I am so excited to share with you the Color Renovation that Stampin’ Up! announced to Demonstrators last week. With this New Color Collection there will now be 4 collections instead of Color Families. In addition to 5 brand new colors they are bringing back some of our favorite In Colors! The new Collections are:
Brights Collection: Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Real Red
Neutrals Collection: River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft), Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Basic Gray, Basic Black
Regals Collection: Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, Always Artichoke, Garden Green, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Riding Hood Red, Cherry Cobbler, Bravo Burgundy
Subtles Collection:Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Perfect Plum, Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, So Saffron
Why am I so excited about these new collections? Just look at these gorgeous colors. A lot of them are seen right now in fashion and are trendy colors. Some of the current colors just don’t compare. This change will bring Stampin’ Up! more up to date and it will be easier to create fresh color combinations in your creations.
With any type of change there are a few colors that we’ll have to say good-bye to. The following colors will be retiring. I’d highly suggest that if there are colors you love to stock up now. Along with card stock there are also Stampin’ Write markers, Classic and Craft Ink Pads, re-inkers and accessories that you might want to purchase. You can do that online 24/7 on my website – http://igotstamps.stampinup.net
These are the colors that will be retiring as of June 30, 2010. As of June 1 they are available only while supplies last.
Retiring Colors:Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Pale Plum, Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac, Lavender Lace, Almost Amethyst, Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue, Ballet Blue, Brilliant Blue, Taken with Teal, Glorious Green, Handsome Hunter, Sage Shadow, Mellow Moss, Green Galore, Gable Green, Barely Banana, Yoyo Yellow, Summer Sun, Apricot Appeal, Only Orange, Real Rust, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Going Gray
I hope you are as excited about the Color Renovation as I am! I personally can’t wait to get started using the new colors and the returning In Colors. This chart does not even include the new 2010 – 2011 In Colors so there will be even more fantastic colors to use starting July 1, 2010!
