Color Renovation!

Some of you may have already heard the exciting announcement that Stampin’ Up! made this past week.  But for those of you that haven’t……  They are renovating their color line-up and it is fabulous!!!

Ok, for those of you that hate change, DON’T panic!  It’s a good thing.  A very good thing.  Stampin’ Up! is always trying to stay on the forefront of today's trends and this is just another great example of that.

Stampin' Up! is releasing 5 BRAND NEW COLORS and BRINGING BACK 10 of the retired In Colors!!  Yes, you heard (read) that correctly.  Some of the old In Colors are coming back!  On July 1st, with the release of the new Idea Book & Catalog, this is how our color collections will look.  I am so excited!!!

Just the other day I was saying, ok (whining), when are they going to change some of these colors?  And in the same breathe, worried about Soft Suede going away in a couple of months.  It’s like somebody was listening to me.  I think I might need to check my house for “bugs”.  Not only are some of the outdated colors going away, but, some of the retired In Colors are coming back.  And best of all, Soft Suede is staying!

Let me see if I can give you the details of what’s staying, what’s going, and what’s new, without confusing everyone!

Break down of the color renovation:

25 current "core" colors (including neutrals) will be carried over to the new color collection:

  • Regal Rose
  • Tempting Turquoise
  • Old Olive
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Real Red
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Sahara Sand
  • Very Vanilla
  • Whisper White
  • Basic Gray
  • Basic Black
  • Elegant Eggplant
  • Night of Navy
  • Not Quite Navy
  • Always Artichoke
  • Garden Green
  • More Mustard
  • Bravo Burgandy
  • Pretty in Pink
  • Rose Red
  • Perfect Plum
  • Bashful Blue
  • Certainly Celery
  • So Saffron
  • Kraft ~ Crumb Cake ( new name / same color) I’m hoping this means we’ll have Kraft as an ink color and not just a paper color.  :0)

10 Past & Current In colors  are being added to the New color collection:

Past "In colors" added

  • Pacific Point
  • River Rock
  • Tangerine Tango
  • Riding Hood Red
  • Pink Pirouette
  • Baja Breeze
  • Wild Wasabi

Current "In Colors"  added

  • Rich Razzleberry
  • Soft Suede
  • Melon Mambo

5 Brand new core colors will be added!

  • Daffodil Delight
  • Early Espresso**
  • Cherry Cobbler**
  • Cajun Craze
  • Marina Mist

That brings us to a total of 40 colors.

Then, 5 Brand New In Colors will be added.  These 5 will now be good for two years instead of one.  I think that is awesome!  An additional 5 In Colors will be added next year, July 1011.  This will give you a total of 40 core colors and 10 In Colors. By adding 5 this year and 5 next, only 5 in colors will retire at a time, not all 10 at once.

Confusing, I know.  You’ll just have to come to a Class or Club to see them in person and really get the full impact of this exciting line-up!

I am so excited about all the new colors and the fact they kept some of my favorites!

These new collections are similar to our old color families, but the brights are less overwhelming, and the subtles are less pale.  The new collections are based on years of research and market study!!

Sadly, 30 current colors will be retiring in June. The colors that are retiring are: 

Lovely Lilac Brilliant Blue Pixie Pink
Gable Green Orchid Opulence Ruby Red
Green Galore Close to Cocoa Pale Plum
Yoyo Yellow Glorious Green Mellow Moss
Only Orange Really Rust Going Gray
Pink Passion Bordering Blue Basic Brown
Summer Sun Brocade Blue Cameo Coral
Sage Shadow Handsome Hunter Ballet Blue
Barely Banana Creamy Caramel Blush Blossom
Apricot Appeal Almost Amethyst Lavender Lace
Taken with Teal    Crying 2

These colors (and coordinating items) will be available now through May 31st... AND June 1-30, as supplies last.  Order these items and stock up NOW before they're gone!!!!!

I will be posting more details as I get them.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  I'm glad I was able to share this news with you!

**I can’t wait to check out Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler!
