I am have some very exciting new for you friends! Stampin' Up! announced that they would be making changes to their color families beginning with the release on July 1 of the 2010-2011 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog. This change includes the return of some of my favorite In Colors to the regular line-up and a organizational overhaul.

Reorganization into 40 Stampin' Up! Core Colors in four color collections (10 colors in each--no longer called color families): Brights, Neutrals, Regals and Subtles
In Colors (old and current) make the regular line-up of Core Colors: Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango (used on my card on the right), River Rock, Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi. I loved River Rock, Baja Breeze, and Wild Wasabi and am thrilled to see them return!
Introducing five new Core Colors: Daffodil Delight (the perfect yellow), Early Espresso (deep brown and delicious), Cajun Craze (rich, rusty orange), Cherry Cobbler (relevant red), Marina Mist (not too green, not too gray shade of blue). I can't wait to see Daffodil delight!
Brights Collection: Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Real Red. I'm so pleased that Melon Mambo and Pacific Point are sticking around. I do hope we continue to offer the wonderful matching polka-dot ribbon!
Neutrals Collection: River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft), Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Basic Gray, Basic Black. Crumb Cake vs Kraft? A rose by any other name is still a rose - besides Crumb Cake is a lot more fun to say.
Regals Collection: Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, Always Artichoke, Garden Green, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Riding Hood Red, Cherry Cobbler, Bravo Burgundy. Riding Hood Red is so rich - glad to see that color is staying with us.
Subtles Collection: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Perfect Plum, Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, So Saffron. Bashful Blue is perfect for the vintage look and pair it up with Pink Pirouette - tres chic.
STAMPIN' UP! COLORS HEADED FOR RETIREMENT ON JULY 1:
Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal, Ballet Blue, Barely Banana, Blush Blossom, Bordering Blue, Brilliant Blue, Brocade Blue, Cameo Coral, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Gable Green, Glorious Green, Going Gray, Green Galore, Handsome Hunter, Lavender Lace, Lovely Lilac, Mellow Moss, Only Orange, Orchid Opulence, Pale Plum, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Really Rust, Ruby Red, Sage Shadow, Summer Sun, Taken with Teal, Yoyo Yellow.

But I trust the leadership at SU! and I am so excited to see some of my favorites return that I can adjust! If you have colors here that you can't live without, be sure you stock up!
2010-2011 IN COLORS: 5 new In Colors will be introduced with the Idea Book & Catalog July 1 (you can be sure you'll see sneak peeks from me in June). The new In Colors will be available for 2 years! Starting next year, there will be a total of 10 In Colors with five rotating out and five rotating in every year. Make sense.
HOT NEW ITEMS: Watch for details on new color kits, Stampin' Up! markers for all Core Colore (including former In Colors and the newest colors), expansion of colors for Stampin' Pastels and Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an awesome Color Coach tool that will make color selection better than ever!
