Now, when *I* look at the Stampin' Up color palette, I will admit, I have never said, "you know what we need? We need another taupe." So when I first saw this new 2015-17 In Color, I was a little skeptical. But now that I've played with it (lucky me! I love being a demonstrator and getting all my stuff early!) and had a chance to pair up some color combinations, I think Tip Top Taupe might be one of my new favorites!
it's an interesting shade. It's not brown, it's not tan, it's not khaki, not a burlap. It really is what I think of in my head as a true taupe. And I really, really like it with Sahara Sand, Delightful Dijon, and Cajun Craze and sometimes just a teeny pop of Mint Macaron.
Got a leetle bitty bit carried away with the watercoloring on these cards, so if you're squinting at them trying to bring them into focus, don't worry. It's not you. It's me. I also maybe need an intervention when it comes to over-use of the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
The Perfect Blend stamp set is retiring shortly--available until May 26th, and then "while supplies last" until June 2nd at midnight. I honestly can't imagine ever parting with this one... it would make a very useful addition to your stamp cupboard, if you do not already own it.
