What is this I am hearing about a Colour Revamp?

Stampin' Up! have announced that they have made changes to the core colour collections beginning with the release of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue on 1 June 2018.  In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colours, Stampin' Up! decided it was time to give the colour collections a makeover.  Welcome to the 2018 Colour Revamp! 


The first change is how the colour collections are configured.  There are still four colour collections, each with ten colours.  In order to keep the colour collections to exclusive Stampin' Up! colours, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White have been moved into their own, new colour group called Basics. 

As you look through the newly configured colour collections, you will also notice that some of the colours you know and love have changed collections too.  Also, the Brights are brighter, Subtles are softer, Regals are richer, and the Neutrals are more exciting.


There are no changes to the way that In Colors are released.  Every two years, Stampin' Up! will continue to introduce five new In Colors that will be available for the ensuing two years.  The great news is that some of the most popular In Colors from the past are returning and joining the core colour collections.

Here's what you've been waiting for... the new colour collections that will be released in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue!

In addition to new colours, Stampin' Up! have redesigned their ink pads.  The case is a new, more intuitive design and they've improved the formula of the ink too!  Click HERE to read about these fabulous new ink pads.
