Exciting news!

Hello!  I am so ecstatic about news that was released from Stampin' Up! yesterday!  I can't wait to work with the new colors and create some fun projects!

After a lot of research spanning a couple of years, Stampin' Up! is implementing a Color Renovation!  This means a fresh and exciting overhaul on our core color families, and will occur with the new Idea Book & Catalog that will be released on July 1, 2010.  
  • There will be four Color Collections:  Brights, Neutrals, Regals, and Subtles.
  • Each Color Collection consists of 10 colors.
  • The Color Renovation will mean that there will be 30 colors retiring from our previous color palette to make room for the new!  However, don't be sad!  I am confident that you will grow to love the new palette.  :)
Please note the following:  Stampin' Up! will continue to offer Brushed Gold, Brushed Silver, Confetti Cream, Confetti White, Glossy White, Naturals Ivory, Naturals White, Shimmery White, and White vellum cardstock, as well as White vellum paper.

The new color palette:  25 colors will be "staying", and there will be 10 In Colors joining them, along with 5 brand-new colors.  This gives us a total of 40 core colors.
  • In Colors that will be joining the core group - Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, River Rock, Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, and Wild Wasabi.
  • Note that Kraft has joined the core colors!  It has been renamed to "Crumb Cake" to fit the beautiful names SU! has given the colors.  An exciting point of this is that there will now be ink available to match!
  • The brand-new colors are:  Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, and Marina Mist.  Wait until you see these.. they are gorgeous!

Stampin' Up! will be releasing Stampin' Write Markers, Watercolor Wonder Crayons and Stampin' Pastels for the old In Colors and new colors!  These will also be available as Color Kits to enable an easy and inexpensive addition to your collection.  In addition, the new colors will be available as a free download to My Digital Studio on July 1st!  Digital accessories with these new colors will be available later.

I don't know about you, but I have always looked forward to the release of new In Colors that are for limited-time purchase.  So, will there be In Colors released still?  Yes!  There will be 5 new In Colors released each year in the Idea Book & Catalog, and each set of 5 will be available for 2 years.  So in the July 1st, 2010 Idea Book & Catalog there will be a total of 45 colors (40 core colors + 5 new In Colors).  In the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog, there will be a total of 50 colors (40 core + 5 In Colors from the previous year + 5 new In Colors).
