If you’ve seen it once today, you’ve seen it a hundred times: Stampin’ Up! announced a complete Color Collection Renovation yesterday. 30 (yes, thirty) colors from the Color Families are retiring at the end of June, making way for 5 brand new colors and a host of beloved In Color selections. The Color Renovation will organize Stampin’ Up! colors into four Color Collections, each with 10 beautiful, trendy, inspiring colors.
Some of the colors that are being retired are certainly ready for that honor, but there are some that it will be a little harder to bid farewell. Today’s card uses the Split Negative technique (a great tutorial is at SplitCoastStampers) and features retiring color Cameo Coral:
- Season of Friendship and All Holidays stamp sets
- Whisper White, Cameo Coral and Basic Black card stock
- Cameo Coral and Basic Black Classic ink pads; Whisper White Craft ink pad
- Embossing Buddy, White Embossing Powder and Heat tool
- Trio Flower punch, Black Gingham ribbon and Black Stampin’ Write Journaler
I’m running a series of Technique Classes over the next few months – it’s a way to challenge myself to try new things – and this card is for the class on Saturday.
I’m a firm believer in change. It isn’t always easy, but it always presents new opportunities. As much as I have enjoyed some of these retiring colors, I am thrilled the Stampin’ Up! is moving forward with a contemporary new face lift and I think you’ll be really pleased when you see the new selections. That said, if you’re a fan of Cameo Coral, I suggest you head on over to my Online Store and stock up on ink pads, ink refills, and paper (don’t forget the 12×12!).
Aloha, Cameo Coral!
