Have you heard about the big news Stampin' Up! has released?
We are getting 13 new colors in with our 4 Color Collections. Isn't that awesome! It's great to shake things up every once in a while. Of those 13 olors, there are 6 previous In-Colors that are coming back! They are:
Flirty Flamingo (Which is a current In-Color)
The color that I'm most excited to see back is Coastal Cabana. It's such a beautifu color. Another favorite for me is the Poppy Parade. I might even have some of the cardstock tucked away. I'll have to go and dig some out. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they are all coming back, but those got me excited.
Drumroll Please...Here are the Brand New Colors
I'm already in love with Soft Sea Foam. It's such a dreamy color. The Merry Merlot just wants me to have a glass of Merot wine. They are all so gorgeous and I can't wait to get my hands on these.
So now look at all the new Color Collections.
Take a special look at the Neutrals Collection. Notice the three colors they added: Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy. They added those in the group to add some color, but most people consider them Neutral anyway.
Have you noticed what is not in the Neutrals Collection? Basic Black, Whisper White and Very Vanilla. Don't worry. They have been moved into their own category, Basics. By doing this, it freed up three spots in the Neutrals for the new colors. But at the same time, we wouldn't survive without those Basic colors.
Another revamp Stampin' Up! has done is they changed the case of the ink pads. They are easier to open, larger outside label, and now have a label on the inside by the foam! You can see what color pad you are using! Another great element is now they stack together! This will make them even more portable. And don't worry, the pads stil flip open, so when storing, the pad will be upside down. Ever notice why Stampin' Up! is one of the few companies that have this particular design? It's so when they are not being used, the pads are upside down and gravity pulls the ink to the top of the pad, not the bottom. I even store my Tuxedo Memento Black pad upside down because of this.
With all these changes, the In-Color program remains unchanged. They will be with us for two years before they retire. So, here are the new In-Colors:
I think I'm going to like them!
Of course, with all these new colors coming in, there had to be room for them. Sadly we have to say good-bye to:
Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Wisteria Wonder, Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo, Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi.
I'm sad to see Chocolate Chip and Island Indigo leave. I will miss them, but I'll fall in love with a new color. Which one will you miss?
Don't worry. You can still order these colors before they leave us. They are on the Retirement List and available while supplies last or until May 31. If you need cardstock, new ink pad or refills, I wouldn't wait. Personally, I don't think some colors will last long at all.
Speaking of...did you see the Retirement List was released today? You can find them here:
The items on the Retirement Lists are while quantites are limited. If there is something you must have, I wouldn't wait too long. Once it gone, it's gone for good. But we are onto bigger and better things! That is how I am looking at things.
I'm excited for the new colors! The new Annual Catalog is fabulous. My wish list is way too long. Any questions about the new colors, just let me know. I'm here to help.
Until next time...Stampin' Always,
