Stampin’ Up! have announced that in the next big Catalog debuting in July there will be a BIG color renovation – this is very exciting news as we are seeing the release of 5 BRAND NEW colors along with the return of TEN previous In Color favorites!  I am sooo excited for the return of Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze – my absolute favs!!!

Additionally ALL colors will be available in Markers, Watercolor Crayons and Pastels – this is fab news for you watercolorers out there!  These colors and options will be available to everyone from July 1st – but if you are a demonstrator you get to order them early – not a demonstrator yet?  Find out more about joining my Ink Spot Stampers group by clicking HERE

To make room for these new colors some must retire from the collection…if you need to stock up on any of your favorites that will soon be retiring, you can order through your Demonstrator or if you do not have one you can order directly online 24/7 by clicking HEREI would urge you to order sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment…
