VIDEO: What you need to know about retiring In Colors

what you need to know about retiring in colors


One of the many awesome features of Stampin Up products is our color coordination. This is what you need to know about retiring in colors. Everything matches, it’s like Gar-animals. Remember those clothes when we were kids? The monkey tags went with the monkeys, making it easy to dress your kids in matching clothes. Stampin up is like the Gar-animals of paper crafts lol.

  • Basics – Basic White, Very Vanilla & Basic Black
  • Regals – 10 Colors
  • Subtles – 10 Colors
  • Brights – 10 Colors
  • Neutrals- 10 Colors
  • In Colors – 10 Colors (2 sets of 5 colors)

The In Color collection is different from our Core Collection. It’s broken down into 2 groups of 5. Each year 5 of these 10 colors go away, and we get 5 new colors. It’s a great way to introduce fresh and trendy colors.

This is what you need to know about retiring in colors. The In Color Collections are named by the year they were introduced and the year they will be retired. For example the collection retiring this year is named 2019-2021 In Colors. They are retired with the Annual Catalog officially retiring May 3, 2021 (the date is marked on the back of the annual catalog).




Once the retirement list is announced, the In Color products in these colors will be “whiles supplies last” and often sell out quickly. See the video below for full details and products containing these colors.

I’m giving you this head’s up so you can start budgeting your purchases and collecting the In color products you want now. I recommend stocking up on ink pad refills and card stock in these colors early. This way you won’t have to worry about quick sell-outs and missing out on your fav colors.

When will the 2021 retirement list be announced?
The Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog will be ending on May 3. The list of products that will be discontinued is called the “Retirement List”. The official date of this year’s retirement list release has not been announced, but it will most likely be in April.

Where can I find the Stampin’ Up! catalogs?
You can find the current Stampin’ Up! Catalogs on my blog under the CATALOGS tab of my top menu.
