WOW do I have News for you, When Stampin Up announced that we could share this information with imagine my delight at all the excitement it was going to bring.....
As I am sure many of you would know Stampin Up is world renown for its amazing colour's, co-ordination with other products such as Card stock, Designer Series Paper, Ribbons, Ink pads and Markers.
So when they released a Colour renovation it really had alot of us thinking what now.......Well here it is Girls Straight from Head office and what excitement there is. Now I must stress these changes will not take place until SEPTEMBER 2010.

Stampin Up really have excelled in getting out with the old and in with the New as they make over there wonderful Colours to bring YOU 4 BRAND NEW Colour families and a collection of BRAND NEW colours, Don't worry we are keeping some of the favourites we all have to have like Chocolate Chip( Thank Goodness I say). But they are introducing some wonderful NEW colours Never seen before. "KRAFT" is getting a NEW name and "Crumb Cake" and will now have a co-ordinating Ink Pad.

The new colour palette is organized into four collections: Subtles, Brights, Regals, and Neutrals. You will see 25 of our current colours remaining, and ten past In Colors returning as core colours, and the addition of five new core colours. Check the colour charts to see what the new collections look like, and what colours will be retiring. To view a larger picture please click on the chart below.

Now what about In Colours I here you saying, Well this is where it gets really fun and very exciting. (And possibly a little confusing, please comment below if you need clarification.)

There will be 5 New In Colours coming out in September this year then each year Stampin’ Up! will introduce five new In Colours, and they will remain for two years. This means that the 2010-2011 In Colors will be introduced this year, but will not be retired until the 2012-2013 colours are introduced. Then next year another 5 new InColors will be introduced alongside the 2010-2011 colours. Even better news for us Australians… no more waiting forever to get the yummy InColours that our US sisters have because this September we will be getting the same colour. So from the 2011-2012 Release You will have a total of 50 Colours to choose from.

Now I know there will be a little tear or 2 over colours we will be loosing but now really is a Fantastic Time to stock up on all those colours You just can not be with out. I would also recommend Now is a Fantastic Time to begin collecting your Ink Refills as when we draw closer to August some colour's will "Sell Out" Quickly and I would not want you to miss out. I will be running some SPECIAL offers and Promotion's over the next 3-4 Months to allow you to collect your wanted Colours at a special price. Watch my Blog for these Specials.
Tell me what you think... Add a comment below and I will send 1 lucky person a FREE INK PAD (available in AUST/NZ) ONLY. It really is a wonderful way to let StampinUp know what we all feel about this..


  1. the old colours didn't bother me so but I'm super excited to hear that Ridding Hood Red is staying a little longer

  2. Great idea to have 4 colour collection, this will definately make organising our inks easier and getting a wonderful result on our cards and scrapbooking pages. Narelle I'll need another party in Sept. Thanks again for a great Fiday night, creating beautiful cards and a box with great company.

  3. Sad to see some of the colours go ... but it's great to see a couple of my favourite in colours are here to stay.

    Guess I can't have it all ways !!!!


  4. Love it, love it, Love it, can;t wait
