Some of the biggest news to come from OnStage is new colours! It was time for a colour revamp where we see significant changes in the colour range – and I’m oh-so-excited by the choices Stampin’ Up! have made!!!
Some of the colours we’ve known as Brights, Regals, Neutrals & Subtles are retiring.
Four of the 5 In Colors from the 2016-2018 collection are retiring – Flirty Flamingo joins the core colour range (saying goodbye to Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach & Sweet Sugarplum).
Retiring colours makes way for new colours, so we are welcoming a mix of returning In Colors and brand new never before seen colours. Is your favourite coming back???
There’s still 4 main colour collections (with the same titles) plus 2 x 5 In Color Collections (10 In Colors in each catalogue) and 3 Basic colours (Whisper White, Basic Black, Very Vanilla) for a total of 53 colours.
How beautiful is that rainbow of colour!!!
As well as new colours to enjoy, we’re also getting a new stamp pad case!!
It’s stacked with innovative features – slimmer, stackable & easier to open. The new pads & refills will also contain a defoaming additive – which improves the consistency of the ink.
You’ll see these slowly integrate into the range over the next couple of months, starting with the 2018-2020 In Colors and rolling out to the new/returning colours and existing colours in the range.
The final piece of Stampin’ news is the release of the retirement list for the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue & 2018 Occasions Catalogue.
*** the online store is the easiest way to keep tabs on item availability.
If you have any favourites on the retirement list, you’ll want to order them soon. Availability of products is variable with many only being available while stocks last.
Note about ink pads on the retirement list: You’ll see all ink pads on the retirement list – whether they retire permanently or are being repackaged. Use the information in the first part of this blog post to check which colours are permanent retirements and which colours are continuing and will be available in the new style.
Basic Gray & Basic Black Archival Ink pads are both retiring. Basic Gray will return as a core colour in the classic ink pad style. StazOn Jet Black is returning as a permanent alcohol based ink option.
