Stampin’ Up! likes to stay on top of current trends and every 5 years or so, they revamp our color selection to stay on trend. This weekend, Stampin’ Up! introduced this color revamp at 2018 On-Stage convention that I was fortunate enough to attend as a demonstrator.
I promise you’re going to love these changes because Stampin’ Up! carefully selected these colors based on demonstrators and customers requests. Many are returning favorites, while others were just simply missing from our color collection. And just like fashion and home decor, colors are trendy and need to be refreshed to give us new exciting color combinations to play with!
On May 31, 2018, thirteen colors of our core color collection and the five 2016-2018 In Colors will retire and be replaced by sixteen gorgeous new favorite colors and five new 2018-2020 In-Colors!!! Our color collection will actually grow by three colors!!!
The 13 retiring colors are: Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo, Perfect Plum, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi and Wisteria Wonder. If any of these retiring colors are a personal favorite, you’ll want to order cardstock and reinkers soon!
The 16 wonder new colors being added to our color collection are: Balmy Blue (new), Blackberry Bliss (returning favorite), Coastal Cabana (returning favorite), Flirty Flamingo (carrying over from 2016-2018 In-Color collection), Gorgeous Grape (new), Granny Apple Green (new), Gray Granite (new), Highland Heather (new), Mango Melody (new), Merry Merlot (new), Mint Macaron (returning favorite), Mossy Meadow (returning favorite), Petal Pink (new), Poppy Parade (returning favorite), Shaded Spruce (new) and Soft Seafoam (new). I can honestly say that these returning favorites are colors that I love and have missed.
Here is the new color collections by family name:
The new 2018-2020 In-Colors are really going to be bright, fun rainbow colors to design with, while the 2017-2019 provide the softer, more sophisticated color palette!
