Colour Renovation

Oh My, there is some exciting news at Stampin’ Up! They are renovating the color line-up and it is fabulous!!! I am so glad that they have given us plenty of notice before this comes into effect. Stampin’ Up! while having great quality colors, really needed to step it up and get on trend with some of the great colors that are so popular today.

Stampin’ Up! is releasing 5 BRAND NEW COLORS and bringing back 10 of the retired In Colors!! On September 1st with the release of the new Idea Book & Catalogue, this will be our NEW color collections…fabulous, right? I am so excited!!!

5 NEW COLORS on the chart above are:
Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso

10 returning IN COLORS on the chart above are:
Baja Breeze, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry, Riding Hood Red, River Rock, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi

As with all new things, sometimes we have to get rid of the old to make room for the new. So these are the colors we will bid a Fond Farewell to. They have served us well but it is time to move on and let the Color Renovation shine through!!!

Remember you have 5 months to stock up on these colours if you can’t live without them. They won’t be going away until the end of June.

Current colors that will retire in June are:
Glorious Green, Green Galore, Gable Green, Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac, Brilliant Blue, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Summer Sun, Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue, Ballet Blue, Taken with Teal, Handsome Hunter, Pale Plum, Blush Blossom (the marker will still be available), Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana, Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow, Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace, Basic Brown, Going Gray.

More interesting tidbits:

  • With the release of the NEW 2010-2011 Big Idea Book & Catalog – the In-Color line will be sticking around for 2 – YES 2 – years!!!
  • 5 NEW colors will be added each year – for a total of 10 In-Colors!!!!
  • If you have all the old colors – you will only need to add 5 NEW colors to your collection!!!
  • Kraft card Stock will have a new name – Crumb Cake 

I am hoping that this will mean that the Very Vanilla craft stamp pad will make a return, but I don’t know that for sure.

Also hopefully there will be a way for those with all the colours already to buy just the upgrade colours of everything. Fingers Crossed.

I will keep you updated of any new information that comes to hand.

But anyway, if you have been putting off buying any re-inkers then now is the time to start doing it because as the time grows near to September, some of these colours may go out of stock. I know that I will definitely be stocking up on the purple family. These are some of the most favourite colours that my ladies choose at classes.
