Color Revamp – WOO HOO

Today’s post is all about the upcoming Color Revamp!  Stampin Up doesn’t do this very often but when they do they go all out.  You might be wondering why do a color Revamp.  Stampin’ UP! is always searching for those colors that are new and On Trend and usually use the 2 year In Color Collections to keep things fresh, but this year, there was a need to more than just the change out of the 5 retiring in-colors.  Thus, a Revamp.


The revamp has some returning favorites though.  Remember BlackBerry Bliss and Mossy Meadow, in-colors from a few years ago.  They are back, in the permanent line up.  I’m so excited for those returning colors as they were my favorites before.  There are other returning favorites, many of you might remember Poppy Parade or Coastal Cabana, and Mint Macaron.  It’s like they read my mind on what I loved.

There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics. In order to keep color collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White were moved out of the Neutrals collection. There are also a few colors moved into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful!

Some additional colors have changed collections as well—you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections below. So, here’s a look at all of the colors (excluding the Basics collection):

Here are the new colors added to the core colors:

And here are the In Colors:


As we anything coming in new, that means other colors will be leaving.  Here is a list of Retiring current colors.  If you are interested in purchasing these colors – ink pads, reinkers, markers, cardstock – now is the time.  Supplies are only guaranteed through May 7.  After that they will be While Supplies Last.  So don’t delay.

On May 31, 2018, thirteen colors are retiring.

Now, if you have looked through the retired list I published yesterday, you may be wondering why you see all of the ink pads on the Retiring List?  Stampin Up took advantage of so many color changes they also redesigned the stamp pad cases making them easier to open and best of all, stack-able!!

Not only have the cases been redesigned, but the ink formula has been changed too! More details to come about these changes as it gets closer to the launch of the new catalog June 1. Just know that all of these changes are a good thing!
