I am so darn excited!!! Stampin' Up! just announced that starting with the new IBC in July, we will have a brand new, super trendy, and amazingly fresh color palette to work with! This is BIG news!!! And here they are:

In summary, there are now only 4 main color groups made up of 10 colors each: Brights, Neutrals, Regals and Subtles.
TEN current and previous in-colors are making a permanent come-back! They are: Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi, River Rock, Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red and Soft Suede!
There are SIX(ish) brand-new colors: Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft)!
We will still have in-colors in sets of 5 which will now stick around for 2 years instead of just one! BUT a new set will be introduced EVERY year... so this means when the 2011-2012 IBC gets introduced next year there will be 10 in-colors to play with!
With this exciting news, of course, comes the sad news that 30 colors are retiring. So.... if one or two of these colors happens to be YOUR favorite, make sure you stock up on those color supplies before July!
Also, there will be some really amazing package deals available in July allowing you to grab the new colors to complete the new color families with your existing supplies (i.e. watercolor crayons, marker sets, pastels, etc.). So stay tuned!!!
I can't wait to play with these beautiful new colors! Way to go SU!!! :o)
