The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of colour. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on colour trends across different markets and industries. When we see changes happening, Stampin’ Up! review their colour spectrum to ensure that they remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Colour Revamp!
In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colours, Stampin’ Up! decided it was time to give their colour collections a makeover.
With this revamp, you’ll not only have new products, but also have a new variety of shades that will inspire creativity and allow you to explore more sides of your crafting.
There are still four colour collections, each with ten colours. There is also a new colour group called Basics.
The Basics colour group are our Basic Black, Whisper White & Very Vanilla colours. This has meant that Stampin’ Up! could add an additional 3 colours to the Neutral Collection so we have more colours to play with.
Some additional colours have changed collections as well—you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections below. These changes were based on needing to maintain colour balance in our updated collections. For example, Poppy Parade is now the brightest red so it is part of the Brights collection.
If you have colours in your collection that you love then I suggest you purchase some ink refills as soon as possible, otherwise the colour will disappear and you may end up with a dry inkpad. I always suggest purchasing an ink refill at the time of buying your stamp pad.
Say hello to a new world of colourful creativity! Meet Stampin’ Blends, artist-quality alcohol markers in 12 exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours. To cover all the blending bases, we’re also offering a limited-time 16-card project kit and stamp set with beautiful line-art images.
Add just the right amount of colour where you need it with the brush tip or fine-point.
Each colour (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack.
Stampin’ Up! have done in-house testing for evaporation and life testing and are really happy with the results.
Press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation.
The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight fit for long-lasting colour.
The New Annual Catalogue for 2017/2018 has been released and I have loved playing with all the new products that are available. I absolutely love the colours in the Colour Theory DSP. Berry Burst, Dapper Denim, Old Olive & Crushed Curry. I decided to use these colours and the dsp to create a little box with a handle. The inspiration came from a fellow demonstrator Nikki Joyce from the UK. She shared a bag with note cards on a facebook page I’m a member of.
The Blooms and Bliss stamp set is one of those sets that can be so versatile for back grounds. You can easily use it to make your own Designer Papers.
When I go searching for ideas for Thank you’s for my customers I go straight to one website, Pootles.co.uk. Sam Donald has so many fantastic ideas for Thank you’s. As I was searching through her videos on Youtube I came across this notepad that she did using the colours from some current designer papers. I thought that was a great idea as a thank you to my customers. I was inspired by the Blooms & Bliss DSP so used those colours and the Blooms & Wishes stamp set to make these gorgeous cards & notepads.
All my customers who purchased through me in June received this notepad & card. I didn’t write in the card as I wanted them to be able to send it onto someone themselves. I love this set and the colours are just divine together.
