Stampin' Up!'s Color Revamp

 

 
Stampin' Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When we see changes happening, we review our color spectrum to ensure that we remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp!

In order to keep bringing you the most current and trendy colors, Stampin' Up! decided it was time to give our color collections a makeover.  With this revamp, you'll have a new variety of shades that will inspire creativity and allow you to explore more sides of your crafting. 
 
There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.
In order to keep our color collections to exclusive Stampin' Up! colors, we moved Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White out of the Neutrals collection. We've also moved a few colors into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful!
 
There are no changes to the In Color program. Every two years we will continue to introduce five new In Colors that will be available for the ensuing two years.
You may notice some returning favorites joining the core colors.  For example, Flirty Flamingo is back already! YAY! 
And Coastal Cabana is back.. it was a previous In Color! 
 
Here are the new colors added to the core colors:


Some additional colors have changed collections as well-you'll notice this as you look through the new collections below. You can refer to the old and new color charts in the 2018-2019 catalog. These changes were based on needing to maintain color balance in our updated collections. For example, Poppy Parade is now the brightest red so it is part of the Brights collection.
 
 
NEW CLASSIC STAMPIN' PADS
In addition to new colors, they also redesigned our ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and the formula of the ink has been improved as well.  The case now opens like a compact.. so cool! I think you will love these changes.

I'm SO excited about all the changes!  You might know that I'm not usually into changes.. but these are great ones!  I know you are going to love them too!
