It’s Time for a Colour Refresh


Breaking news from Stampin' Up:

In 2010 when we did our big colour renovation we shared our plans for smaller colour refreshes every 3 to 5 years to keep our colours on trend. Well it has been 3 years and we are excited to announce that the upcoming 2013-2014 annual catalogue will include 10 new colours!


"What does this mean for me?"


You'll be able to get your hands on the exciting new colours when the catalogue comes out in July. These new colours will complement the continuing colours fabulously, and will keep things FUN and FRESH. Papercrafters have been begging Stampin' Up! for the re-introduction of many of these colours! It's very exciting.


But for now you may want to stock up on products in your favourite retiring colours.

Inks, cardstock and accessories (ribbons, brads, etc) in the retiring colours will ONLY be available while supplies last. They may last until the catalogue ends, but it's also possible that they will sell out. We just don't know! If you KNOW you'll be wanting these items, then don't forget to order them before it's too late.

The big ones to remember are the ink refills and extra cardstock! You'll want to grab those if you plan to keep using BAJA BREEZE, PRETTY IN PINK, BASHFUL BLUE, CERTAINLY CELERY, REGAL ROSE, RIDING HOOD RED, BRAVO BURGUNDY, NOT QUITE NAVY, MORE MUSTARD or RIVER ROCK.

Exciting News: Colour Renovation

Published by under Colour Renovation

Stampin' Up! announces a Colour Renovation!

This is amazing and wonderful news!! When the next big catalogue is released in September we'll be saying goodbye to some existing colours, and a big warm HELLO to 5 brand new colours. WooHooo!

Not only that, some of our current and past IN COLOURS will become part of the 4 core collections.

Although it will be a little sad to bid farewell to some of the colours we know so well, there's still plenty of time to stock up on cardstock and ink refills… 4 months in fact!

You may wonder why this colour change is happening?

Well, it wasn't hard to work out (going by sales mainly) that some colours were loved more than others. It doesn't make much sense to continue stocking and offering product that isn't being used! It makes sense to stay ahead of the game and keep up to date with colour trends (think back to the colours of the 1970s and you'll know what I mean!).

Another reason why this change is happening is because WE ASKED FOR IT! The In Colours from the past few years were hugely popular and were seriously gorgeous. It was too sad to see them go forever… well now some of them will be back (including most of our current In Colours – yippeee). Some colours have to retire to make way for the new ones! It's that simple.

You'll hear more about this over the next few months, but for now I've got a super simple project to share…

No stamping on this card at all!!!

The main panel is from the Cottage Wall DSP (Designer Series Paper). The sentiment was a rub-on on Rich Razzleberry cardstock, and punched out with the Wide Oval punch. The gorgeous polka-dot Razzleberry ribbon finishes it off quickly and easily. 

I'll be back tomorrow with some fun Tess cards.
Happy Stamping,
