Colour Renovation

Hello Everyone

So today's post is all about the Color Renovation, (or colour as we say here in the UK)


After much research Stampin' Up! have decided to re-organise their colour families. This means that we will be losing some colours, but gaining to scrummy new ones to replace them.
In the UK, we will be saying farewell to the colours on the left in September - until then you will still be able to get hold of your favourites, (stock levels permitting).

Click on the colour charts to see the full size version.


So - I here you asking - where are the new colours? Well they fit right in with the colours we are keeping and are sorted into four collections - brights - neutrals - regals & subtles.
We thought we would have to wait until October before we got to play with them - but SURPRISE - we are able to order a whole range of goodies in three of the new colours starting in May.
The new colours we can get RIGHT NOW are called
  • Soft Suede - a stunning brown with hints of green
  • Rich Razzleberry - a warm deep purple/pink
  • Melon Mambo - my favourite! A stunning tropical pink.
As well as the inks and cardstocks which will continue in the October catalogue, while stocks last we can also get co-ordinating Designer Papers, printed window sheets, (transparencies), and beautiful spotty ribbons - 13.7m long.
Let me know if you wish to place an order.
...Some are 'while stocks last' so be quick if you want them, but the inks and cardstock packs will be in the new catalogue.
So - ready to see a project using ALL the newly available colours? This is the swap I made for my quarterly training meeting.
I used the medallion background stamp, which I think looks great in the Rich Razzleberry! The flower is created using the Flower Accent and Dot,Dot,Dot stamps from the mini catalogue using the 'kissing' technique.
Hope you like!
