The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When they see changes happening, they review our color spectrum to ensure that we remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp!
There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics which includes 3 colors: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White.There are no changes to the In Color program. Every year we will continue to introduce five new In Colors that will be available for the ensuing two years.
On May 31, 2018, thirteen colors (pictured below) are retiring.
- Always Artichoke
- Chocolate Chip
- Elegant Eggplant
- Island Indigo
- Marina Mist
- Perfect Plum
- Pink Pirouette
- Rose Red
- Soft Sky
- Tangerine Tango
- Tempting Turquoise
- Wild Wasabi
- Wisteria Wonder
In addition, the 2016-2018 In Colors are retiring:
*Please note that while Flirty Flamingo is retiring as an In Color, it will continue to be available as part of our core color collection.
In addition to new colors, Stampin’ Up! also redesigned our ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and they’ve improved the formula of the ink, as well! (*FYI…You certainly do not need to replace all your current ink pads. The new ink pads will just be a little different design and slightly different size. They are slimmer and stackable. You will be able to purchase just the new colors without having to buy them all.) Here’s a look at the new stamp case.
I got my preorder the other day and I absolutely love the new colors!!! I can’t even pick a new favorite just yet (though they had me at Merlot)! I know my daughter is going to be thrilled with 2 new purples! Is there a new color that you are excited about? The new colors will be available in the 2018 Annual Catalog (available June 1st). Would you like to get your hands on these colors before then? Check back later this week to find out how! Or you could always sign up to be a demonstrator and preorder the new stuff for yourself! Contact me for more information!
Have a great day! It’s like the first day of school for me all over again. I’ve been unable to work for the last 3 months; however, after much Physical Therapy, I will be heading back into the classroom half days for now. I can’t wait to see my kids again!!!

I am just returning from Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage convention in Hartford, Conn. I had a blast! It was so much fun getting together with my stamping friends! Six of us rented a house just outside Hartford so we could extend our stay and have some stamping fun. We didn’t get much sleep and I laughed so hard my sides hurt! I have so much to share with you in the weeks ahead but first I want to make sure you don’t miss out on some important information…
*The retirement list is coming out today, April 9th at 1PM (MT). Be sure to check back! You can click on SHOP Stampin’ Up! from my blog (~3 PM EST) and then click on the retirement list. Items sell out fast once they release the list so if there is something you want, don’t wait! We will be saying good bye to the 2016 -2018 In Colors. I really love these colors!!!

Do you need some color inspiration? Stampin’ Up! created this cool chart showing many different color combinations using the new 2017 – 2019 In Colors. Just click on the chart below for a larger view and print ready copy.
Let’s get some inspirational chatter going…What’s your favorite color combination? You can probably guess mine by the number of cards I’ve made using it…yellow and black with white or vanilla. (Throw in some red accent pillows and you have my bedroom decor. LOL) I am also a huge fan of classic navy and white…which works well with just about any accent color (including my favorite, yellow). I find I tend to grab for the same colors again and again so I’m trying to challenge myself to try some different color combinations. Let’s inspire each other with some new color combinations to try! Leave a comment with your favorite color combinations.
Have a great weekend!
