New Color Collections

Wow, Stampin’ Up! have just made a huge announcement and allowed us to share it with you.  It has just been announced to demonstrators world wide that they are doing some major colour renovation!   I love this change, it means that Stampin’ Up! is striving to keep up to date with the fabulous colours that they will be introducing in our brand new Idea Book & Catalogue that comes out September 1st.  The colour families we are used to seeing will be gone and instead there will be these 4 new Colour Collections!

Each Colour Collection contains 10 colors.

  • 5 of these 40 colours are brand new (Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, and Marina Mist)
  • 10 are In-Colors either from this current catalogue or even returning favourites from previous years (Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, River Rock, Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, and Wild Wasabi)
  • and then the remaining colours are the colours that we have been used to seeing in our current colour families and neutrals up until now.

These 4 new colour collections will contain our 40 core colours and then there will be 5 new In Colours each year which will be available for 24 instead of just 12 months – twice as much time to fall in love with them!   We will get 5 new In Colours in September 2010, and then in September 2011 Stampin’ Up will add an additional 5 in-colours for a total of 10 In Colours in the 2011-2012 catalogue. 

Unfortunately that means that some of our current colours will have to be removed to make room for all these new colour collections.  So you have between now and September to stock up on any ink pads, refills, or cardstock in your favourite colours.  Don’t leave it to the last minute, as I imagine as we get closer to that September 1st deadline it will be on a first-come, first-served basis, and I would hate for you to miss out.

So which colours are leaving?

  • Bold Brights: Glorious Green, Green Galore, Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac, Brilliant Blue
  • Earth Elements: Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Summer Sun
  • Rich Regals: Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue, Ballet Blue, Taken With Teal, Handsome Hunter
  • Soft Subtles: Pale Plum, Blush Blossom, Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana, Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow, Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace
  • In Color: Kiwi Kiss (how will I survive?),
  • Neutrals: Going Gray

While I’m sad to see some of my favourite colours leaving, I’m also very excited about all the new yummy colours that we will be seeing in just 5 months!
