Today’s featured color is “Lucky Limeade.” Limeade (sometimes called Lime-en-ade) is a beverage similar to lemonade, but is made with lime juice or lime flavor(s) instead of those of the lemon. Rose’s lime juice, is a concentrated drink additive and was patented in 1867. Lucky Limeade looks exactly as it sounds, just like a lime! Take a look.

Today’s feature color is, “Island Indigo.” I find this color to be most fascinating, because of the history of Indigo.
India is believed to be the oldest center of indigo dyeing in the Old World. It was a primary supplier of infigo dye, to Europe as early as the Greco-Roman era. The association of India with indigo is reflected in the Greek word for the ‘dye,’ which was indikon. The Romans used the term indicum, which passed into Italian dialect and eventually into English as the word indigo.
The Indigo birds and whydahs, are finch like species which usually have black or indigo predominating in their plumage. The birds named “whydahs” have long or very long tails in the breeding male.
The Indigo Bunting, is a small seed-eating bird, in the Cardinal family. It is migratory, ranging from southern Canada to northern Florida. The coloration, of the male is a vibrant blue in the summer and a brown color during the winter months, while the female is brown year-round. The male displays brightly colored plumage during the breeding season to attract a mate.
Lactarius indigo, commonly known as the indigo milk cap, the Indigo (or blue) Lactarius, or the blue milk mushroom, is a species of fungus in the Russulaceae family of mushrooms. A widely distributed species, it grows naturally in eastern North America, East Asia, and Central America.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this bit of history regarding Indigo.

Welcome to Wisteria Wonder Wednesday!
Today’s featured color is, “Wisteria Wonder.” Wisteria is a pale tint of violet, named after the Wisteria flower. Crayola introduced a crayon in this color in 1993. The first recorded use of wisteria as a color name in English was in 1892.
Tune in tomorrow for another introduction to a new 2011-13 In-Color.
Good Tuesday Stampers!
Today’s featured color is “Calypso Coral.” Coral has various shades and this 2011-13 Stampin’ Up! In-Color is spot on as a light pinkish-orange. Coral is one of the most popular colors in interior design, because it gives rooms a calm feeling of warmth. Coral’s complementary color is Teal and is one of the official colors of the Miami Dolphin’s Football Team. Please note my photos look a bit more orange then the Calypso Coral is in person.
I’ll be back tomorrow with another 2011-13 Stampin’ Up! In-Color!
See you then,
For the next five days I’m going to introduce you to the new 2011-2013 Stampin’ Up! In-Colors! The Stampin’ Up! In-Colors are around for two years. So, last year’s In-Colors will retire next year in 2012. This year’s In-Colors go from 2011-2013. Sit back and relax this week, taking in the new colors and their fabulous names
Meet Pool Party. Not quite Baja Breeze, not quite Tempting Turquoise, this new color can really stand on it’s own. It’s almost like an opaque aquamarine. It’s luminescent and, well, just like the blue used in swimming pools, hence the name “Pool Party.”
