Woohooo!!! Color Facelift!

I am excited to let you know that Stampin' Up! is introducing a bunch of new colors and bringing back some old "In Color" favorites in the upcoming 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog!

Here is the Color Renovation chart:

Looking at the chart you may have noticed that in addition to the new colors there is also a new way to organize them in a very fresh & current way into new "Color Collections" (vs. "Color Families").

I am so excited that my favorites are still here and now we have more fun new options to use, too!! If you are wondering about some of the colors you may be used to seeing, yes, some of the less popular colors are retiring, but the popular ones are still around & there are lots of new options.

There are also going to be five new In Colors every year (starting with the new Idea Book) and they will be around for two years! So, this summer we'll get five and next summer we'll get another five so we'll have 10 new In Colors at that point with a new five coming in every year.

For those of you wanted to check on a certain color, here are the details:
In Colors that are back (!) and now part of the Core Color Collection:
Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango (used on my card on the right), River Rock, Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi.

The five brand-spanking new Core Colors:
five new Core Colors: Daffodil Delight (a very pretty yellow), Early Espresso (a gorgeous deep brown), Cajun Craze (a very rich orange), Cherry Cobbler (red of course), and Marina Mist (a very pretty blue).

And, here is the detailed listing for each of the new Core Color Collections:

Brights Collection: Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Real Red

Regals Collection: Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, Always Artichoke, Garden Green, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Riding Hood Red, Cherry Cobbler, Bravo Burgundy

Subtles Collection: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Perfect Plum, Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, So Saffron

Neutrals Collection: River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake (formerly called Kraft), Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Basic Gray, Basic Black

Time to stock up! If any of these are your personal favs, now is the time to stock up on ink, paper, etc. because they are retiring with the current catalog.

Retiring Colors:
Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal, Ballet Blue, Barely Banana, Blush Blossom, Bordering Blue, Brilliant Blue, Brocade Blue, Cameo Coral, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Gable Green, Glorious Green, Going Gray, Green Galore, Handsome Hunter, Lavender Lace, Lovely Lilac, Mellow Moss, Only Orange, Orchid Opulence, Pale Plum, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Really Rust, Ruby Red, Sage Shadow, Summer Sun, Taken with Teal, YoYo Yellow.

I am very excited for the new options, though I admit I will be stocking up on a few of my personal favorites that made it to the retiring list. I think it's very cool SU! is staying trendy. Imagine if we all still had bright orange and avocado green kitchen appliances?!? Eeks! I'm definitely looking forward to playing with these new choices and seeing all of the cool new accessories that will coordinate with them! How about you??
