Stampin’ Up announced today that they will be doing a “colour renovation” in the upcoming catalogue (due for release in July)!
There are going to be 4 Collections - renamed from colour families. The collections are: Brights, Neutrals, Regals and Subtles. Each collection will be comprised of 10 colours (instead of the current 12) for a total of 40 core colours. There will be five brand new colours introduced - Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler. In addition, 10 In Colours will be returning as core colours - Melon Mambo, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, River Rock, Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red, Rich Razzleberry, Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette, and Baja Breeze. Also, Kraft has been renamed to Crumb Cake, and will be a core colour in the Neutrals collection. Unfortunately 29 of the current core colours are going to be retired. I will say that most of the retiring colours are ones I do not use, however there are a few that I plan to stock up on.
The following will still be available: Brushed Gold, Brushed Silver, Confetti Cream, Confetti White, Glossy White, Naturals Ivory, Naturals White, Shimmery White, and White vellum card stock, as well as White vellum paper
An exciting part of the announcement was that each year when the new catalogue is released there will be 5 new InColours introduced and they will be around for two years. In effect, except for the 2010-2011 catalogue there will be 10 InColours to choose from!
