Stampin’ Up! Color Refresh


I’m still catching up with my Stampin’ Up! business after a crazy busy two months, so by now, the news about Stampin’ Up’s color refresh has been out there for the last few weeks. Every five or so years, SU looks at the existing color families and does a refresh, adding brand new colors, bringing some retired colors back and retiring others. I was very excited to see the new colors, including a number of retired In Colors from the last few years that have been brought back and incorporated into the four color families! We also have five new In Colors for 2023-2025. While I am always sad to see some favorite colors go, I’m delighted to have fun new colors to play with! Watch this video for a quick overview of the color refresh.

2023-2025 In Colors

The new 2023-2025 In Colors are here!  Copper Clay, Wild Wheat, Boho Blue, Moody Mauve, Pebbled Path. The colors are quite different than what some of you are probably used to seeing – not brights, not pastels.  They are more neutral and subdued, however, as soon as I saw them I loved them!  They are going to work really well with nature and animal images and for masculine cards, and also act as great supporting colors to make others pop. 

Updated Color Families

These are the newly-updated color families. There are four brand new colors: Azure Afternoon, Bubble Bath, Lemon Lolly and Pecan Pie.  I especially love Lemon Lolly and Bubble Bath – so pretty! The returning colors are all past In Colors that have been retired over the years and I’m so happy to see some of my favorites back again! The colors are: Lost Lagoon, Pretty Peacock, Blueberry Bushel, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Misty Moonlight.  The good news – one of the retiring colors, Fresh Freesia, is returning and is now in the Subtles Collection – yay! We now have a nice group of browns and and a greatly expanded selection of blues, both of which I felt had been lacking.

Now, for the retiring colors – fifteen in all.  I tried guessing which colors would go and did a pretty good job!  I guessed So Saffron, Pacific Point, Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand, Merry Merlot and yes, they are gone.  Other retiring colors are Mango Melody, Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry. Pear Pizzazz, and Mint Macaron. Big surprises for many demonstrators were Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry! The 2021-2023 In Colors are also retiring (except for Fresh Freesia), so Pale Papaya, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Polished Pink. 

Stampin’ Up! has a new Color Coach, which gives color combination suggestions for each of the colors in the four color families and the In Colors. If you struggle with putting colors together, this is a great tool! Click here to download the Color Coach and have fun exploring!
