Stampin' Up Color Renovation

Although some of you may already have seen or heard, beginning this summer Stampin' Up! is introducing a Color Renovation. What's that you ask? Well, I'll tell ya!

For the past one and a half years, the talented people at SU have been busy researching color and developing a new color palette. And while I'm a little bummed since I just became a demonstrator in October and have spent a lot of money on markers, inks, and cardstock in the old color palette, I'm impressed and excited with the new color choices. So without further ado, let me introduce the changes to you.

Currently, SU! has 5 In Color colors a year, as well as their 7 Neutrals, 12 Bold Brights, 12 Earth Elements, 12 Rich Regals, and 12 Soft Subtles. With the changes, there will be 10 colors each in the following collections: Brights, Neutrals, Regals, and Subtles. If you are doing the math in your head, you may be saying, "But Erin, that means that not all the colors are being carried over." Yes, you are correct. Only 25 of the original colors will be carried over, 10 former In Colors will be returning, and there are 5 brand new colors! There will still be In Colors, however. The new In Colors will now have a lifespan of 2 years instead of just one, and they are still introducing 5 new ones a year.

Here are some of the changes I am most excited
- brand new colors: Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, and Early Espresso
- return of Pink Pirouette, Pacific Point, and Baja Breeze
- staying of Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, and Soft Suede
- Kraft is now called Crumb Cake and will be available in ink, as well as paper

For more information, I have included a nice visual which lists all of the colors. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

Also, here is a visual of the colors that are being retired. If any of your must have colors are on this list, contact me soon to place an order and stock up before they are no longer available!
