It is that exciting time of the year when Stampin’ Up! starts to release its new products to the world. And boy, have they surprised us – the biggest surprise of all was the colour revamp with seventeen Stampin’ Up! new colours. Tomorrow I will be posting my first sneak peek of the new 2018-19 Stampin’ Up! Annual Ideas Catalogue, including new products available on 1 May 2018 – an early release. Don’t forget to check it out.
And the Biggest News is the Colour Revamp
As you probably have guessed Stampin’ Up! is known as a Paper, Ink and Stamp company. Two of these are getting a massive overhaul – new colours and new style easier to use ink pads. What does this mean for you? A fabulous variety of products and fresh, vibrant colours to help you stretch your creativity. Of course, you can still use your retiring colours on projects – you just won’t be able to purchase those colours in ink pads, cardstock or reinkers.
There are still four colour collections, each with ten colours. But there is now a new colour group called Basics.
In addition to new colours, Stampin’ Up! also redesigned our ink pads. The case is easier to open and the ink formula is improved as well! You will love these changes.
So which colours are retiring?
Thirteen colours will be retiring on 31 May 2018:
Always Artichoke; Chocolate Chip; Elegant Eggplant; Island Indigo; Marina Mist; Perfect Plum; Pink Pirouette; Rose Red; Soft Sky; Tangerine Tango; Tempting Turquoise; Wild Wasabi; Wisteria Wonder.
The retiring 2016-2018 In Colors are:
Dapper Denim; Emerald Envy; Peekaboo Peach; Sweet Sugar Plum; with Flirty Flamingo retiring as an In Color, but continuing as a core colour.
Do you like the Stampin’ Up! New Colours?
My favourite new colours are Granny Apple Green, Merry Merlot, Shaded Spruce and Mango Melody. Stampin’ Up! also have also included some returning In Colors – Mossy Meadow; Poppy Parade; Flirty Flamingo; Coastal Cabana; Mint Macaron; and Blackberry Bliss. These were all favourites of mine when they were In-Colors.
But I still have the new 2018-19 In-Colors to announce!
And this is how it all comes together with the Basics not pictured (Basic Black, Whisper White and Very Vanilla).
To make it even easier for you I will be releasing some more resources that you can print up at home. Stay tuned.
I have released the details of the majority of my May Creative Classes and the Great Craft Destash – check out all the details here.
And as new products are coming, it means we have to say goodbye to some of our favourites – check out all the details here.
Happy Crafting and remember I am here to help you.
