ColorRefreshI have been doing the happy dance all day and stopped just long enough to share with you some OH SO EXCITING news!  Stampin’ Up just announced a wonderful COLOR REFRESH for our upcoming catalog!  I LOVE color – I mean I LOVE LOVE LOVE it so hearing about a change around of colors made my day!  Now, don’t panic!  If you have been a Stampin’ Up customer for a little while, you probably already have these colors in your collection.  There is really only one “brand brand new” color (Smoky Slate).

So, let’s talk color!  Just check out some of the returning IN COLORS from years past.  That’s the cool part about IN COLORS – the trend continues and so many of these colors are still SUPER trendy.  I had already planned a day of chocolate and ice cream to drown my sorrow for losing my precious Pool Party but LOOK!  I don’t have to!  So, it’s chocolate and ice cream to CELEBRATE that it is now a permanent Stampin’ Up color!

Well, now the bad news… we do have to say good-bye to a few colors…. I know, I know.  It’s hard.  It’s hard to say good-bye.  I hope that the short list of colors that will be leaving the Stampin’ Up Color Families will not be too hard for you. Most of these colors I rarely used.

ColorRefresh1NOW, let me also say this…whenever Stampin’ Up has given colors their pink slip, it was hard at first but honestly, I never missed them because the new colors brought so much FUN back into my stamping!  So, relax and enjoy this refresher!

These colors are available while supplies last BUT to help you get over the initial shock, how does FREE SHIPPING sounds?  Yep, April 6-8, 2013, Stampin’ Up is giving you ALL FREE SHIPPING!!!  Wahoo!  Don’t wait too long though because this is only through April 8, 2013!

FreeShippingWell, all this happy dancing has worn me out so I am going to call it a night.  Not to worry!  I have a Flash Card or two just WAITING for you!!!  YAY!  Now YOU can do the happy dance!  🙂

Have a great night everyone!  See ya tomorrow!

  1. Great post, Connie! Think I’ll borrow some of it for my blog. It’s great to hear enthusiasm for color change instead of groans. 🙂

    Love the new colors! Will miss some the retiring ones, but the replacements are just as nice, if not better! Can’t wait to get started using the new combinations!

    I think the changes they are making are great. I am in my fourth year of being a demonstrator. I have some of those colors I held onto. Like you, the retiring colors i barely used. I will miss pretty in pink…. but i love blushing bride from when it was an in color before… so that will help! I am always excited to see what changes the new catty will bring.

      Exactly! Stampin’ Up has always told us to hold on to our In Colors and I love that many of them are coming back. I’m like you – excited to see some dated colors go away and fresher colors join in!

    Baja Breeze and Bashful Blue!!?? I’m shocked! I’m glad they did keep Wisteria wonder but still…
    Ter 🙁

      Baja Breeze is one that I am sad to see go (the only one actually) BUT Soft Sky and Pool Party are SO much easier to work with! Trust me on this one… once you get Soft Sky in your stash, you won’t miss Bashful Blue at all!

    Ok, I will forgive them for not getting rid of Summer Starfruit because they kept Pool Party. 🙂
