Colour Renovation

Stampin' Up! are excited to bring to you a new world of colour in Stampin' Up!'s Colour Renovation. For over two years, they have done extensive research including investigating colour trends in the fashion, home d├ęcor, and crafting industries, and have conducted focus groups involving demonstrators, customers, and Stampin' Up! experts. They found that it was time to update the colours so that you have a fresh, on-trend colour palette to work with! Stampin' Up! have learned from the successful In Color programme that you love getting new colours.

The new colour palette is organised into four collections: Subtles, Brights, Regals, and Neutrals. You will see 25 of our current colours remaining, and ten past In Colors returning as core colours, and the addition of five new core colours. Check the colour charts below to see what the new collections look like, and what colours will be retiring.

New In Color Programme
One part of the Colour Renovation that I am sure you're going to love is the new In Color programme! Each year Stampin' Up! will introduce five new In Colors, and they will remain for two years. This means that the 2010-2011 In Colors which will be introduced in September, but will not be retired until the 2012-2013 colours are introduced. This year there will be only be five In Colors, but after that, we will always have ten (the previous year's plus the new).

These changes only take place on 1 September when the new Idea Book and Catalogue is released but you may want to stock up on ink pads, reinkers and cardstock as they will be in popular demand.

  1. Hi Kathryn. I can't get to your email for some reason but wanted to thank you for your note. I'm on my way to the doctor's this morning for them to take off the bandages and splint. I can't put any weight on that foot at all and it is very frustrating to lay in bed all day and not be able to do much of anything especially stamping! I am so proud of how you have taken off as a demo and your work is fantastic! You are a true inspiration. Hope you are doing well. Hope to talk soon. Love, Debbie
