New Colour Collections & New Classic Stampin' Pads
here they are.....the new and quite beautiful New Colour Collections. The colour families have had a little reshuffle.....the Brights are Brighter, the Subtles are Softer, the Neutrals have more options for choice and the Regals are stunning!
As you may notice, some of the colours have returned from retirement and other colours have moved 'families'. I can't wait to get my hands on them.
Here are the new In Colours for 2018/2020. These will be around for the next 2 years.
These are the colours that will be retiring May 31st. If you are totally in love with any, it's time to order ink refills and cardstock straight away, because they will go fast.
Information in the chart above shows how other products with retiring colours will be handled.
NEW CLASSIC STAMPIN' PADS
Stampin' Up! have redesigned their Ink Pads.
~ They are now STACKABLE!
~They are easier to open.
~They have a tighter fit between the lid and the case which helps stop the lid from accidentally becoming disconnected.
~New improved labels with bigger & clearer colour swatch on the top, also stickers that can be used on the end of each case to easily identify the colour. There is also a sticker to place inside the case for quick identification.
~ New improved ink formula that will reduce ink bubbles& help get a smooth coating of ink on the stamp.
How do I know if my Classic Ink Refill has the new improved ink?
New labeling on the refill will show you that it's the new ink.
Can I use old refill on a new ink pad or a new ink refill on an old ink pad?
Yes. But Basic Grey Archival & Basic Grey Classic Stampin' inks are the exception.
Never mix Archival and Classic inks.
Where is the archival ink?
This will no longer be a part of the collection. Basic Grey will now be part of the Classic Stampin' ink family.
What black inks are now available?
Tuxedo Black Memento Pad - to use with Blends & general black stamping needs.
Jet Black StazOn Pad - to use for watercolour and non porous surface stamping.
