 Variety is the spice of life, especially in the world of color.  Stampin' Up makes a point to keep up with trends in the market.  They decided this year it was time to give our color collections a make-over.

There are still 4 core color collections - Brights, Neutrals, Subtles, and Regals.  


Changes by Core Collection:

  • Whisper White, Basic Black and Very Vanilla have moved to the new Basics Collection.
  • Chocolate Chip is retiring.
  • Night of Navy has moved here from the Regals Collection.
  • Mossy Meadow (an old favorite) is returning and is part of the Neutrals collection.
  • Merry Merlot and Gray Granite are brand new colors.
  • Real Red, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie are all moving to the Regals Collection.
  • Tangerine Tango and Tempting Turquoise are retiring.
  • Returning favorites are Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo and Coastal Cabana.
  • Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape are new colors.
  • Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder are all retiring.
  • Mint Macaron is returning.
  • Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather are all brand new.
  • Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo, Perfect Plum and Rose Red are all retiring.
  • Blackberry Bliss is returning.
  • Shaded Spruce is new.
The In Color Collections will still operate in the same way.  A new In Color Color Collection will debut every year while the oldest collection will retire.  This year 2016-18 Color Collection is retiring to make room for 2018-2020.
Aren't these colors great?!

If you need some ideas of how to mix and match these colors, look no further!  Stampin' Up has created a free on-line Color Coach demonstrating coordinating colors for the new and returning colors.  Use the links below and downline your own color coach.

First some 'refreshing news'!   Today Stampin' Up! has announced that they will be refreshing the four color families.  Don't freak out like I did!  Some of them I am really sad to see go - like Regal Rose and Baja Breeze (my favorites!) and Certainly Celery  and Pretty In Pink .... but I'm happy to see some others like Pear Pizazz and Calypso Coral staying around.  (I'm still looking for my favorite green - Kiwi Kiss but no such luck.)
  I love color!  However, I know it's essential to stay up-to-date with color trends. Stampin' Up! has tweaked our current colors. Just take a look at current fashion and home d├ęcor to see these new changes are right on target. DON'T MISS there's a brand new color under neutrals called Smoky Slate. I think I'm gonna like that one!
