Wild about the Color Revamp!

Didn’t.  See.  This.  Coming.

I had no inkling (I crack myself up!) that Stampin’ Up! would be significantly updating the color palette.  Sure, not too long ago they said not to be surprised because the plan was to  freshen up the colors every 3-5 years, but I guess I wasn’t expecting it in the next annual catalog!

When this was presented at OnStage last weekend, I was floored and excited and eager to get started with the new (and returning!) colors.  I’ve had only a fleeting bit of sadness over some colors that are leaving; mostly I am ready to freshen up.  I can hardly wait to get them in my hands and set up my paper file system!

What you need to know now:

  • If you noticed that all the ink pads were listed on the last-chance retiring list, the reason is that the Stampin’ Up! ink pad cases have been redesigned.  In some instances, the colors themselves are retiring, but all current-design cases will be discontinued.
  • There are still four color collections, each with ten colors.  There is also a new color group called Basics, containing Whisper White, Very Vanilla, and Basic Black.
  • 27 of the existing core colors are being retained.
  • 10 new core colors are being added.
  • 6 former In Colors will be available again as core colors:
    • Mossy Meadow
    • Poppy Parade
    • Flirty Flamingo
    • Coastal Cabana
    • Mint Macaron
    • Blackberry Bliss
  • 13 core colors are retiring on May 31, 2018:
    • Always Artichoke
    • Chocolate Chip
    • Elegant Eggplant
    • Island Indigo
    • Marina Mist
    • Perfect Plum
    • Pink Pirouette
    • Rose Red
    • Soft Sky
    • Tangerine Tango
    • Tempting Turquoise
    • Wild Wasabi
    • Wisteria Wonder
  • 2016-2018 In Colors that are retiring on May 31, 2018 are:
    • Dapper Denim
    • Emerald Envy
    • Flirty Flamingo (retiring as an In Color, but becoming a core color)
    • Peekaboo Peach
    • Sweet Sugar Plum

What does this mean to you?  As always, if you love a color that is retiring, make sure you have at least one ink refill and card stock before supplies are depleted.  Although the retirement date is the end of May, products are only available while supplies last.

This is big change, and I’ll have more information when I know it is “legal” to be shared.  Stay tuned!
