Do you like to be on trend?  Love to play with color?  Paper crafting with color can be so much fun!  Can you guess what the Exclusive Color of the Year 2022/2023 with Close to my Heart is?

Melon Color of the Year

If you know me and how this is MY COLOR,
comment below if you ever saw me wear this color!
Ya never know…there might be a giveaway!
MELON comes in:
❤ stamp pad & reinker
❤ cardstock
❤ glitter paper
❤ shimmer trim
❤ shimmer brush
❤ ribbon
❤ flower pretties
❤ glitter gems
❤ Pearls
❤ Loose sequins
This is our exclusive Color of the year which can coordinate with so many colors!  Let’s check out just a few color combinations:
Do you ❤ SHERBERT?
Melon and Sherbert
Now  don’t these colors make you taste a delicious, ice cold and creamy sherbert?
Who ❤‘s a Creamsicle?
Who ❤‘s the BEACH?
Melon and Beach Colors
When it comes to vacations in the tropics, or a nice beach, palm trees and sandy toes,
I think the colors above would work great together.
When it comes to the blues, what color appeals to you?
Glacier for the softest blue?  Capri for the brighter, Mediterranean blue?  Or Lagoon to capture those turquoise waters?
Who ❤‘s the SHADES of Orange or Melon?
Melon and Shades
Remember, our Cardstock is TWO TONED, so one side is the true color (darker side)
and the other lighter side is a lovely shade/tone softer.


Here are a few pieces of new artwork that contains the color MELON.
You’ll find Melon Ink, Cardstock, loose sequins … but there is so much more!

  1. Saw you wearing orange several times at Cool Crops events. Looks great on you! I tend to wear turquoise/blue/navy because it is better for my skin tones.

      That’s right! And I do recall you wearing those colors. They look great on you!

  2. Definitely a Lynn color! You’ve worn it lots! I’m still partial to my purple 💜

  3. Did you wear the color melon during your deck the palms serenity crop.
    I love the new color of the year, creamsicle’s and sorbet. Blue lagoon is one of my favorite colors I think it will pair nicely with melon.

      I could have … I don’t recall what I wore during the event. I think it will work quite well with Lagoon .. and if you have the previous color of the year, Blue Belle.

  4. I think you have a sweater in this color 😊and a floral one that has this color in it ? 😊 looks like you’ll be wearing them when this color is in a virtual crop 😊👏
