cardstock.  It is stunning in person, but I am afraid not very photogenic!  There are many, many fun techniques I have discovered for this paper and I am looking forward to showcasing it over the next few months!  We will be retailing this new cardstock in 12 sheet (8.5 x 11) packs for $8.

    I have been waiting for PTI red!!! I have not bought any red paper or ribbon in the hopes that you would offer your very own soon. Thanks again for all you do. I love the quality of everything you sell.

    Will there be a poppy red Palette ink as well? I have about 10 different (not SU) red inks in my stash, and none is truly ‘red’ (even Moulin Rouge is darker than this poppy color).

    Loving the PTI cardstock and ribbon colors!!!

    I am just speechless. WOW!! I *LOVE* the new Pure Poppy. I was hoping thru your tutorial that the red was going to be the new color. I bet it looks amazing with the Aqua Mist. My favorite color combo right now. And shimmer paper!!! Amazing! I bet the copics really look gorgeous on that. 🙂

    Sooooo stinkin’ excited about the RED!! Real Red is one of my favorite colors but I am sure your red is going to blow it out of the water even if just for the weight of the cardstock. Fantastic!
