Color Revolution! New colors coming in July!

One of the things I LOVE about Stampin' Up is the fabulous colors! Just the other day I was lamenting how I missed some of the old in-colors and I wished they would bring some of them the back. THEN I saw the MOST exciting news from Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up! is announcing its COLOR RENOVATION coming in July!!!!

This is VERY exciting! Didn't you miss "Wild Wasabi" and "Baja Breeze"? Wasn't it heart breaking thinking that "Rich Razzleberry" and "Soft Suede" would be gone soon! With the Color Renovation, these colors are now CORE colors!

Stampin' Up will be adding 5 NEW color
s (Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso), bringing back 10 retired IN-COLORS(Baja Breeze, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry, Riding Hood Red, River Rock, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi), and moving colors around into four different color collections: Brights, Subtles, Regals and Neutrals. These collections are similar to our 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!!

There will be 40 Core Colors and beginning in July, the in-colors introduced each year will stay for TWO years! They will even be introducing a getting started collection with an assortment of colors designed for the new stamper!

Sadly, 30 current colors will be retiring in June.
The colors that are retiring 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, Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana , Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow, Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace, Basic Brown, and Going Gray.

(Based on my observations over the last few years, if you want to purchase a re-inker so your stamp set will last virtually forever, I STRONGLY recommend you order in April or early May. In previous years the in-color re-inkers sold out in early June and many people were left stranded!) It is always sad to say goodbye to our favorite colors, but Stampin' Up hasn't let me down yet and I am soooo EXCITED to get my hands on the NEW colors!

Feel free to email me if you have any questions!
