The word is out!! 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. I am so energized by these hip, fashion forward colors, 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, River Rock, Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi
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)

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!
