Stampin' Up!’s Colors Are Evolving! Color Revamp Time!

Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and read on for all the wonderful details!
Many of you noticed the ink pads on the retired list and I’ve had many questions, so let’s have a look at the color Revamp in detail, it will help answer your questions.
Why are the ink pads on the retiring list?
  • Stampin' Up! has improved the ink pad case and the ink formula.  The redesigned ink pad case is now more simple and intuitive.  Just insert your thumb in the lip and lift ... like a compact.
  • It has a tighter fit between the lid and the base and the lid won’t become accidentally disconnected.
  • It’s Stackable.  The ability to stack the cases is easier.
  • The case is slightly smaller and slightly thinner and has a very new sleek look. The pad inside is the same size.
  • Yes, they will still fit in the carousel.
  • Still has the great foam pad inside.

The Ink:  Don’t worry, the existing reinkers will still work in your old and new pads.
What did they change?  They put a de-foamer in the ink formula. This eliminates the bubbles many of us were experiencing.
On to the Color Revamp:
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 brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp!
There are still four color Collections: 

Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Whisper White have been moved out of the Neutrals Collection to a new spot.  A few new colors have been moved into the collection to make it more exciting and colorful.
Stampin' Up! sometimes brings back retired In Colors to become part of our core colors.  Welcome back:
These are the 10 New colors that have been incorporated into the revamp:

13 Colors will be retiring:  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. 

No Changes to the In Color program. There are always 2 sets and each year 1 set retires and is replaced by a new 2-year set. I Personally LOVE these 5 new colors!

Did you do the Math? We are keeping 27 of our existing colors and we now have 53 Colors coming in the New Catalog in June.
Download the entire New Color Family Sheet HERE
I hope I have answered a few questions for you. I know it is a lot of information to absorb. I feel confident that you are going to LOVE the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog! 

You will be able to order these new colors JUNE 1st.
Let’s grab those retirement lists so you can shop before these items are gone for good! You may shop at my online store for your convenience, HERE!

Retiring Lists: Get em while you can!

The Retiring Lists are out!!  This is a crazy time of year while we get ready for the new Annual Catalog (which will come out June 1st).  So, in order to make room for some FABULOUS new things, we will have to say goodbye to some other things!  

Here are the two lists ... one for the Occasions catalog and one for the Annual catalog.
Note: Both US and Canadian prices are listed.

Make sure to order colors, cardstock, ribbons, accessories immediately to avoid sell outs as items are "while supplies last".  Stamp sets are guaranteed to be in stock until May 25th, 2018, after that, they too will be while supplies last.
In order to keep the color palette fresh and trendy, Stampin' Up! will be retiring 13 colors. This means we will be seeing NEW colors in the next Catalog.
These are the colors retiring .... Be sure to stock up on your favorites before they sell out!!
