Super exciting news as we start to get sneak peeks of the new catalogue due out in June! We are getting a COLOUR REVAMP! It happens in Stampin’ Up! Land every 3-5 years when the core colours get changed up a bit. Sometimes we have favourite In Colours come back (as is the case this year with 5 colours returning) and then there are the new fresh colours that are introduced. We will still have a new selection of In colours for 2018-2020 and they are funky,  fun and bright!

On 31 May 2018, thirteen colours are retiring.

  • 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

The retiring 2016-2018 In Colors are:

  • Dapper Denim
  • Emerald Envy
  • Flirty Flamingo*retiring as an In Colour and becoming part of our core colour collection.
  • Peekaboo Peach
  • Sweet Sugar Plum

New Colours: 

Returning In Colors that are joining our core colours:

  • Mossy Meadow
  • Poppy Parade
  • Flirty Flamingo
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Mint Macaron
  • Blackberry Bliss

PLUS 10 NEW Core Colours AND the 2018 – 2020 In Colours. Wow!

So the reworked Core Colour Families will look like this. You might notice that the Neutrals are a little more colourful and don’t panic as our trusty basic colours, Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Basic Black, are still available too.

In other News our Ink Pad design and ink formula will be changing. I tried out one of the new style pads last night and they are much easier to open and close (and gets easier as you use them) but two of the key factors for me are still there. The ink is still stored upside down so the top of your pad is always juicy and I can still do the squeeze trick to use my ink pad for water colouring images.

YES they do still fit in the Stampin’ Caddy if you have one.

YES you will be able to use the new reinkers on your old pads (with the exception of Basic Black and Basic Grey Archival pads and inks) The new formula and pads have a defoamer in them which solves the bubbling issue some folk had but it does mean that if you use OLD reinkers on NEW pads it will diminish the effectiveness of it.

I cant wait to start playing with these gorgeous new colours, I mean, look at all the purples!!! So many new combinations and  new favourites  waiting to be discovered.
